Well, I have not posted here in a long time, so I wanted to bring you this news.
As some of you may already know, although it never became official, we decided together with Isurus Gaming organization that the best was for us to part ways again so I won't be playing under their name anymore.
I want to once again thank Isurus Gaming and Facundo Calabro (Isurus Gaming Founder & CEO) for all their support during this almost one year and a half in which we worked together, and as every time I leave Isurus, I feel like I am at a major turning point in my career again.
On the other hand I also want to say that we are not going to keep the roster for the next Contenders and many changes are coming, so I wanted to take this opportunity to thank also my teammates from this last season, that even though we did not meet our main goal, I'm leaving with peace of mind that we worked like nobody else trying to reach the first place (kaizak, BEAST, Jhein, Máximo and Ludwig).
Personally I feel that it was the first time in my career that I really gave my 100% in the whole season. I was able to fulfill roles that until now I couldn't encourage myself to do due to lack of experience and character, and I have no doubts that this is my best version even though I'm beginning to feel a bit of decadence in my mechanical skills.
When we lost against Lowkey it broke my soul. It was a moment where I felt an immense weakness and I could not do more than throw myself in the shower, crying to purify my frustration. I want that memory to be with me forever to motivate me to always give 100% and never again feel that I could have given more, or that I lose because I do not strive hard enough (something that always happened to me throughout my career).
I think this post became too personal, so yeah, I just wanted to tell you that. I do not know when my new team will be announced but I'll probably post it here. Cheers!
Edit: I made the post so fast that I forgot to thank our technical staff, Unreal and Darkzero!
