NEKIZ joins 00NATION
00NATION announced signing of Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato. The 27-year-old Brazilian esports athlete will replace Leonardo "n9xtz" Santos, who departed the club late last month.
NEKIZ has been competing for paiN since the end of 2019. Together with the team, he won DreamHack Open January 2021 North America and ESL Challenger League Season 41 North America, as well as took part in PGL Major Stockholm 2021 (20-22nd place) and BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 (17-19th place).
However, Schenato recently departed paiN's starting five to start looking for a new team.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for 00NATION, as the roster intended to leave the organization and found their own club, as Dust2 Brasil previously reported.
00NATION's current lineup is:
Bruno "latto" Rebelatto
Eduardo "dumau" Wolkmer
Marcelo "coldzera" David
Lucas "nqz" Soares
Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato
Olavo "chucky" Napoleão (coach)
