Dallas Fuel Players Pay Tribute to Former Team-Mate xQc in Overwatch League

Dallas Fuel players paid tribute to former team-mate Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel ahead of their match against Houston Outlaws in Stage 4 of the Overwatch League.

As the starting players were being introduced at the start of the match, members of the team that had competed alongside xQc in the first two stages made a trademark gesture of his to the camera.

xQc’s ill-fated tenure with the Dallas Fuel was mired in controversy. Though the team struggled on a number of fronts for most of the season, having main tank xQc suspended on two separate occasions for his behavior outside of the game was undoubtedly a big contributor.

It seems there are no hard feelings for xQc’s former team-mates, however. The team has managed to turn things around significantly in Stage 4, and going into their match against the Outlaws they took a moment to pay tribute to their former team-mate.

One of those controversies actually related to the Houston Outlaws themselves, with xQc’s first suspension – which was extended to the end of the first Stage by the Fuel themselves – coming in the aftermath of a jibe by Outlaws main tank Austin ‘Muma’ Wilmot, to which xQc’s own response resulted in his punishment.

Though the two players reportedly made their peace on a personal level, it could only have heightened the competitive rivalry between the two Texas teams, which might perhaps have been why the Fuel players chose to invoke xQc ahead of this particular match.

The Houston Outlaws ultimately won the series 3-1, a crucial result to keep their hopes of reaching the end-of-season playoffs alive. The Fuel have long since dropped out of that particular race, but they can still make it to the Stage 4 playoffs.

Meanwhile, it has recently been announced that xQc will return to competitive play, joining GOATS to compete in Contenders Trials NA.

Crafty Overwatch spot can give you the drop on Lijiang Tower

A new perch where Overwatch players can hang out has been discovered on Lijiang Tower’s Night Market stage, and it’s somewhere the enemy team will never think to look.

There are plenty of out the way and unexpected spots you can post up on in Overwatch, and the stages of Lijiang Tower contain a good number of them.

With plenty of roofs, walkways, nooks, and crannies, there are plenty of places to lay in wait for unsuspecting enemies, but this one discovered by Reddit user InfamousHandy on a whole other level.

Overwatch Lijang Tower Night market spot ( IDK if this spot was shown before) from Overwatch

In the area just outside the spawn room, there’s a building to the right (or left depending on which side you’re on) that’s covered in dark awnings. As you can see, with an ability like Reaper’s Shadowstep it’s actually possible to get up there and chill as long as you like.

If you can get up to this spot on the enemy side with your ult without being seen or destroyed, you have a chance to drop down and score some eliminations while the other team is still regrouping.

It’s not just Reaper who can reach it either, Echo, Pharah, and Lucio also can on their own, and any hero can as well with the help of Symmetra’s Teleporter. Just imagine what it would be like to get a Bastion up there.

The only downside is that to have any chance in a regular match of getting kills with this, you will most likely have to make your way to the enemy side of the map, which can be a challenge all on its own sometimes.

Side corridors are your friend for sneaking around on Night Market, shown here, ironically, during the day.

To increase your chances of making it across undetected, we’d suggest using the side corridors, if you lack a movement ability that lets you avoid the ground altogether, like Lucio.

With the Lunar New Year event coming right up after Winter Wonderland though, this strat might be worth keeping in your back pocket for those special Capture the Flag modes.
