Popular Overwatch ruined by a blatant cheater.

The former Overwatch League professional has become one of the biggest channels on Twitch since making the full-time switch from playing to streaming.

Thousands of viewers, be they subscribers or non-subs, tune in on a daily basis to watch xQc either display those top-level skills in Overwatch or rage at anything else that comes his way. Yet, more often than not, the two things interact and the streamer is left raging at Overwatch and its players.

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentxQc has played Overwatch at all levels and even turned out for Team Canada at the World Cup.

During his June 29 stream, xQc had been playing games of Overwatch when suspicions were raised about one enemy player during his match on Junkertown. The player, playing under the name ‘Man’, seemed to have remarkably good aim with Tracer – leaving xQc to hunt down clips of them in action.

Watching through the replay of the game, the streamer worked with his viewers to try and figure out if the player had been cheating or not. “Dude! Ok dude. Stop,” xQc roared, waving his hands in dismay after watching the player eliminate him earlier in the match. 

Of course, cheating allegations against another player aren’t something to be taken lightly and more than just one clip is needed as evidence.  

With that in mind, the former Overwatch League pro watched on further before coming to a conclusion. He added: “How is this guy allowed to cheat the entire week? He’s been doing it all week, literally. If this isn’t enough proof I don’t know what will ever be.”

However, while he was frustrated by the cheater, xQc didn’t do anything more about it as he left the game and chose not to report the player.

The former Dallas Fuel star may not have to wait all that long for the cheater to get their comeuppance, however, as Blizzard has seemingly begun testing a new anti-cheating system in the PTR

It just remains to be seen if the developers can weed out cheaters on a regular basis or if there will be exploits that can get around the new system.

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: Pokimane
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.
