According to his Nightbot, ‘Dappur got his name from an Instagram page about cars. He changed dapper to a “U” because that’s what was available on PSN.’ The page was called ‘DapperFam.’
When he was small, Dappur played a lot of Need for Speed: Underground on his GameCube. He got his interest in cars and racing-themed video games from his dad who enjoys collecting them and street racing them.
His parents bought him many video games over the years, and he became increasingly competitive in them as he got older. When he did eventually decide to make competitive gaming into a career, his parents, but especially his father were very supportive of his decision.
He discovered Rocket League (RL) when he and Datto were playing Destiny together and Datto mentioned it to him. It sounded interesting to him, so he watched the trailer and then bought it as soon as it released. He originally started playing RL on his PlayStation 4 and was soon addicted to it but decided to switch to PC in May 2016. He has remained on the PC with a PS4 controller since then.
He moved to Phoenix, AZ in 2017 in order to study Computer Science at Grand Canyon University as it is important to his mm that he get a degree before attempting a fulltime career in gaming. So, he continues to be a part-time streamer.
As he quickly gained skills and rankings in RL, he realized that it might be possible for him t attempt going pro with it. He therefore spent a lot of his free time grinding towards that goal. As he reached the higher ranks, he met Timi, Mijo and JKnaps and they started playing with and against each other. In January 2016, their hard work paid off and they were signed with Selfless Gaming. This was towards the end of S1.
In July 2017, Selfless Gaming closed down and their roster, minus JKnaps, was picked up by Detroit Renegades. Dappur then moved between various teams including CLG in March 2018, but only remained with them until August 2018 when CLG decided to withdraw from participating in RL. He is currently in Afterthough with Satthew and Shock.
He generally streams without a facecam.
Dappur doesn’t have a set schedule due to his college commitments, but he tends to stream for between 2 – 4 hours per day.
