Today, I am no longer a StarCraft II pro gamer.
This has been one of the toughest decisions I've ever had to make,
and I've taken a lot of time to think about it to make sure it is the right one.
Recently, I started playing DotA again, and I realized that right now this is the game
that I can play for almost unlimited amount of hours with no breaks. Whereas StarCraft II has become to me, a game that I have to force myself really hard to play.
It's not that I've lost all my passion for StarCraft. It really isn't.
I still love the game, the community and the tournaments.
The problem is, if I don't practice, I can't do well enough in tournaments to satisfy myself.
I get really depressed and it's just not a healthy situation.
I used to be able to play 6-10 hours a day easily, in WoL when I was incredibly motivated, and it showed in my results. Even though I never won a big tournament, I had some really solid finishes at the biggest tournaments.
I'm sorry to all the fans who still cheer for me in SC2, I hope you will continue through
my transition into DotA 2, and know that I really really appreciate you all! <3
I will play my WCS matches while I'm still part of the system, but if/once I'm knocked completely out (of Challenger) you probably won't be seeing me play StarCraft II for quite some time.
I will try out the game when Legacy of the Void comes out, but I can't promise I will be back.
