He has a close relationship with his mother and has a dog called 'Kevin' and a cat names 'Lea.'
xQc stems from a combination of the last letter of his first name and the abbreviation of his home province, Quebec. He later added the OW for ‘Overwatch,’ in response to his account being suspended in January 2018.
xQcOW has been playing games his whole life. He enjoys Blizzard’s titles, and spent a lot of his time playing WoW and Warcraft III as well as a few others. He initially began streaming his gameplays in 2015, because he didn’t like playing alone and wanted some company.
He started playing Overwatch when it came out in 2016 and was soon recognized for his skills. This lead to his follower count greatly increasing over time.
In July 2016, he participated in the DreamHack Montreal BYOC Overwatch tournament as part of DatZit Gaming. This gave him the platform that he needed to showcase his skills, which lead to his being invited to join team Q? as part of their tournament line-up. Since then, he has continued to participate in tournaments, while still dedicating a lot of time to his streaming. Although he feels that Overwatch will always be his main game, he would like to stream other games and hang out with other streamers once in a while in the future. He left Team Sentinels in August 2020 because he felt that it was time for a change. He then joined Luminosity Gaming in October 2020.
His channel is not family friendly and tends towards toxicity.
Dark brown eyes and hair. His hair is currently dyed blonde. He is clean-shaven.
No set hours, but xQc streams almost daily from around 06:00 – 16:00 UTC

It’s a skill as a streamer, to know how to… keep that hype in the chat without killing the channel. You have to find the right balance.
