Nuovo has signed the team formerly playing as Infernum Gaming. They currently sit in eighth place on the Oceanic standings. The team consists of Bobby ‘Zedzke’ Johnson, Alec ‘Noisia’ Gulabovski, Georgio ‘sK’ Poumpoulidis, Raymond ‘Dezibel’ Odisho, Xavier ‘Xav’ Kliendienst, and substitute Daniel ‘Lax’ Rushton.
“After sitting down with this team and discussing their plans for the future we came to the mutual conclusion that growing the region was our top priority,” says Alex Gonzalez, Nuovo’s CEO. “The roster is striving to compete at the highest level in and out of the game and is a perfect embodiment of what we feel Nuovo Gaming wants to bring to the scene.”
Upon its launch three days ago Nuovo signed prominent Oceanic StarCraft 2 player Ethan “iaguz” Zugai and Australian Hearthstone player Tom ‘TomFLR’ Finlayson. Nuovo’s Chief Operating Officer Jordan O’Hara tells the Daily Dot that the expansion is part of Nuovo’s plan to dominate the Oceanic region, with more announcements expected soon.
“Through picking up our third professional roster since launch, we hope to show how serious Nuovo is about expanding to the highest level in Oceanic esports.”
