Former Overwatch pro Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel showed he’s still an elite player with an insanely clutch Winston play.
xQc’s relationship with Overwatch has always been contentious, and that’s been especially true of late. After his most recent suspension, xQc took a lengthy break from the game, during which he intimated that he might be done with it completely.
After more than a month away, however, xQc eventually did return to the game he made his name in, and has since kept it in the rotation of games he plays as now more of a variety streamer.
Despite no longer being a full-time Overwatch player, however, it seems xQc hasn’t lost his talent. While playing his trademark Winston on Gribraltar Stage 1 offense, xQc pulled off a massive Primal Rage play, jumping back and forth to eliminate five members of the enemy team and claim the first checkpoint.
“Holy shit, what just happened?” a surprisingly calm xQc remarked, “I literally just killed the whole team!”
It might be his personality that has resulted in the massive following that now follows him to whatever game he plays on his stream, xQc originally made his name as an incredibly skilled Overwatch player.
Though xQc’s play was often overshadowed by the controversies he was involved in, during his time in the Overwatch League he nevertheless contended as not only one of the best western main tanks, but one of the best in the world
Unfortunately for fans of xQc as a player, it seems likely that his days competing may be fully behind him now. It seems unlikely that he’ll return to the Overwatch League considering his history with the league and how successful he is as a streamer. After appearing in the Overwatch World Cup 2018 for Team Canada he also stated he’d heard rumors that the tournament may not return, which would likely mean the end of his playing in any competitive setting.
