Tribe Gaming has opted to terminate the contracts of Ian “Oxalate” Smith and Joao Victor Soares “King Joao” do Nascimento.
Oxalate and King Joao have been cornerstones of Tribe Gaming Clash Royale for the past Clash Royale League season, and their impacts on the Tribe have been immeasurable, including Oxalate being signed as Tribe Gaming’s first professional Clash Royale player.
“Parting ways with both Oxalate and King Joao is one of the toughest decision we’ve made here at Tribe – both are consummate professionals, and I expect both to shine on the CRL stage in 2019. Joao is truly a hard worker with an immense will to win at all costs, and Ox holds a special place in Tribe history as our first ever Clash Royale pro player. While we were unsuccessful in our mission to dominate the region last year, we’re fully committed to building a dominating roster in 2019, and we’re excited to reveal our full team as we approach the start of Season 2.”
– Patrick “Chief Pat” Carney, Tribe Gaming CEO & Owner
We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for their hard work and dedication to Tribe Gaming throughout the first Clash Royale League season. The Tribe will be eternally grateful for their above-and-beyond contributions to the organization, and we wish them the best in their continued Clash Royale careers.
