League Of Legends is an action strategy game that has been quite popular in recent times. The game has a varied fan base, and seeing any top player retire is tough for our fans. Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao, one of the best the game has ever seen or will see, recently announced his retirement.
While this came to us as a shock, he has not been doing too well physically. He insisted that his ailment is due to some chronic damage. He also stated that it is a decision influenced by persisting injuries that have become unbearable.
Back in 2012, Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao, started his career with Royal Never Give Up. It is an incredible achievement, as well as a testament to his dedication that he retired with the very same team. He is, perhaps, going to be remembered as a shining beacon of loyalty when it comes to League of Legends.

The Twitter post by Royal Never Give Up was quite emotional and heartbreaking. It feels like the end of an era, the culmination of a journey. Calling Uzi the heart and soul of the organization was a beautiful way to respect him. His immense contribution towards the team and his game make him the greatest of all time.
For those who do not know, the bot lane is perhaps the most important aspect of League Of Legends. Uzi was undoubtedly one of the best, if not the greatest when it came to bot lane. However, all these years of dedication also gave birth to severe health issues.

Medical issues indicated that Uzi had a hand, shoulder, and feet injuries. This has been a problem for a while; he wanted to quit in 2015 itself. While he did not, the issues were persistent; he was losing feeling in his legs as well.
League Of Legends fans will always remember Uzi for being the best player of all time. We do not know for certain if he can ever make a comeback in his lifetime. However, we can only wish him a speedy recovery and good health for now. Get well soon, champ.
