Ogre 2 Plans Return to Competitive Halo
Retirement is an unfortunate reality that affects every professional player. Years of competing eventually take their toll and players have to stop playing. Although hanging up the controller is a process every player will face, some find other ways to continue their journey within eSports. One month ago today, Tom “Ogre 2” Ryan announced his second retirement from competitive Halo. After 40 major event wins and a lucrative career that spanned over 13 years, Ogre 2 felt it was time to completely end his career as a player and move on to different areas in competitive Halo. In a recent tweet from Ogre 2, he sheds more light on what exactly he wants to do next.
Many were pleased to know that Ogre 2 is still dedicated to the game and that his passion for competition is still alive and well. The three areas in competitive Halo that Ogre 2 is interested in working in fit perfectly with him. As a competitor, Ogre 2 was a player who could do it all. He could slay, run objective, support his teammates and be the vocal leader his teammates depended on him to be. With his wide variety of abilities and years of experience, Ogre 2 can help out any team at any skill level.
Many fans are already begging him to coach OpTic Gaming, which wouldn’t be a bad idea. With all four players on OpTic being extremely talented and passionate for the game, Ogre 2 could really connect with the players and help organize a team that is sometimes just faling apart. Although Michael "FlameSword" Chaves is a great fit as a coach for OpTic, Ogre 2 has many more years of experience and several more event wins under his belt to prove that he is a much more successful competitor.
Currently this is all speculation, but what is certain is that Ogre 2 is back in the competitive Halo scene and he is determined to continue his dominance within different areas of the competition.
