Félix Lengyel, better known by his online alias xQc or xQcOW, is a Canadian Twitch streamer, internet personality, and former professional Overwatch player.

He now streams full-time on Twitch as a variety streamer for Canadian esports organization Luminosity Gaming.
xQc with around 3.4 million followers is somewhere close to other big personalities like Shroud, Ninja, and Tfue. However, it is also an injustice to judge a streamer by its followers. To make you a little more surprised, xQc has the most number of views than any channel on Twitch.
