The controversial streamer is no stranger to suspensions involving Overwatch, having been banned from the Overwatch League as well.
As a member of the Dallas Fuel, xQc was banned for four games and fined for violating the OWL’s code of conduct after offensive remarks towards Houston Outlaws player Austin Wilmot.
He received a second four day ban for spamming the ‘TriHard’ emote in the chat of the official Overwatch Twitch channel.
Following the controversial behavior outside of the Overwatch League, xQc and Dallas mutually agreed to part ways.
