Gaimin Gladiators midlaner Quinn “Quinn” Callahan recently talked about Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf, who had been at the receiving end of harsh hate.
He noted that the player does not deserve being harassed, seeing what the player had achieved in his competitive career so far.
Quinn also reminded his viewers that ATF is still young, saying that his behavior in the game does not reflect the person in real life.

Quinn “Quinn” Callahan recently talked about current Nigma Galaxy carry player Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf’s behavior as a player during a livestream. As of late, ATF has been at the receiving end of harsh criticism with the player being constantly bullied and harassed for his lackluster performances as well as a bit of toxic behavior throughout the regional Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) league.

The Gaimin Gladiators midlaner opened up about the issue, saying that the Jordanian carry player should not be subjected to harassment as it could affect the young player’s mentality.

“He’s not toxic at all” - Quinn on defending ATF

During a livestream, Quinn became the latest professional player to have come to the defense of ATF. While many were understandably frustrated with ATF’s performances as a carry throughout the DPC, others simply went too far by harassing him.

He started off by calling out those who had been harassing the young Jordanian carry, saying that those people are “cringe” while also pointing out that ATF is not toxic in public matches.  “I think people who dogpile hate on Ammar are….like giga cringe. Guy is like 17 and has not done anything toxic . He’s not toxic in pubs at all actually. He is just like a dude, he is just a child. Not even toxic,” he said.

Additionally, Quinn further defended ATF by saying that most people are likely to be jealous of the latter, saying that ATF had proved himself by winning a Major as well as other respectable finishes in third-party tournaments.

“Like, he won a Major [with OG] and a really big third-party event. Take a chill pill. People who hate Ammar are most likely jealous or something,” he added.

He then went on to elaborate his point, saying that people are too quick to judge on the player’s behavior in the game when Quinn admits that he is way more toxic than the 17-year old player. “Dude, Ammar is not toxic. I don’t know what crack you are smoking but he is not toxic. I’m way more toxic than Ammar,” he added.

While ATF is expected to remain with Nigma Galaxy for the upcoming Spring Tour, he was recently seen practicing offlane heroes in pubs.
