Washington Justices Kate Mitchell pensionerar sig från Overwatch

Assistant general manager för Washington Justice, Kate Mitchell, meddelar nu att hon pensionerar sig från Overwatch League i och med slutet på Stage 2, där hennes sista dag blir den 13 maj.

Men medger att det funnits bra stunde men skriver också:

"It's impossible to ignore, though, that I've also been confronted with toxicity and casual cruelty from strangers that outpaced anything I saw in years in gaming and politics, especially from people on Reddit. I've been on Reddit for over ten years, and have seen both its strength as a tool for community building and solidarity and its dark side, empowering false rumors, giving attention and ad revenue to muckrakers and liars, and fostering a culture where fans delight in the pain and 'juice' from voyeuristically watching for negative moments in the professional careers of players and staff."

En annan orsak är avsaknaden av familjen samt att hon haft "frequent panic attacks" och fortsätter: "Most mornings before our matches I'd throw up from the stress."

Vi önskar henne lycka till såklart.
