After taking all the Atlanta branding, bringing back his Pepe emotes to his Twitch channel, and sending out a “goodbye Overwatch” tweet, all signs pointed to Daniel ‘dafran’ Francesca quitting the game and walking away from his young Overwatch League career, but now it seems that isn’t quite the case.
After Tweeting that he was walking away from Overwatch, Dafran followed up by uninstalling the game live on his Twitch stream.
“The end. I hate the game. Thought I could love it again and have passion but its impossible,” dafran Tweeted on November 7. “Contract ended, Overwatch uninstalled, Mcdonalds here I come. For real though thanks for everything u have given me OW Community.”
After that, no one heard anything from either dafran or the Atlanta Reign, the team that signed the streamer, on what exactly the situation was, until the next day.
That’s when dafran took to Twitter again to try and clarify the situation, “Still in ATL Reign, didn’t quit like I said. I messed up, don’t know what to say except sorry to the community, my fans, and ATL.”
Still in ATL Reign, didnt quit like I said. I messed up, dont know what to say except sorry to the community, my fans and ATL. It wasnt jebait, sometimes I have these days and make dumb mistakes. Going forward im going to stream less and focus on making myself and my team better

So it seems like dafran will be joining the Overwatch League after all, and not going to work at McDonalds, which should make his fans happy.
For those keeping score at home, this is the fourth time dafran has apparently changed his intentions about the Overwatch League in about as many months.
