Prominent CS:GO esports organization, MIBR, have dropped star players Epitacio ‘TACO’ de Melo, Fernando ‘fer’ Alvarenga, and coach Ricardo ‘dead’ Sinigaglia following the recent drama surrounding coaches using banned exploits.

Fer, TACO, and dead were released from MIBR’s roster on September 13, nearly a week after a major coaching scandal rocked the CS:GO world.

Dead, who had been with the team since March, was one of the coaches implicated in scandal after it had been determined that he, along with 10 others across the esport, had knowingly used a bug to gain a spectating advantage of opponents.

In summary, MIBR affirms that their social face value and overall integrity shouldn’t be tarnished by those that represent the organization, even if it’s long-standing players.

“We are living in a moment where it is important for MIBR and MIBR fans to make changes, and we will be making some adjustments to the roster over the next several weeks,” they stated.

The post assures fans that the Brazilian CS:GO legacy of these players will always be remembered, but the show must go on. The team will continue to reshape its competitive roster and will be “retooling” ahead of the premier fall competitions, including BLAST and Flashpoint 2.

TACO and fer became MIBR icons after joining the org in 2018, along with fellow star FalleN. The three formed a core that existed for nearly two years before being dismantled in the wake of this announcement.

“I just want to make it clear that it was a decision made exclusively by the organization,” TACO wrote in a Twitlonger after being dropped.

“I’m sad that I have to leave my teammates FalleN, fer, kNg, trk and dead – especially in the current team situation, but looking forward to seeing what the future holds!”

Fer also promised he’ll reveal more details about the situation in the future. “At this moment, I can’t talk too much about the situation, but as soon as what’s pending with the organization is solved, I will speak myself about it.”

Only time will tell who MIBR will line up to replace these two legendary figures, but whoever it is, they’ll have big shoes to fill, not just in terms of talent but also what they represent to the fans.

September 13 update (6:20pm PT): FalleN has also announced his departure from the MIBR line-up, citing his dissatisfaction with the roster changes.

“At this moment, more than ever, I need to be faithful to my values and heart to close this chapter of this beautiful story and, with regard to the fans who never left us, I communicate my [dissatisfaction] with MIBR in front of the decision to completely overhaul the line-up I chose to play for.”

Kenny ‘kennyS’ Schrub is arguably Counter-Strike’s greatest AWPer of all-time and is considered one of the game’s most mechanically gifted players in history.

Kenny, has reached heights most aspiring pros could only dream of. But after leading his all-French lineup to their Major win, the sniping sensation has had his fair share of ups and downs.

After his roller-coaster time at Envy, Schrub moved to G2 Esports and this is where everything started falling into place. After taking some time restructuring the French AWPer now finds himself among a roster of players willing to support his unorthodox style of play.

One of the most impressive stats the veteran has is that he holds the record for the most AWP kills of all time with 18,371, with Guardian coming in second with 16,214, and ENCE star Allu is in third with 13,862.

A now rejuvenated Kenny is leading G2’s charge back to the top of CS:GO, but is the AWP GOAT past his sell-by date? Here’s what the stats say.
