Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is renowned for his incredible Overwatch talent, but the streamer has shown that he can win Counter-Strike: Global Offensive matches while not even playing the game.

The Canadian, who played Overwatch professionally for Dallas Fuel, became a well-known personality on Twitch thanks to his Overwatch streams where he would become incredibly frustrated at the game and its players.

Following a ban from the game in November 2018, Lengyel moved into streaming a wider variety of games, including Pokémon: Let’s Go! and legendary first-person-shooter CS:GO.

ValvexQc has been streaming other popular games like CS:GO.

While streaming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Thursday, January 24, the Canadian showed off his incredible skill with a little help from his teammates.

With his team 11-0 up and cruising to victory, xQc decided it would be a good time to start watching YouTube videos, tabbing away from CS:GO to visit the site.

With Lengyel unaware that two enemy players were closing in on him, xQc’s teammate quickly told the streamer to tab back into Counter-Strike. The streamer duly obliged, picking up an M1A1-s rifle that had been lying on the floor and wiping out the two players – immediately returning to the video he was watching.

Lengyel has become one of the most popular streamers on Twitch thanks not only to his skill at games, but because of the hilarious moments that take place during his broadcast.

While the was Canadian singing on his Thursday stream, xQc’s mom entered the room to bring him some food, but hilariously informed him that she wasn’t a fan of his vocals.

Janko ‘YNk’ Paunović has stepped down as the head coach of FaZe Clan’s CSGO team following the transfer of Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač to G2 Esports.

YNk cited issues within the team and wanted to step aside as FaZe will be looking to build up their lineup again, which still features highly-talented players even with the exit of their Bosnian star.

“For a while now the team has been struggling with some recurring issues in and out of the game which I’ve done my best to try and amend but unfortunately without much success,” YNk said. “I feel that the best way to move forward is for the team and myself to part ways and, with NiKo going to G2, give the players and the organization the opportunity to get a new coach and IGL who can work on taking the team forward.”

The former MiBR and FaZe coach also indicated that he’s going to break from coaching CSGO for the rest of 2020, and left the next year open-ended.

YNk has stepped down from FaZe after joining in early 2019.

A player and broadcaster before his coaching career, YNk leaves the org in the same month his team beat OG Esports 3-0 in the EU Intel Extreme Masters New York Online grand finals. Last week, they placed 9th at the DreamHack Open Fall 2020.

YNk has been with the team since the beginning of 2019. While they managed to put good results together at various BLAST events and some online tourneys in 2020, FaZe struggled to put up consistent performances against top teams.

YNk is stepping aside in a pivotal moment for FaZe Clan’s roster. Longtime face of the org’s CSGO team, Niko, has moved on from FaZe, and the coach will stand down to let them make something out of the stars still on roster like Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David, Håvard ‘rain’ Nygaard, Markus ‘Kjaerbye’ Kjærbye, and rising talent Helvijs ‘broky’ Saukants.

YNk and NiKo both parted ways with FaZe Clan.

As more CSGO events and competitors continue to either migrate or revolve around EU, YNk could still have prospects in the competitive or broadcasting sides of the scene.

Once a team with superstar players in every role, FaZe is now on the market to fill up their roster to standard capacity, as the latest shakeups leave them without a fifth member and a head coach to take the reigns.
