NRG Valorant professional Damian "daps" Steele has announced his retirement from the esport, following first joining the team back in October 2020. Daps and the NRG team has seen limited success in the Valorant scene over these past few months, earning prize money here and there, but never quite qualifying for the big Masters-level Valorant Champions Tour events.
The retirement announcement from NRG states, "@daps has decided to step down from the NRG VALORANT roster and will be retiring from professional play. Thank you for everything you've accomplished with the #NRGFAM, we've had some amazing moments, thank you for the memories."
Daps also gave a statement about the decision, saying, "It's been no secret to the people around me that I just don't enjoy playing anymore which was the main reason to my choice. Should have news regarding my future plans soon! Best of luck to @texerino @777eeiu @ANDROIDX23 and @s0mcs in trying out a replacement for me!"
