Published: Oct 25, 2020 - Last Updated: Jul 25, 2023

MiBR has announced the temporary signing of Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles, Vinicius “vsm” Moreira, and Leonardo “leo_drk” Oliveira to its CS:GO roster until the end of the year. The Brazilian trio will compete with the team in the upcoming Blast Premier Fall and Flashpoint Season 2 events.

The trio will join Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe and Alencar “trk” Rossato in MIBR’s starting lineup. Out of the three new additions, LUCAS1 is the most familiar face, having played with the team last year before getting replaced by Ignacio “meyern” Meyer in December.

Leo and vsm are two up-and-coming young talents in the Brazilian scene. VSM is one of the region’s exciting fraggers, boasting a rating of 1.23 with DETONA Gaming. His career has only been hampered by a VAC ban he received back in 2013.

Leo, on the other hand, is a consistent entry fragger and is seen as the backbone of Sharks Esports.

The roster overhaul itself comes just two days after the addition of new head coach Raphael “cogu” Camargo.

A disappointing year to say the least

It has not been a good year for MIBR, to say the least. The team that once took the Counter-Strike world by storm has looked like a shadow of its former self. During this season, MIBR had only two successful outings, with the team winning the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown and finishing as the runners up at Flashpoint Season 1.

The disappointing drop in form that culminated in a disastrous bootcamp in Serbia, during which MIBR won just four matches out of its fourteen matches.

The Brazilians were left with just two full members soon after, as the duo of Fernando “fer” Alvarenga and Epitácio “TACO” de Melo paid the price for the team’s lackluster results. As a protest to the decision, team captain Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo also requested to be benched from the lineup.

With that, the legendary Brazilian stack was put out of commission for the first time in the last five years, with the future for FalleN and company looking fairly bleak.

Can MIBR rise from the ashes?

MIBR’s new lineup will be captained by kNgV. The addition of coach Cogu adds a new element of hope and surprise, both of which the roster is going to need seeing as they haven’t practiced much for the upcoming tournaments. The Brazilians will be making their CS:GO comeback by competing against at BLAST Premier Fall, where a daunting group comprised of Astralis, FURIA and G2 awaits them.

The team’s trial by fire awaits them on November 2. against the Astralis, the current No.1-ranked team in the world, and the esports odds are not looking good for MIBR.
