Among Us is one of the most popular games on Twitch right now. But it’s also been a vehicle for conflict between many of the streamers competing against one another in the game.
One streamer who’s been involved in some of the biggest arguments within the game as of late, xQc, alleged that a player was stream sniping during a recent stream.
XQc felt that World of Warcraft streamer McconnellRet was stream sniping during the game. After being eliminated, xQc said to his stream: “he’s literally stream sniping just to get me, dude, he’s just so sad.”
After the chat questioned his allegation, xQc doubled down, saying that he became suspicious of Mcconnell stream sniping during the previous round. “Guys, here’s how I know, last time when I was a crewmate, I said something on stream and he ended up bringing it up in a discussion on Discord when he should be listening to me,” XQc said.
While there was no proof that Mcconnell was stream sniping outside of xQc’s allegation, the pair of streamers continued by taking shots at one another. XQc began criticizing Mcconnell’s ability to play WoW, saying that he believed he’d be better at the game regardless of not playing it anymore.
“You could play WoW for another entire lifetime and you’d still be worse at the game that I don’t even fucking play,” xQc said. “That’s the truth dude regardless of how you see it, it’s tough to buy man but that’s just how it is. Mcconnell responded by calling xQc a variety Andy before xQc defended himself, saying he was a “multiple Gladiator titleholder.”
XQc has been one of the most consistent streamers playing Among Us over the past week or so, having put in regular over eight-hour streams of the game.
