Case sign 15-year-old prospect Snowzin
Case have taken a gamble on one of Brazil's hottest youngsters.
Case have announced the signing of João "Snowzin" Vinicius. The 15-year-old will fill the void left by Leonardo "leo_drk" Oliveira, who was benched by the organization in February.
The move comes after Case failed to qualify for the BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 South America RMR in February, falling in the open qualifier stage. The squad was eliminated by ODDIK in the Round of 16 in their first attempt and lost even sooner the second time around.
Snowzin has so far only competed for two academy squads in Los Grandes Academy and Young Gods. He played 41 maps during his two stints and averaged a 0.93 rating, but his incredibly young age makes him a hot prospect for the future.
He joins a Case team that has struggled for results in recent times, sporting an 11.1% win rate in the last three months and suffering last-place exits at events such as European Pro League Season 5 and Wandercon 2023.
The squad led by ex-Liquid member Lucas "steel" Lopes is currently not slated to attend any events featured on HLTV, meaning their newest recruit will have ample time to bed in his new team.
Case are now:
Lucas "steel" Lopes
Rodrigo "RCF" Figueiredo
Yan "yepz" Pedretti
Lucas "honda" Cano
João "Snowzin" Vinicius
