The most popular Counter-Strike: Global Offensive streamer on Twitch, Félix “xQc” Lengyel of Canada, has recently lost that title as a consequence of a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competition. Currently, Alexandre “gAuLeS” Borba is in charge.
On a constantly changing platform prone to huge changes like these, one can only rule supremely so much.
The Brazilian streamer has been active in esports for the past 20 years, which may surprise you. His involvement on the scene has led to agreements with the NBA, Nike, and the Formula 1.
Initially, Borba played Counter-Strike professionally before focusing on leading his own teams, g3nerationX and MIBR.
He took a few years off from his job to pursue a degree in marketing, then returned to esports in 2010. In 2015, he successfully relaunched the g3x brand. Players like Gabriel “NEKIZ” Schenato, Lucas “steel” Lopes, and Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe have benefited greatly from Borba’s experience and advice.
With his ability and co-streaming from the stadium itself, Borba dominated the coverage of the CS:GO IEM Rio Major last month.
Although the Brazilian streamer has already gone to the top of the most-watched list, Dexerto believes it is improbable that he will do it again. Lengyel streams frequently and plays a variety of games, whereas Borba’s ascent is reliant on occasions like this tournament.
Even his room-cleaning stream, where the audience critiqued the enormity of the filth and the fact that he didn’t know how to do his laundry, attracted tens of thousands of views from viewers.
So, based on that, it appears that Borba might have the upper hand if he flaunts an immaculate home and a mastery of detergent varieties.
