Nick "nitr0" Cannella has moved from a stand-in role on Torqued to the more stable berth of Denial eSports.
Wish it didn't have to go down like this, but I am now fragging for @DenialEsports for future events! :) I wish the best of luck to FugLy!— Nick Cannella (@nitr0cs) December 16, 2014
The roster change was also confirmed on Denial's official Twitter. As mentioned earlier today, nitr0 has shown promise during high profile matches and the move is no doubt meant to secure his spot in a rising North American roster.
Speaking of the change, Denial player Todd "anger" Williams had this to say:
"It's a hard decision to do this but we feel nitr0 will be a better player in the long run. With him being an ex-teammate and winning the John Wick tournament with us we know that he will mesh well with our team already. This is by far the hardest decision this team has ever had to make but this is an opportunity that we can't pass up. FugLy is a great player and has a bright future ahead of him and I wish him the best of luck," Williams told HLTV.org.
nitr0 will debut tonight in Denial's MLG X Games Qualifier match-up against LunatiK. He will be joined by another recent addition to Denial's roster, Eric "adreN" Hoag. Denial's line-up will therefore look as follows:
