Insomnia Officially Retires
The human legend, Zdravko "SK.Insomnia" Georgiev has now officially retired, confirming the rumours. Insomnia has been playing for SK-Gaming for five years, and has been playing WC3L since its beginning. Insomnia has achieved much through his long career, winning WCG 2003 at the peak of his career. Here's an extract from his blog on SK-Gaming, where he states the main reason to retiring as the game was simply 'getting boring':
Finally exactly 5 years after I joined SK I decided to tell everyone in the team how I felt and that I wanted to quit even tho I still had a running contract. On November 15th 2007 we all gathered in the SK office in Cologne for the upcoming wc3l finals and I used this opportunity to make the announcement. Big shout out goes to Alex, whom most of you know as TheSlasH - the SK Gaming global manager. He understood me and supported me in my decision. Thanks Alex, thanks for the support and the motivation you provided through all these years, thanks for leading the team forward and thanks for always being there when needed. I also want to thank my latest teammates - ReMinD, Soju and Lyn. SK could not have wished for better guys to join and strengthen the team. I have had great respect for all of them, long before they joined SK and was very happy when I heard we were recruiting them to the team. They all have an insane amount of potential. Thank you guys for the great performance at the WC3L playoffs, allowing me to end my career with a great victory.
I want to apologize to you guys for not putting up the announcement in time. The reason why this happened is simple. We wanted to have this blog up on the page along with the news item, but I just couldn't find the time to write it. Now when my time is not occupied with war3 I've had so many new things entering my life it's crazy. I am doing different kinds of sports 4 times a week now. Yesterday I went snowboarding, had so much fun. I also resumed my university studies and started socializing with my friends a lot more. I am also playing poker online to be able to get some income, but I am not focusing on it nearly as much as I did on games before. All in all life has been great and I certainly don't regret my decision to leave the scene.
Last but not least I want to thank you guys. Thank you for the great support you provided during all those years, I hope I was able to give something back to you through my games. My advice to you is never to give up on your dreams, no matter what. That is the key to success, that everyone’s looking for.
Thanks for reading.
WCR would like to wish Insomnia the best of the luck in the future.
