Rascal is the seventh player and third DPS to join the NRG roster, who are coming off of a second place finish in the BEAT Invitational and a title in the Pit Championship. He will be reuniting with former Kongdoo Panthera teammate Swon, who last played together in the 2016 Nexus Cup Grand Finals.

Prior to joining NRG, Rascal was picked up alongside his Kongdoo Panthera teammates by the London Spitfire for the Overwatch League. He wound up spending most of his time with the Spitfire on the bench, playing only six maps throughout the entirety of Stage 1.

He was then traded to the Dallas Fuel before the start of Stage 2, and while he saw an increase in playing time, he found little success with the struggling team. Near the beginning of Stage 3, the team made the collective decision to drop him, and due to this taking place after the signing period had closed, this unfortunately meant that he was out of the Overwatch League until its second season. He has not played for a team since then until now.

Rascal's debut with NRG likely won't be until the beginning of Contenders Season 2. Contenders North America begins July 3.
