He didn't like the way the game was going.
Why did Ninja retire in H5?
You're completely wrong about his passion, he has said many times that he way prefers to play Halo (and you can tell by his mood & reactions when he plays), he just doesn't like Halo 5 or how 343 completely ignored pro suggestions for the entire first year at least (anyone remember 1-shot-kill spartan charge with the speed boost? LOL).Unknown wrote:Why? Because he has ZERO passion for Halo anymore and the only type of "BR" he will be using is Battle Royale.
If he ever decides to play Infinite on stream when it releases, it will boost our community tenfold. People will start flocking like animals.
I hope OP reads that, I don't think Ninja left with any kind of message to 343 Industries about deliverables. I want to say it may have added to that stress at competing as an top AM player in a toxic rostermania scene where no one really teams with each other for long and trash talks all the time. H1Z1, PUBG and the BR genre created a more solitude avenue for him to grow, because most in the AM community (This is players who are really good at the game that compete but don't place as high) pulled him down.UnsafeCodered wrote:Ninja left halo a few years back to start playing h1z2, then pubg and then fortnite he was gone for about 2 years so it really wasn’t recent when he left halo.
I'm going to say that this isn't something that ever happened, unless you have a source you can cite to back up that claimBlainzz wrote:RI remember something happening in the past, He was talking to a 343 employee about something, I don’t remember what, Well The employee essentially told him to screw off. So ever since then he hasn’t played the game.
