Chris "emagine" Rowlands has announced his retirement from competitive CS:GO.
With his retirement in playing competitive CS:GO, emagine will move into a behind the scenes role with #ORDERCS.— ORDER (@ordergaming_gg) February 17, 2020
In his professional CS:GO career, @emaginenu recorded:
749 Maps played
12807 Total kills
1 CS:GO Major attendance
10 Tournament wins
4 'Big event' appearances pic.twitter.com/ggPBK9BQQ3
ORDER will now be made up of:
- Karlo "USTILO" Pivac
- Matthew "Valiance" Hartrick
- Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland
- Alistair "aliStair" Johnston
emagine has been competing in the competitive CS since Source, but really broke into the scene in 2014. He was also a part of a team that reached ESL One Cologne Major in 2015.
emagine took his career in a different direction in 2016. He moved to North America and competed under the Winterfox banner. Though the roster made up of emagine, Ryan "zewsy" Palmer, Mike "ap0c" Aliferis, Razmik "RaZ" Bastadjan, and Chris "ofnu" Hanley looked promising, they weren't able to achieve much success.
emagine returned home to compete under Kings. Kings would then go on to be signed by ORDER at the beginning of 2018. It is unclear at the moment who ORDER will be replacing emagine with.
Here's what emagine had to say about his retirement:
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.
