Twitch streamer xQc has condemned another streamer for making him look like a “psychotic idiot” amid ridicule for accusing Rust opponents of “stream sniping”.
xQc has been in the firing line ever since the OfflineTV Rust server took over Twitch. Rust, a multiplayer survival game released in 2013, has seen a mini-renaissance at the turn of the year, with some of Twitch’s biggest streamers joining the OfflineTV server to fight it.
But gathering so many personalities under one roof was enough to cause controversy, and the server has since been flooded with drama. At the center is Felix ̵
However, a new controversy has emerged. After xQc’s faction “Team Rocket” died in the middle of the sea after an unsuccessful landing on a ship, they returned to find that all the equipment was missing. It turned out that EdisonParks had used information outside to find the drops, and xQc was not happy.
xQc accuses EdisonPark of ‘stream sniping’
The controversy only started when xQc discovered Parks’ location on Myths stream. He was out where the xQc team had died, which would have required external information.
“It’s shameless, guy,” xQc said.
Edisonparks explained that he was logged off the server and watched Ash_on_lol’s stream, and saw two pieces of information about xQc’s team freezing to death and about a helicopter. With this information, he assumed that they had died in the middle of the sea, and followed a convoy until he found the bodies.
oil rig is too far from our base, so I figured it would be worth checking to at least see where the convoy was recently.
so I log in, hop on a boat and follow the convoy’s sailing path from our base, then I run into a body. some circles around and I find some more (3/6)

Park apologized for misusing information he should not have had access to, and offered to return the goods. He said: “I did not understand it at the time, but the reason Myth had made a comment about their helium was because he had seen a clip of those who crashed their helium.
If not for this, there is no way I could have known that a heli was even involved. When I look back, because I acted on information I technically should not have had access to, I think it’s only fair that I give back what I found on the bodies. ”
However, xQc was not satisfied. He said: “I make mistakes and admit most for my own mistakes even if it hurts. Somehow you do real shit and play the denial card every time and make me look like the psychotic idiot. ”
I make mistakes and most of the time admit my own mistakes even if it hurts. Somehow you do a lot of shit and play the rejection card every time and make me look like the psychotic idiot. The radius you had to search was 8 blocks, you found it before we came back. come on

Shroud criticizes ‘juiced’ xQc
xQc has taken a lot of stick from other streamers in recent days to accuse opponents of ‘stream sniping’. Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek said xQc was playing a “dangerous game” with these accusations.
“XQc should really keep things to itself,” he said. “Calling people out for stream sniping is not cool, unless you know for sure they do. He’s playing a dangerous game.”
The Canadian was also forced to apologize after some of his fans sent death threats to other streamers when xQc complained about them on the air.
Shroud defended xQc as a “respectful” person, but condemned some of his on-stream antics.
“I’ve played with him a couple of times, on stream and off-stream, and he’s always super super respectful,” he said.
“But I wish he was a little more respectful of others. I know it’s for content, but sometimes it can hurt a little. He gets poured up when he’s alive. ”
With all the drama caused by PvP taking over the current server, OfflineTV announced that they will release a new, role-playing game-focused server with a smaller number of streamers allowed.
Whether xQc will be one of these streamers is up in the air, but it seems unlikely. It does not fall until January 7, so you can expect the twists and turns on the current server to continue for a while yet.
