Former Overwatch League pro and alleged sexual predator Jonathan ‘DreamKazper’ Sanchez may still be playing on his main account. 

The ex-Boston Uprising star was released from the team during the league’s inaugural season after sexual misconduct allegations involving minors surfaced

Prior to the allegations coming to light and his contract being terminated, Sanchez was considered one of the most dominant DPS players in the league at the height of the dive meta.

DreamKazper’s Genji and Pharah play combined with Nam-joo ‘Striker’ Kwon’s Tracer dominance made for a terrifying combination.

While the disgraced ex-professional is rarely talked about and considered a black mark for the league, that apparently has not stopped him from continuing to play Overwatch. 

As we reported in October, it was suspected that Sanchez was still making a living through Overwatch by boosting accounts. Now, it would seem that his main account is still active.

On September 17, Guangzhou Charge DPS Charlie ‘nero’ Zwarg uploaded a photo to Twitter showing a screengrab of an account called “repzakmaerd” which is DreamKazper spelled backwards.

According to Nero, this is Sanchez’s main account.

The screengrab shows a DPS player with a Season 3 SR high of 4728. The most-played heroes are McCree, Soldier 76 and Genji, two of which Sanchez is known to play.

Dexerto reached out to an anonymous pro with knowledge on the situation for comment and asked if the account belongs to DreamKazper.

Blizzard EntertainmentDreamKazper was known for his Genji play.

“I know it’s him because of the season history,” the pro said. “It used to be a different name after he got exposed. And he would talk in voice chat.”

There is very little in the way of details about what happened with DreamKazper after he was released and the sexual misconduct allegations, but if this recent news is to be believed, he’s still out there lurking on Overwatch.

G2 Esports smashed Gen.G to reach the League of Legends Worlds 2020 semifinals with a punishing 3-0 victory, as the West’s only hope continues to battle on.

It was this G2 roster that put the nail into the SKT and LCK dynasty’s coffin as they extended their perfect record with a near-flawless victory.

As the final representatives of the LEC at Worlds, the pressure was on for G2 to perform. And, despite a late game three fightback from Gen.G, the Europeans’ victory was never really in doubt.

Caps was the star of the show, channeling his Claps form with two dominating Sylas performances and fully stacking his Mejai’s Soulstealer in game two. Perkz was equally exceptional on Jhin, perfectly timing his curtain calls and hitting a beautifully timed QSS on a Twisted Fate gold card in game three.

While Gen.G often came out of the laning phase either even or ahead, G2 destroyed them in teamfights and small skirmishes with better mechanical play and punishing even the slightest Gen.G mispositioning.

Even though Rascal’s Volibear won Gen.G a lone game three teamfight to give them hope, G2 completely outclassed the LCK hopefuls.

The closest G2 came to throwing actually came after the game, when Wunder and Perkz threatened to catapult Caps off the stage.

G2’s performance provides a timely reminder that the west can match anyone in pursuit of the Summoners Cup this year.

Post-game reactions

In each game, G2 managed to force a level one flash out of a Gen.G player. So, despite his exceptional performances on Pantheon and Rakan, support Mikyx was quick to credit G2 analyst Duffman for their “broken” level one success.

Wunder gave his full reaction to the match in a video interview after they closed out the 3-0, praising Caps’ incredible individual performance.
