On Thursday March 26, a twitter user @itsFODDER posted an ominous message about an OWL player preying on minors. Hinting at another scandal within the league, the user noted that they would wait a full 24 hours before publicizing the story, giving the owner of the accusations time to step forward. Late on Friday March 27, the information came to light.
According to twitter user KhaleesiBB, Walid “Mouffin” Bassal engaged in sexual activities with minors through various private messages.

The user had reached out to Blizzard regarding the misconduct. However after an investigation, Blizzard did not move forward with punishment. While Blizzard and the Overwatch League officials were aware of the allegations, it is unknown if the Boston Uprising organization was notified of the investigation. Sources say the players however, were unaware of the misconduct.
TGH has reached out to the team for comment, but have yet to received a response.
This story is currently developing, and The Game Haus will update as more information comes forward.
