The end of the road :(
I never make twitlongers but I will for this just because it seems appropriate.
I first want to say thank you to anyone who has followed and supported me through my time playing smite competitively and even before I started playing competitively. The love and support from the smite community in general has also been strong and honestly it has helped me with not giving up in the past and getting better at the game and pushing forward etc.
Now I know most people are gonna say “Why would you quit now? Seems pretty stupid with all of this SPL talk and what not”. But the reality is I cannot play in the SPL without quitting my current IRL job and I’m just not willing to part ways with a bright future with my job for something that isn’t guaranteed. I’ll be honest having to say no to something I’ve wanted to do for so long has been the hardest thing to accept. I think about it everyday constantly and it is harder some days and easier others. But I do know that I’m making the right decision even though it may not feel like it sometimes.
“Then why not just play SML?” Well as stated above, the constant thought of not being able to play in the SPL is hard enough... and playing in the SML will just be an added reminder to that in my opinion. Maybe I'll change my mind like I feel like I always do but I'm just an impasse with smite at this point.
Lastly, I just want to say that I love my teammates. This past year has been one of the most fun years I've had playing Smite. Even though they raise my blood pressure sometimes, I wouldn't want any other teammates to go into LAN and share something so fun and enjoyable.
Much love to everyone and good luck out there! <3
