Fans don’t always get a behind the scenes look at their favorite Overwatch professional-turned-streamer has become a popular channel on the livestreaming platform, regularly wracking up thousands of viewers to watch him rage for one reason or another.

While that is what viewers can usually expect from his broadcasts, anyone who tuned in during the start of his May 3 stream got a huge surprise as he turned the camera away from himself and gave some shine to his set-up.

xQc’s messy streaming set-up 

Showing off a set-up usually means that streamer will point the camera at their computer and describe what type of mammoth build is inside it. Others will show off their incredible detailed monitors and how they use them to control their stream with ease.

However, xQc decided to show off his keyboard, which, of course, was missing a few keys because of his constant desk smashing. Yet, those missing keys didn’t leave too much free space as dust and other general mess had filled the gaps.

“We already know the keyboard is dirty, so, whatever dude,” said xQc, before quickly moving away from his keyboard as fans spammed his chat with messages and emotes about how strange it looked.

Yet, he wasn’t finished there and quickly flipped his camera to the pile of trash that had formed to his side. The streamer explained how his mom had been away for a few days and that no one had fixed up the mess.

“It’s looking pretty rough out here boys,” stated xQc, before picking up a plate of old food.

“Dude, look on the fucking pickle, that’s actual mold is it not?” asked the streamer, almost pretty pleased with his mess. “What’s the grey thing right there? Is that rot? Oh dude, that is fucking disgusting.”

Twitch viewers may have been left shocked by Tyler1’s set-up and just how basic and unkept it was compared to other streamers, but at least he didn’t have rotting food lying around.

xQc’s regular viewers will probably be hoping that his mom returns from her hiatus to sort his living situation out so that aren’t put off their own food if the streamer decides to show his set-up off again.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
