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.

Counter-Strike tournament series BLAST Premier has named Nubia Technology as its very first mobile phone partner.

Nubia’s gaming phone, the RedMagic 5S, will be advertised during the BLAST Premier Fall Series starting on October 26.

Not only will Nubia’s phone be shown through in-game branding, the technology company will host giveaways where fans can win their own RedMagic 5S and behind-the-scenes access to the tournament.

On-screen talent like Anders and Semmler will also get their hands on the phone.

The event will be played online but features teams from both Europe and North America.

While this partnership doesn’t include a mobile esports tournament it’s clear that BLAST are willing to embrace and encourage mobile gaming, which could be a sign of things to come in the future. They have been expanding their reach into new games in 2020, including Valorant and Dota 2, so perhaps a mobile title could be next.

“We are excited to showcase Nubia’s impressive RedMagic 5S gaming phone to the esports ecosystem via our global audience,” said Leo Matlock, BLAST’s commercial director. “This partnership is a strong fit with both brands sharing a major focus on innovation, technology and gaming – and with more and more people gaming and watching BLAST Premier on their phones every day – their product should be something that naturally resonates with our fans.”

All 12 teams in the BLAST Premier Fall Series will play from Europe, making for one of the first international Counter-Strike competitions since the first quarter of 2020.

The phone was designed with gaming in mind.

With events moving online in March due to the global health situation, Europe and American teams have typically been split up due to poor ping posing a threat to competitive integrity.

European sides Astralis, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, G2 Esports, OG, Team Vitality, FaZe Clan, and BIG will face off against American teams Complexity, MIBR, Evil Geniuses, and FURIA at BLAST Premier.
