I am Alexander “Cristal1337” Nathan, founder/CEO of Permastunned Gaming.
Always a gamer at heart, I was born with a rare muscular myopathy that limited my options for more physical sports. Although most of my competitive experience comes from playing football, I’ve spent a lifetime playing video games.
It had always bothered me that people with disabilities were underrepresented in the professional Dota2 scene. So in 2019 I started recruiting people with disabilities to form the first ever all-disabled Dota2 squad.
Fast forward two years and this venture has spiraled out of control in the best way possible. People from all sorts of games joined the cause, making Permastunned Gaming the largest esports organisation by people with disabilities, for people with disabilities.
