xQc says he's switching to Fortnite after losing out at the 2018 Esports Awards

by Bill Cooney



After he found out he didn't place in the top three for the 'Streamer of the Year' category, Overwatch streamer Felix 'xQc' Lengyel said he would just have to start playing Fortnite.


While playing a round on Oasis, xQc finds out he wasn't one of the finalists for the award, "Not even top three, who got top three? What the fuck?"

M0xyy, his streaming partner, informed him that besides Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins, who won the award, Tyler 'Tyler1' Steinkamp got second place and Dr DisRespect came in third.


"Alright, fuck it," xQc told viewers. "I'm gonna play Fortnite, marry Adept, and then..." the streamer proclaims before trailing off.

"And color your hair blue," m0xyy chimes in towards the end of the clip, although it's doubtful xQc would get rid of his "trademark" hairstyle.


xQc ventures out from time to time and plays games other than Overwatch, but switching to being a full-time Fortnite streamer would be a big step, even for him.

Besides winning Streamer of the year, Ninja also took home the award for Esports Personality of the Year.

Maybe next year, Felix.
