Twitch’s top streamer Félix “xQc” Lengyel is eyeing Valorant as his next venture, as reports of Turtle Troops joining the “juicer squad” pick up steam. 

xQc is purely a variety streamer. He’s created a massive fanbase that continues to grow in 2023. But, following in the footsteps of fellow streamers, xQc could be the next streamer to buy a Valorant team. However, it doesn’t come off as surprising, considering xQc’s rich esports background in Overwatch

Now, reports claim that xQc is in talks with the Turtle Troops, a well-established North American team. 

Recently, xQc took to Twitch to express his interest in dipping his toes back into esports, but this time, as an org owner. So naturally, fans buckled up for a Disguised Toast, Moist Mogul, and xQc’s Valorant team rivalry, fueling the hype. The Twitch Valorant community is currently elated and ready for a year of exciting competition if rumors of xQc’s Valorant team come to fruition. 

Who is Turtle Troop in Valorant?

According to reports, xQc is already eyeing the North American FA roster dubbed Turtle Troops. The quintet is already making waves in Challengers NA. Beating G2 Esports 2-0, the team made tweets hinting at a “Juicer” acquisition. The official handle also tweeted out a banner with “something is coming” written on it.
