00Nation Looks To Rebuild With GODSENT Quartet

Brazilian Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team 00Nation is reportedly looking to rebuild its lineup with four GODSENT players.

Brazilian Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team 00Nation is reportedly looking to rebuild its lineup with four GODSENT players. The decision follows 00Nations’ failed attempt to qualify for PGL Major Antwerp.

00Nation Looking To Start Fresh

After failing to achieve the goals the Brazilian CS:GO team has set for itself, 00Nation is looking to completely rebuild its roster. According to recent reports, 00Nation will continue Marcelo “coldzera” David as the only carryover from the former lineup.

If the current plans come through, 00Nation will add four GODSENT players in, Eduardo “dumau” Wolkmer, Bruno “latto” Rebelatto, Bruno “b4rtiN” Câmara, and Epitácio “TACO” de Melo. Moreover, 00Nation is reportedly targeting GODSENT coach Olavo “cky” Napoleão and assistant coach Alan “aDr” Riveros.

The team shake-up would see GODSENT depleted, leaving Henrique “HEN1” Teles as the only remaining player of the GODSENT squad. On the other side, the move would see TACO reunite with coldzera, who he played with at SK Gaming in 2016-2018.

Drastic Changes

The drastic roster moves by 00Nation started at the beginning of May when the team parted ways with Leonardo “leo_drk” Oliveira, who got benched following a streak of disappointing performances.

Now, three of his teammates in Vinicius “v$m” Moreira, Mario “malbsMd” Samayoa, and Santino “try” Rigal will follow as they’re all expected to get cut from the team in the coming days.

Although a huge change for 00Nation, it is hardly unexpected, mainly due to the team’s lack of success.

00Nation was formed in 2021, but the team completely rebuilt its lineup in January. At the time, 00Nation signed coldzera, malbsMd, and try, who joined v$s, who was with the team since September 2021.

Even though the Brazilian team has achieved some success over the 2022 season, their achievements were limited mostly to lesser tournaments.

The team kicked off the year with a 16th-18th place finish at Pinnacle Winter Series #2 but successfully qualified for American RMR with a third-place finish at PGL Major Antwerp 2022: American RMR – South American Open Qualifier #1.

In March 00Nation also made it to the finals of RTP Arena Cup 2022, but that would be their last notable tournament run. Across the next two months, 00Nation failed to make much of a splash.

They finished Pinnacle Cup III in 19th-20th-place and did not make it out of the group stage at OMEN WGR European Challenge 2022. However, the team’s biggest disappointment happened in April, when 00Nation finished PGL Major Antwerp 2022: American RMR in 12th-14th, thus failing to qualify for the Major.

00Nation has not played a single official match since. Even though the team has not hinted at any major roster moves, it’s hardly shocking to see the Norwegian organization decide to take that step ahead of the second part of the season.

Still Up In The Air

The Norwegian esports organization has yet to submit an official bid for the GODSENT players, so the move, while it’s likely to happen, is yet to be set in stone. Moreover, it’s unclear whether 00Nation will complete the move before the ESL Challenger Valencia, where GODSENT will compete at the start of July.

There are also question marks above HEN1 and his future, as he will remain the only active player on GODSENT’s lineup following the acquisition. Meanwhile, try and malbsMd are reportedly nearing a return to their former teams in 9z and TeamOne, respectively.

If 00Nation completes the deal, the organization will sign the current 27thhighest-rated CS:GO team in the world and the fifth-highest rated team from South America, behind FURIA, Imperial, paiN, and MiBR.

Although hardly one of the top teams in the region, GODSENT have achieved plenty of success this year. Most notably, GODSENT placed top-four at BLAST Premier: Spring American Showdown 2022 and have recently won ESL Challenger at DreamHack Valencia 2022: North American Qualifier.
