00Nation reportedly eying TACO as leo_drk replacement




According to a report by The Enemy, 00Nation has targeted Epitacio “TACO” de Melo as a potential replacement for the recently benched Leonardo “leo_drk” Oliveira. TACO currently plays for Godsent, where he’s been for well over two years.

The report states that following leo_drk’s removal at the start of May, 00Nation has considered various options within the Brazilian scene.

Sharks’ Lucas “Lucaozy” Neves and paiN’s Rodrigo “biguzera” Bittencourt were considered for the spot, as per Dust2.br.

However, the addition of TACO would bring a different dynamic to the team. Not only would the TACOLD duo be reinstated, as TACO would be reunited with former Luminosity, SK, and MIBR teammate Marcelo “coldzera” David, but he could also take over in-game leading duties.

The current iteration of 00Nation has struggled with the IGL position, as coldzera has been calling the shots thus far.

According to the report by The Enemy, this might not be the only move 00Nation makes, as Mario “malbsMd” Samayoa could also be leaving the roster soon.

Current Godsent players Eduardo “dumau” Wolkmer and Bruno “latto” Rebelatto are named as potentially joining 00Nation alongside TACO, but this seems preliminary.
