00 Nation finalised their Counter-Strike roster rebuild on Saturday, January 6, with the signing of Dion "FASHR" Derksen and Vladan "VLDN" Radevic. The duo join 00 Nation to replace the voids left behind by Nikolaj "niko" Kristensen's transfer to Sashi Esportsd and Tim "susp" Anfstrom's departure to Metzipot.

00 Nation formed a new international Counter-Strike lineup in August 2023, when the Norwegian esports organisation released the previous Brazilian lineup in favour of an English-speaking roster.

Since then, 00 Nation have found some success and won Pinnacle Cup V, but haven't managed to make much noise by the end of the year, adding just one tournament title on Counter-Strike 2.

In a bid to find more success, 00 Nation head into 2024 with a different roster, welcoming two new faces. 

At the start of December, 00 Nation released susp who joined Metizpot, and, a month later parted ways with niko, who left to Sashi Esports on loan. Now, less than a week later, 00 Nation found replacements to fill the voids left behind by departed players.

VLDN and FASH Fill The Voids

FASHR joins 00 Nation after spending the last six months of 2023 with OG, who he joined from Fnatic, where he spent ten months, from August 2022 to June 2023. The 27-year-old hasn't found much success in either team, but he had appeared at the BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 and won Elisa Masters Espoo 2022 with the Black & Orange.

His new teammate, VLDN arrives at 00 Nation as one of the least experienced players on the roster, The Serbian rifler started his esports career in January 2021, but it wasn't until September that year that he signed his first professional contract with iNation, where he has spent two years.

With iNation, VLDN has competed mostly in lesser Counter-Strike tournaments and failed to find much success in the latter half of 2023. Since leaving iNation in the summer, the Serbian CS player has played for several rosters and even stood in for ENCE at CS Asia Championships 2023, where he made the semifinals.

With VLDN and FASH, 00 Nation now field a complete Counter-Strike lineup, which will debut on January 8, 2024, in the first European open qualifier for PGL Major Copenhagen 2024.
