According to HLTV.org, Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom has announced that he has retired from competitive Counter-Strike with immediate effect.
The 26-year-old Belgian rifler last played for Gamer Legion and has been playing in temporary stacks ever since while also taking a break before the launch of Valorant. ScreaM migrated to Valorant since it’s beta launch and has retained much of his aiming prowess while being one of the players to seamlessly ease into the game and its mechanism.
Today ScreaM bid farwell to his illustrious 7 year old career at CS:GO where in times, he has represented a plethora of organizations including the top tier teams, G2 Esports and Team EnvyUs. During his career, he rose to his supremacy in 2016 when he helped his team G2 to claim the inaugural ECS Season 1 title after seeing off Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo and his men in the grand finals where he was adjudged as the MVP at the same.
His career too dates back to the early days where he had helped his former Team Titan clinch the DreamHack Stockholm CS:GO invitational by SteelSeries in 2014 where he along with Richard “Shox” Papillon sent Ninjas in Pyjamas packing in the grand final. But over these years, we did see a steep downfall in his progress and achievements as he was unable to gain back his momentum after a couple of unsuccessful events. Notably known as the “Headshot Machine” in the CS:GO community because of his stupendous aiming power, gone are the days where we would see this giant rise back to represent a team in CS:GO.
Adil in his Tweet has revealed his plans to establish his career in the newly blooming FPS titled “Valorant”. We will now see ScreaM shooting heads as he will now represent the North American Organization Team Liquid for its Official Games in Valorant.
