leo_drk benched in 00NATION

00NATION plan on helping the 22-year-old find a new home.

Confirming the recent report from Dust2.br, Leonardo "⁠leo_drk⁠" Oliveira has officially been moved to the bench of 00NATION, the team announced on Friday. The player had been with the organization since September of 2021 when the brand was created and signed O PLANO.

In a video on Twitter, leo_drk spoke about the decision, saying that his roles changed when the new-look lineup formed at the start of 2021. He also goes on to say that the results were not what the team wanted, and led to his move to the bench.

leo_drk is still looking to compete

Since the additions of Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David, Mario "⁠malbsMd⁠" Samayoa, and Santino "⁠try⁠" Rigal, 00NATION has failed to live up to expectations, struggling in many lower tier cups while competing in Europe. The biggest disappointment however came in the form of the recent Americas Regional Major Ranking tournament. Despite defeating Liquid 16-8 in their first round game, 00NATION really let down in the rest of the event, going on to lose the remainder of their matches.

According to the aforementioned report from Dust2.br, the Norwegian organization are targeting multiple players as a replacement including Rodrigo "⁠biguzera⁠" Bittencourt from paiN and Lucas "⁠Lucaozy⁠" Neves from Sharks.

Here is 00NATION's current lineup:

Brazil Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira
Brazil Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David
Guatemala Mario "⁠malbsMd⁠" Samayoa
Argentina Santino "⁠try⁠" Rigal

Brazil Leonardo "⁠leo_drk⁠" Oliveira (bench)

Brazil João "⁠righi⁠" Righi (coach)

Might be crazy to say, but maybe he should look for an English speaking team? Last I remember his English is actually quite good and for a time he was a really solid rifler

They actually do, they just lack a decent IGL. Try and malbs are one of the best talents out there.

You can't have potential when you lack one of the most important pieces in a team, and one that's very hard to find, which is an IGL. You contradicted yourself. The team has two potentially great talents who'd be better elsewhere. 00natiom would at least need to replace another player.

They already have a high ceiling, full of potential. A lamborghini without wheels is still a lamborghini, it just needs good wheels and a good driver to be one of the best in the world. But, in general, I agree with you, someone needs to go. It would be nice if coldzera gone, but it's his project, so...

00nation isn't a Lamborghini without wheels though... Far from it. They have two interesting prospects, with a lot of potential. 00nation isn't Faze without karrigan, so your analogy doesn't apply here.

If they won't get a better IGL they won't get anywhere, fragging was not the problem. I'm really sceptical about this project under coldzera.

He was a great entry fragger in the beginning of this team and thats what he excelled at. Then they brought in Malbs who is also great but this forces Leo to move over to the support role. He is not cut for this role, hopefully he can find a good brazilian team that wants an entry fragger

When did he stop being leo_drunky and change his name?
