Xand joins NTC on loan | News
Não Tem Como sport an impressive lineup of players that have, in the past, demonstrated spectacular performances.
Lincoln “fnx” Lau was part of the legendary Luminosity Gaming / SK Gaming who were the second team in the history of CS:GO to secure back-to-back Major titles. João “felps” Vasconcellos played a crucial part in ex-SK’s impressive tournament run of 2017, where the team clocked in six tournament titles. Vito “kNg” Giuseppe was one of the larger cogs in ex-Immortals, massively contributing to his former organisation’s 2nd place at the PGL Major Krakow 2018. Bruno “BIT” Lima is a name familiar to Counter-Strike fans of old, having previously been part of prominent 1.6 teams such as MIBR, paiN Gaming and compLexity Gaming. Last but not least, the team houses up-and-coming Brazilian pro, Marcelo “chelo” Cespedes, himself previously part of paiN and Luminosity.
Despite the loaded lineup, the roster has been unable to produce results of note at international events, most recently falling short at the Americas Minor 2018, falling to eUnited in the group stage. Further, previous events also saw group stage exits, leading to discussions surrounding a roster shuffle.
A recent Tweet from YeaH! Gaming suggested that NTC have secured a loan deal for Alexandre “xand” Zizi, who will be joining the starting roster. It was not revealed who the player will be replacing on the starting roster; however, according to reports the player in question will either be fnx or bit.
