Former professional player Félix “xQc” Lengyel has been suspended from Overwatch once again.
The former Dallas Fuel player was speechless as he stared at the “account has been suspended” message in bold, red letters. But moments later, he broke his silence, saying that he might be moving on from Overwatch due to his most-recent ban.
“I don’t think I want to be a part of it anymore or give it all my energy and all my passion for it,” xQc said. “I think I’m kinda done with it.”
After his Overwatch account was suspended in early August, xQc was also permanently banned from League of Legends at the end of the month. This most-recent ban continues a rocky year for xQc, starting with a multitude of punishments and suspensions from the Overwatch League in early 2018.
When he was competing in the Overwatch League, xQc was suspended 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 the tank player for the rest of OWL’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 OWL stream chat. The 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.
