dafran was suspended during the majority of June 2017 from all Blizzard sanctioned events for throwing games and griefing in ranked play during Competitive Season 5. He was therefore benched from the starting roster of Selfless Gaming.
He later announced that he had thrown the games in an attempt to "get out of playing" professional Overwatch, and that he had quit playing professionally. He mentioned that competing and scrimming had "made [him] very depressed and bored".
Atlanta Reign (October 2018 – March 2019)
