It's undisputed that former Team Canada Overwatch pro player Felix "xQc" Lengyel has achieved superstar status on Twitch, thanks to his high energy and profanity-fueled streams. This is, of course, is demonstrated by xQc's massive fanbase of nearly 10 million followers on Twitch, branding him the highest solo-streaming earner on the platform.

However, in an interview at the 100 Thieves CashApp compound last year, xQc revealed that he was forced to move from Texas to Los Angeles. The star said he didn't feel safe after being persistently raided by police at his house in response to false reports.

Despite only having moved into his new LA home in October 2021, the Twitch megastar revealed that he would be moving again following ongoing troubles with his internet connection and distaste for the LA lifestyle.

On 7th January, xQc tweeted an update regarding his connectivity issues, citing that the "internet and overall infrastructure" in his LA residence have "been a little bit of a disaster." 

Followingly, the Twitch star revealed that he was "flying home (wherever that is)" and would return to his usual "big juice" streams soon. While there's no indication of where xQc will stream, some fans suspect he may return to Canada.

Fans were also perplexed by how terrible the LA internet infrastructure is. One fan said, "I live in Africa, and my WiFi doesn't even go off as much as yours (sic), dude." Other fans, in true "juicer" spirit, spammed the thread with troll face memes, commenting, "The 'LA move' incident."

Indeed, this isn't the best start to the year, so fans will have to do without the Twitch megastar for some time while as he figures out his living (and internet) situation. But, of course, xQc can expect fans to flood his stream upon his return.
