The streamer who has been the most outspoken so far about the list has been HasanAbi. Earlier today, HasanAbi took to Twitter and Discord to vent his frustration at being ranked as a B-tier streamer.
What’s going on with the streamer tier list drama?
XQC’s tier list ranked streamers from S-tier (the best tier) to C-tier (the worst tier). XQC would rank streamers like himself, Asmongold, and Tyler1 as S-tier. While others like Ludwig, Mizkif, and Destiny were ranked as A-tier.
HasanAbi was ranked as a B-tier streamer, which apparently rubbed him the wrong way. HasanAbi would publicly criticize XQC by claiming that “Mizkif makes better better” and he unironically hates XQC a little now.
Well, XQC is now aware of Hasan’s criticism and has responded.
How XQC responded to HasanAbi
On his stream today, XQC would respond to Hasan’s messages. You can view his response in the clip below.
In the clip, XQC has one of Hasan’s Discord messages displayed on-screen referencing how Asmongold “farmed” the Depp vs. Heard trial better than XQC to hit record viewer counts. Said XQC, “I don’t want to take personal attacks. I’ll refrain to. But the reality is, I think this is pure projection.”
Basically, XQC is saying that Hasan would do the same thing. As the biggest political streamer on Twitch, Hasan often has lots of political content to work with due to the state of US politics. XQC is saying that Hasan “farms” political content for views. As the US political system covers controversial topics, Hasan’s view counts subsequently rise.
We’ll add more to this story as the controversy develops.
