FunnyAstro emerged in 2018 as a main support player for Those Guys. He and his teammates were picked up wholesale as the academy team for the British Hurricane before Contenders Season 1 2018. During that season, he split playtime with fellow Hurricane main support CrusaDe. They won Contenders Season 1 Europe 2018 and defeated Fusion University in the following Atlantic Showdown.
FunnyAstro took on a greater share of playtime in Contenders Season 2 and Trials Season 3 as CrusaDe was first benched and then released from the team.
After Trials Season 3, FunnyAstro was among several players who parted ways with the Hurricane.
It was rumored at the time he was joining the Boston Uprising, but was then released following a potential suspension he faced for boosting. Neither the Uprising, Overwatch League, or FunnyAstro himself officially confirmed or commented on these rumors during that time.
It is unclear if FunnyAstro will have a suspension to face when he joins the Reign. At the time of publishing, the Overwatch League discipline tracker has not been updated since December 21.
FunnyAstro is the second main support of the Reign roster, joining Masaa. He is also the second main support on the ATL Academy roster, joining Ajax.
ATL Academy still lack a dedicated flex support player. DPS player saucy has played flex support for the Reign since Dogman's promotion to the Overwatch League.
