Who Is xQc?

Félix Lengyel, better known by his online alias xQc, is a Twitch streamer and internet personality from Canada. Félix is also a former professional Overwatch player, which was the beginning of his rise to fame.

Why Was xQc Banned From NoPixel In April 2021?

xQc’s ban from the NoPixel server in April of 2021 will be his fourth, and quite possibly his last. The streamer will reportedly not appeal his most recent ban. But what was the reason for the popular streamer being banned again?

xQc went live on his Twitch channel to address his NoPixel ban, and the reason is reportedly to do with the police force yet again. Not the real police force, those that role play as police officers on the GTA server.

According to xQc, he has been banned for talking about another player’s ban whilst he was under arrest.

The streamer also revealed that this would be his longest ban yet, lasting a total of 30 days. xQc also hinted and not returning to the NoPixel server once his ban was up, likely due to the rules surrounding the server.
