XQc has been spotted playing Overwatch off-stream again

The streamer is quiet about it, though.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel seems to be playing Overwatch again now that his 24-day game ban is over.

XQc hasn’t streamed Overwatch since Nov. 17, when he said he’d quit the game due to a ban, which he was given for undisclosed reasons.

But now it seems he’s back. XQc was playing a competitive Overwatch match as Winston last night and got a six-player kill on Horizon Lunar Colony. Overwatch League player Lane “Surefour” Roberts was on xQc’s team and caught his play and voice communications while livestreaming.

The clip shows xQc’s team defending the second point on the map. He’s in the distance diving into the enemy team and getting three quick kills on D.Va, Hanzo, and Lúcio with Surefour’s assist. The enemy Genji uses his ultimate ability to get two kills and soften Surefour to his team’s Ana, who finishes the OWL player. XQc was far from the fight, which was taking place on the point.

XQc then jumps back to defend the area and gets a revenge kill on Ana. He also finishes off the opposing Genji and jumps on another Winston to get the sixth and final kill, screaming “six!” in his team voice chat. Surefour is clearly impressed and jokingly says “who is this legend?”

While xQc is clearly back in Overwatch, that doesn’t mean he’s going to start streaming his gameplay again. He’s become a variety streamer since he was banned from Overwatch on Nov. 17, playing games such as League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

XQc has not mentioned the match on his social media accounts, despite the clip from Surefour’s stream having over 63,000 views at the time of writing. Fans might have a better idea of xQc’s future in Overwatch if he’s spotted in other matches off-stream or starts streaming it again.
