.PhP announces retirement

May 3rd, 2013 21:35

Marek ".PhP" Kadek has announced via his Facebook page that he has decided to go back to inactivity once again.

Kadek ventured into CS:GO in January following Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný's departure from myDGB.net, a move that was met with widespread praise from the CS:Source community, in which the Slovakian player was a household name.

In his first CS:GO tournament, Your road to Katowice, he showed signs of promise, helping myDGB.net to finish runners-up to ESC Gaming in Poland.

But after being taken under the wings of 3DMAX, Kadek and rest of the team struggled to keep up with the pace of the game and crashed out early at Mad Catz Vienna and Copenhagen Games.

.PhP considers CS:GO stint a mistake

Just days after the event in Denmark, 3DMAX's CS:GO team disbanded, and Kadek has now decided to give the game a rest.

"Bye bye everyone, best of luck to all my fans and everyone," he wrote on his Facebook page.

"I should not have returned to CS:GO, I never really had time to play on a top level. With lots of things going on in me life, my head was never in the right place."

This is now the second player from the former 3DMAX team to announce their inactivity, following in the footsteps of Šťastný, who decided last month to take a break from gaming.

Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács is currently playing with TCM-Gaming, who have been in impressive form with their new lineup, winning RADEON Offensive #2 and topping the qualifier for SLTV StarSeries VI.

see ya

He was truly a landmark in CS:S itself with Reason Gaming "back in the days"

Ha-ha-ha. Steam was never really well-acclaimed or used in SE Asia until DOTA2 came out, alongside with the massive expansion of Steam in Asia. Still wanna be offensive? Come at me, bro.

Good luck .PhP!!! He was one of the best rifle players in CSS and with one of the best awpers(GuardiaN) they were the team to remember for all times.If someone is not familiar with CSS scene and Reason Gaming here you can see how great .PhP and GurdiaN played together. themovievault.net/video/reason-lan79-hig..

Gl, it is just so sad you started on GO and never really made it to the top, because you were a boss in source back in Reason!
2013-05-04 19:21
