Streamer xQc Joins 1 Million YouTube Subscribers Club

xQc has been celebrating reaching 1 million subscribers on YouTube this week, with the streamer now being one of just 16,000 to have reached such a landmark on the site. Having been surprised whilst streaming the multiplayer social deduction game Among Us, xQc was presented with a cake in the shape of the number 1 and the letter M.

Félix “xQc” Lengyel also has a significant following on Twitch, where he has over 3 million followers, with the 24-year-old Canadian is a former Overwatch pro who had until recently been streaming for Sentinels. xQc represented the Dallas Fuel for the first half of the Overwatch League Season 1, before brief stints at both GOATS and Gladiators.

How xQc Reached This Landmark

xQc, who’s handle was created using the last letter of his first name and the abbreviation of his home province, Quebec, has constantly been in the headlines during his career. In fact, he has been suspended on more than one occasion due to his actions at competitive events. His YouTube channel was first broadcast around the same time as the Canadian started streaming on Twitch, having gained a large following as a result of his videos containing highlights and video on demand.

With over 31 million channels now being found on YouTube, joining the illustrious group of just 16,000 is quite the achievement for xQc. The popular streamer offered his fans a slice of his celebratory cake, however this unsurprisingly did not work out. During his time as a pro, xQc’s biggest achievements came in winning the Rivalcade Weekly #5 North America, Alienware Monthly Melee: May and Overwatch World Cup 2017 – Katowice Qualifier, while he finished as runner up at the 2017 Overwatch World Cup.

Why xQc Has Been in the Headlines of Late

xQC recently accused McconnellRet of stream sniping in Among Us, having been eliminated first in the game. Making his point by stating: “he’s literally stream sniping just to get me, dude, he’s just so sad.”, there is no proof that McconnellRet did carry out such an action, with the duo continuing their rift for an extended period after.
