Dashy's History

Infinite Warfare

Dashy started out playing and winning online S&D tournaments with well known, young talents.

It wasn't until the later stages of Infinite Warfare that Dashy really started to break into the scene, attending the Anaheim Open and COD Champs.


Was an active year for Dashy, despite not getting the placements he would have desired.


Across ten offline tournaments, Dashy's best placing came at the Canadian Championship Series 2018 National Final (top 4). It was at this stage he had joined compLexity with Parasite, StuDyy and FeLo.

Dashy, finished up the year with a top twelve placement in Stage 2 of the Pro League, as well as top 16 at COD Champs 2018.



Black Ops 4

With Black Ops 4 transitioning to a five-man squad and OpTic's rocky year in WWII, Dashy was at the top of their wishlist; replacing the departing Octane and Methodz.

The fourth instalment of the Black Ops franchise looked to be a return to form for OpTic. Karma was brought back into the team, as well as new addition TJHaly.


The first place at Las Vegas looked like the jump start OpTic needed to get back to winning ways - Dashy's first big event on a "top team" was a major success as he claimed the MVP trophy. However, they were quickly brought back down to earth as the team lacked practice and became overconfident - finishing top 12 at Fort Worth.

The Pro League season failed to see the full extent of what Dashy is capable of, due to visa issue, having to rely on ZooMaa to fill in for him.

It was third place for the Greenwall at both London and Anaheim and they finished up the regular season top of their pro league group.

Top 8 was all that they could manage at the Pro League playoffs, but it didn't hinder their spirits as they looked unstoppable at COD Champs 2019. Unfortunately, two quickfire losses to eUnited and 100 Thieves in the final stages of the competition left them with a third-place finish once again.
