Kjaerbye Reveals the Reason Behind His Retirement From Competitive CS:GO
One of the best riflers in the world during his peak, Kjaerbye had made history by winning the ELEAGUE Atlanta in 2017 along with Astralis when he was just 18 years and 277 days old, becoming the youngest CS:GO player in the world to win a Major.
Unfortunately, that was also the peak of his career as slowly everything fell apart. He left Astralis in 2018 to join North, but could not win anything significant apart from the memorable victory at DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018.
A few health problems forced him to take some time off from North’s active CS:GO lineup and the game itself. He returned after FaZe Clan signed him but the stint did not go as planned, pushing Kjaerbye to the organization’s bench from where he had now announced his retirement.
There was no mention by the Dane to transit over to Valorant, a decision that was recently taken by Nathan “NBK-“ Schmitt, another CS:GO legend who departed the title recently. However, Kjaerbye did mention that his “Future work can be both inside and outside the game. Time will tell.”
