Ninja and his Team Time In

Why Ninja Quits Valorant Competitive?
According to Ninja lack of success of Time In is not the reason for quitting the growing Valorant competitive scene, he took this decision to balance his content creation and Real-life easier. In a recent stream, Ninja stated “I feel like it’s such a big weight lifted off my shoulders, dude. Because, now I can stream whenever I want, I can get off right now if I wanted to, literally. I’ve been streaming for five hours. I could hop off right now and spend the rest of the night with Jess. I would have had to hop off 26 minutes ago for scrims if I was still competing.” Tyler “Ninja” Blevins added, “My whole life right now is much more open and I feel like I’m not weighing myself down”. Fans should understand and respect his decision.
