Damian “daps” Steele is a 27-year-old Canadian former CS:GO player who is considered as one of the best in-game leaders in North America. In 2016 with Optic Gaming, he built a potential roster that becomes one of the best.

At the end of the year, Daps created another lineup for the North American scene featuring the best talents such as Ethan, Brehzw, Cerq, and more. Lastly, he was representing Gen.G Esports.

In September 2020, Daps announced his retirement from the CS:GO scene and switched to Valorant. He joined NRG Esports’ Valorant roster to build one of the best teams in the North American scene once again.

Although he had such players like s0m and Infinite, the roster couldn’t deliver in the tournaments and couldn’t even reach out to the finals of any big tournaments.

Yesterday, NRG announced that Daps did not only leave the roster, he also decided to retire from Valorant. “daps has decided to step down from the NRG Valorant roster and will be retiring from professional play,” the organization announced. “Thank you for everything you’ve accomplished with the NRG family, we’ve had some amazing moments, thank you for the memories.”

After a short period, Daps took his official Twitter account to explain why he decided to retire from the game and mentioned that he doesn’t enjoy playing Valorant anymore and this is the main reason behind this decision.

Here is what daps said:

“It’s been no secret to the people around me that I just don’t enjoy playing anymore which was the main reason to my choice. Should have news regarding my future plans soon! Best of luck to tex, eeiu, ANDROID, and s0m in trying out a replacement for me!”
