Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has made his triumphant return to Overwatch by calling out the game for potentially sabotaging him. 

The popular streamer produced yet another of his infamous outbursts after an “inconceivably stupid” cart bug in the team-based shooter, which ultimately cost him the match.

At first, xQc was utterly lost for words and just stared back at the screen for a few moments, seemingly trying to understand what had just happened to him. 

As he jumped on top of the cart to contest it, it should have stopped, but it continued to move and the other team was handed the win in strange circumstances.

With teammates laughing in the background and the chat in hysterics, the dumbfounded former professional player completely lost his cool. 

“Can somebody explain what the fuck just happened? What is this piece of shit, trash game?” the Canadian said. “I was on the cart for three seconds and we lost the game. Is this a joke? I actually feel like I’m being trolled, this glitch is so bad.” 

To go the extra mile, xQc then accused Overwatch of tampering with his sessions to make him lose, just days after ending his hiatus from the game.

“I actually think somebody is out there manipulating the game and actually trolling me. This is inconceivably stupid!” he shouted. 

Despite the streamer saying that he was “done” with the Overwatch community back in November of last year and hinted that he may never play the game again, he decided to make his return to the game on January 10.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
