xQc reacts to Soda’s clip regarding TwitchCon
“You can see that the community and itself are slowly changing,” Soda said during a recent Twitch stream. Overall, Soda thinks the event has become much bigger. The streamer believes that the more the convention increases in size, the less intimate the setting becomes.
“It felt more like a YouTuber convention,” the streamer said, taken aback by the sheer number of internet personalities from other platforms who attended the event.
xQc then paused the video to express his own thoughts during a recent broadcast. “I half agree, because I think it depends on the number of partners,” added xQc.
“There were so many partners. There are two partner salons. So there are a lot of people that nobody knows, or that they don’t know. It’s very diverse, and a lot more numbers.
“Back in the day, if you went to a goddamn partner salon, it would be him and Summit and a few other guys. But now it’s not like that at all,” xQc said, summarizing his own views on the topic raised by Soda.
TwitchCon’s perception of xQc generally seems to align with Soda’s. The convention has grown considerably in recent years.
