Bjergsen retires from League esports

It’s been an up-and-down career for Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, who is known by most League of Legends fans as one of the greatest players in the game’s history. But after 100 Thieves’ playoff run was cut short by Golden Guardians this past split, the 27-year-old has hung up his keyboard and mouse for the final time, he announced today.

“I worked harder than a lot of people, I wanted it more than a lot of those people, and I was willing to sacrifice time with friends, family, personal interests, hobbies, [and] really just anything,” Bjergsen said. “For a long time, I’ve felt—and even told the people around me—that if I didn’t feel like I could give my absolute all towards winning and being the best… then it would be time to stop, and it feels like that time is now.”
