xQc responds to fan complaints over “lazy” streams amid contractual obligations – Popular Twitch streamer xQc has found himself in the midst of controversy as some of his fans criticize the quality and effort put into his recent streams. Despite the glitz and glamour of his Vegas adventures and a jaw-dropping deal with Twitch rival Kick worth over $100 million, xQc is now facing backlash over what some perceive as lackluster content.
The controversy comes on the heels of xQc’s acknowledgment that he’s fallen behind on his contractual obligations with Kick. He attributed his difficulties in meeting these obligations to illnesses, European travel, and his participation in TwitchCon.

The fan’s post suggested that while they appreciated the stream’s length, xQc’s energy and effort levels were subpar, leading to less engaging content. Many other fans echoed this sentiment, voicing their desire for shorter, high-energy streams.
Critics argue that xQc hasn’t shown the same enthusiasm for gaming in 2023 as he has in previous years. They point out that he has yet to complete many AAA games this year, with only “Hogwarts Legacy” and “Lies of P” under his belt. Viewers believe that he’s capable of delivering more exciting and engaging content and express disappointment in his perceived reluctance to do so.
In response to these complaints, xQc appeared to take a somewhat sarcastic approach, posting a detailed schedule of games and activities in his chat. This response seemed to highlight the perceived absurdity of micromanaging his content and entertaining fan expectations.

xQc had joined Kick with the intention of creating cool, high-quality content with the financial backing of the platform. Fans suggest that dedicating a small portion of his streaming time to a variety of video games, as he had promised, would appease his audience.
As the controversy surrounding xQc’s streams continues to unfold, it remains to be seen if any significant changes will be made to his streaming schedule. Fans are hoping to see more enthusiasm and higher-quality content from the popular streamer.
