The South American CS:GO roster of 00 Nation (ZeroZero Nation) is finally complete as the organization decides to retain both Leonardo "leo_drk" Oliveira and Vinicius "v$m" Moreira. They have also signed João "righi" Righi as their new head coach to guide them through the 2022 season.

00 Nation entered the competitive circuit in the last quarter of 2021 with a complete Brazilian lineup. However, the team failed to find its footing which resulted in a terrible run comprising of 10 losses and not a single win.

This forced the management to implement a major roster overhaul for the 2022 season, resulting in the acquisition of Marcelo "coldzera" David as their centerpiece for the upcoming roster. The 27-year-old has helped shape the current lineup and will be guiding them both inside and outside the server.

00 Nation completes its CS:GO roster for the 2022 season

00 Nation was acquired by Norwegian esports organization Nordavind in July 2021. They had picked up a Brazilian roster (O Plano) last year which crashed and burned during its three months tenure, showing no sign of growth or brilliance.

The organization quickly realized the team's shortcomings and started making early changes in preparation of the 2022 season. The overhaul which started in December last year has finally been completed as 00 Nation confirmed its final two players along with their coach.

  • Leonardo "leo_drk" Oliveira - Rifler / Entry Fragger

  • Vinicius "v$m" Moreira - Rifler / AWP

  • Marcelo "coldzera" David - IGL

  • Mario "malbsMd" Samayoa - Rifler / Entry Fragger

  • Santino "try" Rigal - AWP

  • João "righi" Righi - Coach

Veteran Brazilian CS:GO player, coldzera, was picked as the centerpiece of this new team following his announcement that he is not part of the last dance project. 00 Nation signed him as their shot caller and as someone better equipped to guide their young and fairly inexperienced lineup.

According to a tweet by 00 Nation, the new roster will be seen in action and debut within two weeks time. The team will surely be hoping for a good performance to kick start their 2022 campaign.
