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.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
