Former T1 support Lee "Wolf" Jae-wan announced he is retiring after seven years of competitive League of Legends.

The two-time world champion said that he changed his mind countless times before ultimately deciding to retire as a pro player.

"I've thought about this over and over again," Wolf told Inven Global. "I've even once had a change of heart couple hundred times a day, and that's on whether or not I should continue to play as a pro. Long story short, I've decided to retire as a pro. I'm here to say that I think my time is over."

Wolf joined T1 in 2013 and went on to win the League of Legends World Championship in 2015 and 2016 while teamed with legendary mid laner Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok.

Wolf told Inven Global that he has been dealing with depression and an anxiety disorder, among other mental conditions, since 2017. He was told by a psychologist that his conditions will "only get better if (he steps) away from this environment."

While he won't be playing competitively in the near future, Wolf said he will consider coaching.
