Days ago, ESPN Esports revealed that Jacky “Stewie” Yip will be traded to Liquid in exchange for Epitácio “TACO” de Melo and Wilton “zews” Prado. At the same time, Tarik “tarik” Celik was expected to be benched and replaced by a Brazilian player.
First reports by VPEsports explained that Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe and Kaike “kscerato” Cerato were some of the players targeted by MIBR.
After a few days, it appears that FURIA asked to much for the young kscerato and MIBR had to turn to a new player. Yesterday, the Brazilian website draft5gg reported that João “felps” Vasconcellos could be the new MIBR player.
According to our information, we can tell you that the deal is really close to be done. Felps would rejoin the same players that he played with SK Gaming during 8 months in 2017, winning 5 tournaments with FalleN, fer, coldzera and TACO.
Recently, Marcelo “coldzera” David explained in an interview that he didn’t enjoy playing with Felps and that he lacked a stronger mindset. Sources told us that the MIBR players changed their minds about him because they appreciated what he showed with INTZ, leading his team to EPL Finals and seeing improvements in his game. They also acknowledge the fact that he was a young and lacked experience when he joined them in February 2017.
MIBR should soon look like:
Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo
Fernando “fer” Alvarenga
Marcelo “coldzera” David
Epitácio “TACO” de Melo
João “felps” Vasconcellos
Wilton “zews” Prado (coach)
