Daps set to leave Gen.G’s CS:GO lineup, uncertain about his future
CMD368 – Damian “daps” Steele is set to step down from his role as in-game leader for Gen.G the player has revealed. “Today another chapter of my career has ended,” the Canadian said to open up the announcement. daps went into details regarding his decision to step down and cited internal disagreements on how to move forward as a team in addition to the lack of LANs and the cancellation of the Major which he said was a main part of his decision to hold out on leaving over the last few months.
The 27-year-old, however, will keep playing for Gen.G until the organization finds a new fifth player. Daps has been playing for Gen.G since December 2019 when Gen.G bought him, autimatic, and Kenneth “koosta” Suen from Cloud9. The org completed its roster later that month with Sam “s0m” Oh from Envy and Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand from TYLOO.
As of today, @daps has stepped down from Gen.G’s CSGO roster.

“The reason for this decision is something I’ve been thinking about for a while now (about 3-4 months) and is a bi product of a lot of issues within the team including myself but the major was what was stopping me from leaving. There had been some in and out of game changes I wanted over the past 6 months that I thought would of made the team better but were not agreed upon by all,” daps said.
Daps wants to keep playing CS:GO, ideally as an in-game leader, but could end up transitioning into just a player or leaving the CS:GO scene. North America recently lost two of its best in-game leaders when nitr0 and Josh “steel” Nissan left Liquid and Chaos, respectively, to start a pro career in VALORANT with 100 Thieves.
