Fear Retires from Dota 2
After being a part of the Evil Geniuses organization for around a decade, Clinton “Fear” Loomis is hanging up his professional career because of health issues. Fear will stay on with his old team as their new coach.
Fear was instrumental in the team's success at the 2015 International and EG hopes that keeping him on board with their lineup will help get a repeat performance in the next one.
“Today, I'm announcing my retirement from competitive Dota" Fear said. "I have been living my dream of being a professional gamer for over a decade now, and in that time I've accomplished each of the goals I placed for myself and for EG Dota. Now, I have to pursue a new goal - getting healthy. I still have a passion for Dota and for competing, but the long term health of my arm has to come first. Thank you all for your support.”
Fear will surely go down in history as one North America’s greatest players and perhaps, if the shoe fits, a great coach too.
