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.
xQc to judge LG’s Rising Stars
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.
THE MOMENT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! Please Welcome @XQC to Team @Luminosity! Today we launch #RISINGSTARS where we will find the best undiscovered streamer and challenge them live on @Twitch to win a $100K Sponsorship with our judges and your votes! https://t.co/QGaeNcbt9j pic.twitter.com/1GD97ArVxN

Whoever is crowned as the next LG Rising Star will get a one-year contract to join xQc and the rest of the content creators on the org’s roster.
Before officially announcing the addition, signs of xQc joining LG was widely reported after The Hollywood Reporter passively mentioned him as a part of the team’s content team.
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.
