MIBR have finally made it official. João “felps” Vasconcellos has been successfully transferred to the organization from INTZ. The 22-year-old reunites with Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo and co., completing the all Brazilian roster.
This roster move coincides with the departure of Epitacio “TACO” de Melo and Wilton “zews” Prado from Team Liquid in order to join MIBR. The player and coach approached Liquid seeking the move and since then the dominos have rolled with Jake “stewie2k” Yip being transferred to Liquid in return while MIBR looked to make the return to a full Brazilian roster. This has left Tarik “tarik” Celik benched and without another team to join at the current time.
felps won five international titles during his time with the former SK lineup before being replaced by Ricardo “boltz” Prass due to internal issues. Since then he was seen playing with Não Tem Como which eventually became the INTZ roster he was transferred from.
The bar is high for this roster as world champions reunite for another run. We’ve seen this before, however, with the old fnatic lineup being unable to reach the same performance upon reforming, ultimately seeing changes being made once again.
MIBR CS:GO roster:
Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo
Marcelo “coldzera” David
Fernando “fer” Alvarenga
