When people talk about the Brazilian core that ruled the world of Counter-Strike from 2016-2017, the conversation is usually centered around: Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, Marcelo “Coldzera” David, or Fernando “Fer” Alvarenga.
All three are larger than life figures. FalleN is the Godfather of Brazilian Counter-Strike. Coldzera is the best player Brazil ever produced.
Fer redefined the limit of aggression in 2017, and his personal story is among the most dramatic in #esports history.
Yet no story of the Brazilians can be complete without Epitacio “TACO” de Melo.
TACO is the unsung hero of the squad.
He was never the star or leader, but his contribution and impact were critical in helping his teams succeed at the highest level.
