Félix “xQc” Lengyel has been released by the Dallas Fuel effective immediately, according to the announcement on the Fuel’s site. Originally, his contract was supposed to expire at the end of the Inaugural Season.
The tank player has been riddled with controversy with xQc being suspended early in Stage 1 while also very recently being handed another, new suspension earlier this week. For this suspension, he was fined $4,000 and suspended for four matches.
“Our focus is to field a roster with players that are available to help the Dallas Fuel succeed now and in the future,” wrote Fuel owner Mike Rufail in the announcement. “Releasing Félix today allows us the flexibility to make additional signings during the league transfer window and allows Félix to pursue other opportunities this season and on stream.”
