Nitr0 Returns to Valorant: M80 Reportedly Signs Former CSGO IGL

Star IGL nitr0 joins M80 for a VCT comeback, promising a new era in Valorant. M80's strategic move could redefine the competitive landscape.

The esports arena is once again set to witness a seismic shift as Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella, the renowned NA CSGO in-game leader, gears up for a VCT comeback with M80, post his retirement from Counter-Strike.

nitr0’s Illustrious Journey in CSGO and Valorant

Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella is no stranger to the competitive gaming scene. His legacy in CSGO is unparalleled, having led teams to numerous victories. However, the allure of Valorant was too strong to resist. After a brief stint with 100 Thieves in the VCT circuit, where he clinched the North America First Strike and secured a commendable top-four finish at the 2021 Masters Berlin, nitr0 decided to return to his CSGO roots. But as fate would have it, the Valorant universe wasn’t done with him yet.

M80’s Strategic Move: A Game-Changer?

M80’s decision to reportedly sign nitr0 comes at a crucial juncture. With their previous IGL, Mouhamed “johnqt” Ouarid, moving to Sentinels, the team was on the lookout for a seasoned leader. nitr0, with his vast experience and strategic acumen, fits the bill perfectly. Alongside nitr0, other notable players like GianFranco “koalanoob” Potestio, Marc-Andre “NiSMO” Tayar, and Alexender “Zander” Dituri are also set to join the ranks of M80. However, the fifth member remains a mystery, adding to the anticipation.

What Lies Ahead for M80 and nitr0?

The future looks promising for M80 and nitr0. If the reports hold true, nitr0 will be competing in the North American Challengers circuit, aiming for an Americas Ascension spot. Given M80’s near-miss in 2023, where they were the runners-up to The Guard, the addition of nitr0 might just be the catalyst they need to clinch the title.
