pyth quits CS:GO scene

Jakob "pyth" Mourojärvi announced in his Twitter the decision to end his career as a professional player in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The 26-year-old Swede intends to try his hand in VALORANT.

For 9 years now I've been competing in CS:GO and today my career as a professional CS player officially comes to an end.

Grinding 12 hours a day this game has made me to who I am today, I've met so much people that are so important to me in my life, I'm so thankful for everything this game has done for me and creating memories that I will never forget for the rest of my life.

These past years (after NiP) I've felt that I have never managed to get back to the level I once was on, I never found a place where I felt I belonged and it has been hard to find the right groove with different projects, I have learned so much from all the mistakes but also taken with me the good stuff.

Moving forward, I have found a new spark in the new game Valorant which I'm addicted to, this is a fresh start for me and I enjoy it very much and grind atleast 12 hours a day with the goal to become one of the best players in the best team.

Every day I come in with a new mindset to improve and I wanna learn every little "trick" to be the best version of myself, I'm taking me with all my CS knowledge but I'm also learning new stuff in the game which makes it so much fun, also meeting new people from all other games around the world is fun, I got to meet so much new people that are awesome coming from games like Overwatch, Apex, Fortnite etc!

Thank you every one for your support during my CS days, it has been a lot of ups & downs supporting me, but I hope you all enjoyed it.
But also big thanks to the ex-NiP currently Dignitas boys that gave me the chance to play with them and compete with them among the best, I'm so thankful for the opportunity so big thanks to (Xizt, Get_RiGhT, Friberg & f0rest! <3)

Announcement about my future will come shortly in the upcoming weeks, I have a few things going on that I can't reveal yet but I'm eager to start with a team of 5 and begin practice.

Get ready for bunch of new stuff and follow my twitch channel to follow my career, I will stream a lot of Valorant in the upcoming weeks once I have a schedule set.

Sincerely, Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi
