Los Angeles Valiant player, Scott “Custa” Kennedy has retired from playing Overwatch professionally, but the former main support player will still be part of the Overwatch League.

The news comes after the retirement of both professional Overwatch players, Jake JakeLyon and Hyeon ‘Pine’ Kim. In a TwitLonger Custa announced his retirement as a professional, sharing his experience throughout his professional career.

The former main support player will not be out of the Overwatch League though, he was hired as a desk analyst for the 2020 Overwatch League season.

Custa will not be the only former professional Overwatch player to join the Overwatch League talent team for 2020, Jake will be casting Overwatch League games, announced today by Blizzard.

Custa stated that his retirement has nothing to with the Valiant and his decision has been a long time coming.

“I still believe in Valiant more than anybody, they have an amazing set of coaching staff, and players that I know will make waves in 2020 OWL.I want to be clear that the reason I am retiring has nothing to do with Valiant, this has been a long time coming.”

Custa started off as part of team Fnatic in 2016, moved to Arc6 in 2017, then he was recruited by Dallas Fuel. He later was traded to Los Angeles Valiant mid-season one of the Overwatch League, and since then he stayed as a crucial member of the Valiant, proving his leadership skills on the team.

Custa will be streaming on Twitch more frequently after his retirement, you can catch his streams here.
