Top laner Felipe "Yang" Zhao and jungler Gabriel "Revolta" Henud have joined Keyd Stars, the team announced Monday.

In addition to Yang and Revolta, Keyd Stars will also field former PaiN Gaming support Pedro "Ziriguidun" Vilarinho in a lineup that has all the makings of a CBLOL super team.

Revolta is no stranger to Keyd Stars, as the jungler has bounced between Keyd Stars, CNB and INTZ since 2013. Revolta has only attended international competition as part of INTZ, going to the 2016 World Championship, the 2015 International Wild Card invitational, and IEM Oakland.

Yang, conversely, has been a staple of INTZ for the past two years, and has been lauded for his wide champion pool. Across 2016, Yang has played 19 champions in competitive play.

Yang and Revolta's move to Keyd Stars also coincides with the departure of INTZ's head coach Abaxial, who led the team to its recent domestic success and international ventures.
