The Los Angeles Gladiators have announced the signing of Felix “xQc” Lengyel to their Contenders team, the Gladiators Legion. The teams managing company, Sentinels, tweeted out that xQc would be joining the Gladiators Legion as their backup main tank.
When he is not competing, he will be streaming for the Legion on his Twitch channel. The Sentinels said in a statement “When not competing for the Legion, xQc will both continue streaming a variety of games and conduct a weekly stream with players from the Sentinels and Gladiators organizations in games including Fortnite and Overwatch.
Prior to joining the Legion, xQc played for the Dallas Fuel. He was suspended for the entirety of Stage 1 of the Inaugural Season, and was released by the Fuel on Mar. 9 of 2018. Since then, he has continued to stream on Twitch to a large audience, and even found a spot on the Canadian roster for the Overwatch World Cup 2018.
In a statement from the Sentinels they say, “The Sentinels are excited to announce the signing of Félix “xQc” Lengyel to the organization. The variety streamer will also be playing as a substitute for the Gladiators Legion in Overwatch Contenders. According to today’s Twitch metrics, xQc has been the 5th most popular individual on streaming platform Twitch for the last 30 days with 4.4 million viewer hours, even surpassing pop culture icon Ninja; he also surpassed the official ESL CS:GO channel.”
Charlie Lipsie, Director of Esports stated “We are looking forward to having xQc play for the Gladiators Legion. Since Panker has a two-way contract with the Overwatch League, signing xQc provides backup for the Legion when Panker is not available.”
