I'm always looking to improve with every scrim, open to any feedback and constructive criticism.
This isn't the end for me, i still have the passion to compete and love every minute of it.
Thank you @XL2 for everything.

3 years of competitive OW experience.
Willing to learn and improve, whether that be through receiving constructive criticism, grinding to learn new heroes, or supporting the team's needs.
I appreciate the opportunity that @XL2 has given me. Thank you.
The last time XL2 Academy was in the news was when DPS player Speedily joined as the team's eighth member last month. These three departures put the team's size at five players and three staff members.
XL2 Academy placed 5th-6th in the most recent Contenders season in the North America West region; they were defeated in the quarterfinal playoffs by eventual runner-up team ATL Academy.
The dates for the next Contenders season have not been announced yet, but Contenders Trials competition for North America is currently underway.
