Dallas Fuel Drops xQc After Second Suspension

It was a "mutual decision."

We previously reported on the four-game suspension of Overwatch player Félix "xQc" Lengyel, after the use of Twitch emotes "in a racially disparaging manner." Now his team, Dallas Fuel, has decided to cut xQc from the team.

After the recent events, Dallas Fuel and xQc have agreed to terminate his contract, which was due to expire at the end of the first season. Dallas Fuel owner Mike Rufail spoke about their decision.

"There are few players out there who have achieved as much success in as short a time as Félix has in competitive Overwatch. Ultimately, it was in the best interest of our organization and Félix to part ways before the expiration of his contract. No one wants to see Félix succeed more than we do, and we believe he has a bright future ahead of him."


xQc's behavior has caused him to miss a total of six games in the first season. His most recent suspension would leave him absent for the remainder of the second stage. Rufail believes the decision would be better for both the team and xQc, personally.

"Our focus is to field a roster with players that are available to help the Dallas Fuel succeed now and in the future, Releasing Félix today allows us the flexibility to make additional signings during the league transfer window and allows Félix to pursue other opportunities this season and on stream."


Dallas Fuel has now acquired former CONBOX player Son "OGE" Min-seok. He will join the team in stage three, where he will take on xQc's previous role of tank.
