INTZ part ways with team
In a video posted on Twitter, the Brazilian coach thanked INTZ for their support and explained that the team received an offer from "a different project" after announcing at the end of 2019 that they were open to the idea of joining a new organisation.
The announcement came just minutes after ESL revealed that the team would be playing in the next edition of the Pro League as BOOM Esports, confirming a previous report from ESPN Esports Brasil linking the Brazilians with a move to the Indonesian organisation, who are mostly known for their Dota 2 squad.
According to the same report, the team turned to MIBR benched player João "felps" Vasconcellos to fill their vacancy following xand's departure. The former SK player has been assessing his options since his TeamOne loan was terminated after just one month with the squad.
Formerly known as NoTag, the Brazilian team spent 15 months in INTZ's ranks, taking the organisation to their first-ever Major last year, when they qualified for the StarLadder Major via the Minor Play-In. Gustavo "yel" Knittel's troops went 0-3 in the New Challengers Stage in what turned out to be Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe's final tournament for INTZ before joining MIBR.
After being relegated from ESL Pro League in Season 9, the team reclaimed a spot in the prestigious tournament the following season after winning the ESEA MDL division, beating North American side Riot Squad in a five-map final.
INTZ had the following squad:
