“I have been in pain/had wrist issues my entire pro career. I remember it all started when I qualified for contenders with Angry Titans back in 2018,” ELLIVOTE wrote in a Twitlonger. “I have gone to several doctors, physiotherapist, done xrays, MRIs, ultrasound and they could never find out the root of the issue. They have given me exercises to do which never helped really helped and they also told me to rest for a longer period of time.”

Ellivote retires from Paris Eternal due to longstanding injury

The off-tank player said that he had always struggled with his wrist throughout his career. The only time he had time to rest his wrist was when he had visa issues with the Washington Justice. He specifically mentions having to take a break earlier this week because he “couldn’t even open a bottle or start the car.”

He doesn’t know how long his injury will take to heal.

Paris Eternal has been improving after a poor run during the first stretch of the Overwatch League season. Ellivote and his tank teammate Daniël “Daan” Scheltema helped Paris sweep the Washington Justice. The team had been performing well after the surprise retirement of former main support Alberto “neptuNo” González, but this additional retirement will only put more weight on the existing roster.

Ellivote added that he will still watch and interact with the Overwatch League community and possibly co-stream upcoming matches.
