Popular live streamer and former professional Overwatch player Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has said that he is “kind of done” with the game after having his account suspended again.

Previously given a 15 day ban from Overwatch in August 2018, shortly before he played for Canada at the Overwatch World Cup, xQc has once again had his account suspended this time for 24 days.

Last time, it was for a report of abusive chat, which xQc played down as “banter” – on this occasion the reason for his ban is unclear, but it is rumored to be similar to his ban for toxicity previously.

After discovering he had been suspended, xQc says that he didn’t even receive a warning, which is what usually happens when you are banned for toxic behavior.

“Normally they give you a warning, if you talk shit too much and it says like ‘you’ve been reported a lot for talking shit’ and then you get banned. I didn’t get warned, but let’s be real, we’ve been pretty toxic about the game.”

After letting the news sink in, xQc weighed up whether he would come back and continue to play Overwatch as his main game after his suspension is up.

“I don’t think I want to be a part of it anymore and give it all my energy and all my passion for it.” He says, closing  “I think I’m kind of done with it. I think I’m kind of done.”

As for what he will play and stream instead, xQc says he will likely move into variety streaming full time, where he streams any type of game, especially new releases.

Many other former professional players in a particular game have taken the same route, and many of the most popular streamers on Twitch are variety streamers, including big names such as ‘LIRIK’ and ‘shroud’.

Despite his roots and background in Overwatch, much of xQc’s fan base watches the streamer for his own personality, rather than the game specifically he is playing, so his popularity isn’t likely to diminish even he moves on from Overwatch permanently.

It is another example of disciplinary action taken against xQc by Blizzard, after his multiple in-game bans and his suspension from the Overwatch League, which ultimately led to him being release by the Dallas Fuel.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
