Selfless Gaming was an American Esports organization that closed when the Owners and Management left to pursue other opportunities.[1]

History[edit]

Unique Style and Success[edit]

They were involved in the Overwatch scene since near the beginning of Overwatch Esports. They found success in early 2017 by using an aggressive style and composition, later dubbed the Selfless Comp, to overwhelm their opponents using sheer mechanical skill.

The comp usually consisted of Soldier 76, Tracer, Roadhog, Reinhardt, Ana and Lucio. The team would frequently spawn camp their opponents, both on defense and offense, leaving their Reinhardt player Kresnik to push the cart alone on Escort and Hybrid maps. They pioneered this comp and strategy in early 2017.[2]

Despite their success, they would frequently place second in events, never being able to defeat Rogue. The two teams played each other several times in Alienware Monthly Melee finals, but Selfless could never find victory over the French team.

Contenders Season Zero and Disband[edit]

On June 8th, 2017, dafran was banned from Contenders Season Zero[3]. On top of losing one the star players in the west, the meta had changed to include more Winston and D.Va, heroes the inflexible Selfless had not been used to playing.[4] These issues continued to plague the team, and they team failed to qualify for Contenders Season 1.

When Selfless the organization announced their closure, it was announced that the roster would not be sticking together, choosing instead to become free agents.[1]
