Popular live streamer and former professional Overwatch player Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has said that he is “kind of done” with the game after having his account suspended again.

Previously given a 15 day ban from Overwatch in August 2018, shortly before he played for Canada at the Overwatch World Cup, xQc has once again had his account suspended this time for 24 days.

Last time, it was for a report of abusive chat, which xQc played down as “banter” – on this occasion the reason for his ban is unclear, but it is rumored to be similar to his ban for toxicity previously.

After discovering he had been suspended, xQc says that he didn’t even receive a warning, which is what usually happens when you are banned for toxic behavior.

“Normally they give you a warning, if you talk shit too much and it says like ‘you’ve been reported a lot for talking shit’ and then you get banned. I didn’t get warned, but let’s be real, we’ve been pretty toxic about the game.”

After letting the news sink in, xQc weighed up whether he would come back and continue to play Overwatch as his main game after his suspension is up.

“I don’t think I want to be a part of it anymore and give it all my energy and all my passion for it.” He says, closing  “I think I’m kind of done with it. I think I’m kind of done.”

As for what he will play and stream instead, xQc says he will likely move into variety streaming full time, where he streams any type of game, especially new releases.

Many other former professional players in a particular game have taken the same route, and many of the most popular streamers on Twitch are variety streamers, including big names such as ‘LIRIK’ and ‘shroud’.

Despite his roots and background in Overwatch, much of xQc’s fan base watches the streamer for his own personality, rather than the game specifically he is playing, so his popularity isn’t likely to diminish even he moves on from Overwatch permanently.

It is another example of disciplinary action taken against xQc by Blizzard, after his multiple in-game bans and his suspension from the Overwatch League, which ultimately led to him being release by the Dallas Fuel.


Pokimane slams Fedmyster’s second OfflineTV document: “Who asked?”

⁠Former Offline TV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan has released yet another lengthy Google Doc regarding the accusations of misconduct against him from OTV streamers, claiming he wants to “move on” from the drama.

Fedmyster was released from OTV in June 2020, after streamers LilyPichu, Yvonne and Pokimane levied accusations of harassment and inappropriate conduct against him.

Following these accusations, it seemed that all was resolved, with Fed having been removed from the group as a result; but a Google Doc seemingly leaked from the disgraced streamer in late November, which set off a chain reaction of outrage across the internet.

In the leaked November document, Fed appeared to accuse Pokimane of not being honest about their relationship to her viewers, and included screenshots of private text messages between them.

While Pokimane went on to respond to this document, saying he’d admitted his guilt, Fedmyster released yet another lengthy statement on December 1, claiming that he had actually never intended to release the original Doc. Instead, he explained that it had actually been a “form of therapy for myself, to address my concerns about the way Poki portrayed me in her stream.”

Fedmyster also purported that a formerly-trusted member of his community had leaked the document, leading to a “violent breach of my trust and against my wishes as I’ve been working hard to grow, heal, and move on from everything.”

The leaked document of Fedmyster’s in November had been titled “My Truth,” and mostly centered around his relationship with Pokimane.

The former streamer likewise addressed allegations that he had attempted to get Yvonne fired from the group due to her accusations against him. Denying that he had ever wanted her kicked from the crew, he claims that his concerns were due to her “lack of excitement and willingness to help with OfflineTV projects when it’s the only reason she’s in the house.”

He included several other explanations regarding his text messages with Pokimane, as well as his portrayal of Jodi toward Poki, who he apologized for, “painting her to Imane in such a poor light.”

Fedmyster ended his document by claiming that he wants “to move on and start a new chapter in my life,” hoping to put the issue to rest once and for all.

Pokimane has since responded to the document with a scathing tweet, writing, “Who asked lol.”

Fedmyster’s long document has been met with similar reactions from readers online, marking yet another episode of an ongoing incident between some of Twitch’s top content creators.
