Streaming sensation Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has recently come under fire for his Twitch gambling sponsorships – but it turns out he might not be doing it just for the money.
xQc has had a pretty contentious few weeks on Twitch since its game sponsorships returned, sparking a lot of discussion on the Amazon-owned website.
After criticism and defense from many industry players including Pokimane, Ludwig, Asmongold and many more, Lengyel addressed the drama and his views on the game.
In a May 19 broadcast, the French Canadian explained that although he was paid a lot of money to promote the game, money is not the reason he does it, pointing to mobile game deals. which he has refused in the past.
xQc turned down millions to promote mobile games
“I like it,” the streamer said of the game. “I was offered half a million or a million to play mobile games for a certain number of hours, and what happened? passed? I said no.”
According to the popular streamer, he refused to spend time playing a game he disliked, even for more money than most will ever make in their lifetime.
“Of course some of these games I don’t like to play. I don’t have fun doing them, so I’m less inclined to take them, because I can’t justify spending my time on this shit when I can do something else with my time,” he explained. .
The former Overwatch League pro further added that the reason he’s more inclined to take game sponsorships is that he actually enjoys gaming.
Sadly, the streamer didn’t say which mobile titles he’s refusing to play on Twitch, but it’s certainly intriguing to think he’d refuse such a massive payday for just a few hours of work. It’s quite a commitment to its own content!
