After the departure of Chet ‘ImAPet’ Singh from Evil Geniuses, the North American organization are reportedly acquiring the services of former MiBR and Team Liquid coach Wilton ‘zews’ Prado.

According to a report from DBLTAP, no final decision has been made, but the Brazilian apparently practiced with the EG squad on April 8, ahead of a potential move.

Zews’ exit from the Brazilian favorites was somewhat surprising, after his years of success with the core of the roster. He also had a stint on Team Liquid, before rejoining his old teammates on MiBR in late 2018.

MiBR have failed to live up to their own high standards during zews’ tenure, however, with their best placements being top 4 at both IEM Katowice 2019 and the CS:GO Asia Championships.

ImAPet left EG amid turmoil between him and some of the players, namely Tarik ‘tarik’ Celik and Peter ‘stanislaw’ Jarguz.

Announcing his exit from the team, Singh stated “it’s no secret my relationship with Stan and tarik was absolutely horrendous,” explaining that they disagreed on strategic decisions.

Despite this, EG performed well in a handful of events under ImAPet’s coaching, perhaps even overachieving compared to expectations for the lineup.

If zews does join, it could repair the gap left by what we now know was a broken relationship between EG’s former coach and their in-game leader, stanislaw.

EG are currently flying high in the ESL Pro League too, tied for top spot and qualified for playoffs. Their next match will be up against Team Liquid, for a spot in the grand final.

MIBR confirm LUCAS1, vsm, leo_drunky signings for CSGO rebuild

MIBR has confirmed three signings ahead of their 2021 CS:GO rebuild, bringing on former member LUCAS1 permanently, as well as vsm and leo_drunky on loan.

MIBR’s CSGO team has gone through a bit of a rollercoaster ride lately. Last month, they dropped two star players, TACO and fer, and coach dead after a major coaching scandal. Then, FALLEN left due to his dissatisfaction with their decision.

Losing the old SK core has forced the organization to rebuild the team from scratch. However, they’ve locked in some of South America’s brightest talent to do so.

MIBR has added Leonardo ‘leo_drunky’ Oliveira, Lucas ‘LUCAS1’ Teles, and Vinicius ‘vsm’ Moreira to their roster. The October 23 announcement confirmed LUCAS1 would be a permanent addition, while vsm and leo_drunky would play on loan from their respective teams.

It comes after a multitude of rumors about where MIBR’s squad would land after the SK core departed.

LUCAS1 played for MIBR in 2019, where he spent six months in the squad before moving on to Imperial e-Sports. He spent almost a year with Imperial, before suddenly leaving the squad just a few weeks ago.

His experience, not only in CS:GO but with MIBR, will help the Brazilian legends get back on their feet.

vsm and Leo_drunky provide beacons of hope for the region’s future too. However, vsm’s VAC ban could hinder them when it comes around to major events.

Leo_drunky is only 20 years old and could be a valuable member of the team for years to come.

The two youngsters join MIBR on loan from Sharks Esports (leo_drunky) and Detona (vsm). However, if things go well, it’s likely they’ll be signed on permanently.

MIBR has also secured the services of CS 1.6 veteran Raphael ‘cogu’ Camargo. After a year since his last major gig, he is returning to the team that started it all. He played on MIBR’s 1.6 roster from 2004 to 2009.

MIBR is expected to compete in the BLAST Premier Fall Season, as well as Flashpoint Season 2.
