YouTube Gaming sensation Ludwig provided his take on the recent Twitter beef between Twitch stars Felix "xQc" and Blaire "QTCinderella".
Ludwig made an appearance on political commentator Hasan "HasanAbi's" Twitch chat on September 18 and detailed some strong opinions on the French-Candian sensation. The YouTuber opined that Felix created "vertical relationships" and that he treated people like "cogs":
"xQc creates relationships, and believes his value is based off his viewership, and in return treats people like cogs to increase or decrease that value."
Ludwig followed up by mentioning that genuine friendships and communication with xQc were "impossible":
"Which makes genuine friendship and communication impossible."
Ludwig provides his thoughts on the xQc and QTCinderella Twitter beef on HasanAbi's Twitch chat
Earlier on September 17, things got heated after Felix took to his main Twitter account and posted multiple tweets about the issue. In a now-deleted tweet, the former Overwatch pro hit back at QTCinderella's subtweet, calling it "despicable behavior."
He then shared a series of updates, saying:
A few hours later, Felix deleted the first tweet, saying that personal attacks went a "little too hard":
QTCinderella's partner and fellow livestreamer Ludwig provided his views on the debacle during a live broadcast earlier today. He initially shared his views on HasanAbi's Twitch chat and later talked about the same on his YouTube Gaming livestream. He said:
"This was my message about x(Qc), which I still double down on. I think I feel the same way, too, about streaming relationships, which is why you'll notice most of the friends that I hang out with are people like Atrioc, Stanz, Slime, and Nick, and Aiden, and QT."
The Mogul Money Live host explained why he doesn't hang out with streamers outside of streaming:
"I don't really hang out with streamers outside of streaming because when I noticed when I got more viewers, people invited me to more things, would want to hang out with me more. So, every single, daily friendship, and relationship that I keep up with, is generally a non-streaming relationship."
Ludwig called streaming relationships "very fickle" and said:
"I find streaming relationships very fickle. You know, and I feel like it's hard to understand any intentions. It's just a weird thing. I've talked to (Disguised) Toast about it a lot, too. Because it's like, 'Okay, how do you draw the line between a mutually beneficial relationship for content, and for views, and a meaningful friendship that will exist past that.' You know?"
The Los Angeles-based content creator discussed the former friendships he made while working at various places:
"It's different because, like, I worked at Best Buy, and I made a lot of friends there, and I worked at even The Vape Company, I had a bunch of friends there. But you know how you have work friends, and if you leave that job, you usually don't keep contact with them."
The discussion continued with the former Twitch streamer stating how some viewers perceived streamer relationships:
"It's kind of similar with streamers, but it's so heightened because everybody who's watching is like, 'Oh, they're best f***ing friends forever, dude! They're such amazing friends!' and everyone sees that, and they don't see like, the normal people that you hang out with."
