Recently, xQc expressed his displeasure with the current state of Overwatch. But perhaps CS:GO is not the way to go for the Twitch star.
xQc is certainly not a stranger to CS:GO, and is more than capable of holding his own when he gets matched up with proper teammates. To close out his August 24 stream, he queued for a match on Inferno in the Gold Nova group, and dropped 23 kills while also picking up the most MVP stars on his team. Check out this clutch triple in apartments with the AWP:
But on his August 25 stream, that same magic wasn’t there on Mirage. xQc and his teammates were down 7-1 to start the map on their CT side, and in the ninth round got off to a good start with two early kills. But then this happened:
So, there are a couple of things to unpack here. First, we have xQc jumping off of the palace balcony to the A site ramp entrance. He clearly tries to switch from knife to shotgun, but accidentally switches back to his knife. With no ranged weapon available, he gets blasted by the AK-47 wielding player in front of him.
That same player then kills his teammate who’s at triple box, and then xQc loses another teammate at mid, as a 5v3 turned into a 3v2 in just seconds.
To make matters worse, his teammate with the Team Liquid player icon goes to smoke the molotov at his feet on B short, but he ends up dying to the flames.
In the split second before switching cameras, it looks like the fire is still going despite the sound of it being extinguished, so this death might be attributed to a molotov bug rather than impatience or stupidity.
But there’s no excuse for what happens next, as his last surviving teammate patiently waits in the smoke next to ticket booth for the terrorist player to flash in, and then proceeds to miss roughly 12-13 shots with the M4A4 from behind.
His should-be-kill then whips around with his AK and headshots the poor lad, and even xQc can’t stifle a laugh.
Maybe Valve should add a Bronze rank to matchmaking.
