INTZ close in on NoTag - Report

September 20th, 2018 22:50

INTZ are currently in advanced talks with NoTag, according to a report from ESPN Esports Brasil.

The Brazilian organisation, who have a long history in Counter-Strike, are looking to send the team to North America, either to Canada or the USA, to compete in qualifiers and online leagues.

One of the main tournaments in which the team would be competing is the ESL Pro League, with the spot that SK Gaming still retain despite having lost their highly-successful squad to MIBR in June.

felps & co. close to joining INTZ

Headlined by João "felps" Vasconcellos and Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe, the team were at one point heavily linked with a move to SK and even bootcamped at the German organisation's office in the German city of Cologne. But SK have remained tightlipped on their future plans for Counter-Strike despite the game being a staple for the organisation for more than a decade.

After a series of poor results on LAN, the team replaced Bruno "bit" Lima and Lincoln "fnx" Lau with Alexandre "xand" Zizi and João "horvy" Horvath, and changed their name from Não Tem Como to NoTag as the NTC brand is owned by the former Luminosity and SK veteran.

If the move comes the fruition, it is unknown what will happen with the current INTZ roster, which has qualified for Gamers Club Masters 2018, the next big LAN event to be held in Brazil.

NoTag have the following line-up:

Brazil João "felps" Vasconcellos
Brazil Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe
Brazil Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes
Brazil João "horvy" Horvath
Brazil Alexandre "xand" Zizi (on loan)

Brazil Alessandro "Apoka" Marcucci (coach)

I dont see this team going anywhere, chelo, horvy and xand are tier4 players without any experience and KNG is a drunk party clown. I hope some good team will pick up my boy felps (best brazilians player by far).

I agree. xand and felps are a scary duo to be up against.
2018-09-21 00:16
'potential' he has been in the scene for years, he played with FalleN and fer back in the OG br lineups in early CSGO
2018-09-21 03:20
Actually he played with zqk, boltz, steel, coldzera, felps, taco, but not with fallen and fer.
2018-09-21 13:59
I am positive I have seen tournaments where he has played with FalleN, whether as a stand-in or otherwise

The only problem in this line is horvy. Xand could improve, kng has an unpredictable temper, but knows how to play. Chelo has a future. Will take long, but could work.
2018-09-20 23:09
Chelo is tier2 with potential to tier1, my friend :(

He made slight apparitions in scenario, I think it's because he lives in Portugal. Answering your question, yes he's the igl and he's someone who have a lot to prove, a lot of people hype him because he's performance in esea and faceit (basically a onliner)

Why is people commenting so negatively about the team? They definitely have tier 2 potential on their lineup, but some of you guys comment as if they were setting Major goals and top 4s in tier 1 tournaments. Pretty sure even themselves know that their goal can not go any higher than getting to play a few qualifiers and try to attend some tier 2 lans. Would be unrealistic if anyone from that team thought they could take a peek at the top 10/15.
