Félix "xQc" Lengyel will not practice with the Dallas Fuel during the duration of his Stage 1 suspension. He will be required to keep from further incidents or the suspension will extend past Stage 2.
xQc received the suspension after he made inappropriate and homophobic comments towards Austin “Muma” Wilmot, a Houston Outlaws player in the Overwatch League. Overwatch League originally made his suspension for two weeks, but the Dallas Fuel extended the suspension to last until the end of Stage 1.
xQc has already stacked up a rap sheet of suspensions within Overwatch as a whole. The player was also suspended from competitive play after allegedly throwing games on his popular Twitch stream. The ban lasted seven days and preceded the start of the Overwatch League.
Missing out on practices will be detrimental to his development on the team but isn't too far-fetched of a concept of leagues in traditional sports. xQc will have to look to streaming to get valuable play time to stay competitive.
