The Norwegian esports organization, 00 Nation (Zero Zero Nation), has completed its CS:GO roster after being away from the competitive circuit for almost three months. This new lineup witnesses the reunion of two great players from Brazil, Marcelo "coldzera" David and Epitácio "TACO" de Melo, with the team's captaincy being handed over to the new player.

Other players signed by 00 Nation from GODSENT are Bruno "latto" Rebelatto and Eduardo "dumau" Wolkmer. The teenage duo from Brazil are promising talents who are adept at handling both a sniper and a rifle, providing great flexibility to the team.

Additionally, the coach and support staff from GODSENT has also made the move over to the new team. With the overhaul finally complete, it remains to be seen how this new roster goes on to perform from here on out.

TACO and coldzera reunite after three years to complete CS:GO roster overhaul for 00 Nation

It is yet another homecoming for the Brazilian fans after 'Imperial Esports' as two-time Major winners TACO and coldzera unite once again under the banner of 00 Nation for the first time since 2019.

00 Nation has failed to find success since its formation last year. Despite undergoing a lot of roster shuffles, it has been a disappointing ride for the organization so far. The team has not shown consistency even in tier two events and the final nail in the coffin was its failure to qualify for the recently concluded PGL Antwerp Major 2022.

Immediately after, the organization stopped competing and seriously considered its next move before committing to a complete overhaul.

According to Dust2 BR, 00 Nation originally wanted to retain only coldzera but a failed buyout by 9z Team to sign its former player Santino "try" Rigal resulted in him being retained by the Norwegian organization.

On top of this, a majority of the GODSENT lineup was signed which included three players, a coach, an analyst, and a team manager to complete its overhaul to step out on the competitive field once again to achieve better results.
