The Brazilian based Counter-Strike:Global Offensive team, Made In Brazil has announced the imediate benching of their star player Marcelo 'coldzera' David.
At first, the player was supposed to stay with the active roster for two events.
The BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles and BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles 13'th of July 2019 till 14'th of July 2019 at the HD Buttercup Building, Los Angeles United States of America, Intel Extreme Masters Season XIV Chicago 18'th of July 2019 till 21'st of July 2019 at the United Center, Chicago, United States of America.
Now it seems that the player was benched and the team will use coach Wilton 'zews' Prado at the two above mentioned events.
Indeed the player shared his desire to stay with the team for the two events and probably for the StarLadder Berlin Major 2019 in the Mercedes-Benz Arena, Berlin, Germany, but the team coach thinks otherwise and wants to start planning the future of the team right away.
In the official statement, zews wrote:
"We have come to the conclusion that the moment we need to live is one of rebuilding for the future and the earlier we start, the better.
Not only for our starting lineup but for our team culture.
Management, coach and players need to all be aligned in order for us to well represent not only MIBR, but everything and everyone that entails in its legacy. This is our mission statement moving forward.
The collective is above any individuality or necessity that goes against it."
Now the future of coldzera lies in clouds while the CS:GO team of MiBR now is:
- Gabriel 'FalleN' Toledo (C)
