Marcelo "coldzera" David and 00Nation are one of the Brazilian teams at IEM Rio with huge expectations on their shoulders playing in front of a very active and loud home crowd.
In their opening match against Bad News Eagles, it did not start well for 00Nation. The roster had big problems on their T-side. With only three rounds won in the first half, there was a mountain to climb in the second half. And suddenly the loud crowd was almost silent, which indicated the bad times for 00Nation. The second half was quickly over with Bad News Eagles winning all the rounds to cement their superiority during the match.
00Nation will have to do better tonight in the second round of the Challengers Stage to avoid playing an early elimination match tomorrow.
