Two of the best League of Legends players in Brazil have found a new home. INTZ’s former dynamic top/jungle duo of Felipe “Yang” Zhao and Gabriel “Revolta” Henud have joined Keyd Stars along with former paiN Gaming support Pedro “Ziriguidun” Vilarinho, the team announced on Facebook Monday.
After a strong domestic season with INTZ, Yang and Revolta picked up plenty of attention from their dominating early performances at Worlds, defeating Chinese champions EDward Gaming before dropping out of the group stages at 1-5. In fact, Yang played so well he received our first Titanium Spork at Worlds for his performance in the group stages.
After winning the CBLOL 2016 Summer Season, Keyd was swept by INTZ in the Summer Finals. That was followed up by a disappointing fourth place finish in both the Winter regular season and Playoffs, and now the team is making some changes.
For Revolta, it’s a return to the organization that helped make his name. He first joined up with Keyd in February 2013, and this is his fourth separate stint with the team.
