Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is known for his quick speech and explosive rants, but the Overwatch pro’s anger was turned up to a whole new level, after his experience with CSGO was riddled with setbacks that had him slamming his fists with rage. 

xQc is considered one of the best tanks in Overwatch, even making team Canada’s roster for the Overwatch World Cup in 2019. The Canadian has also amassed a huge following on Twitch where he streams a variety of games.

While the streamer has been known to go off when something angers him, his awful experience with CSGO on September 1st saw him seeing red like never before.

xQc got mad at another player

Things got off to a rough start for Twitch star, after one of the players in his CS:GO ranked match decided to pause. The Canadian was not happy with it and went off, yelling at him for wasting his time.

“I have never paused the game before. I have never asked for pause, I will never ask for a pause ever. So tell me, with what it’s in the mind of a piece of **** like you, why do you pause games? F***** tell me!” he screamed at the player.

Valve CorporationCSGO is still one of the most popular games on Twitch.

Clearly trolling, the other player began to act like he was crying, which only irritated the Overwatch pro further. “Look at me, and tell me!  Why would you pause!?” he screamed.

The other player mockingly said he had to pee, which xQc replied “Then why are you telling me this? Why? So I give a ***? I don’t give a *** about it. Why don’t you go take a piss!”

xQc finally lost it

As if to pour salt in the wound, the Canadian streamer had just killed someone, when he turned down a corridor and was killed himself, which sent him into an absolute fit of rage.

Th Overwatch pro slammed his fists down hard on the desk repeatedly and then launched into a angry rant.

“I don’t get it! When I shoot while jumping, my bullets fly to Jupiter, dude! When I am moving or jumping, my bullets go over here!”

He stood up and physically acted out his bullets flying with his arms before continuing, and shouted “They go to f**** Africa! How? Can someone explain to me?!”

While people are used to the streamer going off from time to time, the Twitch star seemed angrier than usual at his CSGO mishaps.

xQc is one of the most popular Twitch streamers on the platform, with over 1.5 million followers as of the time of this article.

IEM Katowice 2021 quarterfinals preview

IEM Katowice 2021 has already served up some amazing matchups, and now the quarterfinals are upon us. With CIS supremacy sweeping the CS:GO server, Astralis stand as the lone force to try and stave the three Russian squads away.

Six teams have qualified for the playoffs at IEM Katowice 2021, and four of them are from CIS. Gambit, Natus Vincere, and Virtus.pro are hungry for quarterfinals success, while Spirit awaits one of them in the semifinals.

It’s put more pressure now, more than ever, onto two stalwarts of their respective scenes ⁠— Denmark’s (and Europe’s) Astralis, and North America’s Liquid. The latter looks reinvigorated with Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo in the squad, while the former are struggling to reach their peak online.

Ahead of this weekend’s action, let’s take a look at the two quarterfinals ⁠— Gambit vs Natus Vincere and Virtus.pro vs Astralis ⁠— and what you should expect.

Gambit vs Natus Vincere

The battle for CIS supremacy will reign on in the quarterfinals of IEM Katowice when Gambit takes on Natus Vincere. This has been a historically Na’Vi-sided matchup, to the surprise of absolutely no one.

Gambit went on a lower-bracket tear to make it to the quarterfinals of IEM Katowice, and they won’t let their rivals stand in their way. Young gun Dmitry ‘sh1ro’ Sokolov is really trying to make a name for himself as CS:GO’s next big AWPer, trying to reach the heights of idols like Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Vastyliev.

Natus Vincere Socios s1mple

Seeing the two face off will be a treat in this quarterfinal, but don’t expect the reigning champions to take it easy. Na’Vi are really finding their stride now, and despite losing to Team Liquid to find themselves in this position, you can’t keep them down for long.

Denis ‘electronic’ Sharipov and s1mple are bouncing off each other better than ever, and it really feels like a repeat of IEM Katowice 2020 is on the cards. Na’Vi didn’t make it easy for themselves there in groups, before proceeding to demolish Liquid, Astralis, and G2 Esports without dropping a single map in playoffs.

Gambit’s going to have to be prepared for a Na’Vi they’ve never faced before. It’s the biggest stage this matchup has happened on, and while the potential for an upset is there, you’d have to back Na’Vi to finish strong at Katowice.

Virtus.pro vs Astralis

Virtus.pro and Astralis marks the first rematch of the StarLadder Major Berlin 2019 final. Back then, Astralis were decimating anyone in their patch, and VP (then Avangar) were collateral as the Danes took home their fourth major. However, it’s funny how things change in 18 months.

Astralis’ experimentation with six and seven-man rosters has led nowhere, and with the core five back together, they’ve been struggling to get back into gear. Virtus.pro, on the other hand, has started 2021 on fire with a win at cs_summit 7 (where Astralis didn’t play).

One also has to look at how far Virtus.pro has come since then. “Jame Time” might still be the slogan, but everyone from Timur ‘buster’ Tulepov to Mareks ‘YEKINDAR’ Galinskis have been pulling their weight. The team isn’t as reliant on Jame’s AWP to win as they once were, and he’s taken to the IGL role like a fish to water.

If there is one time where Virtus.pro could get their revenge, it’s now. VP have taken down Vitality and FURIA ⁠— two of the best teams in the world ⁠— to get here, and Astralis have been hot and cold to start off the year. The tournament remaining online likely doesn’t help Astralis either.

However, you can never count out the Danes. Much like Gambit vs Natus Vincere, the real big ticket matchup will be Jame vs Nicolai ‘device’ Reedtz. The AWPers will once again prove to be the deciding factor in this matchup, and if history is anything to go by, it should be explosive.
