Twitch streamer Forsen’s latest attempt at a Minecraft speedrun got a big reaction from rival xQc, whose reaction to the failed run made viewers laugh at its dramatic nature.
Speedrunning in video games has become a bigger and bigger feature in the gaming community. In particular, streamers now have dedicated accounts or days to speedrunning, playing through popular games and trying to beat previously set records.
Whether it be speedrunning whole games or simply trying to finish a specific challenge or section as quickly as possible, viewers love to see their favorite streamers rise up to the challenge. One game that has created a strong speedrunning community is Minecraft.
Over the years Forsen and xQc have been beating each other’s records in dramatic fashion. Some records only being beaten by a few seconds. Back in April 2021, Forsen famously completed the game in just 20 minutes and 38 seconds, just seven seconds faster than xQc. The two have gone back and forth online as well, egging each other on and fuelling their playful Minecraft rivalry.
