League of Legends LCK bot lane superstar Kim “PraY” Jong-in has announced his retirement from eSports, stating on his personal stream that he is “not confident enough to do well.”
The 25-year-old Korean has had a distinguished career, having won Champions Korea on with three different teams, and had previously stated back in December that he wished to take a break from competitive gaming by sidelining himself for the 2019 League Champions Korea Spring Split. He had also revealed that he was “looking into a lot of different teams in many countries” in late 2018, following the termination of his contract with Kingzone DragonX.
Inven Global offered a translation from a stream on AfreecaTV, in which PraY revealed: “”I wanted to take some rest. I’m willing to be unemployed. Well, as long as a team takes me while I’m sleeping … So, am I retiring? Well, let’s see you guys in summer.” The statement revealed that he is looking to take some time off, though did not reveal that he was retiring in as many words. Whatever lies ahead for PraY, we wish him the best of luck, and it looks like we will know more about the situation over the course of this Summer.
