Contenders player Kim ‘DELETEBRIG’ Han-Byeol got some attention recently for his username in the tournament, and now Adrian ‘xQcOnABudget’ Torrealba is turning heads with his unique handle.

Contenders Season 3 recently started, and brought along some controversial changes that some say makes life tougher for players.

Despite these changes, however, it looks like players are continuing to have a good time with picking some unique usernames, with the latest focusing on popular streamer xQc. 

From Venezuela, xQcOnABudget previously played on Brazilian team Based Tryhards before joining his current squad, Quad Gaming based in Argentina.

His name is the second discovered in as many days that makes a hilarious statement, following in the footsteps of the infamous DELETEBRIG. 


In a post about the name on the Competitive Overwatch subreddit, users said the unique names have been some of the most exciting things to happen in Contenders because of the prevalence of GOATS.

One user had even played with xQcOnABudget and said the young Venezuelan player was someone to keep an eye on.


For his part, xQcOnABudget just seems to be a big fan of xQc, which is very appropriate considering his choice of playing with Winston, xQc’s favorite hero in the game.


With the second head-turning name in Contenders this week alone, it’s becoming apparent Blizzard might not have screened them beforehand.
