After a myriad of disciplinary issues during one of the worst streaks in organization history, the Dallas Fuel have finally reached a mutual separation with main tank player, Félix "xQc" Lengyel. Formerly of Denial Esports and Arc 6, xQc was one of the most sought after Winston players in the pre-Overwatch League landscape by merit of his stream and teams’ strong performances. However, his zealous personality landed him in hot water, as he was suspended for homophobic remarks against Austin "Muma" Wilmot earlier in the season. After continued poor conduct violations, he was fined $4000 and suspended for four games earlier this week, which may have lead to his eventual release by the organization.
Dallas Fuel have had issues adjusting to their main tank after Christian "cocco" Jonsson’s slump in performance. xQc was supposed to be the primary tank option, but has had very little playing time due to his suspensions. Fuel have formally signed former Conbox tank Son "OGE" Min-seok, who should be slotting in immediately. xQc was contracted to play through the end of Season 1.
Owner Mike Rufail had the following to say regarding the separation:
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. I want to thank him for his time and the passion he brought to the Dallas Fuel.
