Counter-Strike: Global Offensive star Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David revealed that up to four teams have already expressed interest in him as he looks to move on from MiBR.

The CS:GO scene looks to be in a bidding war for the veteran’s services, as top teams look to bolster their rosters for a chance to break Team Liquid’s hold as the world’s undisputed best team.

Even though he’s still on the MiBR roster, apparently that hasn’t stopped orgs from approaching the 2x HLTV best player of the year talent who could end his stint on his current org being benched.

ELEAGUEColdzera will part ways with longtime teammate Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo.

In an interview with ESPN Brazil, coldzera revealed a lot about what’s to come as his time in the MiBR organization appears to be coming to a rapid end.

“I am still analyzing the offers I have received,” coldzera said. “After a Major there is always this game of musical chairs in the scene, so I still need to wait and see if I receive some other offers.”

In the same conversation, cold said there were already “four teams” who are pushing to see him in their respective jerseys. While there are a ton of teams that could desperately use his services, the 24-year-old gave no indication as to who was courting him.

ESLColdzera will look for a strong team to play with rather than seek the best financial gains.

While teams will undoubtedly be throwing large figure sums to acquire the Brazilian, it doesn’t look like money will be the first thing on his mind when looking for his next team.

“The financial issue is the least of my concerns,” coldzera said. “My biggest concern is who I will play with, the kind of organisation I will play under, if it has a good structure or not.”

DreamhackThe Brazilian veteran has seen a lot of changes to the lineup, but will soon exit MiBR himself.

He will obviously have his pick of the litter when it comes time to commit to an org, and it sounds like he knows it since he’s willing to hold off on a decision even if it costs months of inactivity.

“There are many factors that need to be considered, and I need to do it with care.” coldzera said. “Every rushed decision brings problems in the end. I am very calm, even if I do not compete for two or three months.”

As a big time signing, the CS:GO scene will hold its collective breath to see where coldzera ultimately decides to land.


S1mple banned again on Twitch for fourth time over “aggression”

CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev has apparently been banned again on Twitch, for his fourth time in total on the platform.

The Ukrainian is the star of Natus Vincere’s CSGO squad and generally considered one of the best CS:GO players in the entire world, but even that isn’t enough to save you from the wrath of Twitch mods.

S1mple is no stranger to temporary bans from the site, and it seems he added to his tally again on Oct. 30, with his channel being taken offline out of nowhere.

It seems that like in the past, the pro has once again been banned for using a slur while streaming, but this latest episode isn’t quite like the others.

Shortly after news of the ban dropped, s1mple Tweeted that he was banned for using a Russian slur, but he claims he only said it because he was upset with another player for saying it on his stream.

“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform,” he wrote. “I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules).”

While s1mple filled fans in on why he was banned, he didn’t mention how long he would be off of the platform for. Looking at his past infractions though, and it’s safe to say he’s probably looking at a 7-day break, at the very least.

The site has been known to ban repeat offenders for longer if they continue to get in hot water for the same thing, but considering how big of a name s1mple is and the circumstances surrounding this particular incident, it’s hard to say.

A good number of his fans noted that Twitch was quick to ban the Na’Vi pro after he slipped up, but still haven’t taken action against any one of the countless channels that rebroadcast s1mple’s streams to try and steal viewers.

Still, the pro doesn’t seem so much bothered by the ban as he does annoyed, which makes sense because he doesn’t really need to stream so to speak, considering all the money he’s made playing CS:GO professionally. That doesn’t really help his fans though, who will have to find someone else to watch while they wait for his return.
