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.
