“A phenomenon” – Summit1G on xQc

During a GTA RP stream, Summit1G gave his views on the various creators of Twitch. While talking about Felix, he considered him to be a ‘phenomenon’ because of the number of viewers he gets during his streams. xQc has played many games like GTA RP, Among Us, Minecraft, and many more, but he can still rake in thousands of views even for the most obscure titles. He even considers him to be the current ‘king’ of Twitch surpassing creators like Ninja, Ludwig, and Nickmercs.

“X is, man as a streamer, a phenomenon. It is crazy a phenomenon. Dude, he gets 70k playing League of Legends. It’s bonkers. He is king right now for sure, oh without a doubt.”

Summit1G on the rise of Twitch

Other than that, Summit1G also talked about how the platform is constantly evolving, leading to the rise of a new breed of streamers. He said that a few years ago, Ninja gained massive subscribers and viewers on his channel at the peak of his career. But with the current crop of creators that have become popular these past few months, it seems like they are finally catching up to the icons of the industry.

“Twitch is up and done, we’ll see what happens. It keeps pushing the boundaries. We keep pushing the boundaries. At one point in time, you know, Ninja was f****** slamming numbers, and now, people are starting to creep up on him.”

Recently, Ludwig beat Ninja’s subscriber record during his massive 31-day long subathon. But Summit believes that it would be hard for almost any creator to reach that peak and break those records.

“I know Ludwig just beat it anyways. But regardless, it’s just a realistically an unattainable number for pretty much streamer in existence.”

Summit1G is a legend in the industry, who has been streaming for years. He has seen many streamers become popular and grow along with him, and his points about xQc prove the Canadian’s natural ability to entertain, which has propelled him to the top of the industry.
