Today we sadly announce the retirement of Joon-seong "Asher" Choi.— Toronto Defiant (@TorontoDefiant) May 29, 2019

Asher began his career playing for CONBOX CONBOX Inactive in APEX Seasons 3 and 4, earning a top eight finish with his teammates in both seasons. He was then signed to the Los Angeles Gladiators for the inaugural season of the Overwatch League.
He played in 28 of the Gladiators' first 30 matches, but only played in a single Stage 4 match and no playoff matches.
Asher left the Gladiators and joined the Defiant in the offseason to be a part of their original eight-player roster. However, he only played in two maps for the Defiant: both in the first week of Stage 2 in a match against the Washington Justice.
Their next match is June 7 against the Paris Eternal.
