The time has come for me to 'retire' from pro-gaming! See http://t.co/sfHLhMMvzG if you wanna know more. Thanks to everyone for the support!— Robert Botha (@PandaTankSC2) January 14, 2014
Robert 'PandaTank' Botha, who is the first South African pro-gamer, began with Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Source, before migrating to Starcraft II where he arguably found his niche as a Protoss player. Last signed with CMStorm, PandaTank is now stepping down from the professional scene in order to start "thinking about what [his] next adventures in life will be." There's a long, rather touching e-mail in PandaTank's personal page for those interesting in reading his final testament.
