xQc explains the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways to simp

Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is never one to shy away from giving his opinion on current events, and with the concept of “simping” now being more popular than ever, the French-Canadian star decided to explain his take on the subject.

“Simping” commonly refers to an act where men project their entire self-identity on a female personality online, and do or say things they may not agree with because they believe this woman would want them to do so. This can include things like giving them money or gifts in exchange for their time or attention – or, in some cases, a perceived relationship with the woman in question.

“There is a right way and bad way of using it,” xQc said of the term while pulling up Microsoft Paint to visualize his thoughts for the chat.

After drawing a stick figure man to act as a surrogate for his viewers, along with a woman (who he jokingly dubbed “the juice”), Lengyel explained that men make maneuvers to acquire said “juice.”

“Maneuvers might put you in a position of submission sometimes,” he continued. “Like, actual simping.”

According to the former Overwatch League pro, it all comes down to the time and price you’re willing to pay for the chance to get “the juice.”

“Let’s say you do something that costs, say, 10% of your income. Which is a lot. And gives you, 1% [chance] of getting the juice. That is absolute simp mode!” he blasted. “But what if something costs you like ten minutes of ‘simping’ for 75% of getting the juice? Hell f**king yeah, dude!”

“It’s such a low investment and a high return rate! Who gives a f**k? I’m getting the juice, yo!” he exclaimed.

However, there are some “simps” who take the concept way too far, and the Canadian couldn’t resist roasting those who make all simps look bad.

“The problem is, real-life simps are kinda like this,” he went on, adding another image to his work of art. “$10,000 for 0.001% chance of juice. That’s just f**king weird! That is so simp zone, you can’t even fathom the idea.”

For Lengyel, his biggest issue was that his last two examples often get mixed up, which creates a “disconnect in the language” and causes people to start “malding.”

As internet culture continues to evolve, we should be thankful that xQc is right there to assist with all the new definitions and terms.

NRG unveils insane $10 million ‘Gaming Fantasy Factory’

American organization NRG Esports has revealed the ‘NRG Castle,’ an over the top, $10M gaming facility designed to mirror Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory but for esports competition and content creation.

Custom gaming facilities have been all the rage throughout 2020. From the fresh 100 Thieves Compound unveiled in January to a multimillion-dollar Fortnite team house, many top orgs have been jumping on the trend.

NRG is the latest to reveal its very own property in Los Angeles with the NRG Castle. While it’s not an actual castle from the outside, it’s an enormous, multi-level spot with one of the more unique looks in the industry. It’s not a standard house, nor is it a traditional office space.

It’s a fully customized facility designed from the ground up to have a completely original look. Here’s what’s inside the 20,000 square foot “Gaming Fantasy Factory.”

The NRG Castle has been designed as a hub for viral gaming content.

Right when you enter the so-called castle, you’ll be met with a red carpet leading into an open area with a custom screen. A huge projector is all set up with one of every single gaming console equipped. 

“You can technically play every video game ever created on this giant movie screen,” Executive Producer Grady Rains explained.

While that’s an eye-grabbing introduction to the facility, it then leads through to a one of a kind, million-dollar “double-decker gaming couch.” On the bottom, there’s a circular couch to lay in while gaming. However, there’s also a ladder to reach a second floor, along with a slide to quickly get back down.

A $1 million gaming couch fits right in with the crazy design of the NRG Castle.

All of that for a single couch is certainly fitting with the broad idea for the NRG Castle. The LA facility was “made specifically for the creation of over the top and viral gaming content.”

Adding to this over the top theme, water fountains aren’t just regular water fountains here. Instead, they “spit out energy drink.”

Of course, there’s actual office space tucked away in the building as well. It’s already come in handy back to back Overwatch League champions the San Francisco Shock.

This is only the grand reveal of the NRG Castle, so expect to see tons of unique content coming out of this location in future.
