As well as the first season of Overwatch League has been going for Blizzard, in terms of viewership and engagement, it also feels like more and more of the League's players are getting into trouble with each passing week. The latest incident doesn't involve getting into trouble on-stream, but it is very serious and has prompted the Boston Uprising into immediate action.

Jonathan "DreamKazper" Sanchez was accused over the weekend by a 14-year-old girl of inappropriate communication, which included Sanchez soliciting sexually explicit images from her across various social media channels. The accuser uploaded her story onto a Google Doc and both the Overwatch League and Boston Uprising responded by promptly suspending Sanchez indefinitely. On Monday, according to Dot Esports, the Boston Uprising outright terminated Sanchez from his contract.

The contract termination comes in the wake of a second woman coming forward and citing similar accusations against Sanchez. According to the aforementioned Dot Esports report, the woman stated that Sanchez purchased her a plane ticket to visit him in California and demanded nude photographs when she canceled the trip.

The Boston Uprising has not commented further on this matter.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
