Το ότι θα φύγει από την επαγγελματική σκηνή του League of Legends ανακοίνωσε επίσημα πριν από λίγο ο Benny των XDG.
Την ανακοίνωση αποχώρησής του μπορείτε να τη διαβάσετε παρακάτω:
Today I will be announcing my retirement from professional League of Legends. First and foremost, I would like to thank Riot Games, Inc. for this once in a lifetime opportunity. The past year and a half has been filled with many ups and downs, but at the end of it all, I have absolutely no regrets for taking on this venture in my life.
I had originally wanted to retire after one more go at worlds, but that plan was cut short seeing that we were unsuccessful in qualifying for this coming summer split. Am I disappointed? Yes, but what I felt worse about was disappointing the fans who believed in us. Despite all of the hardships the team has faced, we have grown close together like a family. And although we are going our separate ways, I know that they will be successful in whatever they do.
My plan is to return to UC Berkeley to continue my education and obtain my degree. At the same time, I would like to stay relative to the scene in some way, whether it is by doing analyst work or by streaming if cruddy Comcast allows it. :^)
To everyone who wanted to see CLG Benny happen: Thank you, but no thank you. I do not expect an offer from CLG to try out for the spot. Had I or the team played as well as we did during the last summer split, it could have been a possibility. I feel that there are more valuable candidates for that position and I wish them good luck.
To conclude, it is unfortunate that we were relegated, but LMQ played phenomenally and definitely deserve their spot. Even though I am not planning to return to the LCS, I promise not to completely disappear from the scene. With this said, thank you to all of the fans for the support and faith that you had in me and the team.
Ανάμεσα στα άλλα που γράφει δηλώνει πως το σκεφτότανε να φύγει νωρίτερα αλλά μετά από συννενόηση με την ομάδα αποφάσισε να μείνει λίγο περισσότερο. Δήλωσε, ωστόσο, πως δε θα εξαφανιστεί τελείως από τη σκηνή.
Του ευχόμαστε ο,τι καλύτερο στην πορεία του από εδώ και πέρα!
