Patiphan Retires From Professional Overwatch
Los Angeles Gladiators DPS player Patiphan calls it quits on his esports career
by Tit Krajnik on September 23, 2022   

On Thursday, September 22, Los Angeles Gladiators announced that its star DPS player Patiphan "Patiphan" Chaiwong has retired from professional Overwatch. It's unclear why, but it seems like Patiphan has decided to exit the pro scene due to a wrist injury.


Patiphan is one of the most recognizable figures in the Overwatch scene and is widely known as one of the top DPS players in the world. He started his career in 2018 with OneShine Esports before joining Xavier Esports, Talon Esports, and WGS Phoenix, where he has spent three months (May-August 2020) on loan.

In August 2020, Patiphan announced his retirement from Overwatch but returned to the scene in December 2021, when he got picked up by Los Angeles Gladiators for the 2022 OWL season. With the Gladiators, Patiphan has achieved a lot, winning the Overwatch League 2022 - Kickoff Clash and Midseason madness tournaments, serving as a key player in his team's success.

Notably, with his success over the first two tournaments of the 2022 OWL season, Patiphan has helped LA Gladiators' quality for the postseason, but it seems like he won't be there to compete with the Gladiators for the OWL title.

Known for his aim and clutch ability, Patiphan has accomplished a lot over his Overwatch esports career, including several Contenders titles, and he even made an appearance at Overwatch World Cup 2018 - Bangkok Qualifier for his nation.

Unfortunately, his career has ended, and while it has yet to be revealed why, many OWL fans believe it has to do with Patiphan's writs injury, which was confirmed last month by Los Angeles Gladiators. Patiphan has yet to reveal what his future plans are, but we can expect to hear more from him in the coming days.

The retirement of the 19-year-old marks the second major departure from Los Angeles Gladiators, who, last week, waved goodbye to Lee "ANS" Seon-chang. Still, despite losing two DPX players, LA Gladiators still field a seven-man roster, which will take the stage on Friday, September 23, in the first round of  Overwatch League 2022 - Countdown Cup Qualifiers.
