It wasn't that long ago we reported that Overwatch player Félix 'xQc' Lengyel had been banned from the game for abusive chat, and while he's no longer playing for Dallas Fuel in the Overwatch League, it turns out he is eligible to play for Canada in the Overwatch World Cup.

An Overwatch World Cup spokesperson spoke to Dot Esports telling them that xQc had been given a "formal warning" on his behaviour, and that "given that his suspension for this infraction ends on Aug. 26, he will be eligible to play for the Canadian national team at the Overwatch World Cup Los Angeles group stage."
