Jordan Gilbert known as ‘n0thing’ is a dedicated CS:GO gamer with C9, playing the role of a lurker. He started out his career with CheckSix Gaming, making a name in the esports scene to becoming the experienced gamer we know today.
Nothing is very experienced and makes time to stream, teach and compete in Counter-Strike:Global-Offensive events. Gilbert invented the Flashbang Dance in celebration of winning esports tournaments.
Where it all began:
When Jordan was about nine, his older brother introduced him to Counter-Strike 1.6. What attracted him to video games was different tactics to ultimately win the match. He liked gaming so much he would practice ten to twelve hours a day to be the best player.
