You may have seen the rumours fly around, I can now confirm that it’s true, I am moving away from playing at this time. Last year we travelled 36 weeks of the year and by July I was struggling to keep up with the intense travelling schedule, coming into this year we wanted to cut that down to 22 weeks (an extra 2.5 months at home). However the accelerated professionalization of the CS:GO scene, through ESL pro tour & Blast Premier arrivals, changed the ecosystem and we could no longer get down to anywhere near the amount of weeks discussed earlier. That being said, the only logical course of action for me after the year that had just passed was to withdraw myself from the team before becoming too tired to put the necessary work in, although I did offer to stay on until they found a suitable replacement they chose to look for someone now and that is their decision to make, I wish them the best of luck and would like nothing more than for them to do well.
I would like to thank Dan, Mathieu, Cédric, Richard, manager Matthieu, assistant coach Mathieu & a huge thank you to Rémy who had a massive part to play in everything that went right during my time in the team.
The last part of this is just a massive thank you to Vitality, who have done nothing but try to put us in the best conditions possible to perform, brought in countless members of staff and invested heavily into the team, as you may have seen from my last Twitter post a few days ago I have nothing but love for this organisation and I wish them the best going forward, with everything they do.
I’m not sure what the future will hold for me, but I would like to thank everyone who has supported me/us over the years and I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride as much as I have.
