August hasn’t been the best month for former Dallas Fuel tank player Félix “xQc” Lengyel.
Just a few weeks after his Overwatch account was suspended, xQc has now been permanently banned from League of Legends.
The former Dallas Fuel player was streaming League when he received an in-game message that said he’d been banned from the popular MOBA.
“Because a player-triggered review found your in-game comms extremely inflammatory and offensive, your account’s been permanently suspended,” the in-game message reads. “You are among 0.006 percent of League players negative enough to be permanently banned.”
The message also suggested that xQc’s in-game communication was “far below the standards of the League community.” It even showed examples of some of xQc’s in-game messages, which included phrases like “kill me now” and “forgot [auto attacks] cost mana.”
This former Overwatch League player is no stranger to receiving punishments, however. He was first suspended from the Overwatch League for four days and fined $2,000 in January for making homophobic comments about a fellow OWL player while streaming on Twitch. Dallas Fuel then suspended xQc for the rest of Overwatch League’s first stage.
XQc was later suspended again on March 9 for four games and fined $4,000 for using an emote “in a racially disparaging manner” in the Overwatch League stream chat. Overwatch League also cited xQc’s “disparaging language” against both casters and fellow players on stream and on social media for the punishment. He was then released by the Dallas Fuel on March 11.
The good news for xQc, though, is that he’s still eligible to compete in the Overwatch World Cup in September. But don’t expect to see him on Summoner’s Rift anytime soon.
