NYYRIKKI Esports is leaving Overwatch

Post thumbnail

This decision was not easy for us, as our organization has been competing in Overwatch since our beginning and majority of our staff, including myself, have been a part of the Overwatch scene even before NYYRIKKI Esports existed.

Our first season in Contenders has been anything but smooth sailing, as we have gone through a lot of roster changes, some caused by players wanting to play in different environments, some caused because our players felt like they are reaching the end of their esports-careers. As of now, the plan is to transfer focus from Overwatch towards our existing League of Legends and CS:GO -teams.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported NYYRIKKI through the years, and we would like to thank all our previous Overwatch players. Much love, remember that the world could always use more heroes.
