Former Cloud9 star Jordan ‘n0thing’ Gilbert will be returning to action in a premier international CS:GO event with Mousesports at ESL One Belo Horizonte.

After three years of service with Cloud9’s CS:GO team, n0thing was benched in August of 2017 and went into a period of inactivity as he waited for his contract to expire.

Eventually he announced that he was a free agent in May of 2018 and the 27 year old has been exploring his options ever since, as well as playing with former teammates Sean ‘[email protected]’ Gares and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek in a fun ESEA Open team.

But on June 5th it was announced that the veteran player will get the chance to show that he still has what it takes to compete with the best of the best as he will be attending ESL One Belo Horizonte with Mousesports from June 13th – 17th.

Mousesports announced that their star AWPer, Tomáš ‘oskar’ Šťastný, will be missing out on the $200,000 event due to “personal reasons” but he will be returning for ESL One Cologne. 

The loss of oskar will be a painful one for the international team, as he has been the strongest statistical performer throughout 2018, but n0thing will see the event as a perfect opportunity to improve his stock in the eyes of potential new teams.

ESL One Belo Horizonte will feature hometown favorites SK Gaming and Não Tem Como as well two of the current best teams on Earth in the form of FaZe Clan and Team Liquid.

Space Soldiers, BIG, and Torqued round out the team list to create an impressive lineup for the event which will feature GSL style double elimination groups, best of three semifinals, and a best of five Grand Final.

Robin ‘ropz’ Kool has even taken to Twitter to say how excited he is about playing with n0thing in Brazil, as the North American star was one of the people he looked up to when he first started playing Counter-Strike.

Mousesports will field the following roster at the Brazilian event:

Chris ‘chrisJ’ de Jong
Robin ‘ropz’ Kool
Miikka ‘suNny’ Kemppi
Martin ‘STYKO’ Styk
Jordan ‘n0thing’ Gilbert (stand-in)

Four of the former 100 Thieves roster, their coach Kassad, and former Gen.G player BnTeT have joined EXTREMUM.


  • Ex-100T core join Extremum
  • BnTeT joins from Gen.G
  • Kassad joins from Cloud9’s Colossus

100 Thieves exited CS:GO in late 2020, as much of the North American scene petered out, and LAN events were canceled.

This left their talented roster, still full of potential, without an org. Justin ‘jks’ Savage joined compLexity, but the future for the rest of the ANZ lineup was unclear.

On January 24, Extremum revealed their new lineup, which also included Indonesian player Hansel ‘BnTeT’ Ferdinand, formerly of Gen.G and TyLoo, long regarded as one of the best Asian players.

Where will EXTREMUM play?

Kassad also rejoins his old teammates as coach. He had coached the core of this roster on both Renegades and 100 Thieves, before leaving for a stint with Cloud9.

Extremum will now work towards qualifying for the PGL Stockholm major, as well as competing in tournaments in Europe. HLTV reports they will travel to North America to compete in specific RMR (Regional Major Ranking) tournaments to earn their Major spot.
