emagine quits the scene

ORDER captain Chris "emagine" Rowlands announced his retiremenet from the competetive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

The time has come for me to hang up the mouse - It’s been a wild ride and I’m forever grateful to everyone who’s been involved with my journey. It has become increasingly difficult, however, to balance my personal responsibilities in addition to playing full time.

Firstly, I want to thank the many talented teammates I’ve had the pleasure of playing with over the years - the experiences shared with you all are things I will always remember.

Thanks also to all those who followed me during my time playing - I have had an incredible experience and met so many amazing people along the way.

Finally, thanks to all the organisations and management staff that have supported me and the rosters I’ve been involved with. A special acknowledgement to the brilliant people involved with ORDER - Naith, Chris, Jake, Gez and Adrian. They have created something very special for OCE CSGO.

I would especially like to thank my current roster; I think this will be a very strong year for them and look forward to watching them succeed.

Until next time

Chris "emagine" Rowlands started his career as a professional player in 2014. He played for Australian clubs Immunity, Winterfox and Kings until the end of 2017 and from January 2018 until today he represented ORDER, where he played as in-game leader.
