Thomas Paparatto, known as “ZooMaa,” is a 25-year-old American Call Of Duty player who had been playing for New York Subliners since September 2019. Previously, he had played for teams like FaZe Clan, Team Envy, and more.

ZooMaa uploaded a twitlonger post on his official Twitter account and saddened the whole community by announcing the retirement of his professional Call Of Duty career.

In the post, ZooMaa remembered the time when he needed to step down from FaZe Clan following the thumb/wrist weakness and stated that it was so hard for him to recover both mentally and physically.

Unfortunately, ZooMaa started to suffer again the same injury and mentioned that the injury makes it so hard to compete at a high level. Because of that, he wanted to retire from the competitive scene and said goodbye to the community.

Here is what ZooMaa said:

“This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write, I am stepping down and will no longer compete in competitive Call of Duty for the foreseeable future.

Not sure if many of you remember, but a few years back while on FaZe, I struggled with weakness in my thumb/wrist and needed surgery.

Going through that process of getting healthy again was one of the hardest things I ever had to do both physically & mentally, which led to a lot of stress and anxiety.”

He continued:

“Unfortunately, the injury has returned making it really hard for me to compete at the highest level against some of the best players in the world. Playing through the weakness and pain in my hand just isn’t possible anymore.

I don’t enjoy competing when I can’t be the ZooMaa everyone knows and loves and feel like it’s not fair to myself or to my team to go through all that again, potentially causing more damage to my hand.

It breaks my heart to step away from a game I put my heart and soul into every single day for eight years. Tearing up just writing this, but I don’t know what else to do at this point. It’s been an amazing run…”
