Sam "DaZeD" Marine is a retired professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player, analyst and former Counter-Strike: Source player.

He is most known for his time in iBUYPOWER and Quantic Gaming. DaZeD was one of 7 individuals permanently banned from Valve events for his involvement in the North American match fixing scandal.[1] In more recent times DaZeD has been attending events in his local area as an on-screen analyst, this has been very well received by the community despite previous events.



DaZeD got his start in CS during his tenure on various teams in Counter-Strike: Source. Most notably, DaZeD took at top 3 finish under the Check Six banner with his current teammate steel at ESWC 2011.

When he switched over to CS:GO, he rose to prominence when his Area 51 roster finished third place in the first major CS:GO event, ESWC 2012. With Area 51, he won his first ESEA title.[2]

The Area 51 roster left the organisation, and joined 4Nothing, which later merged with Quantic Gaming. The roster eventually broke apart due to internal struggles.[3]

The next step of DaZeD's career was to join the Denial eSports roster.[4] This team eventually left their sponsor, and joined up with Team iBUYPOWER.[5] With the iBUYPOWER roster, DaZeD picked up two more ESEA titles in Season 15 and 16 respectively.[6]

Following allegations of his involvement in the North American match fixing scandal, he became one of the seven individuals banned by Valve.[1]
