NeptuNo is not competing for Spain at Overwatch World Cup

"I want some free time and focus on having fun in the game I love."

  • Text: Sam Bishop

Alberto 'NeptuNo' González is an Overwatch player that's part of the Philadelphia Fusion squad that surprised everyone by reaching the grand finals of the Overwatch League last month, but it turns out that we won't see him in action at the World Cup though, since he revealed in a TwitLonger post that he won't be participating.

"I made this decision long ago but did not want to make it official until I was back home. I got really burnt out during OWL Season1, I gave everything I had to improve as a player and make the team better. It was a good run and probably the best experience I've ever had in my life," he said.

"And after so many months of non-stop scrims, thinking about the game, what can we improve as a team, what can I improve, how can I be a better teammate, going into stage and give everything every single time... kidney stone during 45 days, tonsillitis, stomach acid problems, sleep problems... I've decided that the best for me as a person and player is to not participate in the World Cup. I want some free time and focus on having fun in the game I love and stop being tilted-annoyed-stressed for a while."

He also apologises if he's disappointed anyone, but that his decision is purely "to make me reset". Will you miss him?
