After a disappointing run in the Six Invitational 2021, two of DarkZero Esports’ longtime players- Skys and Mint- have stepped down from competitive Rainbow Six Siege.
Alexander “Skys” Magor announced his retirement yesterday on a Twitlonger post.
“This decision has not come easy and I’ve spent the last few months thinking about it & mentally it just feels to be the right time,” Skys stated. “I feel like I have lost myself as a person over the past couple months & with that have slowly started to not enjoy playing the game.”
Skys has been competing in Rainbow Six Siege for a very long time. He won a Six Invitational with Elevate in 2017, the first edition of SI when the professional scene was split between PC and Xbox. Later, he switched from Xbox to PC after console R6 Pro League got discontinued.
On the other end, Mint has also announced today that he will be retiring as a professional player.
Both Mint and Skys have played in this year’s Invitationals, where they got a joint-13th place finish. And both the players now feel that is time for new players to carry DarkZero forward.
While Skys haven’t announced any future plans as of yet, Mint will still continue with DarkZero Esports as a part of the coaching staff. This has also created two vacancies in DarkZero’s R6 roster, which they’ll look to fill before NAL restarts with stage 2.
