Official: INTZ sign NoTag
The Brazilian organization have acquired NoTag, who will be traveling to Canada where the team will reside.
The move confirms earlier reports about the organization looking to send a team to North America to compete in qualifiers and online leagues — as the team will indeed participate in the ESL Pro League Season 8 after inheriting SK's spot.
Originally, João "felps" Vasconcellos & co. were close to linking up with SK and even bootcamped at the German organization's offices in Cologne, but talks eventually went silent, leaving the then Não Tem Como without support.
After a series of lackluster performances, the team underwent changes and went their separate ways with Lincoln "fnx" Lau and Bruno "bit" Lima, adding Alexandre "xand" Zizi and João "horvy" Horvath into the mix, but sorrows continued as the team failed to qualify for IEM Chicago over Luminosity.
With the acquisition, INTZ are set to compete in the ESL Pro League Season 8, which begins October 2nd with their first match against MIBR, although it is uncertain if the team will take SK's slot in ECS Season 6.
Also, according to Dust2.us, the Brazilian organization intends their continued support of their local Brazilian lineup, who will be playing under a new name that has not yet been announced.
INTZ' new roster looks as follows:
