NRG's Daps retires from pro Valorant

The former CS:GO veteran will no longer be playing for NRG Esports’ Valorant team.
One of the founding members of NRG Esports’ Valorant roster, Damian “daps” Steele, is stepping down from the team and retiring from professional play. The team took to Twitter to make the announcement.

Daps explained the reasoning behind his retirement in a Twitter post stating, “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.”

Daps joined NRG Esports in October 2020 as the team’s first professional Valorant player. He was later joined by Sam “s0m” Oh, Daniel “eeiu” Vucenovic, Yannick “KOLER” Blanchette, and Ryan “Shanks” Ngo; forming NRG Esports initial Valorant roster.
