Popular Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel lost it after achieving an incredible Minecraft speedrun time. The former Overwatch pro hilariously called out fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors, and challenged him to beat his record.

For many, xQc has become the face of Twitch over the last two years. The former Overwatch pro is one of the most followed channels on the platform, and consistently pulls in 30-40k viewers each time he goes live.

During his October 13 broadcast, the Canadian exploded in excitement after setting a new personal record when beating Minecraft. Celebrating, the 24-year-old called out Forsen and dared him to pass his speedrun time.

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games on Twitch. In 2020, streamers like xQc have been trying to beat the game in record time in front of viewers.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.

With Steve from Minecraft finally revealed as the seventh DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, many game companies have been asked if they want a character appearing in Nintendo’s flagship fighter. Now, Microsoft has responded to whether or not Master Chief from Halo will appear in the game.

On October 1, the official Xbox accounts retweeted the Nintendo announcement that Steve was joining the cast of Smash Ultimate. This makes sense after all, as Microsoft has owned Minecraft’s developer Mojang since 2014.

However, the French Xbox account took things a bit further and remarked how Steve and Alex had received an invitation – a common motif in Smash Ultimate fighter announcements.

In the comments, a user appeared to joking ask when Master Chief will be added to Super Smash Bros, leading the French account to reply: “He’s still waiting for his invitation.”

What does Microsoft’s comments on Smash mean?

This is incredibly interesting because it seems to suggest that Microsoft is open to the idea of Master Chief joining Smash Ultimate as a playable fighter.

Amusingly, Microsoft does have several fighters in Smash already, albeit retroactively as the Vault Boy Mii Fighter outfit was added before the company purchased Bethesda.

Of course, Microsoft allowed Banjo to be in Smash and now Steve, so the chances of Master Chief being added seem like more of a possibility than ever.

Master Chief could be the biggest Smash reveal ever.

On the flip side, it’s also possible that by “still waiting for his invitation”, the account is suggesting that Nintendo and Microsoft haven’t been in talks about the Spartan joining the game.

The last possibility is that this is just the French Xbox account having some fun, but given how big the idea of Master Chief appearing in Smash is, this is hardly something that should be joked about.

There are still four more characters coming in Fighters Pass Volume 2. Will Master Chief be included? Only time will tell.
