As we've mentioned, Jayne started his Overwatch career as an educational content creator on both YouTube and Twitch. He focused on helping low ELO players improve their game sense and mechanics, giving tips and coaching to amateur teams, and more.
Eventually, he was selected to become head coach for Team Canada ahead of the 2018 Overwatch World Cup, where the squad earned a respectable third place. His antics with the team landed him a job with the Dallas Fuel.
Sadly, amid mental health issues consequence of burnout and lack of results from the team, Jayne decided to part ways with the Fuel and retire from coaching in 2019. Since then, he sporadically continued to make content until mid-2021, the last time his YouTube channel was updated.
From everyone at GINX, we hope Jayne can return to being with his family and is found safe and sound.
