Brazilian CS:GO star Marcelo ‘coldzera‘ David has reportedly requested to be placed on the bench for MiBR, informing the organization of his desire to leave.

Following MiBR’s disappointing showing at ESL One Cologne, HLTV has learned that coldzera, widely considered one of the best individual players in Counter-Strike over the past few years, is “seeking a new challenge”.

His move will not be immediate though, as he will apparently play out both BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles and IEM Chicago with the roster, before moving to the bench.

During his time with SK Gaming, many considered coldzera the best player in the world.

HLTV’s source has claimed that coldzera has grown frustrated after MiBR’s string of poor results, with roster moves unable to fill the gaps.

The roster lock for the StarLadder Major on June 24 means that MiBR will most likely be forced into playing with their coach, Wilton ‘zews’ Prado for the event, which starts on August 23.

Coldzera’s performance individually has perhaps coincided with a drop off in his team’s performances too, as despite boasting an all-star core, they have struggled to maintain any kind of consistency.

Their top sixteen finish in Cologne was their second poor result in a row, after they managed only top eight at the ECS Season 7 Finals, despite bringing in the addition of Lucas ‘LUCAS1’ Teles, on loan from Luminosity.

Since returning to an all-Brazilian lineup, following the departure of Tarik ‘tarik’ Celic and Jake ‘Stewie2k’ Yip, MiBR has managed middling results at best, now resulting in codlzera’s move to seek out a new ‘challenge’.

MiBR roster (rumored)

  • Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo
  • Fernando ‘fer’ Alvarenga
  • Epitacio ‘TACO’ de Melo
  • Lucas ‘LUCAS1’ Teles (on loan)
  • Wilton ‘zews’ Prado (coach)
    • Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David (bench)

How GeT_RiGHT became CSGO’s first God

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund became the first god of the game by dazzling a generation of players, propelling the game’s meta by years, and leaving a historic mark not to be outdone anytime soon.

Since 2010, before CS:GO ever hit the market, GeT_RiGhT was already terrorizing teams in 1.6 with fellow Swede Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg. Since their early 20s, the duo would rampage through events during their stints at Fnatic and SK Gaming.

If his career would have stopped in the 1.6 servers, his name would have still carried weight through the esports annals -but then, Global Offensive came out in 2012, where he would ascend to even greater heights of notoriety.

From the start, GeT_RiGhT would prove to be an instrumental force to reshape the Counter-Strike meta, specializing in dangerous lurks that would tilt opponents or catch them off guard.

It was risky, but so was his modus operandi. When early CS:GO pros would perfect their taps for long-range kills, he would hold Mouse1 to mow down entire teams with pinpoint recoil mastery.

He would soon be known for his multi-kills from a distance, without the need for consecutive fires, instead electing for choice bullet accuracy to push his team forward.

The #1 player in the world in 2013 and 2014, GeT_RiGhT, and the rest of the reformed Ninjas in Pyjamas that included Adam ‘Friberg,’ Robin ‘Fifflaren’ Johansson, Forest, and Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström would create an astounding 87-0 map win run.

GeT_RiGhT would go on to have an illustrious career filled with trophies, titles, and glory, becoming the first god of CS:GO along the way.
