Lurppis, naSu Retire from eSports

READMORE.EU - Readmore.eu is reporting that Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen and his brother Niko "naSu" Kovanen have retired from professional gaming.

"As I've told you before when we've talked I've just been really tired of the whole game and haven't had much hope in our team since removing ruuit (which I didn't want to do), but I figured I was gonna grind it out until Korea with my brother because I really wanted to go there and check out Tokyo after that, but I've been contemplating quitting for a while," he told readmore.eu.

The Kovanen brothers played for Crack Clan, who have announced Oskari "ruuit" Aspe and Tino "tihOp" Puumala as their replacements.  Crack Clan recently placed third at KODE5 Spain.

"Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen revealed that he has wanted to retire from gaming for some months and that the fact he could not convince the team into making the roster changes he wanted helped him make up his mind and put an end to his career on Wednesday", readmore.eu reported.

Crack Clan has also replaced Matti "SPIKEONE" Järvinen with Max "ruuit" Aspe, according to the Crack Clan website.

 

The new Crack Clan team looks like:

Juuso “contE” Sajakoski

Samu “plastE” Aalto

Max “ruuit” Aspe

Tino “tihOp” Puumala

Jirka “jigetus” Ryhti
