Viol2t played for O2 Ardeont in Contenders Seasons 1 and 2, helping the team finish as runner-ups in Contenders Season 1. His team failed to match that performance in Season 2 as they were eliminated in the quarterfinals. He is the first player from O2 Ardeont to make it to an Overwatch League team.
The Shock began the offseason with the releases of iddqd, Nomy and dhaK. The organization later traded Danteh for smurf. Most recently, it promoted Rascal up from its academy roster. Viol2t is the organization's first free agent signing of the offseason.
Viol2t is the 11th player to join the Shock roster, leaving just one open spot remaining on the team's lineup. They currently have the largest roster in the Overwatch League.
