As season 12 of Overwatch draws to a close, tensions are running high as players try to climb as high as they can, nowhere was this more apparent than the stream of Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, who absolutely lost his mind after being eliminated during a match.
While attacking the second point on Volskaya Industries, xQc is hacked, and then killed by the enemy Sombra, this all proves too much for him and he proceeds to promptly lose his mind.
“Well done, wow!” xQc screamed into mic. He then started to say something else but it just kind of turned into one long, unintelligible scream.
After laughing to himself and slamming his desk xQc tries to regain his composure before pushing the point with his team.
He gets a good charge on the enemy Reinhardt and his team is able to capture the point, causing so much emotion all xQc could do was “surf” on his gaming chair and make noises that kind of sound like a motor.
We’ve come to expect these kinds of regular outbursts from xQc, and it’s one of the reasons for his popularity, but this clip is a whole other level of madness.
Noh ‘Gamsu’ Yeong-Jin of Dallas Fuel has announced his departure from the Overwatch League in an emotional post– but there’s a twist.
On October 17, Dallas Fuel main tank Gamsu officially announced his retirement from professional Overwatch.
With a track record that included positions on dominant teams such as the Shanghai Dragons, Gamsu’s announcement has truly rocked the Overwatch world. Not many could have predicted this to play out like it has.
I’m very grateful for the past three years of playing Overwatch, but I have made the decision to retire and pursue League of Legends again. Please continue to cheer for me as I go into this next part of the journey.
In addition to Soe, a collection of OWL players from across multiple different teams came together to wish Gamsu the best for his future. Notable names included Houston Outlaws’ DPS Jeffrey ‘blasé’ Tsang, Boston Uprising’s main tank Cameron ‘Fusions’ Bosworth and Seb ‘numlocked’ Barton of Toronto Defiant.
A final tweet from Jon Spector, the Vice President of the Overwatch League encapsulated the feelings of fans and colleagues alike, where he congratulated Gamsu for being ‘at the top of the world’ in both of his professional game titles: Overwatch and League of Legends.
Good luck Gamsu! It’s an amazing accomplishment already that you’ve been at the top of the world in both OW and LoL – excited to see what’s next for you.
While Dallas Fuel have lost a legend, LoL has gained a new one.
Despite what seemed to be a devastating announcement for the Overwatch scene, there’s a silver lining: Gamsu is returning to League of Legends.
Before he made his name on the Overwatch stage the star player made a name for himself as the top laner for League of Legends behemoths Fnatic, with his skills helping score Fnatic third place in the 2016 EU LCS (the predecessor to the current European Championship, the LEC).
The news even caught the attention of former Overwatch player turned Valorant pro for FaZe Shane ‘Rawkus’ Flaherty, who reminisced over Gamsu’s dominant performance as a top laner during his EU LCS days.
good luck Gamsu! I remember watching you back in the day when you were a top laner. Wish you the best of luck and go dominate 😀
