The last 12 years of my life have been given to call of duty competitive. I have been playing Call of Duty since 2006. I have been going to events since 2010. I'm 24 so the last half of my life has been dedicated primarily to cod. This last month I've had a lot of time to reflect and think about my future and place in esports. I love this community. I won't be going anywhere however I am not going to be competing for the remainder of this game.
I do realize that when most people do this, it is the end of their professional career. So I definitely have that in mind and I am not sure if I will be competing in Black Ops 4 either. It is just a smarter move for the position I am in. When you're on a pro team, you get salary. When you get released you no longer get that salary or anything going forward. Which means if I were to make a top "non-league" team, our salary on an organization would be very low by previous standards and the quality of players available is very average. Which means performance would be reliant on a miracle and practice is minimal with all the teams at pro-league. This sucks because I feel like I am capable to compete at the top level and have shown that this year. However in my position, it would be extremely difficult to rise back to the top. I have thought this through, talked about it with my friends and come to this decision. Honestly, this was the hardest decision of my entire life. I just want to say thank you all very much for the support you've given me in this community. I will obviously will still be around, I just may not have a controller in my hand. :( I have something planned and I will have more information on that soon! Until then, my full time career will be content creation so check out my streams if you haven't!
