Streamer Felix ‘Overwatch stream to a whole new level of strange in the same night.

Felix celebrated the moment he reached one million followers by watching his follower count roll over a million in real-time, telling fans “You’re going to lose everything if you unfollow, the button is locked.”

One million followers on Twitch is no small feat, but xQc has been gaining popularity on the streaming site even after getting suspended from his bread and butter game Overwatch.

After reaching the milestone, xQc decided to flip his Overwatch screen around to show a mirror view on stream.

This switched everything around for viewers, including the map, and put the streamer upside down as well.

If you didn’t know xQc was celebrating a million followers, one might see the clip and think he’s finally gone off the deep end.

Eventually, xQc messed around with his webcam to show a ridiculous view of the game on his monitor.

It was so “scuffed” that xQc has to ask viewers if they could see what was going on, and if you look at it just right, somehow you can see what’s actually happening.

Hopefully, for viewers sake, these effects won’t become a regular part of xQc’s streams, but it was a very xQc way to celebrate.

T1 has officially locked in its competitive Valorant roster, signing former Overwatch League talent and South Korean aiming prodigy, Jung-woo ‘Sayaplayer’ Ha.

Just days after T1 revealed the return of veteran Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro Sam “Dazed” Marine, the team has now locked in its fifth and final member.

After years of clicking heads and taking names in the Overwatch League, Sayaplayer – now going by the name of Spyder – has jumped ship. With the 2020 OWL season now in the rearview mirror, he was released from the Florida Mayhem on October 14. Hours later, his new home is now official.

After a few months of rebuilding, T1’s Valorant roster is now complete. Spyder joins Dazed, Braxton ‘Brax’ Pierce, Keven ‘AZK’ Larivière, and Tyler ‘Skadoodle’ Latham.

Spyder joins the lineup as the only player without a background in Counter-Strike. His teammates all have years of experience in tactical FPS titles while the 22-year-old comes exclusively from pro-level Overwatch.

Throughout his time in the scene, he made a name for himself as one of the most formidable hitscan players. He began on the Meta Athena roster in Overwatch APEX Season 2. His final stint in the amateur scene was 2018’s Korean Contenders Trials. Soon after, he was picked up in the big leagues.

Sayaplayer joined a struggling Florida Mayhem roster and made his mark with exceptional Widowmaker highlights in almost every appearance. He remained with the Mayhem through its transition to an all-Korean roster for the 2020 season. The franchise finished fourth in the North American Playoffs.

While he could hold his own against the best Overwatch DPS players in the world, we’ll have to wait and see how his skills translate in Valorant. The brief announcement video from T1 came with a single collateral snipe, which obviously isn’t much to go off.

There’s no telling how long Sayaplayer has been in T1’s sights. However, with his final OWL match taking place in September, it’s clear he’s already been grinding Valorant for a while.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks as the finalized roster looks to get back to active competition.
