Twitch star Felix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel is one of the biggest streamers out there, and he wants to keep that going, even if it means he doesn’t have much of a life outside his work.

Being a successful streamer doesn’t happen overnight, and it requires a lot of things to right. The most important part of it all is putting the time in.

The former Dallas Fuel pro seems to know this and is keeping the grind up. However, many fans pester xQc about why he doesn’t hang out with other streamers, Mizkif, for example, and he finally became fed up with it and exploded on his chat.

Blizzard EntertainmentxQc represented the Dallas Fuel banner in the Overwatch League.

“You get mad when I don’t want to go out with them,” he started. “I couldn’t give a flying f*ck about any of these f*ckers. Did I say that right? I’m gonna say it again. I could give a flying, walking rat’s f*ck about any of these f*ckers. Do you get that? Is that sinking in?”

Xqc doesn’t hate his fellow streamers, so he explained why he hasn’t been as social with them.

“Now, now, what I’m trying to explain to you, ok, has nothing to do with friendship or anything dude,” he said. “I’m in a spot where I don’t wanna hang out; I don’t wanna go outside, I don’t wanna go flying, I don’t wanna do sh*t, dude. I need to get my stable base back on track, and I’ll do whatever the f*ck I think is necessary to do that, and the rest is irrelevant to me.”

Rising to the top of Twitch relies a lot on consistency, but streamers have to be aware of burnout. Streaming the entire week takes its toll, especially if your chat becomes toxic.

Large streamers who have abandoned the platform have spoken out on the issue repeatedly. Former Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins spoke about the toxicity in his chat, and it was one of the reasons he eventually packed up shop and moved over to Mixer. Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has also talked about how his Mixer chat has been less toxic than Twitch, which has ultimately made the experience “more enjoyable” for him to stream.

Xqc is a streamer who really embraces his chat and interacts with it just as much, if not more, than other streamers of his size.

It hasn’t seemed to have much of an impact on him as of yet, but only time will tell if it eventually takes a toll.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
