Possibly the first of many releases, Daniel “GODS” Graeser has announced that he is no longer with the Toronto Defiant.
Considered to be one of Overwatch’s veterans, Daniel “GODS” Graeser began his professional career on Luminosity Gaming, earning 1st place at the 13th GosuGamers Overwatch Weekly for North America, 2nd at the OG Invitational and at the Alienware Monthly Melee in April 2016. After a 2nd place finish in the second North America Regional Qualifier for the Overwatch Open, Graeser joined NRG Esports,. He placed in the top 4 for the North America Regional Overwatch Open. Gods finished his time on NRG in the first season of APEX, finishing with a disappointing result and missing the playoffs. Sometime after, he was a member of Cloud9 for several months, though their results were disappointing despite being a notorious team.
Cloud9 acquired a spot in the Overwatch League, eventually landing on the name "London Spitfire." During the fall of 2017, Gods left the team and became a free agent. Several months later, he was picked up to play for Gladiators Legion, the Los Angeles Gladiators academy team. The team made the playoffs twice during the three seasons of Contenders 2018 North America but never got further than that. Graeser left Gladiators Legion to look for new opportunities and quickly wound up on the Contenders team Second Wind only a month later. He would then spend a month with the team before joining Toronto Defiant’s academy team, the Montreal Rebellion, before moving up to their Overwatch League roster. Gods also competed for the United States during the 2016 Overwatch World Cup.
Graeser has become a household name in the world of Overwatch, and it will be interesting to see where he goes next in his career.
