Dallas Fuel's xQc Continues to be Controversial As He Takes Aim at CS:GO's Sir Scoots

The drama surrounding Dallas Fuel Overwatch player Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has continued after taking aim at popular CS:GO personality, Scott 'SirScoots' Smith. xQc was suspended and fined by the Overwatch League on Friday, January 19th  for making homophobic remarks towards Houston Outlaws player, Austin ‘Muma’ Wilmot.

The popular Overwatch streamer is known for 'toxic' comments whilst playing, and despite apologizing to Muma for what he said during that stream, he's more than happy to continue to bash others who called him out. SirScoots is a veteran of the esports industry and has a storied history as part of companies that include GotFrag, Evil Geniuses, and MLG. x Read More: x  As CS:GO has grown in popularity, Scoots can often be found on analyst desks or interviewing players across the world at premier levels tournaments. As someone who's had a very successful career, he's not afraid to say what he thinks, and xQc received a fairly blunt Tweet where he called him out for being a joke of a pro player. x As expected this prompted another controversial response in return, with the Overwatch player claiming to have no idea who SirScoots is, before taking aim at CS:GO for being a stationary game where players hide in corners.
"SirScoots, Scott Smith, who the fuck are you? Nobody knows. Who is this guy? I don't even know him. I've never talked to him, I have no idea who he is. Yeah who is fucking SirScoots dude? Who the fuck is this? From CS? Well you should stay in CS, that fucking stationary, peek in the corner gun game. Come on bruh, move on with your life"
  As you'd expect it didn't end there, with the two continuing to talk back and forth about the situation, including a fair number of randoms getting involved to try and stir the pot. At the time of writing the situation appears to have calmed down, with Scoots explaining the impact of xQc's actions effectively impact the rest of esports.   The Overwatch League continues without xQc in week three of stage one when San Francisco Shock take on London Spitfire on Thursday January 25th, although Dallas Fuel won't be playing until Saturday January 27th when they play back to back games against Shock and Boston Uprising.
