Following this decision, NRG have announced the departure of s0m.
Today we say farewell to @s0mcs

NRG was the first and only organization that s0m has been a part of in Valorant. He played Controller roles for the North American squad during the 2023 VCT journey, where even though NRG had some impressive victories, the team ultimately failed to get any significant achievements.
s0m Will Focus on Streaming During Off Season
In the announcement, s0m mentioned that he saw this coming from NRG and clarified that it was also his decision to quit competing for a while – “I kinda just took a step back and decided that I’m just gonna stream for now.”
