The co-owners of the esports organization Selfless Gaming, Steve “Ryu” Rattacasa and Bradford Rajani, announced Friday they will step away from the organization and are looking for people interested in purchasing its brand.
In the announcement, Ryu wrote he and Rajani would leave “to pursue opportunities that have arisen in the past few months.” He wrote that anyone interested in continuing the Selfless brand can send an email to the organization so that it “ends up in the right set of hands.”
As for the various teams under the Selfless brand, the Rocket League roster of Timi “Timi” Falodun, Braden “Pluto” Schenetzki and Chris “Dappur” Mendoza — which was recently announced as part of the FaceIt X Games Rocket League Invitational — has already found a new organization that will be announced soon. Super Smash Bros players Joey “Lucky” Aldama and Hugo “HugS” Gonzalez are free agents effective immediately as they have finished their contract terms.
The organization has tried to sell its Overwatch team but has not been able to do so to this point.
“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,” Ryu wrote. He did not specify if any of the players had been sold or if they were free agents.
