Clinton 'Fear' Loomis has announced his retirement from competitive play to becomes the new Evil Geniuses coach.

The announcement was confirmed on the Evil Geniuses Twitter feed and website. Fear stated his retirement was due in equal parts to long-term medical issues with his elbow and to having met all of the goals he wanted to accomplish as a professional player. 

Today, I'm announcing my retirement from competitive Dota. I have been living my dream of being a professional gamer for over a decade now, and in that time I've accomplished each of the goals I placed for myself and for EG Dota. Now, I have to pursue a new goal - getting healthy. I still have a passion for Dota and for competing, but the long term health of my arm has to come first. Thank you all for your support. - Clinton 'Fear' Loomis

Known for his immense hero pool, team spirit, and willingness to play any position, Fear has been one of the most consistent players in all of professional eSports. His achievements with EG in Dota 2 are numerous, including 1st place finishes at the Summit 4 and The International 5, as well as top 3 finishes at the Frankfurt Major, Shanghai Major, and The International 6.
