Since departing the Overwatch League back in March 2018, xQc has gone from strength to strength with his live streams - racking up over 1.4 million followers on Twitch. Thousands of fans tune in on a daily basis to watch the Canadian flip out at whatever game he’s playing or give his opinion on some ongoing drama.

Yet, it appears as if he’s switching things up and looking to take his newfound interest in the game Kerbal Space Program and get Elon Musk on board for at least one stream.

The former Dallas Fuel star didn’t opt to send a video message or even make an on-stream plea, but instead tagged Musk in a tweet with his offer during his July 28 broadcast - where he was, again, playing the popular Kerbal Space Program. 

“Hey @elonmusk, my community and I would love to learn about rockets and livestream a tour at @SpaceX,” he tweeted. “It would be amazing, maybe some Overwatch duos after?”

While his ever-helpful viewers have tried to chip in with their own advice and tutorials for the rocket-building title, getting someone with the experience of Musk on-board will absolutely help xQc master space travel.

After all, despite the fan assistance, he needs all the help he can get to even break into space and maintain orbit after seeing some of his creations come hurtling back to the ground with an incredible dire outcome. 

Despite not replying to xQc’s offer at the time of writing, the SpaceX and Tesla CEO has already shown a willingness to get on board with internet personalities.

Back in February, after an eye-watering number of pleas from fans, Musk helped YouTube sensation PewDiePie in his fight against T-Series by appearing on his meme review show. He’s taken his own memes to the next level with a bizarre song about Harambe and using Call of Duty: Zombies to pay respects to a dead Nasa rover

Musk has even admitted to being an Overwatch fan in the past, revealing on Twitter that he opts to choose Soldier 76 instead of some more powerful heroes. 

It remains to be seen if the pair actually do link up, but it definitely isn’t out of the question - especially if xQc continues his interest in space exploration and Musk wants to take his Overwatch skills to the next level.
