Hugely popular YouTuber Mr Beast, known for his grand-scale videos, has apparently achieved a 100 player game of Among Us, something previously thought impossible in the base game.

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is known for taking everything to the next level, and that ability has scored him a whopping 45 million subscribers on his main channel, with over 7.4 billion views on his videos collectively.

MrBeast has given away crazy prizes on his gaming channel, like a $10,000 Taco Bell gift card in a Minecraft challenge.

Naturally, Jimmy has jumped on the latest craze to sweep the internet; Among Us. Among Us was released in 2018, but found a new lease of life years later when it rose through the ranks on Twitch.

Currently, the lobby can hold no greater than ten people. However many have considered how amazing it would be to have more players in a single game, and one animation made by the Pixel Kingdom depicting what it would be like to have 100 players in the game has garnered an insane 85,000,000 views on YouTube, so clearly the feature is in high demand.

If there’s anyone to make it happen in reality, it’s Mr Beast. He teased a 100 player lobby on Twitter, announcing the upcoming video on Friday, October 16, though was met with slight scepticism.

It seems that despite many doubts, Mr Beast actually managed to achieve the seemingly impossible feat, as the final video showed a fully operational 100 player lobby of Among Us. There are some minor differences to the original game, but the resemblance is absolutely uncanny.

This video saw various members of Mr Beast’s team attempting to kill all of the 100 players in the lobby, without the other players figuring out which usernames they were going by, thereby establishing them as the imposter.

While it’s not totally clear how exactly he managed the feat, many have speculated that Mr Beast and his team have built their own version of Among Us from scratch, which allows a lobby with many more players than is possible in the actual game, judging by the minor differences.

At the end of the video, Jimmy asked fans to “comment what you want us to do next in Among Us” as “we can do anything,” teasing even crazier content relating to the hugely popular game further down the line.

Twitch powerhouse Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has taken a swipe at some of the more impassioned Taylor Swift fans who rally around her and “attack” anyone she is beefing with on social media.

xQc isn’t one to hold back his opinions. In the last couple of months alone, he’s opened up the drama between him and Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar, debated with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and his wife over charity streams, and accused Twitch streamer Katerino of cheating on CallMeCarson.

Now, he’s got pop sensation Taylor Swift in his sights. Well, her fans, at least.

xQc throws Taylor Swift fans some shade

xQc claims he has nothing but respect and admiration for Taylor Swift herself. However, he has thrown some shade at her fans. More specifically, he believes the portion of her fans who draw comparisons between her and others and attack them on social media are a nuisance.

xQc stated that he believes Taylor Swift “kinda had to go with the industry and whatnot” once she became a superstar, and that he understands and respects it. “But the problem is… her fans and her fan base,” he added.

He goes on to describe a hypothetical situation in which Kanye West says, “I just sold… 600 million dollars worth of products… just to let you guys know.”

xQc then re-enacts Taylor Swift fans spamming Kanye with “Taylor ended your career” comments. To reiterate his point, he acts out another situation in which the fans say “Taylor Swift ended your career overnight.”

Taylor Swift has over 140 million followers on Instagram, so xQc is definitely punching up by taking on her fanbase.

xQc is referring to a feud between Kim, Kanye, and Taylor Swift

A word for word summary doesn’t do it justice. xQc’s impressions are hilarious and questionable, to say the least. But it’s something that has happened on social media before, and he felt strongly enough about it to make a comment.

Taylor Swift feuded with both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West earlier this year, and although it seems like the trio has more or less made amends, some of her fans weren’t ready to forgive and forget.

Either way, it doesn’t matter too much whether you agree with xQc or not. After all, it’s nothing more than his opinion on something trivial. But the main thing is his awful impersonations are well worth the watch and provide good entertainment value.
