Team SouL recently won the hearts of every Indian PUBG fan after they made their way to PMCO Berlin and came in at 12th place after putting up a very valiant effort. But it seems like heartbreak isn’t over for Team SouL fans as MortaL has announced that he’s retiring from Competitive PUBG Mobile.
As seen from his Youtube Community post, Naman “MortaL” Mathur is stepping down as a competitive player from Team SouL but will still be a part of the organization probably as a streamer and not a pro player. He doesn’t know about who will replace him yet as that is up to the team and not him.
It is also important to note that he did not decide this after the PMCO Berlin performance but had realized that being a professional player and being a streamer at the same time was hard during the Regional Qualifiers for PMCO in Delhi. He now wants to focus on streaming and trying out different games besides PUBG Mobile.
It’s safe to say that the decision did come out of the blue but the man is just looking for happiness and if streaming gives him that happiness then props to him for not forcing himself to play competitively. He may return to the esports scene later but that’s a maybe and doesn’t seem like it will be any time soon.
This must be a big change for him and we would like to wish Naman the best in this endeavor.
