The Overwatch League is off to a great start but faces new challenges

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 vast talent, as acknowledged by the team, but the addition of OGE combined with the associated drama made him expendable.

Dallas Fuel's Felix "xQc" Lengyel will be suspended for four matches and ordered to pay a $4,000 fine for using an emote "in a racially disparaging manner on the league's stream and on social media, and [using] disparaging language against Overwatch League casters and fellow players on social media and on his personal stream". Blizzard writes that Kim received a lighter sentence because he wrote an unprompted public apology after the incident and he made a donation to the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation.

"There are few players out there who have achieved as much success in as short a time as Félix has in competitive Overwatch", Fuel owner Mike Rufail said in a released statement. No one wants to see Félix succeed more than we do, and we believe he has a bright future ahead of him. He was previously fined $2,000 and suspended for four games for using an anti-gay slur against another player on his personal stream; the Dallas Fuel had added onto the league's punishment by benching him for the remainder of Stage 1.

The Dallas Fuel has announced that they have come to a mutual agreement with xQc to part ways. Ted "Silkthread" Wang, a player for the Los Angeles Valiant, was hit with a $1,000 fine for account sharing.

A big issue esports faces is that the reaction to Blizzard's move has been largely negative within the fandom.

It's undoubtedly true that the sorts of actions xQc was dropped for are frequently encountered when playing online. "It is important for all members to be aware of the impact their speech may have on others".

The Overwatch League slapped a number of sanctions on different players and a coach yesterday.

"Overwatch is committed to building a community that is welcoming and inclusive for all players and fans".
