The streamer was one of four players recently punished by the Overwatch League, in a widespread crackdown against toxic behavior among the competition's competitors.
Dallas signing OGE certainly necessitated a trimming of the roster at the main tank position as they had Cocco, xQc, OGE, and Taimou all capable of playing at that spot. xQc is an enormous talent, as acknowledged by the team, but the addition of OGE combined with the associated drama made him expendable. Tae-yeong "TaiRong" Kim of Houston Outlaws received a formal warning "for posting an offensive meme on social media", although Blizzard added that his punishment was eased after a public apology and a charity donation. "Ultimately, it was in the best interest of our organization and Félix to part ways before the expiration of his contract", said Dallas Fuel owner Mike Rufail.
Dallas Fuel support player Custa was streaming at the time of the announcement, and was naturally questioned by fans on his opinion of the situation.
In fact, since the news Dallas Fuel have announced that xQc has been released from the team entirely.
Furthermore, Ted "Silkthread" Wang from LA Valiant has been fined $1,000 for account sharing, violating Blizzard's terms of service. This is often used in defence of such behaviour, when in fact it merely heightens the rightful condemnation.
Blizzard reaffirms that demeaning, racist, and hateful speech will not be tolerated from their professional players and that any future violations will receive similar punishments.
