While streaming on Twitch over the weekend, Felix “xQc” Lengyel took some time to share his thoughts on the current state of the Overwatch League and if he would still try to stay involved.
Using his infamous Microsoft Paint skills, xQc illustrated what he thought has been the trend in popularity of the Overwatch League and why he won’t be a part of it any longer.
“It stagnates,” the former Dallas Fuel tank said about OWL’s popularity. “Then it goes down because they forget where it came from: the excitement, the involvement.”
“The whole concept of why it [OWL] became a thing becomes lost, and that’s what always fucking happens dude,” the streamer continued. “So no, I won’t be part of Overwatch League anymore.”
Because he was part of the beginning of the League, when xQc said popularity was going up, he said he didn’t want to be part of it as the popularity and fan interaction declined.
“I won’t be part of this,” xQc told viewers using paint as reference. “I won’t be part of it."
XQc was one of the original members of the Dallas fuel before he was let go near the end of stage 2 after being suspended by the League.
With a number of streamers and Overwatch personalities announcing they will be joining the league in the upcoming season, it looks like xQc will be sticking to streaming.
XQc is still competing in competitive Overwatch though, and will be with Team Canada as they play in the Overwatch World Cup finals at BlizzCon in November.
