BOOM signs INTZ's former CS:GO roster to compete in ESL Pro League

Indonesian esports organization BOOM has acquired the former Brazilian INTZ CS:GO roster, the organization announced today.

Gustavo “yeL” Knittel, Ricardo “boltz” Prass, Marcelo “chelo” Cespedes, Bruno “shz” Martinelli, and head coach Alessandro “Apoka” Marcucci officially parted ways with INTZ on Feb. 18 following weeks of speculation. At that time, Apoka explained that the team had received an offer from “a different project.”

The Brazilians have been heavily linked to BOOM and the move was previously reported by ESPN Esports Brasil. It became clear that BOOM had signed yeL and crew after ESL revealed the 24 teams that will compete in the 11th season of ESL Pro League, which included BOOM as one of the teams qualified through ESEA MDL, a competition that the Brazilians won last year.

The team has picked the experienced João “felps” Vasconcellos to be its fifth player. The former MIBR player has played for Luminosity Gaming and Team oNe on loan since he was benched by MIBR in June 2019. His loan contract with Team oNe was terminated on Jan. 31 and he’s been out of action ever since.
