Former Dallas Fuel player Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned has revealed that he probably won’t be competing at Overwatch All-Stars.
Seagull recently announced that he would be retiring from professional Overwatch, returning instead to streaming full-time.
Though he won’t be competing for Dallas Fuel in Season Two, Seagull was still expected to appear on stage one last time, as a starting player for the Pacific Division team for All-Stars.
All-Stars, which will take place on August 25-26, will see teams of the most skilled and popular players of the Atlantic and Pacific Divisions go head-to-head. As one of the most popular streamers in Overwatch, it’s little surprise that Seagull won a spot on the fan-voted starting six for his Division.
Unfortunately, it appears that Seagull may already have played his last professional game. During a recent stream, he revealed that he likely will not be competing at the event, for reasons unconnected to his retirement.
Seagull isn’t the first player to pull out of All-Stars, with London Spitfire’s Kim ‘Birdring’ Ji-hyeok missing the event due to injury. Birdring will be replaced by team-mate and grand finals MVP Park ‘Profit’ Joon-yeong.
No replacement has yet been announced for Seagull, though neither has official confirmation of his absence from the event.
