KuKi of Los Angeles Valiant retires from professional Overwatch ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Los Angeles Valiant have announced the retirement of professional Overwatch player, Kim “KuKi” Dae-kuk. This comes almost two weeks after Fissure of Seoul Dynasty retired and around two months since 4 other OWL players did the same. 

KuKi joined Los Angeles Valiant from Seoul Dynasty in OWL's second season. Filling the role of substitute main tank, he came to play the entire first stage as a substitute for main support, Scott “Custa” Kennedy. He returned to his substitute main tank role after they ended stage one with 0-7 score. 

Earlier this season, Los Angeles Valiant released substitute DPS Chae “Bunny” Joon-hyuk and traded main tank Koo “Fate” Pan-seung to Florida Mayhem for multiple players. These changes led to Valiant adopting a predominantly Western roster and KuKi's departure will just reinforce it. 

Whether KuKi's retirement is simply a coincidence or a growing tendency for OWL players to burnout or lose interest, remains to be seen.
