xQc left stunned by annoying Overwatch glitch while playing Reinhardt

The former Overwatch pro turned Twitch megastar Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s Overwatch Season 21 placement matches took a downward turn when the experienced Tank player was surprised by an unfortunate glitch on the Hollywood map.

Overwatch giveth, and Overwatch taketh away, and few people experience this rule more frequently than xQc.

While no longer gracing the stage of the Overwatch League, the French-Canadian streaming star still queues up for placements each new season.

A veteran of OWL, xQc’s streaming career has grown immensely.

Six hours into his on-stream grind, xQc was off to a great start in his Tank placement matches, sitting at 7-2 heading into his tenth match.

Tasked with stopping the payload on Hollywood, his Reinhardt squared off against the same hero on the enemy team, but an unfortunate glitch completely derailed the former pro’s momentum.

He attempted a charge, but his character model collided with the wooden post of the porch that he was standing on, causing no damage to the enemy and resetting the ability’s cooldown.

xQc was flummoxed by this, but if you slow down the clip and pause at the point of impact, he has every right to be. When Reinhardt is stopped, you can clearly see that he’s shouldn’t be hitting the post. In fact, he’s not even that close.

Frustrated, xQc’s fight with the enemy Reinhardt goes about poorly as it possibly could. His Earthshatter ultimate gets blocked by his enemy’s shield, and their Fire Strike pierces right through his shield, dropping him.

The streamer didn’t take too kindly to his chat mocking him after the play. “Why are you making fun of me?” he asked. “It literally bugged, the game literally f**king bugged. I’m not kidding.”

After the round was complete, xQc went back and looked at the clip to prove to his chat that it was a bug, and his stunned expression tells the whole story.

But despite the bug-induced frustration, he would still won the match — claiming his eighth of the day in the final seconds of sudden death. He finished the day 10-2 in matches playing Tank… A productive day, all things considered.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
