montreal rebellion being released and what it means for me

Recently received news that we were being released due to fighting costs with the ongoing COVID crisis. With this news, I've decided I want to take a break from Overwatch. This isn't to say I don't enjoy the game anymore, far from it. I love Overwatch - but the current state of tier 2 plus covid and academies pulling out, it doesn't feel like there's much left for me here right now. I've put my heart and soul into this game, and worked especially hard in the last year to get to where I wanted to be, and I didn't make it. I don't know if I have it in me to keep grinding in a tier 2 scene without at least academy teams.

If there were any opportunities still available in Overwatch, either as a player or coach, I would of course jump at them, because I do still love this game, but with how unlucky this last 6 months has felt for me and with it looking like everyone is making cuts rather than signings, I'm just not sure there's a reason to still be here right now.

With all this being said, I'm obviously a free agent now. I'm open to all kinds of offers in or out of Overwatch and I'll be streaming VALORANT all day for now and seeing if I enjoy the game. I've been streaming every day this year so far and I expect to continue with longer streams now that I don't have obligations outside of that.
