today, i sent in my resignation letter
I made a very difficult decision this week and i'm here to share it with all of you.
For a while now, i've been feeling burnt out. Setting up Misfits to grow into a top multi-game franchise was no easy task, and running all gaming operations across the board was taking a toll on me. In a way, our trip to Korea where i bootcamped with both the LoL and Overwatch team, was a mixed experience for me. On one hand, it reminded me of everything i enjoy about the industry, connecting even better with the players, et cetera. On the other hand, it also made me notice everything i've been missing in the world.
I spent all my life between Europe and the Middle East; so exploring Asia awoke a sense of adventure in me. This isn't the stage in my life where i want to settle down for a routine life just yet. I'm young, i want to live a little. Coming off the back of 7 years of full time work, i've earned my right to a vacation and a more relaxing work environment. So, when my work visa appointment at the German embassy got delayed; i took the opportunity to talk things through with Ben, who was very understanding.
For that reason, I am resigning from Misfits and will be pursuing a nice fucking holiday, followed by an opportunity outside esports. I don't know if this is the end, i can't predict the future, but you can always catch me on Twitter.
