Canaan "Shrugger" Carman was an American competitive Team Fortress 2 player who mained Scout. He is most well known for playing on the teams eLevate, Ascent and RONIN in ESEA-Invite from Season 18 to Season 22, as well as attending and placing 3rd at Insomnia49 with High Rollers Gaming. He has attended 4 ESEA LANs. Shrugger announced his retirement from TF2 in a forum post in 2016, citing Overwatch as his reason for leaving.


Banned From eHarmony[edit]

Shrugger's first ESEA team was Banned From eHarmony in Season 9 Open. The team did reasonably well, going 11-5 and 2-2 in playoffs. The roster moved up to IM for Season 10 but after a disappointing 5-11 season Shrugger left the team and moved on to Invite.

Mihaly's Flow[edit]

Shrugger's first season of Invite was S11, where played Scout for Mihaly's Flow alongside Ruwin. Mihaly's Flow made it to LAN as 1st seed but ended up finishing in 4th place.

Pinball Wizards[edit]

Shrugger played Scout for Pinball Wizards in Season 12 with squid as his Scout partner. The team did not perform well, going 3-13, last in invite (above Mighty Ducks who died halfway through the season).


Shrugger was cherry-picked out of Pinball Wizards and picked up by bp in Season 13. bp ended the regular season with a perfect record. Before going to LAN, the team was picked up by a sponsor, High Rollers Gaming.

High Rollers Gaming[edit]

The newly sponsored team went on to place 1st overall in Season 13. Shrugger continued to play Scout for High Rollers Gaming in Season 14, in which they once again had a perfect season and placed 1st overall. After winning Season 14, Shrugger and High Rollers Gaming went to i49 in Telford, England with the community's donation of $11,000 USD. High Rollers Gaming placed 3rd at i49.


The team was picked up by server community iT after i49. iT had a perfect regular season in Season 15, however they placed 2nd overall after a loss to Classic Mixup in the grand finals.
