CS veteran from Slovakia, Patrik "Zero" Žúdel, has decided to leave the competitive scene.
"I have lost interest in competing and as a result, I am no longer driven to improve my skills in CS. I am not interested in pursuing something solely for money. I believe it's the appropriate moment for me to explore other passions that I have," he noted on Twitter.
He plans to dedicate some time to self-study and promises to stream some of it, as he did in the past.
He also thanked organizations, athletes and coaches he collaborated with during his career.
24-year-old Zero has been playing with Encardy, nEophyte, Revolte!, HellRaisers, GameAgents, GamerLegion, SINNERS and other organizations since 2013.
With HellRaisers, he won the Copenhagen Games in 2016 and also ranked first at a number of significant qualifiers in 2016-2017.
