Dallas Fuel player Félix "xQc" Lengyel has found himself in hot water once again, this time for directing an insensitive insult at a player for the Houston Outlaws, shortly after the Outlaws swept Fuel 4-0 yesterday.
The Overwatch League announced the punishment on Twitter just before the Dallas Fuel took the league's stage on January 19 to face London Spitfire.
The league released a statement saying Felix had been suspended for "violating the Overwatch League Code Of Conduct during his individual stream on Thursday". In addition to the league's four-game suspension, we will be suspending xQx for the remainder of Stage 1.
"We believe in working with our players to help them become the best possible competitors, professionals, and teammates", Dallas Fuel wrote on Twitter. The organization also said that it will provide focus coaching, physical training and other resources to help xQc improve as a professional to be more reflective of their organization and the league. Overwatch League plays four five-week stages, for a total of 40 matches a season.
The pair have since reconciled over the remarks on Twitter, with Wilmot writing in response to Lengyel's apology: 'No hard feelings at all and I apologize for what I said back. 'That includes work both inside and outside of competition for Felix'. The lack of one of their main tanks will not make it any easier for the team to turn around an unexpectedly weak start to the league. "I legit did not compute the whole thing before".
xQc has been a controversial player in the past, and has been banned and reinstated from Overwatch on multiple occasions. I speak too fast, everything happens too fast. However, the Overwatch League is a multi-million dollar endeavor filled with sponsors and countless corporate interests.
xQc first joined the Fuel in October after competing on various different squads in Overwatch prior to the formation of the Overwatch League.
You can check out the event on the Overwatch Twitch channel. Philadelphia Fusion tank Su-min "SADO" Kim was suspended for 30 games by the league in November for account boosting.
