Brazilian Counter-Strike team Made in Brazil are in serious discussions with Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles about joining the active roster, according to multiple sources.

LUCAS1 is a member of the Luminosity Gaming organization and has already participated in practice with MiBR following the both teams’ participation at the Season 9 ESL Pro League Finals.

LUCAS1 is expected to replace João “felps” Vasconcellos on the MiBR lineup on a trial basis, if the deal goes through. Felps joined the two-time Major winners back in January for a second time. Since adding him, the team has struggled to reach the latter stages of international tournaments.

LUCAS1 and Henrique “HEN1” Teles are twin brothers and have the entirety of their time as professionals playing on the same team in CS:GO.

A move to MiBR for LUCAS1 would be the first time the pair have played separately. The two joined Luminosity Gaming in June of 2018 after leaving the Não Tem Como lineup.

DreamHackLUCAS1 previously represented Immortals, who now own the MiBR brand.

The next offline event for MiBR is ESL One: Cologne, set to take place in less than two weeks time. The roster lock for all StarLadder Berlin Major teams is June 25th. 

MiBR roster (rumored)

  • Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo
  • Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David
  • Epitácio ‘TACO de Melo
  • Fernando ‘fer’ Alvarenga
  • Lucas ‘LUCAS1’ Teles

The head-to-head between Complexity’s reformed Juggernaut and Cloud9’s Colossus was a matchup the CS:GO community were waiting to go down, and their clash at the BLAST Premier Fall 2020 Showdown didn’t disappoint.

The hype around HenryG’s C9 was just starting to take shape with matchday results. But many saw their match against a Complexity side who had already booked a trip to the Blast Global Finals in 2021 as the Colossus’ first real test.

Backed by IGL Benjamin ‘blameF’ Bremer, Kristian ‘k0nfig’ Wienecke, and latest addition Justin ‘jks’ Savage, the Juggernauts were seen as favorites against the new Cloud9 roster.

Complexity managed to take the first map off of impressive clutch moments and a more cohesive structure in navigating Cloud9’s Nuke pick. Something that is expected from a core lineup who’s been together for a year.

C9 didn’t start the series with a win, but they did show an aggressive T-side that got them up to 10-5 after the first half. But Juggernauts hit back even harder when it was their turn to attack, only giving up three rounds on their way to a 16-13 win.

The rest of the series saw the premier headlines shine: Özgür ‘woxic’ Eker’s AWP against his old team, IGL’s blameF and ‘Alex’ McMeekin masterminding plays, and star players Patrick ‘es3tag’ Hansen versus jks.

The matchup resulted in a shocking upset win for C9, but the duel formed a new narrative around the two storied orgs who are embarking in their next eras.
