Liquid`Sea retires

ImageThe last days and months of 2012 seem to be bad times for the Starcraft II community. A lot of players retired and today another known Terran player retires, as he is lacking motivation and fun to play Starcraft II at the competitive level.

The latest addition of Team Liquid's Starcraft II roster is already leaving the team again. KR Yum 'Sea' Bo Sung has only been with Team Liquid for two months, but has done quite decent in this short period of time.

Sea attended IPL 5 and showed some good games there. He also tried to qualify for GSL Season 5 but was unable to do so. However he was known for his stream and the interaction with his fans. The main reason for him to join TL was to rediscover his passion and enjoyment for gaming, but he was unable to do so. After seven years of professional gaming, he retires with the age of 22.

Statement by Sea:
"I'm sorry to my fans that I'm retiring so abruptly. But this is a decision I've made after giving it lot of thought, so I hope you will understand. There's a lot of things to say, but it's hard for me to put them down as words, so I'll keep it brief.

It was a short time, but I'm so thankful to my fans who cheered me on, and it makes me sad thinking about what could have been if I had met you sooner. Thanks to all of my teammates on POS, MBCGame, the 8th Team, and TeamLiquid who I spent my time as a progamer with. I'm very thankful to the TeamLiquid staff who took such good care of me, and I'll never forget them.

If there's a beginning, there's an end. My progaming life ends, but for my bond with Liquid, it's just starting. I'll always cheer for Liquid as an honorary member."

Statement by Nazgul:
"From the beginning, we didn't know exactly what to expect when Sea joined Liquid. He started off by surprising us, exceeding our expectations. He was extremely enthusiastic about interacting with fans, and he improved his StarCraft II skills at an amazing pace. In many ways, he was the perfect new recruit.

Unfortunately for us, it couldn't last. Though Sea enjoyed his time on Liquid, especially getting to experience IPL5, he couldn't rediscover his passion and enjoyment for gaming. One of the main reasons Sea had for joining Liquid was that he felt he would regain a joy for gaming that had worn away after having played professionally for seven years. And while the experience of being on a new team and traveling abroad gave Sea some new motivation, it was not enough. As one of the Brood War greats, Sea has high standards, and he wasn't enjoying the game as much as he needed to, in order to reach the level of success he was asking from himself. After a lot of thought and discussion with Liquid and those around him, Sea made the difficult decision to retire."
