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.
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:
Leonardo "leo_drk" Oliveira (bench)
João "righi" Righi (coach)
