Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has laid out the problems with watching competitive Fortnite Battle Royale matches - especially when there is a centralized broadcast in place.

Lengyel has risen up the ranks of Twitch due to his hilarious outbursts of rage and unfiltered opinions on anything his viewers put to him.

He hasn’t been afraid to take aim at Fortnite Battle Royale in the past - raging at playing the game itself. However, in a series of now-deleted tweets from June 1, he opted to take aim at the esports side of the game, in particular, the viewing experience.

xQc made his name with Overwatch before streaming different games on Twitch.

The former Overwatch League player tried to make the point that games of competitive Fortnite Battle Royale are unwatchable when on a single broadcast. He tweeted: “Fortnite when spectated by somebody else than the player is UNWATCHABLE. This will never change. It’s impossible to keep up with all the developments in the game, so you end up with nothing.”

However, he wasn’t finished there - pointing out that it’s much easier to focus on one player and their journey through the match. “When you watch a streamer, where he lands, the items he gets matters,” continued xQc. “You can see the hand he’s being dealt and how he plays it and even how the pro reacts while doing so.

The popular streamer added: “A centralized broadcast cannot do this well enough in a 100 man lobby, it’s not possible.”

However, instead of taking on any naysayers before heading to sleep, xQc opted to delete his mini thread after thinking that nobody would care about what he had just typed out.

Qualifying for the Fortnite World Cup is still underway, as players have two more weeks to secure their place in either the solos or duos portion of the tournament.

The live finals kick off on July 26 from New York City, but considering the time and effort that Epic has put into their own broadcast, it’s unlikely that they take xQc’s advice on board.

It remains to be seen if the qualified players are allowed to stream their own point of view from the tournament as they could as the ESL Katowice Royale event in January.
