Overwatch League just announced a couple of punishments for several players, including two of Dallas Fuel's notorious troublemakers. Timo "Taimou" Kettunen has received a $US1000 ($1283) fine for calling another player a "fucking faggot kid" on his personal Twitch channel this past January. Félix "xQc" Lengyel has gotten hit with a $US4000 ($5131) fine and a four-match suspension for referring to an OWL caster as "cancer", spamming the "Trihard" emote, and talking trash about other pro players such as Houston Outlaws player Jake Lyon.


It's been a rough past few days of a rough month of a rough first season for Dallas Fuel, the Overwatch League's most star-studded team. Today alone, one member, Timo "Taimou" Kettunen, finally apologised for using a homophobic slur on stream, while another, Félix "xQc" Lengyel, said he might quit the team entirely.


The Overwatch League's first day of competition kicked off with hundreds of thousands tuning in on Twitch to watch a slightly tuned up broadcast; OWL's experienced commentating crew; and two boring, lopsided opening games. Both the Los Angeles Valiant and the Los Angeles Gladiators steamrolled their opponents (San Francisco and Shanghai, respectively) without much resistance or flair, save for some nifty Doomfist play from the Gladiators' Hydration. With the mighty Seoul Dynasty (formerly known as Lunatic-Hai) closing out the day, there was reason to worry that the League's first day might go by without a single close game or at least some tactical intrigue.
