Overwatch League pro Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has slammed Blizzard for the way they handle content in the league – claiming fans barely care about the stuff they put out currently.

xQc created tips and tricks content about the game on YouTube before becoming a pro player with the Dallas Fuel – however, he was released by the Fuel and left the Overwatch League after picking up two suspensions for his comments towards other players and casters. 

He is, however, extremely critical of the way Blizzard handles content from teams and players within the league – with xQc believing that the need for approval from the very top and sporadic posts doesn’t help.

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentThe former Overwatch Pro is now a highly entertaining streamer on Twitch.

While playing Apex Legends alongside current Atlanta Reign player Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca, xQc asked if Dafran was in California before telling him that he’d visit him at his new team house in the near future. 

“Dude, I can do a IRL stream at the house,” xQc said, before Dafran quickly told him “No, no, we have to do a house tour first.” However, the former pro wanted that video to be produced soon. “Oh dude, then fucking post it, you fucking bitch,” he told Dafran. 

However, he wasn’t finished there. xQc then began a lengthy rant by again asking the current pro “Dafran, how hard can it be to film the house for ten minutes and post it? It can’t be that hard. No, the problem is that Blizzard wants to control everything and they want every single file that ever comes across their desk to review everything.”

He continued his rant, turning his aim further towards Blizzard: “If you make content, you have to send it to your boss, then send it to your org, they send it to the top and then they send it to Blizzard and they approve it and then you can post it. It takes sixty fucking million years to post anything at all dude. It’s so trash.”

He finished his passionate rant by stating: “People barely want to consume the content that Orgs put out because they’re so new yet they take so long to do it and they do it so sporadically – honestly, it’s dogshit but whatever, I’m going to stop ranting. Shit drives me up the wall dude.”

The highly-anticipated second season of the Overwatch League kicks off on February 14 but it’s unlikely that xQc will be tuning in for any pre-game videos.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
