SPUNJ retires from CS:GO

Renegades captain Chad 'SPUNJ' Burchill has announced via Twitter that he has hung up his mouse in professional CS:GO.

Following speculation in certain corners of the scene in the past weeks, Renegades captain Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill has officially announced his retirement from professional CS:GO after a storied history that dates back to the early days of the game and beyond.

Beginning with an appearance for Vox Eminor at the MSI Beat It! 2013 finals, SPUNJ debuted in successive Australian Vox Eminor lineups that attended Majors throughout 2014 and 2015: EMS One Katowice, ESL One Cologne 2014, and ESL One Katowice 2015.


SPUNJ led Australian teams in multiple Major outings in 2014 & 2015

Constant appearances and a roster with experience meant the attention of a (then big) organisation such as Renegades, who signed the ex-Vox Eminor team and under whose banner the Renegades had a 9-12th place finish at ESL One Cologne 2015 (where they famously knocked out Titan in the group stages).

The team soon moved to the Downtown Grand in Las Vegas and prepared for integration into the North American scene. However, a number of crushing losses at tournaments such as the iBUYPOWER Cup, a few internet spats, and two failed Major qualification campaigns (as well as ESL Pro League near misses) clearly took their toll on SPUNJ, whose performance took a hit in the recent months.


As captain, Burchill took heavy portion of the blame for the team's recent slip-ups

Despite his retirement, the 26-year-old Australian did mention that he will endeavour to continue working in the esports industry and continuing his work in the space on which he has left a mark, particularly for the Oceania scene.

True. They arent anywhere near top 20. Maybe with some guidance they can get there.
2016-06-17 18:13
SPUNJ should be a coach/igl. He's a good igl but bad player.
2016-06-17 18:17
His individual performance while never being great really declined. Hopefully renegades perform with the new player, some skilled guys on the team just need some direction and confidence.

2000 years ago it was our labd until others tried to kick us out until rome sucseeded and 100 years ago we wanted our country back so actually its our terittory and all the others stole it from us, we suffered alot during these 2000 years including the holocost wich costed us 6 million people so go the hell by thinking those thoughts
2016-06-18 18:55
We also lost people on the islands war .mayority kids 17 fighting.. So GO the hell u too
2016-06-18 18:59
Go home warchild asshold. Don´t shame my country like this.
2016-06-18 20:17
from the river to the sea palestine will be free
2016-06-18 22:00
So your logic is basically... 2000 Years ago we got kicked in the ass by the Romanian Empire and after 1900 years we gonna do the same to another Country? Seems legit

2016-06-17 21:45
he is talking about the major performance they had at gfinity which ultimately put australian cs on the map

if you knew cs for more than 2 weeks then you would know ;)
2016-06-18 02:39
congrats for taking a map off of a top team how about you win a series?
2016-06-18 03:17
+1 And since when was Aussie CS on the map? We got 1 team that competes internationally. Fucking Bravado from South Africa competed internationally once upon a time.

No, not really, you could keep going as much and as far as your talent can take you, that much is certain. Still, being an eSports professional today isn't exactly something that secures your future a 100%, same with regular sports even, unless you're either famous enough (so actual companies or something else involved with your sport would hire you) or have made enough money to start your own life/business afterwards, something that will keep you afloat for the rest of your life even - then you're really playing with "fire", unless you have a decent degree to fall back upon, but even at that, you would most likely be closing in on your thirties, with no actual useful work experience, despite your degree, you wouldn't exactly be first in line to any jobs where others with experience are also lining up.
