Felix Lengyel, known by the handle “xQc,” has parted ways with Overwatch League team Dallas Fuel.
According to GamesIndustry.biz, Lengyel and Dallas Fuel have “mutually agreed to part ways” after the player received his second suspension for repeatedly posting an “offensive meme” and using disparaging language against league casters and players. Lengyel made the posts and remarks on both social media and his personal streams.
“Ultimately, it was in the best interest of our organization and Felix to part ways before the expiration of his contract,” Dallas Fuel owner Mike Rufail said. “No one wants to see Felix succeed more than we do, and we believe he has a bright future ahead of him.”

Lengyel’s first disciplinary action was a four-game suspension in January after he made a homophobic comment about a member of the Houston Outlaws following the Fuel’s 4-0 loss against the Houston team.
