Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel flew into a fit of rage when a teammate in his League of Legends match went away from their keyboard. The Overwatch pro then explained why those that ‘AFK’ should be “banned.”

One of the most annoying aspects of playing online games is when a team member suddenly goes ‘Away From Keyboard’ and your entire match is thrown. It’s even more frustrating for team-based titles like CS:GO or DOTA 2.

Twitch star xQc felt this pain during his February 8th broadcast when a player during his competitive League of Legends stream quit playing. The Canadian launched into an explosive rant on why it should be a bannable offense.

xQc erupts over AFK players

The streamer was in the middle of playing League of Legends when he realized that one of his teammates was no longer active. Seething with anger, he then turned towards his chat and aired his frustrations.

“So is he going to come back? Or is he just AFK!? He just went AFK he’s just gone. I’m not kidding, I’ve always advocated for this. If you AFK in a game you should be banned for like a couple of days!” he raged.

The Overwatch pro went further and exclaimed that there is never an excuse for it. “I don’t give a f**k! You should never ever DC a game. It’s absolutely unreasonable to DC from a game. There is no excuse. Zero. Lost power? F**k you! Your fault!”  he yelled.

He then reiterated his point saying “F**k it one day ban!” When challenged by some viewers in chat on his stance, he defended his views, stating, “it’s a competitive game, man. You don’t f**k around, man!. You want to f**k around? Play casuals, b**ch!”

As xQc’s match continued to fall apart due to the absent player, his frustrations began to boil over. “It’s so f**king tilting!” he screamed. “That’s 60 minutes for every team member here. That’s 5 hours combined of lost human time!”

The pro then went off on a viewer in his chat who was arguing with him over being this upset. “That’s why you should be banned for a full day. I don’t give a f**k dude! So f**king annoying!” A poorly timed donation then caused him to snap further. “Dude, shut the f**k up. I don’t give a f**k!”

Regardless of whether you agree with the Canadian personality or not, MOBA’s suffer from players who AFK due to their long play sessions, and not being able to easily quit.

Despite his frustrations, xQc is one of the top streamers on Twitch with over two million followers. He also consistently pulls in thousands of viewers a broadcast, making him one of the most watched channels on the platform.

Nessa Barrett has been accused of throwing Mads Lewis some shade after hiding comments from fans on Twitter suggesting the two collaborate, but the TikTok star has hit back and claimed nothing was shady about it at all.

Nessa Barrett and Mads Lewis were inseparable once upon a time. The two of them were an unstoppable force, with millions of fans between them across Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.

Unfortunately, it seems like their friendship came to a bitter end after Nessa Barrett stopped following Mads Lewis on social media and deleted the many pictures she had of them posing together.

However, Mads is still following Nessa on Instagram and hasn’t taken down their pictures together, which had led to their fans and followers believing the bitterness is one-sided. Some have even speculated that their falling out might tie into the drama between Nessa and Chase Hudson.

Either way, it seems like something happened between them. Now, Nessa Barrett has been accused of adding more fuel to the fire after many claimed she shaded her ex-best friend once again.

Did Nessa Barrett shade Mads Lewis on Twitter?

Nessa Barrett posted a harmless Tweet stating, “Feature ideas for a song or just curious.” However, many of her followers weren’t sure what she meant and chimed in with countless collaboration suggestions.

A portion of them rummaged through a list of replies she had hidden and discovered Mads Lewis was a common denominator. “Pleasure feature Avani or Mads or Josh,” wrote one fan. “MADS,” and “Madison Lewis,” wrote two others.

Some of them found it a little odd and claimed it was another example of her throwing Mads Lewis some shade.

This prompted Nessa Barrett to respond, saying, “A lot of [people] didn’t know what I meant and were commenting song ideas to my tweet so I liked the first one that I saw was actually giving me feature ideas,” she said.

 “Nothing [about] this was supposed to be shady,” she added. “I just liked the first one that I saw.”

Needless to say, the situation and her response sparked a bit of division on social media.

Some believe there is unquestionable truth in her words, and the whole situation has been blown way out of proportion.

Others claim it’s pretty clear Nessa Barrett wasn’t keen on seeing Mads Lewis name in the suggestions, so she filtered them out.

Either way, it seems like the falling out is still fresh, and they won’t be mending their friendship anytime soon. However, time heals all wounds, and many mutual fans would love to see them reunited once again down the track.
