Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel explained to viewers why he doesn’t want a driver’s license right now, despite all the jokes from chat about it.

xQc’s lack of a driver’s license is no secret, but it’s never really been a major issue with things like Uber, and the fact xQc spends the majority of his time streaming at home.

Still, it’s something fans haven’t let the Canadian live down, with jokes about him not having a license popping up on stream.

Now, the former Overwatch pro has explained he doesn’t even want to be able to drive, despite all the jokes at his expense.

No driver’s license? No problem for Felix

During a CS:GO match, xQc told fans he wasn’t concerned about getting a license, even if people used it to rip on him.

“You guys always roast me for not having a license, I don’t want one, I genuinely don’t want one,” Felix told chat. “I’m irresponsible, OK? I can’t even cook sh*t without making a fire.”

“So why would I want to endanger myself and others by being in a car on the street?” the streamer continued. “It is so dumb.”

After explaining his lack of a driver’s license, xQc went back to yelling at his CSGO teammates who had dared to interrupt him.

Felix could get his license one day but for now, he seems content to not be driving around – which might honestly be a good idea if what he says is anything to go by.

Despite not being able to drive, legally, xQc tuned into the Tesla Cybertruck reveal at the request of chat, and buckled in for the ride.

 “What the fu*k,” he said, before bursting out into laughter when the vehicle was revealed. “What the fu*k is that? It looks futuristic, at least.”

The new Tesla truck won’t release until 2022, which is plenty of time for Felix to get his license, if he decides to change his mind.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
