Karma Retires From Professional Call of Duty

As a surprise to most, if not all of the Call of Duty community, at 10:00 PM eastern time today on June 3rd, 2020, the Seattle Surge tweeted that Damon Barlow, also known as Karma, has retired from Call of Duty. Karma is without a doubt one of the best players to have ever played the game of Call of Duty. He is arguably one of the best first person shooter players of all time. He is affectionately known as “Karma Three Rings” for his three Call of Duty World Championships. Seattle released this tweet:

“Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow has chosen to retire from competitive play. Congratulations to without question the greatest of all time.” – Seattle Surge

“I would like to thank everyone that helped me on my journey. First and foremost to my wife Holly and my daughter Bella who motivate and inspire me every day.

To my teammates throughout the years including my current teammates on the Seattle Surge. To all the fans that have followed me throughout my entire career from my three championship season through to today with those in the city of Seattle I’d like to say thank you for your support as I enter the next chapter in my life.

I wish all the best to the Surge organization and thank them for their understanding and guidance through this tough decision.” – Damon “Karma” Barlow.

Later Karma went on to tweet that this was something he needed to do a while ago. That the Call of Duty game wasn’t really catered to him. He didn’t enjoy running around with an mp5 and just had no desire to get on and play the game. He said that he thought he was pretty bad and that Seattle could do better without him. He said it reminded him of how the Call of Duty: World War 2 season ended.

Then he tweeted that he would not be back from retirement. He said that he doesn’t think he can play a new Call of Duty title for more than a month before tiring of it.

After that he tweeted that it was his decision and had nothing to do with Seattle or the squad. He said, “It was my choice this time and I’m happy with it.”

Esports Draft is still adding statistics to the app and websites so at the time of this writing they may be incomplete. However this is a table of Karma’s statistics and his player details:
