Profit lifts the 2018 Playoffs MVP

One of the best players to ever play Overwatch and Overwatch 2, Park “Profit” Joon-yeong has retired after seven years of competing. 

Overwatch 2, and by extension, Overwatch has been around long enough to have a storied history in esports. The competitive side is heading into a new era with the more open OWCS in March, but it has had eight years of organized play in various iterations, including six years of the Overwatch League. 

Within that history, there are maybe two or three players that can claim GOAT status, and one has been doing it longer than anyone. Profit is one of the most recognizable faces in competitive Overwatch, but sadly his story is coming to an end. 

Profit, known best for his excellent Tracer play (though he was always deeply versatile), has decided to retire after seven years of competing. 

Profit has decided to call it quits

In a post on X/Twitter, he announced he was hanging it up and thus would not be joining a team for the new Overwatch Champions Series. He said, “I am here today to announce my retirement after 7 years as an esports player.”

“I’m truly grateful to all the fans for the love and support I received whether I played well or not”.

“It’s a shame I have to retire, but I learned and experienced a lot as an esports player… I will never forget the love that you guys sent me.”

Profit is one of, if not the most decorated players in the game, most notably for his MVP award for the finals of the first season of the Overwatch League where he won with London Spitfire. Profit also ended the Overwatch League as the player with the most Final Blows, Eliminations, and Hero Damage, cementing his place as one of the best players the game has ever seen.
