Following the end of his contract with Team Vitality today, Goga has officially announced his retirement from the Rainbow Six Siege esports scene.

In a Twitlonger post, Daniel “Goga” Mazorra Romero said his last goodbyes as he officially stepped down as a pro-player today.

Alongside Fabian and Hungry, Goga was benched by Team Vitality in a surprising roster move just before the start of the EUL 2021 season. Goga was shifted to the inactive roster, and his contract with Vitality finally ended today.

When he was benched, Goga stated that he was feeling stress-free after a long time and high doubted seeing himself return to pro-play. And now he stands correct, as he marks his departure from competitive Siege.

During the time while I was benched I’ve been trying to get back the motivation I was lacking to play the game but unfortunately, I didn’t. I don’t enjoy the game anymore the way I used to 1-2 years ago. Back then I could spend the whole day playing ranked and have fun, now it’s just impossible for me.


Goga: One of the best support player in Siege

Similar to his G2 Esports teammate Pengu, Goga is one of the most decorated players in Rainbow Six Siege history, having won three Pro League titles, one international Six Major, and two Six Invitationals while on the PENTA and G2 Esports rosters. He was a crucial member of Siege’s most dominating roster, which slowly crumbled as G2 Esports dropped Goga after the Raleigh Major.

Goga’s retirement now also cancels out any rumour of him joining Fabian in the new Delta Project roster.

Goga has shared that he will now solely concentrate on streaming mainly Rainbow Six Siege, but also other games like Apex Legends or Valorant. You’ll be able to catch him live at twitch.tv/gogaqt.
