Professional player xQc speaks about leaving Dallas Fuel.
Former Overwatch League star and controversial streamer, xQc, has talked about his team in the competition and how he was treated like a leper.
xQc shot to notoriety at the start of 2018; he received a four-game ban and a fine for homophobic comments directed at Austin “Muma” Wilmot of the Houston Outlaws. He was later fined and banned again before leaving Dallas Fuel.
This was due to a racist emote on Twitch and some disparaging comments about the league’s caster. The former is something that he has disputed, saying that he uses the TryHard emote all the time when entering streams.
xQc Speaks Up
Do you sometimes purposely destroy things you care about or worked hard for just to challenge yourself to get it back and prove yourself you still have what it takes?

Despite this, Félix Lengyel has managed to keep a strong Twitch following, with more than 10,000 concurrent viewers. He is also set to be playing for Team Canada in the Overwatch World Cup.
While it was a mutual parting of ways between the two parties, xQc has revealed that he was pretty miserable in the team. On his live-stream, he explained that after being kicked, he felt like an outcast with both Dallas Fuel and Twitch.
The orgs didn’t like me anymore; they cut communication with me. Twitch didn’t like me at all; they were scared . . . Everyone was scared of me. I was like a monster. I was just streaming, and nobody would talk to me. It was like I was like a leper.”
Ouch! He looks to be doing well for himself now though; he’s arguably one of the best tanks in the world. Hopefully, we will see him do well with Team Canada and whichever org he ends up with in the future.
