26-year-old American Rainbow Six Siege coach/player Aaron Chung, known as “Gotcha,” had worked for teams like Team SoloMid, Evil Geniuses, Vertical Gaming, and many more. Recently, he led Team SoloMid to win DreamHack Montreal 2019.

Yesterday, Gotcha has made an announcement on his official Twitter account and stated that he is retired from the competitive scene. For the reason of this, Gotcha mentioned that coaching in Rainbow Six Siege is unstable to earn money.

Here is what Gotcha said:

“Since I first started playing Siege, I knew that I wanted to go pro in it. It was and continues to be the most unique FPS out there today. Today, I want to officially announce my retirement from Siege. From grinding in challenger league to coaching EG, TSM, and shortly playing for EG, it’s been an incredible ride.

I’ve been able to travel around the world, compete at the highest level, meet some incredible people, make some incredible friends, and get paid to play the game I love. I recently did have an offer from a NA PL team to coach, but I realized that it’s not a very financially stable position and so I’ll be officially retiring from the pro scene and going back to my normal job.”

He continued:

“I just want to thank my former teams and teammates for giving me the opportunity to coach/play with them, and I wish them the best of luck. It’s cool to see the Siege e-sports scene grow to where it has and I hope it continues to grow for many more years.

To all the aspiring pros out there I’d encourage you as I did to chase your dreams, but always have a backup just in case”
