Félix “xQc” Lengyel has been removed from the Dalls Fuel squad after being part of the hit list who received a combination of fines, warnings, and bans for breaking behavior-related rules. Lengyel was joined by Tae-yeong “TaiRong” Kim of Houston Outlaws and Ted “Silkthread” Wang of Los Angeles Valiant, though the now ex-Dallas Fuel player received the most severe punishment for repeat offences.
xQc received a fine of $4,000 for using an emote “in a racially disparaging manner” on the Overwatch League stream. The trihard emote was the one that caused offence and it was concluded xQc used it in the wrong sense. According to Lengyel himself, the emote was used 187 times. It’s not the first time he has come under fire for bad behaviour and was previously fined $2,000 in January for homophobic comments targeting another Overwatch player while streaming.
Also, people keep saying i'm a douchebag or a bad person. You guys need to chill. I physically run away irl when I fail at interacting, I see the sunlight once every 5 days and have no idea how to translate feelings to others. I don't know any better

Blizzard is certainly looking to clean up the scene but the company has some way to go if it wants to create some form of utopia.
