Boston Uprising Boston Uprising OWL Rank #20 main support player Swimmer has announced his retirement. He said he has retired to move away from competition for a bit and focus on himself and streaming.
He opened up the possibility that he could return to competing later and thus return to the Overwatch League.
Swimmer played in the Uprising's first three matches of the season, but was benched immediately after the team signed another main support player in Halo. Halo has played in Swimmer's place for the last four matches.
Swimmer referenced his life of competition in his retirement post. He said he chose the name Swimmer as a reference to his Olympic dreams.
His retirement leaves the Uprising with just seven players on their roster. The league minimum is eight. They'll need to sign a new player to meet that minimum. They only have six available as Axxiom took a leave of absence in March.
The Uprising's next match is this weekend against the Toronto Defiant.
