Twitch streamer and former Overwatch League pro Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel said The London Spitfire and their star player Joon-yeong ‘Profit’ Park take shortcuts.
After losing a tough match on Route 66 with the Spitfire’s Profit on the enemy team, a tilted xQc called out the Reaper player for his hero-selection.
As soon as the match ended and before Lengyel was back to the menu ready to queue again, he unleashed some shade on the championship-winning Spitfire squad and Profit.
“Of course you went Reaper, dude,” the Canadian tank main said in regards to the playoff MVP. “I would have went Reaper too… if I was some pussy soy boy.”
“People who go Reaper, okay… when they are faced with a problem, instead of dealing with the correct solution and being good at the solution and grinding a solution, you know what they do? They take shortcuts,” the French Canadian added, transitioning to criticism of the Spitfire organization and Cloud9 as a whole.
“So yea, guys, go ahead. Celebrate the Spitfire’s victory and their new skin, their amazing new skin. Celebrate and buy their skin while you can because they’ll never get a skin ever again. Why? Because the players like Profit on their team, they take shortcuts when things get hard. They don’t grind out the correct solution. They are soy boy cuck lords.”
xQc was referring to the new “Flying Ace Winston” skin to celebrate the Spitfire’s championship victory last season.
“...that’s why you’ll never have to buy a skin from their trash ass team ever again,” the popular Twitch star went on to add.
The European-based squad managed to win the Overwatch League championship in 2018 after defeating the Philadelphia Fusion in the Grand Finals.
The Cloud9-owned team was created by merging two all-Korean rosters: GC Busan and Cloud9 KONGDOO. Something xQc took an issue with.
“Not even the players, but you know who took a real shortcut? Their team owner. Instead of crafting a team, they just bought two teams out. And how is that paying off now, dude? Bought two rosters that were good in one meta? That’s a tough one.”
This latest xQc fiasco came on the day he revealed that he was a ‘brand risk’ for Twitch. It will be interesting to see if this lands him in hot water with the platform or Blizzard Entertainment.
The 23-year-old is set to represent Team Canada as their main tank at the Overwatch World Cup at Blizzcon in November.
