Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel will be heading back to professional Overwatch as an influencer for Sentinels, the management company of the Los Angeles Gladiators.
xQc was a member of the Dallas Fuel during the first season of the Overwatch League, but parted ways with the teams after being suspended in Stage 2.
After that, he went back to streaming full time but still played for Team Canada in the 2018 Overwatch World Cup.
During a stream on Tuesday, February 12, xQc surprised viewers by announcing he would be joining Sentinels and heading back to Southern California.
“Shields Up baby!” xQc told viewers as he appeared decked out in Gladiators gear. “Boys, I just joined the Gladiators and the Sentinels, it’s been like that for a while now, I’ve been signed like a month and we can finally announce it.”
“Dude it was so hard to keep it under wraps, it’s been so long, but I’m super excited, dude I can’t talk with no headphones on,” the streamer told fans. “So I’m going to be sub tank for the L.A. Gladiators Legion team.”
Sentinels officially signed xQc as an influencer and as a substitute for the Legion, and he’ll get a chance to play when the Gladiators move tank player Byung-ho ‘Panker‘ Lee up to their main roster.

“I’m going to have a Visa to go to the United States again,” xQc told his stream. “Go back and chill with all the people from the Gladiators. Surefour, Hydration, all the boys, do some IRL stuff with them.”
xQc is definitely one of the most divisive figures in Overwatch, as it seems like people either love him or hate him, but his fans will definitely be happy to see him around the Overwatch League again.
