Twitch star xQc decided to try his hand at some meditation while he was waiting for an Overwatch match to start, and lost his mind when a rude teammate pulled him out of his zen.
We all know the struggle of queuing up for an Overwatch game and having to stand by for what seems like forever for a match to be found, with some Competitive rounds taking up to an hour to load in.
xQc wanted to be productive during his wait, and decided to follow a YouTube meditation video to calm the senses and have a good stretch – something that was interrupted by another player.
xQc’s meditation interrupted
On February 1, the 23-year-old indulged in some yoga between matches, and pulled up a video guide in which he tried to follow along in real life.
After one specific game where his team won 3-2, he yelled out “Chat! Two more! ARGHHHH!” while pounding his chest, before he tried to loosen up and prepare for the next one by sitting on the floor and imitating the instructor.
The Overwatch pro dived right into the zone, and seemed genuinely relaxed and calm while he performed various poses such as crossing his legs, bending over forwards, and stretching his arms out.
A match loaded in quicker than expected, and just as the Canadian reached forward and grabbed his toes in unison with the instructor, a random teammate joined the voice channel and screamed, “WHAT’S UP MOTHERF**KERS?!”
As quick as lightning, he scrambled to his feet, rushed back over to his PC, and paused the soothing voice of the yoga video while his Twitch chat went wild. “Motherf**ker, are you kidding, dude?” he asked. “Huh?” the player replied, before the pro hit back with “Do you know how rude that was, what you just did?”
After the stranger responded with “yeah,” xQc explained that he wasn’t happy he was rudely interrupted. “Dude, I was just in the middle of a paid meditation session with Jessica!”
One lesson to be learned from this is that you should never disrupt the Twitch streamer while his mind’s in the zone and he’s trying to let loose, as he won’t be happy at all.
xQc is one of the top personalities on the platform with over two million followers at this time of writing, and constantly entertains his audience with his variety broadcasts – even with yoga.
