Overwatch League caster
Montecristo said he intended to help xQc, to have a conversation with him and try to help him improve his standing within the league. xQc responded to the comment via Twitter:
I didn't go to @MonteCristo 's lunch because two hours later I got the official OWL e-mail. I had to do appeal stuff and talks. I didn't want to go down without a fight. Takes 10s to tell him I can't show up but I was in a bad place and don't know how to say these things. Sorry pic.twitter.com/DIuNP6uUUK— xQc (@xQc) March 13, 2018
The Twitter community responded negatively to xQc, assuming he didn't feel like making the effort to show up after confirming. xQc explained that he had other responsibilities that day and that his social anxiety makes it hard to express himself.
Also, people keep saying i'm a douchebag or a bad person. You guys need to chill. I physically run away irl when I fail at interacting, I see the sunlight once every 5 days and have no idea how to translate feelings to others. I don't know any better— xQc (@xQc) March 13, 2018
Whatever your opinions on xQc and Montecristo are, it's important to remember that there's always two sides to stories like these, despite them being made public. It appears there's no lingering animosity between the two, though, judging by another Monte tweet.
Offer will always stand. I do think you are a great player and if I can help you be a successful pro, then I will do what I can to assist you.— MonteCristo (@MonteCristo) March 13, 2018
XQc has not had a good week, as he was first suspended by the league last week and eventually released by his team, the Dallas Fuel. The polarizing streamer garnered plenty of reactions following his release, and it's unclear what he plans to do next.
