Today, we are announcing that the Selfless ownership team (myself and Brad) will be stepping away from the Selfless organisation to pursue opportunities that have arisen in the past few months. While the details of said opportunities cannot be shared at the moment, they are fascinating and more will be unveiled as time moves on.
We are very proud of what we’ve built here, and would love to see the brand live on, so if you or someone you know would be interested in carrying it forward, please contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). This would make a great opportunity for the right person or group, and I’m more than happy to spend the necessary time to ensure it ends up in the right set of hands.
Selfless Gaming formed in February 2016 by former CSGO coach Steve “Ryu” Rattacasa previously of Enemy eSports. The CSGO players of Enemy eSports contracts all expired and joined Ryu’s venture into creating the new organization Selfless Gaming. Since then Selfless Gaming went on to have a successful Overwatch, Rocket League, Smash Bros and Killer instinct divisions. As a result, many of the players that were at Selfless currently are now looking for new opportunities elsewhere.
So what of the teams?
Under those circumstances, Selfless Gaming Rocket League team has found new ownership. Confirmation of transfer with an unnamed team which has been yet to be announced.
Melee players Hugo “Hugs” Gonzalez and Joey “Lucky” Aldama have also both finished their contract. As a result, Hugs and Lucky are free agents looking for new teams to represent.
Again, Killer Instinct player Damien “Fiyah Liger” Walton has also seen out his contract. Killer Instinct as a game getting smaller and smaller each year. Fiyah Liger seems to be on the verge of switching games in conjunction with Selfless disbanding.
Finally, the Overwatch Team. Selfless Gaming has one of the top Overwatch teams in North America and has been desperately trying to find an organization willing to bring the team into the up and coming to Overwatch League. Unfortunately for Selfless Overwatch Roster, there are many teams still waiting to see what the Overwatch League will turn out to be. Consequently, this has resulted in the roster completely disbanding and finding new avenues.
Overwatch Update – RT please

Regrettable news for an organization which was on the cusp of being up in the greats. The players of Selfless Gaming are all strong competitors in each game they represented. For the mean time, it does not look like Selfless Gaming has any current buyers or investors that want to the organization itself. As a result, it will most likely cease into existence shortly. Many of the players have been given timescales to when they should be moving on from Selfless support and facilities. Hopefully, It won’t be long for these players to find new organizations and carry on what Selfless Gaming always wanted to achieve.
