Prob good fans scene is bad look at MIBR
Iam no specialist but looking at amount of tournaments in brazil scene is preety big there. there are always new upincoming players to break to top tiers. Thats why idk mibr took trk.
in general, there are not many championships ... there are the main ones (clutch season and cbcs), the others are half-assed, from the gamersclub (faceit style platform, only from south america).
The big championships are well received by the public here in Brazil because we like csgo and also because we don’t have many, only 4 or 5 throughout the csgo
All we have is the clutch season and cbcs and gamersclub, which was created by FalleN, our brazilian FPL.
People outside of Brazil do not realize how important FalleN is for the scene. He created the competitive scenario, an academy for players to learn and a whole platform to assemble competitive teams. All our talents came from his platform Gamersclub, even FURIA.
Brazil never invested a dime on esports before FalleN, it is an heavy bureaucratic country with lots of taxes.
Aside from gamers, I am pretty sure everyone thinks it is insanity to play esports. If you are low class/middle class, you need to work all day and study at night. All our players really are outliers, that have fought their own levels of adversity to be there, like any athlete in general here.
The good thing is: CSGO here has the largest fanbase in the world. 150k ~ 200k every match, which is 5x more than all other streams combined.
Considering 4 out of the 6 biggest/best BR teams are stationed in NA, the BR scene isnt really as good as people might think. Sure, having good BR teams in a scene like NA might help the young talents to try hard and get noticed.
But it also leave the scrim possibilities in BR worse than it could've been.
For now there are a handful of decent BR teams still playing from Brazil though: BOOM and Red Canids mainly.
Only decent team in Brazil is BOOM, but they’re known internationally already, so i don’t think there’s much going on i br scene
