This may come as a surprise to many of you and maybe not so much to a few, but my time with Overwatch has come to an end. I’ve officially retired from Overwatch.
It has been a wild ride, hasn’t it?
It is surreal to think about all the moments I got to spend doing something that I truly loved and was able to share that with all of the fans. Being able to participate in the OWL is a milestone in my life that will live with me forever. I will never forget all the adoring fans cheering us on through thick and thin, always giving the support I needed to keep my head held high and focus forward. I cannot thank you all enough, and I hope you all support me in my next step in life.
Many of you left memories with me, that I will cherish. From playing with my boys on Legion to winning the Overwatch World Cup, these have been some of the best years of my life.
Blizzard, ultimately you’ve created the experience to build all my amazing memories inside. The OWL is what it all revolved around for me to meet so many amazing people from fans to players to families around the world.
Mark, I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to join the Justice and have the opportunity to meet the people that left an impact on my life. As an Owner, you provided all the players and staff with amazing living conditions and an extremely nice facility for the team to grow in. One thing I wish I did better on my end was to get to know you more as Mark rather than just an Owner. Our short time talking to each other really opened my eyes to how much we could’ve bonded.
Stratus, you’ve been my best friend in this team since the very beginning. We did almost everything together, whether that be working together in the game or vibing outside of scrims and watching anime and chatting. I’m extremely happy that we got to meet up and bond over these times because everything was not really peachy let’s be honest. You’re a very talented player that is looked over many times, people don’t realize how good of a teammate and player you really are. Your mentality is rock solid and you’re always the energy/bright light for the team when things get down or gloomy. Not having my little Ethan to live with me anymore is going to hurt, but anime nights need to live on over discord!!
Elli, my little tik tok fiend. Bro u nasty with the off tank and you are a really smarty boy. (onlyin overwatch) We share a pretty similar sense of humor and we got along right off the bat. I really wanted to see the Swede duo in action and in full force, but it is unfortunate that it never came to that. (lullsish i miss you ;_;) u also nasty wit the valorant too, keep memeing with me my eu boy and lets keep gaming.
Ark, you're an extremely hard worker and you definitely take the extra steps to make sure that your gameplay is up to par to your standards. I feel like we struggled to become really good friends, but I really think it was because of the situation that we were in. Outside of Overwatch I imagine us being troll and having lots of fun. keep on fighting bub~
Lynn, my long time friend. What a bumpy ride we got ourselves into eh? The ambition, hard work, and dedication that you have is unrivaled when it comes to getting stuff done. You’re quick on your feet and really looked out for the players well being. Also come to think of it, this is your 2nd time in one of my twitlongers lol loser!!! Lets get some hotpot in the future with the gang
Pre, you are the mfkin homie. You are actually one of the most chill people I’ve spoken to in my entire life. On top of that, we shared so many things including our sense of humor and mindset. You really helped me get through a lot of shit in the past and helped me form myself into a better person throughout last season and this season. Lets keep in touch :D
Supreme, my hubby you helped me through lots of things and gave me a lot of perspective when things were confusing. You’re very mature and we could see eye to eye on many things. You do an amazing job at keeping players happy and helping them steer the right path. I hope everything works out for you in the future and you keep FIGHTING FIGHTING~
So, what is next for me?
I’m leaving to pursue a game that really hit home for me. Valorant. When I was younger, I had the ambition to go pro in Counter Strike. Seeing Valorant as a hybrid between CS and OW, this looks like the game that was made for me. I’ll be pursuing all opportunities available to me and will start up hitting the grind. A long side that grind, I’ll begin streaming regularly and begin looking for editors/artists to work with for the future. I’d like to start pushing out videos and making my twitch channel really nice with amazing art and emotes :D Hopefully one day you will see me on stage again for Valorant. (Please stay safe during this time<3)
There’s so much that I can take from my experience in Overwatch to build upon my future and I am super grateful for that. Thank you to everyone who has supported me in my Overwatch days, I hope you all continue to support me in my new journey. Thank you Thank you Thank you I love you all <3
There is a lot to cover and it's difficult to write out everything in a twitlonger. I’ll be streaming here → https://www.twitch.tv/corey moving forward. Feel free to ask me any questions and hangout in chat :D
