Twitch variety stream star Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has signed with Luminosity Gaming ahead of the org’s Rising Stars challenge, in which the former Overwatch pro will join the event’s panel of influencer judges.

LG already has an army of content creators in its payroll including the likes of LosPollos, Anomaly, ShivFPS, LEGENDALEY, and more. But the team is now going to add one of the biggest streamers on Twitch to bolster its lineup.

The last team xQc took part of was the Gladiators’ academy team as a substitute tank before the org disbanded the project after two years in the Overwatch Contenders league. Before that, he had a troubled spell on the Dallas Fuel in 2018 before he took a step back from professional play.

But now the 24-year-old Canadian will take part in the LG legacy as a content creator, and will even help usher in the next streaming star for his brand new org.

One of xQc’s first tasks under his new banner will be to help LG sift through 40 contestants in the Rising Stars challenge that welcomes anyone to apply for a chance to win.

Streamers made up of the new signee, Muselk, Fresh, RockyNoHands, and a lot more, will decide who gets the $100,000 sponsorship from LG – that is, if they can impress the judges in their live auditions over Twitch.

As one of the most lively entertainers on the platform, xQc will be able to pull from a wealth of knowledge on what makes Twitch Chat tic.

But now that he’s fully one the squad, people will be able to look forward to more antics from the boisterous streamer, only this time it’ll be sponsored by one of the most recognized orgs in streaming.

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.
