Felix "xQc" Lengyel is among the most popular Twitch streamers, so it makes sense that his massive following is massively damaged by the streaming platform's new anti-bot reform. In the process, xQc has lost over 2.5 million followers in the span of just one week. His Twitch social blade is not looking good.

Like him or not, xQc has millions of followers all over, and you wouldn't wish that on anyone. He has millions of followers on Twitch, but this week, the millions have been reduced considerably as Twitch takes serious action against bot accounts that boost viewership and follower numbers. Aka, xCs's Twitch social blade suffered badly.

How Many Followers Has xQc Lost?

According to multiple tracker sites, xQc has already lost over 2.6 million followers on Twitch and that number continues to grow by the hour. It is entirely possible that he may reach the 3 million mark by the time the cleansing of bots is done.

Why Did xQc Lose Followers?

Because Twitch employees have suddenly woken up. The Twitch Support Twitter profile tweeted yesterday evening that they have detected 7.5 million accounts "that break terms of service" by bot-viewing and bot-following. So xQc lost his followers due to Twitch regulations.

As Twitch is going after these bot accounts, these millions of potential viewers and followers will of course get lost. Being among the largest streamers on the platform, xQc is understandably among those hit the hardest. 2.6 million does seem a lot, compared to the total of 7.5 million bot accounts that were detected, but remember that these are not attached to a single channel. It's not like Felix Lengyel holds a third of the bots by and for himself.

In response to the sudden drop of followers, the Canadian simply responded that it's his true subscribers that truly matter.
