With this stand-in trio, MIBR will field an all Brazilian line-up just in time for the BLAST Premier Fall Series, event that will start next week.
The organisation had announced earlier the addition of Raphael “cogu” Camargo. Former representative of MIBR on Counter-Strike 1.6, and most notably known for being a part of their legendary ESWC 2006 run, cogu will transition back from VALORANT to Counter-Strike.
September 13th would mark a very dark day for MIBR, as the brand owned by the Immortals Gaming Club broke up the long lasting core of their line-up, by benching Fernando ‘fer’ Alvarenga and Epitácio ‘TACO’ de Melo.
Unhappy about the changes, Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo announced on the same day that he would also step down, leaving MIBR with only two standing members: Vito ‘kNgV’ Giuseppe and the up-and-comer Alencar ‘trk’ Rossato.
After peaking in June, the team began a steady descent that culminated on the suspension of their coach Ricardo ‘dead’ Sinigaglia, as he was caught in the ESIC investigation relating to a spectator-bug, and on a series of disheartening results on their boot-camp in Serbia, which degraded the public support of the project, as well as the core of the team.

This will mark the second stint of Lucas ‘LUCAS1’ Teles in the organisation, having been replaced by Argentinian youngster Ignacio ‘meyern’ Meyer in the latter end of 2019.
Leonardo ‘leo_drunky’ Oliveira will have an opportunity to climb up the ranks, leaving Sharks Esports for one of the most prestigious Brazilian teams, while the acclaimed Vinicius ‘vsm’ Moreira will get his first proper test competing at tier one, being withdrawn from the opportunity by his 2012-2013 VAC ban.
MIBR will debut the line-up against Astralis on November 2nd, as part of the opening round of Group C at BLAST Premier Fall 2020.
