Rainbow Six Siege veteran Panix announces retirement
Panix has registered for a bachelor’s degree and seeks to get back to a more normal life.
Dimitri “Panix” de Longeaux, one of the firsts Rainbow Six Siege (R6) pro player will no longer be competitively playing R6, he has announced on his Twitter.
My retirement from competitive Rainbow 6 Siege and my good bye to the community.— Gamma Panix (@PanixR6) April 6, 2021
In Tweetlonger Panix referred to his deteriorating mental health since the pro got benched from Natus Vincere (Na'Vi). In the past, Panix had already made up his mind that he will try his level best with GAMMA GAMING and would consider retiring if that doesn't work out. Unfortunately, it hasn't and the time has come.
Rainbow Six Siege was initially rolled out in April 2015 and not much longer after that Panix was playing professionally in 2016 with Playing Ducks. Since then, a half-decade later, Panix is calling quits after fielding for teams like Team Vitality, Mock-it Esports, PENTA Sports, BDS Esport, Natus Vincere and the very recent GAMMA GAMING.
Many long-time Rainbow Six fans are saddened by Panix's departure. He's been a fixture of the EU scene for many years, and although he may not have reached the same amount of popularity as some, he is adored by many.
What a Journey it's been Panix.— Pengu (@Pengu) April 6, 2021

GAMMA GAMING is currently featuring Leon “Leonski” Snikkers, Tom “Deapek” Pieksma, Dean “Avaiche” Groenen, Reece “ASTRO” Lambert and looks to fill the void vacated by Panix.
