LCK bot lane legend Kim "PraY" Jong-in said on a stream Saturday that he is retiring from competitive gaming.

"I'm not confident enough to do well," PraY said on his personal stream explaining his decision, according to Inven Global.

PraY said in December that he would to take a break from competitive League of Legends by sitting out the 2019 League Champions Korea spring split.

The 25-year-old Korean has won Champions Korea with three different teams, and announced on Twitter late last year that he was "looking into a lot of different teams in many countries" after having his contract with Kingzone DragonX terminated.

Although he indicated he received good offers in free agency, PraY said he wanted to take a break, while stopping short at the time of saying he was retiring.

"I wanted to take some rest," he reportedly said at the time during a stream on AfreecaTV, as translated by Inven Global. "I'm willing to be unemployed. Well, as long as a team takes me while I'm sleeping ... So, am I retiring? Well, let's see you guys in summer."
