Dallas Fuel release xQc

The Dallas Fuel have released Félix "xQc" Lengyel following the announcement of his four match suspension handed down by the Overwatch League.

xQc was suspended for using an emote in a "racially disparaging way" as well as making "disparaging" comments toward Overwatch League broadcasters.

“There are few players out there who have achieved as much success in as short a time as Félix has in competitive Overwatch. Ultimately, it was in the best interest of our organization and Félix to part ways before the expiration of his contract,” said Mike Rufail, owner of the Dallas Fuel, in a press release. “No one wants to see Félix succeed more than we do, and we believe he has a bright future ahead of him. I want to thank him for his time and the passion he brought to the Dallas Fuel.”

The Witchwood will be Hearthstone's first Year of the Raven expansion, and is set to introduce new keywords, deck-building challenges and another single-player challenge mode.

The expansion will feature 135 new cards and two new keywords: Rush and Echo. Rush lets a card attack the turn it is played, but the card can't attack heroes that turn, while Echo lets you continue playing the same card as long as you have the mana to play it again.
