Livestream fails are some of the funniest parts of Twitch, but this spam encountered by Overwatch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel borders on slightly horrifying as well.

As xQc was in an Overwatch match defending on Watchpoint Gibraltar, everything seems pretty normal until his stream’s donation voice starts saying “seven.”

A sudden influx of viewers, and their bots, spamming “seven” thousands of times all at once seemed to make xQc’s donation system freak out the same way he does most of the time.

Any time someone donates money or bits during his stream, they can include a message that’s read with an automated voice and displayed on screen. For xQc, this mostly consists of people trying to troll him, and spam either “seven” or some other nonsense.

“Yo hey, I think there’s a problem man, this is not supposed to happen like that, man,” he cried as the endless voices continued. 

“Dude, listen, man, this is not gonna work, dude,” xQc laughed before staring at his screen, waiting in vain for the voices to stop.

Besides Overwatch, xQc has also been playing a bit of Call of Duty’s new Blackout mode and reacting to it pretty much how you would expect.

There’s no word yet on whether or not xQc has fixed his donation system, or if he’s just chosen to live with the endless computer voices forever.

A small Twitch streamer became emotional after YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg donated to him. The personality thanked the star for bringing attention to his channel.

For many viewers around the world, PewDiePie has been the face of online entertainment over the last decade. The 30-year-old boasts 107 million YouTube subscribers in 2020.

In September, the content creator went viral when he gave a small Twitch streamer his very first donation ever. And on October 15, the personality became emotional when the Swede donated to him for the second time.

Small streamer emotional after PewDiePie donates

On September 24, Twitch streamer BluWolfie123 was playing the wildly popular title Among Us when he received a donation from PewDiePie. Stunned and not sure if it was really the YouTuber, the personality exclaimed “That’s f**king insane. What the hell! It’s my first donation!”

On October 15, the entertainer decided to donate to the streamer a second time. “This is the same [streamer] from last time. Hey, he grew in viewers, good for him!” Pewds said, as he donated another $100. Shocked, BluWolfie exclaimed, “What the f**k?!”

The Twitch streamer then asked if PewDiePie was watching him live, before thanking him: “Holy s**t, thank you! I wanted to say thank you. I commented on your last video, but it got buried. Yo, if you’re there, I wanted to say thank you before. I wanted to thank you directly. If you’re here, thank you! You’re f**king awesome! I can not thank you enough.”

(Topic starts at 5:00.)

Kjellberg thanked Wolfie for his kind words and then told viewers to check out the user’s Twitch channel. “Check out BluWolfie, he’s so wholesome,” he said. The streamer further commented on the situation on his About page. “I got super lucky thanks to the Pewds and his community and I’m super happy.”

Pewds also gave away money to several other small channels on the Amazon-owned streaming platform – a few of whom cried over the popular YouTuber popping in to watch their broadcast.

This isn’t the first time PewDiePie has donated money. For months, he has been donating all of his streaming subscriber money to various charities. In October, he sent a mental health charity $144k.
