Twin brothers Henrique “HEN1” Teles and Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles were both benched by 00Nation on Thursday.
The move comes after a disappointing performance at the IEM Fall North America Regional Major Ranking event, where the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team failed to qualify for the PGL Stockholm Major.
“After the recent RMR event we decided to place HEN1 and LUCAS1 on the bench,” 00Nation posted on Twitter. “The remainder of the team just traveled to HQ, to reset and refocus, before they start the climb up the ladder.”
The 26-year-old Brazilian siblings joined 00Nation in May when the team was called O Plano. HEN1 had previously played with FURIA Esports, Luminosity Gaming, 100 Thieves and Immortals, among others. LUCAS1 had been with MIBR, Luminosity, 100 Thieves and Immortals.
Remaining members of the all-Brazilian 00Nation lineup include Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe, Leonardo “leo_drk” Oliveira, Vinicius “v$m” Moreira, Alencar “trk” Rossato and coach Raphael “cogu” Camargo.
