David "Allied" Hance was an American SMITE player and caster for Hi-Rez studios.


Allied was born in New York City, and moved to upstate New York when he was young. He currently lives in Suwanee, Georgia. He started playing video games at age 8 when his stepfather bought him a Nintendo 64 and his first video game, Donkey Kong 64. He played Starcraft II as well as most Smash Bros games competitively. When he quit Starcraft II, dmbrandon convinced him to start playing SMITE.

Allied has been on numerous different teams during his career, including teams like Root Gaming, SNIPE Gaming, COGnitive Gaming and compLexity. Before joining SNIPE in mid 2013, Allied played the support role during his competitive time. However when making the switch to a new team, he chose to switch to hunter, which is now his current role. As being one of the veterans of competitive SMITE, Allied has taken part in a vast number of different tournaments including PAX East, PAX Prime, the SMITE Launch Tournament and more.

During Season 2 compLexity qualified for the SMITE Pro League in convincing fashion. However just days later, the team decided to drop their current sponsor and start a new team which would be called Melior Morior. The team would then rename to AFK Gaming.
