Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel slammed his chat after he was mocked for his initial rank in League of Legends

The Canadian streamer quickly became one of the biggest broadcasters on Twitch after his retirement from competitive Overwatch in late 2018.

Since then he has played a variety of games and entertained his viewers with his feisty attitude, and he’s never afraid to fire back at anyone who tries to get under his skin. It was no different when his chat tried to mock him for his League of Legends rank after having played the game for just a few days on stream.

The Canadian streamer is one of the top subscribed channels on Twitch.

xQc was finishing up his stream on Feb 11 with some League of Legends, when he decided to send a message to everyone mocking him for being ranked in silver, one of the lowest ranks in the game.

“All the people in chat who are in bronze, silver, and copper dude, just know that it doesn’t get better, you’ll never get out of there, and you’re complete garbage” he began with a fierce roast, before continuing to tear into them.

“When I climb to masters and come back there, on my throne and look down on you, just remember when you tried to pick on me for being in silver temporarily. Know that you’ll never, ever, be good at the game, and you’ll never even be close to my skillset. But thanks for trying anyway.”

Of course, it didn’t end there and Felix just had to throw out a few more insults before closing down his stream. “Goodbye, you f**king pu**y, your mum is disgusting, she’s a fat disgusting f**king cow and I f**cked her in the a** – f**k you.”

This may have been a bit further than xQc usually goes when addressing his viewers, although, many understand that it’s just a part of his stream and the comments were met mostly with laughter and goodbyes.

League of Legends is currently in its 10th competitive season, with players undergoing placement matches to find where their skillset ranks against others in the game. While Silver isn’t a particularly high rank, the good news is that he isn’t at the absolute bottom of the ladder, and with some time and effort, he may be able to grind his way up to Masters, just as he claims he will.

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.
