no_one steps down from Selfless

Selfless have announced that they bring in Christopher "cJ" Jones to the starting five as Matthew "no_one" Congdon will take a break.

The North American team Selfless have released a post on their website saying that Matthew "⁠no_one⁠" Congdon will step down from the active roster.


no_one has decided to take a break. 

To replace the 21-year-old player, Christopher "⁠cJ⁠" Jones will be promoted from the bench and he is from now on one of the starting five in Selfless.

no_one was a part of the team when they secured the last-chance spot in ESL Pro League after losing their relegation match. They won the last-chance spot with a 2-1 victory versus Splyce as Echo Fox were unable to field a line-up for the fifth season.

The owner of Selfless, Steve "⁠Ryu⁠" Rattacasa, stated on the website that it is no_one's own wish to take a break from competition:

Following our relegation matches, Matt indicated the desire to take a break from competition, and we feel this is best for all involved. We'd like to thank Matt for all his hard work and dedication, for being a great teammate, and for providing us with endless laughs and Smarties candy.
Replacing Matt in our starting five will be Chris "cJ-dA-K1nG" Jones, who has been promoted from a backup slot. cJ's is a very talented player with a strong rifle and good communication, and we're looking forward to competing with him this season.

One of the very first comments here was "why is this news if no one has stepped down. HLTV is baiting" Kind of sad that no one on HLTV (pun unintended) appreciates good humour

this news can be actualy consider as BAIT, HLTV :D
2017-02-24 14:35
This is pretty unfortunate for all involved :/ no_one had a lot of potential and I've never been terribly impressed by Mr. cJ_dA_K1nG
2017-02-24 14:40
Wow. Youre actually the first and probably last to post a normal post under this news. Im heavily impressed.
2017-02-24 14:45
cj has great aim actually but how he will handle bigger events is a mystery. smart head on him too
2017-02-25 06:52
he chose this nickname for that joke to see in hltv and mission accomplished

no scener?indeed. better then na cs?surely. Maybe we're not competiting,but atleast we dont have fake teams with bunch of bots inside,ehm complexity selfless etc. just look at EPL S5 NA
2017-02-25 18:37
optic is top 5 for 2 months. u still don't have a scene and evidently no brain either for thinking we only have shit teams...

Most of the NA teams are shit,fact that you have 1 solid team with 318mil people is not really legit considering the fact that my "no scene" country got only 4m
2017-02-26 10:55
when u have a half decent scene u can talk shit about other scenes. until then you're better off shutting your pie hole up. makes u look like a retard

You dont have half decent scene either dude...
2017-02-26 17:28
13 out of the 75 players in the top15 teams are from US / Canada. Would say that fulfills requirements for a decent scene. That being said I don't see a NA team cracking top 3 again for a while, but there will always be 2-3 in top 15 and at least 1 of which in top10.
2017-02-28 06:11
he will be putting all his time and focus into rank s
2017-02-24 14:51
no_one likes to get 2 other rank S players and play in regular pugs because rank S is too hard for him i guess.
2017-02-24 14:51
i didn't get what you said
2017-02-25 06:57
worse than tier10 european teams ...... Internet is not worth to type such a news

2017-02-24 16:43
Selfless went from Tier 1 NA with koosta. To tier 40 NA.
2017-02-24 18:04
"Matt indicated the desire to take a break from competition, and we feel this is best for all involved" Lost all respect for that statement Like just say "he left but we wanted him to leave" clowns trying to act like adults.

It could also be interpreted as "He wanted to leave and we know it wouldn't do anyone any good if we forced him to stay" ie tarik on CLG
2017-02-24 23:47
Could be, wording on these statements is usually amateur hour. But using open ended words like "indicated" leave too much room for interpretation. If he said "I want to take a break from comp. gaming and this team" then quote it. An indication can be as simple as a sigh after a loss.
