Erik "DoA" Lonnquist was previously a League of Legends caster for OnGameNet. He is currently a caster for the Overwatch League.

Biography

He became involved in eSports after becoming a prominent StarCraft II caster for GomTV - specifically, GSL Code A (the Challenger Series counterpart to the LCS-equivalent Code S) with League caster Noah Kalb (Moletrap) and the GSTL team competition with current SpoTV English head Wolf Schroeder. He later joined OnGameNet before being rendered unable to travel to South Korea for health reasons, but later returned to cast League of Legends for the same organization after he underwent surgery to remove his gallbladder. [1]

Starting in 2013, he was the lead English play-by-play commentator for OGN Champions (later the LCK from 2015 onwards) alongside MonteCristo. Apart from League of Legends, he had also cast OGN's Korean Hearthstone tournaments alongside PapaSmithy. In 2016, he began casting Overwatch with MonteCristo as OGN hosted APEX Season 1, the first premier Overwatch tournament in Korea, and the two of them were invited by Blizzard to join a casting team including Deman for the Overwatch World Cup held before and during BlizzCon 2016. After this, both MonteCristo and DoA were hired by Blizzard to cast Overwatch full time in NA. PapaSmithy and Achilios were promoted as lead commentators for LCK after their departure.
