The young star has returned to his previous squad

malbsMd and oNe reunite

After an unfortunate time with 00 Nation, malbsMd is returning to a more familiar environment.

Brazilian organization oNe have announced the signing of Mario "malbsMd" Samayoa, marking the Guatemalan's return to the squad after having previously played with the team for over a year and a half. This announcement comes just hours before oNe is set to start their grueling campaign in the first IEM Rio RMR NA Open Qualifier.

malbsMd originally signed with oNe in May of 2020, averaging a promising 1.09 rating in domestic competition during his lengthy tenure with the squad. malbsMd helped oNe secure qualification for a variety of international events, including ESL Pro League Seasons 13 and 14, the IEM Cologne 2021 Play-In, and the IEM Katowice 2021 Play-In.

malbsMd opted to depart oNe early in 2022 to link up with Marcelo "coldzera" David on 00 Nation. Unfortunately for malbsMd and the rest of 00 Nation, coldzera's project struggled to make a dent in international competition, culminating in a 1-3 exit from the PGL Major Antwerp Americas RMR. This led to a rebuilding of the 00 Nation roster centered around coldzera and AWPer Santino "try" Rigal, leaving malbsMd out of the squad.

malbsMd's return to oNe has been in the works for quite some time, as a Dust2 Brasil report from as far back as June suggested that oNe was interested in pursuing malbsMd as a replacement for Enzo "xns" Henrique. Following that report, malbsMd periodically stood in for oNe to help the squad face Gaimin Gladiators in Season 41 of ECL, later helping the team survive Season 41's ECL relegation.

oNe's roster is now:

  • Brazil Pedro "Maluk3" Campos

  • Brazil Matheus "pesadelo" Panisset

  • Brazil Alencar "trk" Rossato

  • Brazil Victor "iDk" Torraca

  • Guatemala Mario "malbsMd" Samayoa

oNe will make their official debut with malbsMd in just a matter of hours, as the squad is set to kick off their journey in the first IEM Rio RMR NA Open Qualifier later today.
