Selfless to sell organization and drop Overwatch team
Selfless—a relatively young esports organization that's fielded teams in several esports—is up for sale. The North American organization's owners are moving on to "opportunities that have arisen in the past few months."
The owners plan to sell off the brand if they can find interested buyers. They would just be buying the brand, however. The organization's teams will still part ways with the organization. Selfless' Overwatch roster, which has seen success in online tournaments, will not continue on as a whole, according to the announcement.
"With many other organizations releasing their rosters, and given talks we've had with those in the space, we were not able to sell our team as a whole to any other organization," Rattacasa said in a statement. "We absolutely expect to see our players competing in the upcoming Overwatch League, albeit with different logos." Rattacasa did not say whether Selfless' Overwatch players have been released into free agency or sold to other teams.
The fate of DPS players Lee "Carpe" Jae-hyeok and Jay "sinatraa" Won, flex players Jeff "emongg" Anderson and Mike "Midnight" Ryan, tank Bobby "Kresnik" Wiemer, and supports Michael "Michael3D" Wilbanks and Daniel "dhaK" Martinez Paz has yet to be revealed.
Carpe and Midnight were brought on to the roster in June, with Carpe making the trip from South Korea to join the team. They replaced former Selfless player Daniel "Dafran" Francesca after he was banned from all Blizzard-sanctioned events for the duration of competitive season five.
Selfless' Rocket League players have been sold to an unnamed organization, which will announce the acquisition itself on a later date. Smash Melee players Hugo "Hugs" Gonzalez and Joey "Lucky" Aldama have been released into free agency, with Killer Instinct player Damien "Fiyah Liger" Walton moving on as well.
Selfless released its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team in early April.
