SmithZz and day0s part ways with Nakama
Nakama have announced via their official Twitter account the departures of Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux and Paul "day0s" Niel. Insufficient results were cited as the reason for parting ways.
SmithZz and day0s had been a part of Nakama since the roster was formed by Richard "shox" Papillon in January of this year. They were removed from the team shortly after the French were eliminated from the qualifying cycle for BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023, thus falling short to reach their main goal.
Initially, the 34-year-old SmithZz returned to the professional scene only to participate at the qualifier for the Major and subsequently was to enter the coaching staff.
Shortly, Nakama will share information on the lineup for the rest of the season. They have to decide on new players before the beginning of March, when ESL Championnat National Spring 2023 France starts.
Nakama's current lineup is:
Richard "shox" Papillon
Jeremy "Kursy" Gast
Ryan "Neityu" Aubry
Boris "flex0r" Latry (coach)
