The Overwatch League had its fair share of drama during the inaugural season, but nothing really comes close to the tale of how Jonathan ‘DreamKazper’ Sanchez got removed from the league after sexual misconduct allegations came out from not just one, but multiple young women.

The Uprising quickly removed DreamKazper from their lineup as soon as the allegations surfaced and it was clear they weren’t going away anytime soon.

After being released from the team, no one really knows what happened to the player, that is until Youtuber Michael ‘mykL Padilla, released this video claiming to have information on what the disgraced former Overwatch pro has been up to.

According to mykL’s video, DreamKazper has gone from being an Overwatch League pro to working full time boosting accounts, which is the practice of getting paid to play on other player’s accounts in order to get them to a higher competitive rank then they would normally be able to.

“He is not in jail, as many were hoping,” mykL tells viewers in the video, before revealing that an analyst for the Boston Uprising posted in a Discord channel that they had seen one of DramKazper’s Overwatch profiles listed as having last played 17 hours ago.

“Then we got further information about DreamKazper guys, apparently he is boosting Overwatch accounts for money,” mykL exclaims in the video. 

The video also claims that Crusty, previously a head coach for the Uprising, left the team because of how disgusted he was with the way the team handled the DreamKazper situation.

It’s pretty surprising that an individual like DreamKazper would still be able to access Overwatch at all as based on his past behavior, he seems like someone that would have received extensive bans from Blizzard.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
