Legendary CS:GO player flusha has officially announced his retirement from professional gaming after an impressive 11-year career. Although flusha spent the last two years playing in tier-two and tier-three tournaments with GORILLAZ and later EYEBALLERS, he retires as one of the most decorated CS:GO pros of all time due to his prime years with Fnatic.
During his time with Fnatic, flusha achieved great success and won three Majors—DreamHack Winter in 2013, ESL One Katowice in 2015, and ESL One Cologne in 2015. In addition to these victories, he also secured numerous other tier-one trophies, solidifying his position as one of the best players in the game. While Olofmeister is considered Fnatic’s best-ever CS:GO player, flusha is not far behind.
Flusha’s skills were so exceptional that he faced accusations of cheating early in his career. However, these allegations were proven false, and flusha managed to overcome the witchhunt and focus on his game.
In an official statement, flusha cited a lack of motivation and diminishing fun while playing as the main reasons for his retirement. He also mentioned that he believed EYEBALLERS needed new blood, leading him to make this decision. Despite retiring from professional play, flusha plans to transition into a streamer role under the EYEBALLERS banner, a tag he and his former teammate JW resurrected in 2022.
Fellow CS:GO professionals have expressed their gratitude towards flusha for his contributions to the game. Notably, flusha donated money to support FalleN and fer’s KabuM team in their journey to the ESL One Katowice Major in 2015. This act of generosity gave the duo increased opportunities, and they went on to win back-to-back Majors in 2016.
As flusha bows out of competitive gaming, the CS:GO community honors his achievements and wishes him success in his future endeavors as a streamer. His retirement marks the end of an era in the professional CS:GO scene.
