Legendary forward AD Uzi may be considering retiring from League of Legends after nearly eight years.
Uzi recently changed the name in the game on his KR solo queue account to “ggggggmeile”. It may sound random, but the term “meile” means “more” in Chinese, which could hint at his possible retirement.
Uzi’s contract with Royal Never Give Up expired on May 1 and he became a free agent. Since then, the League community has been speculating on his retirement.
The 23-year-old said nothing officially about retirement. Changing his name could be a response to his fans, hinting that he won’t be available for other teams to sign. But it could also be just a joke. Uzi Changed His League Username, Hinting At His Retirement From Professional League Of Legends
Even though Uzi is one of the best ADCs in the world, he has considered retirement since 2015 due to his shoulder pain. In a documentary produced by Nike and the LPL, Uzi said his shoulder pain makes it difficult to play for long periods of time, which is a problem for pros who train and compete for long hours each day. .
Uzi started his career at the Royal Club in 2012 and quickly gained importance as a highly skilled mechanical player, staying there for two years before moving on to two other teams. He then joined RNG in 2016.
Uzi revealed in a documentary that he could not play for more than two hours in a row due to injuries to his arms and lower body. A doctor reportedly told him that his arm looked like that of a 40- or 50-year-old man due to years of intense training in the league.
