- Cameron “Kronovi” Bills, one of Rocket League’s most popular players, has announced his retirement from professional competition
- He states he intends on making new content on his Twitch and YouTube channels
- Kronovi leaves an impressive career behind that spans years
Kronovi, one of Rocket League’s most popular players and one of its first champions is retiring from the competitive scene and is looking at potentially taking up content creation.
In the early hours of 2022 Cameron “Kronovi” Bills, one of Rocket League’s most legendary players announced his retirement from competing professionally. The veteran player says he wants to focus on content creation on both his Twitch and YouTube channels, promising that people will be seeing even more of him than before.
With Kronovi leaving to pursue other activities, which potentially include coaching and/or casting, the community loses one of the best players it has seen. Kronovi has been a major name in Rocket League ever since the game’s launch back in 2015. The former champion is a veteran of the game’s predecessor, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. This gave Kronovi a significant competitive edge ahead of many other players back in the game’s early seasons. He was one of the few remaining players from the first season, with a career spanning over ten seasons.
Kronovi Leaves a Rich Career Behind
Kronovi’s career is dotted with successes from the very beginning. He won the first-ever RLCS World Championships in May 2016 with iBuyPower alongside Brandon “Lachinio” Lachin and Ted “0ver Zer0” Keil. This came as a surprise to many as the team was considered underdogs playing with a substitute player in 0ver Zer0 and having an unexpectedly difficult time qualifying.
Winning the RLCS Season 1 cemented Kronovi’s reputation as the most well-known player in the community, becoming somewhat of a poster child of the game worldwide. He always seemed to be well-spoken and professional when giving interviews. Despite that, it seems he couldn’t ever quite reach his Season 1 success, failing to qualify and ultimately even fighting against relegation. But he always managed to find his footing again and remained ever-present in the RLCS.
Kronovi described his career as a “roller coaster at Six Flags”, in his twitlonger explaining his retirement. „There are tons of highs and lows. I’ve always been someone that bounced back no matter how bad things got.”
However, Kronovi stated that keeping up the effort to stay on top is becoming too stressful for him. Having fallen to a substitute spot in the current season of the RLCS and failing to qualify for any events despite making several appearances also pun unnecessary stress on him.
Having left the professional scene, Kronovi leaves the only three other players, who are left from Season 1, which are Pierre “Turbopolsa” Silfver, Garrett “GarrettG” Gordon, and Francesco “Kuxir97” Cinquemani. Despite his retirement, Kronovi has said that his fans will see even more of him in the future to come.
