Mizkif claims he will not create streamer ranking amid xQc and HasanAbi controversy

Twitch star Matthew “Mizkif” shed some light on the streamer leaderboard fiasco, claiming that he won’t be making a similar list any time soon.

The streaming community continues to feel the aftershocks of the massive drama surrounding Twitch sensation Felix “xQc” and political commentator Hasan “HasanAbi.”

On June 17th, Mizkif uploaded a new video to his official YouTube channel and spoke about the streamer drama. As the video continued, he responded to fans asking him to rank various Twitch influencers and declined their request, saying:

“It’s just not worth it to me.”

Mizkif took the opportunity to talk about the streamer drama by uploading a 12-minute video titled “Regarding My Friends…” to his main YouTube channel.

The OTK (One True King) co-founder started the video by providing some context for his viewers and making it clear that he wouldn’t be doing a streamer ranking any time soon:

“The reason why I don’t want to do that. I’ve been asked a thousand times to really rank streamers. That’s because I don’t want that. I think it’s just going to piss people off whether they wanna show me or not, if they wanna be as loud as Hasan was, and I don’t want people to get mad at me for something that’s just a 20 minute one content is in my stream.”

The Austin, Texas native went on to explain that he considers many content creators on Twitch his friends and doesn’t want to lose the friendship by ranking them on a scale.

He also mentioned how these lists end up hurting the feelings of different personalities. As a final note, Miz provided his reasons for not creating and ranking Twitch Stars:

“But no, I’m not going to do any of those rankings. I find them a bit too much and uncomfortable pissing off some of my friends. I know Alinity doesn’t think so, but I do.”


Fans react to the streamer’s address

Fans in the YouTube comments section loved the introductory portion of the video and applauded his responsible and professional approach. Some fans stated that Mizkif is slowly turning into Ludwig.

The Twitch controversy began earlier this week, on June 15th, when xQc ranked several well-known Twitch streamers on the list. He placed at the top of the list known as the “Face of Twitch” along with Asmongold, Summit1G and Tyler1.

xQc also grouped other Twitch streamers like TrainwrecksTV, Greekgodx, Erobb221, HasanAbi, and Pokimane in the “B” category. Some of these streamers took issue with Felix’s subjective opinions and asked for a reason to group them in said category.

The controversy started a day later when HasanAbi went to the Discord server and continued ranting after posting several controversial messages dissing xQc.
