Biography

Brandon "Seagull" Larned is an American Overwatch player and popular streamer, formerly a Team Fortress 2 player, currently playing for NRG eSports.

Seagull was a top player in Half-Life 2: Deathmatch. On April 20, 2008, he won the CAL Season 3 Final 2-0 over his opponent LukeGT421 on dm_lockdown_r3 with a score of 28-25. It was considered to be one of the highest level and most entertaining matches in the history of Half-Life 2: Deathmatch.

In Team Fortress 2, Seagull was considered a top-tier Soldier who played for Classic Mixup, a well-regarded TF2 team. His main issue with TF2 and the limited visibility of the game in esports was the fact that the game was created when balance wasn't a consideration by developers; the TF2 players were forced to balance the game themselves with arbitrary rulesets that separated the competitive community from the everyone else. He also believes the competitive scene's growth had been very restricted due to the lack of matchmaking capabilities that would allow the average player to easily jump into competitive play.

In transitioning to Overwatch, Seagull was excited to see a different playing fields with several unique heroes; placing heavy emphasis on how the different heroes synergize with each other, particularly with their ultimate abilities. He contrasts that with TF2 where the versatile classes were almost always the best in every situation.

On March 25, 2016, he joined Luminosity Gaming as part of the team's expansion into Overwatch. The team took 2nd place at the OG Invitational, the third major tournament after the game was released. He stayed there for approximately 4 months until his squad was replaced with a European line-up.

On August 3, 2016, NRG eSports signs Seagull and the players of Mixup. It was announced on Twitter with a tweet featuring Shaquille O’Neal dancing with the words "Play of the Game" overlayed.
