The Overwatch League has its growing pains, and one team has felt this much more often than others. The Dallas Fuel first had repeated issues with toxic behavior from Félix “xQc” Lengyel, ultimately resulting in his removal from the team. And now, the player who would replace Lengyel has been suspended for four games.
Overwatch League announced today that Minseok “OGE” Son, a new tank player for the Dallas Fuel, will suffer a four game suspension effective immediately. He hasn’t been able to play for the team at all yet.
“As of today, the Dallas Fuel player Minseok “OGE” Son is suspended for four matches for taking part in “account-boosting” schemes during the summer of 2017,” Overwatch League said in a statement. “Account boosting, wherein an individual is paid to increase another user’s Skill Rating, is contrary to the values of the Overwatch League, and violates the Blizzard End User License Agreement.”
OGE will be eligible to play for Dallas in Overwatch League stage three on April 11, a Dallas Fuel representative told Dot Esports.
“OGE’s suspension by the Overwatch League is effective immediately, including tonight’s match,” the spokesperson added. “OGE did arrive in Los Angeles this week and has begun practicing with the team.”
