Insomniuhh withdraws from ESEA Next Big Caster

The California-based caster has opted out of the competition, leaving only two contestants remaining.

Matthew "Insomniuhh" Cota has announced over social media that he has withdrawn from the ESEA Next Big Caster challenge, which is currently in its second stage as the Global Challenge draws closer.

The caster did not share the reasons for why he has taken himself out of the running, though now-deleted tweets point towards personal reasons. Insomniuhh may also have been worried that, should he win, he will share the fate of the competition's previous winner.

This is the second iteration of the ESEA Next Big Caster challenge, with Insomniuhh having been in the running for both. His withdrawal leaves the field at a scant two:

  • United States Mike "DarfMike" Winnick
  • United States Mitch "MagicHelmetTV" Langford

On the line for the winner of the challenge is the opportunity to work at the upcoming MDL Global Challenge for Season 29, where eight teams from around the world will face off for their share of $50,000. It is expected that ESL Pro League Relegation will take place there as well, as it has in previous years.

People can't have IRL issues? This article is speculating that he left cause of betting...just sensationalist non news. Such quality journalism...if they bothered doing any research they could have found the reason. The only thing they did was look at his twitter. It's not like he was hiding anything. He publicly talked about stuff on his general chat on discord where anyone can join. Literally we where talking about it yesterday. There is nothing to require him to justify his decisions to the whole world on twitter.

I don't think anything I've ever done has been newsworthy.

Cause they are lazy and have nothing better to do than to write bs implying that a caster is match-fixing.

"Insomniuhh may also have been worried that, should he win, he will share the fate of the competition's previous winner."
Stronglegs got banned cause of betting on games that where match fixed...meaning they think there is a chance he is also doing the same and covering his butt. But nah lets just post this article without even asking him his reason.

Clearly you know so much more about what we did or didn't do, than the people actually working here. Maybe I should hire you!

All I know is that you didn't reach out to me about this, despite knowing I've been struggling with depression, as you were one of the handful of people that followed my private twitter that I used to vent before I deactivated it earlier this year.
