Former fnatic player Markus "pronax" Wallsten, one of the most legendary players in Counter-Strike history, has announced his retirement from competitive scene, the player announced today.

Pronax won the first CS:GO Major at DreamHack Winter 2013 as he helped fnatic to become one of the most dominant teams in the history of Counter-Strike. He is also the first to win three Major titles, two of them were back-to-back championships, before having to make way for Dennis "dennis" Edman at the end of 2015.

In April 2016, the 27-year-old created a new team, GODSENT. The project, which featured big names from the Sweedish scene like Jesper “JW” Wecksell, Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson, and Robin “flusha” Rönnquist, who left Fnatic in August 2016, was unsuccessful, winning just one title in 15 months.

He make his final appearence in a tournament at the Copenhagen Games 2019, under GODSENT’s flag.
