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.
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.
