Alexander Magor, known as “Skys,” is a 23-year-old American Rainbow Six Siege player who had been playing for DarkZero Esports since November 2019. Before that, he was playing for Team Reciprocity.

Skys and his colleagues in DarkZero attended Six Invitational 2021 after putting out the points in the Global Standings. However, the North American roster couldn’t reach out to the final stages of the tournament.

On the group stage, they put a great show to the audience by beating up Team Empire, Cloud9, and Furia Esports. But, they couldn’t have the consistency in the best-of-one matches and moved to the playoffs from the lower bracket.

In the first round of the lower bracket, DarkZero faced Furia Esports once again, but they lost both Chalet and Consulate maps against the Brazilian roster and bid farewell to the tournament.

After the Six Invitational 2021 comes to an end, Skys took his official Twitter account to share a new post and announced his retirement from the competitive scene by sharing an open letter.

Why Skys Retired?

For the past few years, professional players have been mentioning how unenjoyable the Siege in public. And because of how bad the game state is, most of them lost their motivation and desire to play the game.

The biggest name that announced his retirement was G2 Esports’ Niclas “Pengu” Mouritzen. After a short period, another legend from Spacestation Gaming, Troy “Canadian” Jaroslawski, retired from the game.

Yesterday, DarkZero’s Skys also announced that he decided to retire from competitive Rainbow Six Siege and pointed out that he spent few months thinking about the retirement before making this decision.

According to his statement, Skys had lost himself for the past few months, and he started to not enjoy the game at all, which are the main reasons why he decided to retire from competitive play. However, Skys stated that he will continue streaming for now.

Here is what Skys said:

“As of today, I will be retiring from Rainbow Six Seige professional play. I’ve been playing this game since it started 6 years ago, put everything I had into it, consumed my days with only thinking about siege & its time to do other things.

This decision has not come easy and I’ve spent the last few months thinking about it & mentally it just feels to be the right time. I feel like i have lost myself as a person over the past couple months & with that have slowly started to not enjoy playing the game.

DarkZero has been home to me and I wish them nothing but success moving forward they will continue to do great things. I also want to give a special thanks to the teammates & friends who I have had the pleasure of playing with for taking a chance on me.

As for what this means for me? I look forward to dipping my toes into a few different things and in the meantime will be streaming a whole lot more. It’s been an incredible journey and who knows what the future can bring! Thank you again, for everything.”
