Three weeks after joining the playArt organization with his former mandic teammates, Renato "nak" Nakano has been forced to go inactive and will be replaced by Eduardo "shemp" Ferreira.
On playArt's website it's stated that Nakano has reached a part in his life where he has to prioritize studies over gaming. He's previously been able to balance the two, but his new internship hasn't left him with enough time to practice and travel, so he has decided to leave the team. It is not known whether it is temporary or permanent.
His replacement is Ferreira who is a former member of GameCrashers, with whom he placed 4th at WCG Pan-America last year. He was also a part of FireGamers last fall along with Nakano, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and Bruno "bruno" Ono.
According to playArt's website Ferreira was added because his playstyle is very similar to Nakano's which will make the adaptation easier.

It is currently not known whether or not playArt is planning on attending any international events in the near future, but given their ZOWIE sponsorship and player change, you can expect some activity from the Brazilians.
