paiN announce North America move

paiN will soon move to Canada to continue their development, it has been announced.

In a video posted on paiN's Twitter, coach Bruno "ellllll" Ono explained that the move is likely to happen in April and that, as a result, the team will not be able to take part in the Clutch event circuit, which encompasses the Brasileirão, LA League and GC Masters.

The move to Canada will allow paiN to take the next step in their development after an eventful year that saw them win six domestic titles and attend one Big Event, StarSeries i-League Season 7.

paiN will move to Canada in approximately three months

Headlined by former Luminosity duo Vinicios "PKL" Coelho and Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato, paiN also boast one of Brazil's hottest prospects in Rodrigo "biguzera" Bittencourt, who was recently praised by MIBR captain Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo. The team will take part in the upcoming WESG Brazil Finals, where they will take on INTZ, Sharks and RED Canids for a single spot at the Latin American regional finals.

paiN are the second Brazilian team to announce an impending move to North America in 2020, following in the footsteps of YeaH!, who have in their ranks former members of Sharks, TeamOne, Imperial and paiN.

The Brazilian team have the following line-up:

Brazil Vinicios "PKL" Coelho
Brazil Paulo "land1n" Felipe
Brazil Wesley "hardzao" Lopes
Brazil Rodrigo "biguzera" Bittencourt
Brazil Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato

NEKiZ had so much hope a year ago as well. It's truly a shame he's been held back by poor management and inefficient teams.
2020-01-21 07:33
Why Canada? The weather is horrendous for South American standards. Wouldn't Cali, Arizona, Texas, or Florida be more optimal locations? Common locations for team hosting already in the US? I don't even think Luminosity (a Canadian esports org & encompassing brand of Canadian Overwatch team, the Vancouver Titans) hosted their own CSGO teams in Canada. Weird move.

Why would you? You are not the solid top1 inside Brasil, it's a waist of money imo...
