Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is parting ways with Luminosity Gaming, more than two years after signing on as a content creator.
Tic Streamer Felix “xQc” Lengyel has parted ways with esports organization Luminosity Gaming (LG). He signed on as one of LG’s content creators in October 2020 and contributed to the organization’s record streaming views.
xQc is one of the top Twitch streamers in recent years, with a total of 227.23 million viewers as of December 2022, according to Dexerto. LG was also named the top esports community on Twitch based on watch time in 2021 with a total of 40 million views across all of its creators, including xQc which contributed the majority of views.
After more than two years, LG announced that xQc was leaving the organization with a compilation video of its best streaming moments, ending simply with “Thank you xQc”. The streamer also confirmed his departure from LG by quoting-retweeting the video with a blue heart. As of this writing, xQc hasn’t spoken about the reasons for his exit, as fans have started asking him if he’s gone or was fired from LG.
Many fans were emotional at the thought of xQc leaving LG, but also wished him well with his future endeavours, whether that meant joining another organization or simply continuing to make history on Twitch. Some have started guessing where xQc will go next, dropping the names of popular esports organizations like 100 Thieves and Evil Geniuses, both of which have content creation programs. A few seem to want xQc to become a Surveillance professional player, citing a return from the Dallas Fuel, five years after leaving the team.
Despite being a controversial streamer, there’s no denying that xQc has reached some major milestones due to his entertaining streams, and being signed to LG has helped him reach those heights as well. He’s managed to establish a loyal fanbase who keep coming back to watch him perform on Twitch, as well as witnessing some of the drama in his personal life, like his messy breakup with Adept.
It’s still unclear if xQc will join another organization, but at this point in his career, it’s understandable that he decides to do his own thing. What occupies him now are hours and hours of Minecraft speedruns, play with friends on Valorant and Phasmophobia, and Just Chatting streams, among others. It’s safe to say he’ll be fine with or without an esports organization supporting him, unless he’s planning on hosting big Twitch events in the future.
