Felix “xQc” Lengyel may soon be on the move again.

xQc is already not feeling Los Angeles. The big-name streamer moved to the entertainment capital after dealing with armed intruders and other disturbing encounters at his previous home. After moving around for a while, including a brief stint spent staying with fellow streamer Sodapoppin, xQc landed in Los Angeles. Whilen LA, xQc stayed with HasanAbi in his new mansion before finding a place of his own. But he may already be considering a further move.

xQc told fans during a recent stream that he was considering moving to Texas sometime in the near future. He explained that he just doesn’t like the “big city.”

“I wanted to see what it was like in Los Angeles,” xQc said. “There’s some stuff I’m obviously working on here, and being here is making it way easier. I’m not going to spoil it, but I’m working on a show, and that’s going to be dank. And it really helps that I’m here. That was one of the reasons why I wanted to move here for a bit.”

While xQc has big plans that take place in Los Angeles, he said that the city life is just “trash.” This was something he even felt while living in Los Angeles during the Overwatch League. The city is just not something xQc is used to, describing residents as “wired” and “juiced up.”

“It’s almost like I’m living in a fabrication. It feels so weird. The vibe is odd. When I’m walking around, living in the city, it feels like a different world,” xQc explained.

xQc didn’t open up about when he would be moving to Texas, but he mentioned it was likely to be in the near future. For xQc, he needs to feel passion to produce something he feels proud of.

What happened to xQc?

While dealing with armed intruders seems bad enough, xQc has also been dealing with swatting. This is when another streamer calls the police on another indivual, claiming that there is a dangerous situation going on in their home. In response, the SWAT team will come to the home, sometimes breaking in if they feel the threat is sufficient.

Swatting is very dangerous, sometimes leaving the target dead. People caught swatting other streamers have been arrested and sent to jail in the past.

xQc recently opened up to fans about the “strange” experience of being swatted.

“I think they thought I was a meth addict,” xQc joked. “They kept asking, ‘Dude when was the last time you’ve eaten?’ I said six hours ago. They asked for the truth.”

xQc joked that the SWAT team felt he was a drug addict who had been up for days. While xQc was clearly able to laugh about the situation after the ordeal ended, xQc and other streamers have expressed concern over swatting in the past.
