Who is xQc, And Why Is He Blamed For Cheating?
Recently during the tournament events, xQc was pointed out/blamed for cheating in the game. Now those who might not know them, xQc is a famous gamer who takes part in competitions such as this all the time. His popularity on Twitter is remarkable.
This isn’t his first controversy. Currently, he is being slammed by other players for cheating in the game.
Felix Lengyel, aka xQc, revealed his computer screen mid-game while streaming, albeit accidentally, and was quickly outed for presumed cheating during the game.
The scandal surely didn’t subside easily, considering the ‘File Explorer’ folder was literally named ‘Cheats.’ Talk about tough luck. He was suspended from Twitch and, on top of that, a 6-month ban from Twitch Rivals events. Days aren’t really going for Felix, it seems.

Now current information suggests that it was actually not intentional. The gamer defended himself that the cheat folder actually revealed while he tried to mute himself. While he did appear panicked and screamed with generated suspicions among other players, he has a valid reason for the cheat folder.

xQc’s Recent Defence And Statement
According to him, and we are just rephrasing his words for your understanding, the cheat folder was a requirement for Pokemon games. The cheat folder, in reality, contained files within itself named Cyberpunk, Battery, Fall Guys with others. But the folder that opened, to the streamer’s credit, was empty. We will quote exactly what xQc said to let you make your opinion;
“Whenever you download a game like Pokemon, and you have a randomizer, and your randomizer, there’s something called ‘cheats,’ and those cheats are like to make the game different,”: xQc firstly elaborated the reason behind the creation of the folder.
“If you’re doing a certain run, you have to use a cheats folder. It’s called cheats because you’re cheating the game. You’re cheating it. Either to make it harder or easier.” was xQc’s statement about the whole incident, which caused quite a ripple in the Twitch gaming world. If you catch a vision of how the whole incident went down, here’s a video attached for your reference;
This news has, of course, delighted his leftover Twitter followers since then. And we can see in foresight that this incident will do nothing of a solid impact on xQc’s reputation. After all, the whole incident was done in a standard xQc manner. He has given his justification for the incident.
What I did had no impact on the outcome but it was wrong. Sorry again, I wasn’t trying to cheat out of malice I was just trying to entertain. 7 days suspension for now. Ride like lightning, crash like thunder. Go agane. PS: Give my winning to charity and i’ll match it pic.twitter.com/48hgZQoyg0
