FalleN's playArt switch to CS:GO

playArt have announced via Facebook that their 1.6 team have finally switched to CS:GO.

Almost six months after CS:GO's release, the Brazilian team have jumped on the bandwagon to try their luck in the new game, and they do so in style, with some of Brazil's most decorated players, including ESWC champions Bruno "bruno" Ono and Lincoln "fnx" Lau.

It is a move that many fans had been waiting for, but one that some feared would never happen. Even though Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo had been seen playing some CS:GO in pugs and Deathmatch, the former compLexity AWPer continued giving 1.6 players lessons through Games Academy.

compLexity from Brazil
ex-coL quartet to play CS:GO

The announcement comes just days before the start of the first big CS:GO league in the country, called Razer Challenge Brasil, with a total of eight teams in attendance.

"Our team want to dominate the CS:GO scene in Brazil, too," Lincoln "fnx" Lau told HLTV.org.

"We are adapting to the game, and everything indicates that playArt will send us to an international event this year.

"It is important to point out tht we will continue playing Counter-Strike: 1.6, we have other projects in Brazil which embrace the entire community, and we will not leave these people behind.

"During this year, a new 1.6 tournament will be announced for Brazilian people, which is meant for both the new players and the old ones who have already migrated to CS:GO."

playArt will have to work hard to catch up with the other Brazilian teams, however, as the likes of ProGaming.TD, paiN and Vince te Ipsum have been playing CS:GO for several months already.

The Brazilian team have the following players:

Brazil Bruno "bit" Lima
Brazil Bruno "bruno" Ono
Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Brazil Lincoln "fnx" Lau
Brazil Eduardo "shemp" Ferreira

hahahaha all those that said FalleN would never switch because hes LOYAL IN YOUR FACE GL falleN is great awper
2013-02-19 21:33
Who ever said that? He even played Source.
2013-02-19 23:31
Nobody said he's loyal, we thought he would not change because of his "Games Academy" project in 1.6, where he gets a good amount of money from
2013-02-19 23:40
And he just posted that he's gonna play GO 'cause he has to as a professional player and that he's gonna keep his efforts to help 1.6 grow once again in Brazil

2013-02-19 21:56
They won't be any good if they keep playing 1.6.
2013-02-19 21:57
2013-02-20 01:08
No Valve official South American servers yet, right?
2013-02-19 22:03
Yes, but I got 110~160 in the US and its not THAT bad..
2013-02-19 22:34
110-160 not bad? WWHHHHHAAAATTTTTT?
2013-02-19 23:17
110~160 in GO feels different of 1.6 and CSS, more like 50~80.
2013-02-19 23:38
150+ lag ;) Just buy AWP and you will see.
2013-02-20 10:34
Above 130 it's quite impossible to play with awp! with +- 110 is "acceptable", but still the ping is less affective in the gameplay then in 1.6
2013-02-20 13:51
100+ for me with awp is impossible..

nak is better than bit and bruno
2013-02-20 02:32
+1, wasnt he the IGL aswell?
2013-02-20 07:10
He and bit, depends on whatever they're playning to do, at the time I think its bit, but the last years (until 2011) was nak
2013-02-20 13:51
2013-02-21 00:14
bit needs to retire from cs and start a new carrer on league of legends where he actually plays very well.
2013-02-19 22:12
too late
2013-02-19 22:16
sad . why play go ?

the Brazilian team have jumped on the bandwagon to try their luck in the new game, and they do so in style, with some of Brazil's most decorated players, including ESWC champions Bruno "bruno" Ono and Lincoln "fnx" Lau. FALLEN:was one of the best awp of 1.6 Bit: ex-MIBR
2013-02-19 23:18
k thx bai!
2013-02-20 07:36
now we have a scene for cs:go.
2013-02-19 23:18
LOL that was unexpected!!! LMAO
2013-02-19 23:18
Finally, but fallen, fnx and bruno (ellll) has a school at the cs 1.6 (teaches newboys at the cs 1.6) and wins lots of money. They probably will not have the required time to get the top. But, goodluck FalleN, you're the king! - shemp + COGU
2013-02-19 23:27
hhahahaha +shemp -cogu
2013-02-20 01:26
OMG! Awesome news! *-*

2013-02-20 01:27
Top 5 obviously In South America.
2013-02-19 23:33
top 1 america as in 1.6
2013-02-19 23:36
imo it is possible for PG to achieve that. It's too late for PA and will always be if they keep playing 1.6.
2013-02-20 00:27
do playArt have deep pockets?
2013-02-19 23:38
Lots of company behind eSport here haves, they just don't see a reason to do it.
2013-02-19 23:43
Does fnx know the meaning of retirement? xD It's more like he took some vacations during his gaming carreer :)
2013-02-19 23:45

why do dumb brazilians pay money for dumb Gamers Academy ? For Dead Game .. ?
2013-02-20 00:30
they may apply 1.6 strategies to GO e improve and adapt it!
2013-02-20 01:00
2013-02-20 03:47
They wanna learn the most and play the best they can in the game they love to play, what's wrong with that? You guys like to criticize everything, FalleN is doing a good job with the "brazilian 1.6 scene" providing tournaments and stuff for us but you guys just complain. Do you really think the people playing those 1.6 tournaments wanna live of playing games? They do it 'cause they like to, otherwise they'd be playing GO for a long time already. It's not always about money, but about enjoyment.
2013-02-20 14:44
wont matter they are nowhere top500
2013-02-20 01:10
there are no 500 players in this crap game
2013-02-20 02:51
