Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel thinks that Ninja will win Streamer of the Year at the Esports Awards, but also offered his own views on what makes streamers special.

The former Overwatch pro believes that numbers are the most important factor for the Esports Awards to determine Streamer of the Year.

xQc was responding to fans in his chat when the subject of Streamer of the Year came up. His fans said they would vote for him, which caused xQc to respond.

Ninja is going to win it. I appreciate your votes though, thank you so much for you guys believing in me.

He would go on to say that there is no good way to determine who the “best” streamer is.

The best streamer might have 60 viewers and never grow from there. Maybe he is good at building a community and doing exactly what they want in a way that he likes it.

Since xQc believes the best streamer can’t be quantified, popularity might be the only way to determine the Streamer of the Year award.

I like the gesture [for Streamer of the Year] but numbers speak and Ninja popped off. I believe that Ninja deserves it.

Ninja’s Twitch channel hit almost 250,000 subscribers at one point, by far the most on the platform.

xQc is also popular on the streaming service and is estimated to be in the top 20 in subscriber count.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
