Felix “xQc” Lengyel set a new personal record in the Minecraft speedrun, but the streamer received a negative reaction due to the fact that he was coached by another speedrunner. Felix responded to the harsh comments in his recent live broadcast.
Minecraft is one of the most popular speedrunning games due to its accessibility. xQc and Forsen found themselves embroiled in an unexpected rivalry when both began a high-speed Minecraft passage, and their viewers wanted to see who would be the first to set a record that the other could not beat.
In early 2023, xQc broke Forsen’s record two years later, but he returned to managing the game as Forsen broke xQc’s record in March 2023.
To learn new strategies, X asked his fellow speedrunner, k4, to train him, which quickly became a point of contention for those who invested in the feud, as they argued, “this should not be taken into account.”
xQc addressed these comments, saying that it personally seems strange to him that something like this upsets people, and explained that he was just doing a training run before real events.
xQc believes that people criticizing his “trained” running need to “relax”
xQc made a statement, which later got on his xQc Clips channel, saying that viewers were angry that he was forced to “relax”.
xQc went on to explain that this attempt wasn’t even a legitimate launch, he was just playing the game and learning new strategies that had appeared since he launched the game.
His fans agreed with the most liked comment under the clip, which said: “I will never understand why the stimers recognize these lsf/Reddit topics that harshly criticize them or just hate them.”
Despite this, the competition is still ongoing, and xQc’s quest to beat the Forsen high-speed passing time in Minecraft has just begun.
