I joined the G2 esports organization in February 2016, I was a player for a year and then transitioned to a coaching position. After thirteen months as a coach i decided to play again in June of this year. It was not something I had expected after ending my player career and it was not an easy decision.
I was driven by an urge to compete again and convinced this lineup had a future. Good team atmosphere has always been important to me, and I had the chance to play with four players I consider as friends. The role I had was different from what I was used to during the end of my career. It turned out to be too big of a task for me to catch up skill wise, on top of learning those new positions. Much to my disappointment it never really clicked for me and I can’t say I enjoyed the time i spent playing again.
The goals we had with this lineup were not reached and something had to be done. Part of the solution is to send me on the bench. I think it’s a fair move and agree with the team’s decision. I hope everything they are putting in place at the moment will bear fruits and I wish them the best of luck.
I’m therefore taking a break from competitive CS:GO and will now reflect on the past months. I’m allowing myself some time to figure out how to stay involved in the esport scene.
What’s next for me in the upcoming weeks ? I will first compete at the ESL pro league in Odense early December. It will be my last tournament as part of this roster and I intend to give my best.
The main news for you guys is that I will start streaming more frequently. It is something I briefly started doing this year and I truly enjoyed it.
I intend to start tomorrow so come hang out at https://www.twitch.tv/SmithZz !
