Dazed was one of the original five members from the ex-IBP team to be banned from playing CSGO competitively. The extended period of the ban resulted in them being ignored and not considered for several teams. While recently there has been an upswing in the way the players have been treated, with ESL, Dreamhack unbanning them from their events; Valve stays consistent in their ban decision against these players.
Dazed has decided to step down from playing CSGO competitively. He simply does not have the drive to play the game anymore. He might still be associated in some other aspects, but he will not be playing competitively.
