Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘Overwatch’s newest hero Sigma.

xQc made his name on Twitch by playing Overwatch, but has had a complicated relationship with the game over the last few years.

He was one of the biggest names in the Overwatch League’s Inaugural Season until he and the Dallas Fuel parted ways early in the season (though he has made somewhat of a return).

Since then he’s continued streaming, but likes to switch it up between different games, rather than grinding out Overwatch matches all day.

Blizzard EntertainmentxQc is also a fan favorite in the Overwatch World Cup.

Why was xQc disappointed with Blizzard?

Before a new hero is released, Blizzard will often let prominent members of the Overwatch community know beforehand, with an obvious embargo on sharing anything too early.

As one of the most popular Overwatch streamers on Twitch, xQc seems like a natural candidate to get in on the action, but it seems like he got left out in the cold for the release of Sigma and only found out along with everyone else.

Nesskain/Blizzard EntertainmentxQc found out about Sigma with the rest of us.

“I don’t care that much how I can gain from a character coming out, right?” xQc asked his chat. “What am I going to gain out of it? Dude, 2,000 followers? There are a billion ways I can grow the stream that I can do good shit.”

“But there are not a lot of good ways that we can create excitement for the fucking game and when it’s dying, we can use every bit of help to make it come back from the hole that was dug in for it,” xQc passionately explained. “And I can help with that, and I don’t know why I’m on the fucking sidelines all the time dude.”

“I’m not jealous, I’m disappointed in the lost potential,” he told chat. “It makes me upset dude.”

What does xQc think of Sigma?

After sharing his disappointment with chat, xQc joined the rest of us on the PTR to try the newest Overwatch hero out on stream.

xQc confirmed that Sigma is a high skill ceiling hero and his abilities can be tough to get down, just like finally get to try Sigma out on the PTR starting today.

And who knows? Maybe by the time Hero 32 rolls around, it will be Felix broadcasting live from Blizzard HQ along with Jeff.


James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
