16 y.o. Lynn Vision player may leave the pro scene after sensational performance at BLAST
Chinese player Lizhi "Starry" Ye, who currently plays for Lynn Vision, was forced to put his professional career on hold due to restrictions imposed by the Chinese government on underage gamers. The 16-year-old esports athlete shared that on his social media.
Starry may retire from the professional scene at the peak of his fame, which he earned thanks to the sensational performance at BLAST Premier Showdown 2021. Lynn Vision, which is placed only 117th in the current HLTV.org ranking, managed to grab one map from G2, and the player himself clutched a round against five opponents, which suddenly became one of the most discussed topics in the CS:GO community.
In his post, Starry described the moment as "the perfect ending" and also expressed regret that this match was likely to be the last one for the next two years.
It should be reminded that on August 30, the new restrictions for gamers in China were announced. In particular, individuals under the age of 18 can now use a computer for video games only from 20:00 to 21:00 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as well as on holidays. Compliance with the rules must be controlled by publishers of games, which use real passport data to register their users.
