xQc’s Account Name Change

A Twitch representative, Pluto, was able contact xQc and inform him that some “changes” were being made behind-the scenes. He also suggested that a username switch may be possible. After xQc’s approval, the Twitch username changes have been submitted.

This situation is complex and there are many factors to take into consideration. Twitch users can change their usernames every 60 days since 2017. As a result, xQc’s inability to change his username could be due to the “xQc” name being reserved, technical issues associated with extremely popular accounts, or contractual/business-related issues. These factors and others could prevent xQc’s smooth transition to his new username. It is not known when this change will be implemented.

He would be suspended from the Dallas Fuel and subject to a fine for homophobic remarks and racism. xQc was forced to leave the Overwatch League due to this. However, he competed in the Overwatch Contenders league as well as internationally. xQc’s Overwatch history, including the username without “OW”, will remain forever connected to Overwatch.
