Retiring from competitive OW— Bertlog (@BertlogOCE) May 14, 2019
Bertlog has been the main support of the Drop Bears since Season 1 of 2018, and has been with the team in their four finals appearances and three championship titles. After playing with the team for over a year, Bertlog hung up his roller skates and caduceus staff for good, citing a lack of enjoyment in competing.

Previously, he played for Blank Esports in the Pacific region, where he finished runners-up in Season 1 of Contenders Pacific 2018. He also represented Australia in the 2018 edition of the World Cup. ckm will be retiring from Overwatch to focus more on University.
