Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans has announced his retirement from competing in CS:GO via Twitter.
End of my player career - New role to learn !— Ex6TenZ (@akukhoS) February 6, 2020
Ex6TenZ has been competing in CS since 2005, where he played Source. In CS:GO, Ex6TenZ competed on teams like LDLC, G2, and GamerLegion. His primary role in CS was an in-game leader, and he is often regarded as one of the best to touch the game.
In his Twitlonger, Ex6TenZ says that while this is the end of his career as a player, he isn't done with CS.
Now is the time to change direction and role. I may no longer have the motivation to practice 10 hours per day individually in addition to the strategic work but I still love the game, the teamplay, the tactic, the job well done, the desire to get the best out of my players as a group and as individuals. I want to transmit these values and immerse myself more in the analysis, observation and the management of a group. For these reasons I want to become a coach. I've known for a long time that it would be the next logical step for me because my vision was more and more global and not enough focused on myself.
Ex6TenZ joining a team as a coach would be a fascinating thing to witness. Due to his background and expertise, I'm sure teams will be eager to give him a spot.
