Following the news of Made in Brazil’s official signing of João “felps” Vasconcellos, Tarik “tarik” Celik has spoken out on the MIBR move and his future. In a TwitLonger, the 22-year-old explained he knew things weren’t guaranteed when joining the team and choosing to leave Cloud9 behind.

“I knew that joining MIBR was a risk and unfortunately it didn’t pan out. Some difficulties in language and culture, but most importantly a clash of play styles brought it to an abrupt end,” he said. Celik isn’t regretful though as he added, “Regardless of everything, having the chance to learn and work with the Brazilian core was a unique and thrilling opportunity for me. Although it was short-lived, it was an honor to play with the legends. I have no regrets, everything happens for a reason.”

He also makes sure to mention that although he has been a part of several roster shuffles, it is not always his idea initially, rather the opposite.

“You can look at my past and every team I ever joined I was never the first to leave. I always wanna stick it through, thick and thin, but someone always ends up pulling the puzzle piece out too soon.”

Tarik left Cloud9 following the departure of Jake “stewie2k” Yip to MIBR whom he would follow shortly thereafter. The former Cloud9 Major Champions roster lasted only months before the moves took place, leaving Cloud9 in a tough spot they’ve yet to make it out of due to roster and medical issues.

In terms of his future, Celik says for now he will “be sitting out with MIBR, streaming and working further on my personal game, until another opportunity arises.” Jason Lake, CEO, and founder of compLexity has publicly revealed that his organization made an offer to the player but it did not come to fruition.

At this time I’ll be sitting out with MIBR, streaming and working further on my personal game, until another opportunity arises. Thank you for all of my fans who’ve followed me since the beginning, and especially thanks to the fans of Brazil for accepting me in open arms, you are all incredible.”
