Quitting Competitive CS

Effective immediately I've left the TRIDENT CS:GO Team & have retired from competitive CS, unfortunately this was a decision that had to be made in order for me to progress with my life in the direction that I want to go, not that it makes it any easier. For the past 3-4 years I've pretty much dedicated my life to CS:GO, I'd Death match several hours per day & literally become nocturnal because I'd stay up to 11am watching EU/NA CS, sleeping for X amount of hours before AU cs started back up. Recent events have made me had to try and split my time between playing CS and having a full time job all at the same time of moving to a completely different state, trying to organise buying a comp/getting stable internet and a whole lot of shit that didn't involve the game. I would have liked to continue playing but I have no choice but to stop, much to my dissapointment.

I'd like to thank everyone that I've become mates with through the game & my past team mates, honestly have such good memories and moments from all teams, some that come to mind were winning CGM Season 9 & somehow qualifying to go to China with a mix team because of a fucked up bracket, so many memories that will last with me forever & makes putting in so many hours worth it.

Would also like to thank TRIDENT for giving me an opportunity to come and IGL the team, I never felt so confident and invested into a team & it was a really exciting feeling to be apart of it. I really hope they can get out of this hole I have put them in & progress even further as a team, some really strong players on this team, will be watching closely to see where they end up in a year or so.

Was hoping it wouldn't come to this because I still love the game, competing, being apart of a team etc. etc. so really hurts that I won't be apart of that anymore, but gotta do what's best for me in the long run.
