A young talent

Recently, Entity Gaming has made another move and announced another signing with Francisco 'escudo' Mascarenhas, a young gun from Team Brutality. The 15-year-old Macanese CS:GO player entered the scene at quite a young age. He came from Macau, China and played for Team Brutality in ESL India Premiership: Summer Phase of the Masters Cup.

escudo started playing Counter-Strike at the age of 10 when his dad bought a computer for his own office work. He first played CS:GO in the summer of 2016 with his friend. After watching competitive CS:GO in ESL Cologne 2016, he was motivated much by the victory of SK Gaming and decided to devote himself to the game. He even quit sports to play FACEIT online and got decent success and recognition from the community.
