He's calling it "a new beginning" on Twitter - we're calling it a great loss.

Even though he was fairly unimpressive in his last years as a CS professional, he is still one of the household names of the game. He might be the reason some of you, our readers, are even here.

VeryGames, EnVyUs, Vitality, DBL PONEY - the man has played on some seriously good teams through the years. Especially that last one. But unfortunately, his success in Counter-Strike was starting to fizzle out.

So who can blame him for jumping ship? Sure, he may have enough stacks already to not have to work ever again, but for some of these players competing is what it's all about.

And it's very clear from all the big names that have already switched and have built a succesful career in the other game that if playing to win is your biggest motivation, making the move is... the right move.

So Nathan, we wish you the best of luck in VALORANT, the game that you win, not with abilities, but by getting kills. Hehe.
