TSM Myth's perfect xQc impressions get even better with hilarious Overwatch 'rage'

Team SoloMid’s Ali ‘Fortnite on Twitch, Myth can regularly be found to have thousands of viewers at any one time.

Unlike some other Fortnite streamers, however, he doesn’t solely stick to the battle royale game. In recent weeks, he has branched out, picking up games like Overwatch along the way – and there is no better way to play the popular Blizzard title than trying to be like former professional Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel. 

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentxQc is no longer an Overwatch professional but he’s still one of the most popular names in the game.

During his July 4 stream, Kabbani had been dabbling in some Overwatch when he asked his viewers if they wanted to hear his stunning xQc impression once again. Of course, it was such a good impression the first time around that his chat couldn’t refuse.

As he got himself into the xQc zone, the Fortnite star attempted to talk to one of his teammates but ran into some difficulties as they didn’t want to talk back – limiting his chances to find success in-game.

Yet, that only provided a launching pad for him to take his impression to the next level. With his teammates ignoring him, Myth jumped right into a hilariously stuttered-filled rant about not getting any help.

However, it wouldn’t be a perfect xQc impression without some sort of slam. The TSM star duly obliged by hitting his desk after his ‘rage’ had reached his climax. “Chat, look at this fucking idiot right now dude, I cannot believe it right now,” he added, after ‘slamming’ down on his set-up.

Myth may want to work on that, though, as it wasn’t quite as good as xQc slamming his desk with his feet or his bizarre rant about a teammates mother.

It remains to be seen if the streamer can pull off any more impressions of his fellow streamers moving forward, but he’s got an ace up his sleeve with xQc.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
