Why Luminosity Made Their Move for xQc Now
A host of leading streamers have also signed for organization’s over recent weeks, with Luminosity Gaming’s North American rivals TSM having announced that Hikaru and Pokelawls, with the former actually being xQc’s personal chess coach. However, Luminosity’s capture of xQc is undoubtedly the biggest of them all, with the organization having an excellent track record when it comes to developing streamers. However, xQc will be hoping he fares better than Ninja, who having signed for Luminosity in 2017, left just a year later following his decision to move to HIZI, PUBG and Fortnite, where his career really took off.

Part of his success of late has centered around the increasingly popular online multiplayer social deduction game, Among Us, which comes from developer InnerSloth.
