Twitch streamer xQc lost his temper while playing World of Warcraft, but not because of anything to do with the gameplay, rather simply because he was unable to skip the cutscenes.

Formerly a professional Overwatch player, famously for the Dallas Fuel in the Overwatch League, xQc is best known for his live streams – notorious for rage filled moments.

Over the years he has smashed plenty keyboards and headsets, mostly while playing Overwatch, but really any game can set him off.

Not known for World of Warcraft however, he was trying the game out on stream to check out the hype surrounding the recently released Battle for Azeroth expansion (and while he is banned from Overwatch).

While World of Warcraft is a gameplay intensive experience, it is also very narrative driven, especially with the new expansion pack bringing in some fresh storylines.

So much so, that there are a number of short (and some lengthy) cutscenes which the player cannot skip.

Unskippable cutscenes are the kind of annoyance that most gamers will simply tut at and endure for thirty seconds, but xQc is not most gamers.

Smashing his fists on his helpless desk, he rages: “Skip. SKIP! Holy shit, these fucking forced cinematics man, what the fuck is wrong with this fucking game.”

It explains why his Twitch subscriber notification is a GIF image of him standing up and smashing his keyboard in rage. At least he is consistently angry with just about any game he plays.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

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.
