Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has become yet another developer’s punching bag midway through a horror game stream, after the streamer was trolled with a Dr Disrespect prank that left him more than a bit confused.

Whether it’s an online competitive game, a single-player title he’s playing on stream, or even just a watch-along, xQc has encountered his fair share of trolls and pranks.

While it’s almost become a given for the streamer’s adventures through the internet to find one, sometimes he gets hijacked at the most unsuspecting times.

xQc’s experience in Welcome to the Game II was made creepier by the developers hijacking his stream.

xQc was playing through acclaimed horror title Welcome to the Game II, trying to save Amalea by hacking into various computers in the game.

As he was running through the dimly-lit hallways and stairwells of the game, an ominous song started playing in the background. It was asking xQc to “get the best a man could get.”

Lengyel quickly realized it was Dr Disrespect’s famous Gillette song. While the French-Canadian was amused, he just couldn’t figure out where it was coming from.

“What’s happening,” the streamer asked. “Where is that playing from? Guys, where is that playing from? Wait, is this game even online?”

With the help of his Twitch chat, xQc managed to figure out where the song started playing from ⁠— the in-game computer. After legging it back upstairs, he managed to silence the YouTube video playing the multi-Platinum hit.

“That’s funny dude,” xQc said, seemingly pretty impressed. “How [did he do it]? That’s crazy. That is nuts. It was actually Adam [the developer].”

It wasn’t the only song the developers of the horror game managed to trick the Twitch streamer with. Adam also managed to boot up Astronomia, commonly known as the Coffin Dance song, to prank him. He also got his chat involved, deciding the streamer’s fate for him.

It was foreshadowing for xQc’s run in the game. Half an hour later, he was hit with the dreaded “Game Over” screen after he was jump-scared in an alleyway.

He couldn’t blame that one on developer sabotage, although it might have helped if he wasn’t forced to run around headless chasing voices.

Smash Melee star Ludwig Ahgren sent a Pokemon card Twitch stream into a meltdown when he pulled a 1st Edition Dragonite worth up to $10k. The gaming pro scored the rare collectible after streamer Trainwreckstv gave him the pack.

Pokemon cards have taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to see their favorite personalities chase after the rarest Nintendo collectibles.

A live Trading Card Game box opening hosted by streamer Mizkif and his org One True King went off the rails on November 22 when Smash pro Ludwig scored a rare Dragonite that could have been Trainwrecks’.

Ludwig scores rare Pokemon card from 1999

The Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded for nothing on school playgrounds decades ago can now sell for as much as a house. The hobby has also become a major hit on sites like Twitch, with streamers buying sealed booster boxes from the 90s to open live for viewers.

On November 22, Twitch star Mizkif broke open 1st Edition sealed packs from the 1999 Fossil set. Those attending the event lost their minds when pro gamer Ludwig scored a 1st Edition Dragonite after streamer Trainwreckstv gave his pack to him.

The moment went viral due to the Twitch personality’s generosity backfiring. “Dude I swear to God if I said no to this pack to be fair and nice and its a good pack I want it back. Ludgwig, if this is good it’s my pack. If it’s bad, it’s your pack,” he exclaimed moments before the card was pulled. Unfortunately, the booster he passed on contained the exact rare holographic he was chasing after.

After the excitement settled, the group felt bad for Train’s incredibly bad luck. Although the popular Twitch star wasn’t too bitter about it, laughing it off on Twitter. If nothing else, he should be applauded for his generosity.

According to recent sales of the item, a 1st Edition Dragonite can sell anywhere from $8k to 9.7k depending on the grading. Luckily for Ludwig, the item looked incredibly pristine, giving him a good chance at a PSA 10 grading.
