Twitch got one of its most popular streamers enforced holiday, xQc, for cheating

Twitch has given among its biggest stars, former Overwatch pro Félix “xQc” Lengyel, a timeout following the streamer was caught cheating in a Fall Guys tournament.

The bizarre incident unfolded last weekend at Twitch Rivals, some gaming tournaments sponsored by the streaming platform itself. In a fit against fellow streamers Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo and Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, xQc violated the terms of both Twitch Rivals and Twitch by participating in stream sniping — watching the streams of competitors to achieve an unfair advantage.

As a result of his abuse of the rules, xQc has been banned from Twitch Rival contests for the next six months and will also have to forfeit his prize money. In addition to that, Twitch has slapped the streamer with a temporary suspension, though it’s not clear how long that would last.

As Engadget notes, Shroud had already criticized xQc for his actions and even speculated there might be more severe consequences for the former Overwatch pro. He wasn’t wrong.

The incident marks at least the fourth time Twitch has suspended xQc, who was previously banned for showing sexually suggestive material while streaming.

To his credit, xQc has owned up to his misconduct, admitting his wrongdoing and adding that the intention behind it — which was just for giggles — doesn’t justify it

You learned an important lesson kids: don’t cheat (especially during official tournaments).
