One of the best and consistent players in the CS:GO scene, Cédric “RpK” Guipouy, announced his retirement by sharing a new post on his official Twitter account.

RpK is a 32-year-old French player who started his Counter-Strike career fourteen years ago. Before playing CS:GO, RpK was a professional player in Counter-Strike: Source, and he lastly played for Very Games.

In 2012 after CS:GO was released, RpK transitioned to CS:GO with Very Games. In late 2014, he joined one of the best teams in CS:GO history, which was a French team that dominated the scene back then, Titan.

After two years, RpK joined G2 Esports and played for the organization till early 2017. Then, he tried out his luck in Team Envy, but his journey didn’t last long, and left the organization after a year.

However, RpK returned back to his old glory with Team Vitality in 2018, as he was one of the important pieces of the puzzle through their way to the top. In two years, Team Vitality and RpK were on top of the standings.

Unfortunately, RpK and Team Vitality had been underperforming recently, and the organization decided to bench him in April 2021 as they bring new blood to the roster. Last month, RpK bid farewell to Team Vitality.

Yesterday, the veteran player, also known as ‘Le Tank,’ announced his retirement from the Counter-Strike, and he revealed that he started a new merchandise collection to honor his legacy in the game.

RpK announced his retirement with these words:

Today marks the end of a long & beautiful career. It started long ago, had ups & downs, but I always loved it. I’m greatful for your support over the years, I won’t forget it. In memory of my journey, I started my merch to keep Le Tank legacy alive.

I’m also working on projects about my life and career, and I can’t wait to tell you more in a near future and to share my memories. Huge thanks to Prodigy Agency for making this project alive and supporting me even after my career!”
