xQc hints at buying Rocket League and VALORANT teams
Following in the footsteps of Jeremy "Disguised Toast" Wang and Ludwig "Ludwig" Ahgren, could Felix "xQc" Lengyel be the next high-profile streamer to enter esports?
Toast and Ludwig's new ventures into esports have continued a trend of streamers supporting teams of players and even forming their own organisations to branch out from content creation to competitive gaming.
Now, xQc fancies a slice of the pie after seeing the successes that Rocket League and VALORANT have to offer.
xQc eyes Rocket League and VALORANT Teams
According to the Twitter account @xQcChatMessages - an account dedicated to relaying xQc's personal Twitch messages - the streamer revealed that a phone call he was taking on March 4 was to purchase a VALORANT team.
Aside from VALORANT though, xQc also messaged that he will be looking to enter Rocket League and League of Legends next.
Rocket League has long been an attractive pasture for streamers following the success of Charlie "Cr1TiKaL" White's Moist Esports, although almost every team in the NA and EU sides of RLCS have been snapped up over the last 12-18 months.
As for a french League of Legends team, xQc would have to go fishing outside of the LEC, given that BDS' team will cost millions to purchase.
xQc expresses hopes of buying esports teams
It's not the first time that we've seen the former Overwatch pro get riled up at the prospect of entering esports either, as he previously joked at making a rivalry with Disguised Toast in VALORANT with his own team.
Talking on a previous stream, xQc said, "I’m gonna buy my own team and I’m gonna f**king smoke DisguisedToast."
Especially in VALORANT, streamer bowl could be quite the attractive prospect, with Ludwig's Moist Esports, Toast's Disguised, xQc's new proposition, and Ibai "Ibai" Llanos' KOI all amassing huge followings.
