Dallas Fuel Release xQc From Their Overwatch League Roster

Dallas Fuel Release xQc From Their Overwatch League Roster

The writing was on the wall for some time as xQc failed to keep his name out of the headlines after making multiple crude remarks costing him playing time and money.

Lastly, starting on March 12th, Dallas Fuel's Félix "xQc" Lengyel will be suspended for four matches and be fined for $4,000 for using "disparaging" language against players and the Overwatch League casters on his stream and social media, as well as using an emote in a racially insensitive way on the league's stream and on social media. "Our focus is to field a roster with players that are available to help the Dallas Fuel succeed now and in the future", Rufail said.

Under the suspension rules, Felix, however, would not be able to play or practice for another team throughout the stage two, notes PC Gamer. His contract was originally set to expire after the first season of the Overwatch League had concluded, though Fuel has chose to conclude their partnership early. The Dallas Fuel then upped his punishment by suspending xQc for the remainder of the season.

On Thursday, the Fuel added Min-seok "OGE" Son to its roster.

While the Overwatch League has generated a lot of excitement between teams over the past few weeks, it's also gathered a bit of controversy - and a great deal of it comes from Felix "xQc" Lengyel.

Dallas signing OGE certainly necessitated a trimming of the roster at the main tank position as they had Cocco, xQc, OGE, and Taimou all capable of playing at that spot. xQc is an huge talent, as acknowledged by the team, but the addition of OGE combined with the associated drama made him expendable.

Apart from the players, Houston Outlaws coach Tae-yeong "TaiRong" Kim was also issued a formal warning for an offensive meme on Twitter.

Blizzard has taken action against four competitors that now play in its Overwatch League. Blizzard writes that Kim received a lighter sentence because he wrote an unprompted public apology after the incident and he made a donation to the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation. "We are committed to building a community around the Overwatch League that is welcoming and inclusive for all players and fans, and we hope these disciplinary actions demonstrate our seriousness in that endeavor".

Right now Blizzard is cracking down on players who are part of the Overwatch League. Fans gathering at the stadium are not only an encouragement for the sponsors, but for the teams as well.
