KaBuM merge with ProGaming.TD

KaBuM veteran Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo has announced that his team have merged with ProGaming.TD.

The Brazilian team were last weekend in action at the ESWC Finals, in Paris, where they finished fifth of their group with four defeats and a solitary victory against Platinium-Servers.

Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo took to Facebook to reveal that, upon returning home, the team received an offer to merge the financial resources of both KaBuM and TeamTD, which would allow them to attend one international event every three months.


Three roster changes for KaBuM

After careful consideration, FalleN came to the conclusion that the offer was too good to pass up and recruited three players from ProGaming.TD, Lucas "steel" Lopes, Caio "zqkS" Fonseca and Ricardo "Boltz" Prass.

These three new players will be stepping into the shoes of Henrique "HEN1" Teles, Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles and Lincoln "fnx" Lau with immediate effect.

"This ESWC showed that we still lack a lot of organisation, commitment and experience at international events for us to be champions abroad," Toledo wrote on Facebook.

"It showed me that even though you give the team everything that is in your power, that may not be enough to have full commitment from your team-mates.

"I am saying this because our practices could have been better. It is true that practicing in Brazil is not as good as practicing abroad, but if that is not possible then you have to do the best with what you have.

"I have said many times that fnx is one of the best players I have seen, but despite the fact that he is so good when committed, it is hard to motivate him. So we decided not to play with him for the next competitions.

"It seemed easy, picking up a player to replace fnx and pick up where we left off, but an opportunity arose. This is one of the toughest decisions one can make when you are playing alongside people you really care about.

"But this is our job, and somtimes we have to let people we care about go to move on. I work every day with the dream of putting our country at the top of eSports, and that is what motivates me and gives me the safety to make hard decisions like this one."

From now on, the team will be called KaBuM.TD, with their lineup now looking as follows:

Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes
Brazil Caio "zqkS" Fonseca
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass

For you foreigners who do not know very well what happened! Before they went to France, the fallen created a website asking for donations to goals, and the "whole" community that helped it was around 44K Reais (+/- $ 20K) for us (fans) thought they were going to follow through with the team after ESWC and the only international event would help them gain more experience! This is the second time the fallen is something, in 2013 he entered into an organization that welcomed very well and then tried to expel own team captain. Today the event is repeated, fallen was influenced by money and eventually expelling the two most charismatic team Lucas and Hen, who for several nights streams were doing to raise money to travel to France. Not only do I like many Brazilians are against what he did and find a real coup, and hope that his team pick in all leagues next! Sorry for bad english :/

brazillian scene is on fire. players and girlfriends talking a lot of shit. moments like these remember me why cs in brazil is so amateur... why not shake hands and move on? you know, everyone that plays counter-strike knows (should, at least) that changes are normal. it is an end of cycle... but no, they prefere to talk a lot of shit and close doors (organizations, partners, sponsors...). including fallen here, which make a shit post commenting about the backstage of kabum's preparation and talking about the individual performance in games against titan or hellraisers. come on, this is what real leaders do? this is what professionals do? the fact is brazil is one of the worst cs communities. it's a lot of fanboys and haters (players also), no one stop and think even a minute... why not be more racional? adult, maybe? gg and good luck kabum, teles brothers and mibr.
2014-11-06 06:56
>the fact is brazil is one of the worst cs communities. Every Brazilian community is a cesspool in online games from what I have seen.
2014-11-06 11:03
true story bros, brazilian community is so immature, bunch of kids and their "egoments" We probably have the skill/style potential, but no leagues and no community
2014-11-06 13:19
I don't know if you followed what was happening in hen1's stream after his facebook post, but I think that reaction forced fallen into saying all that. When things get so out of proportion like that, you have to be sincere and smash the truth into everyone's faces. It was a terrible situation for FalleN, and he handled it decently, imo. I also wish he would explain it in more of a professional way, but I don't think that would've work with his target audience in this case. Alot of unnecessary drama, for sure.
2014-11-06 12:42
No we didn't, so please explain what happened, what did he say??
2014-11-06 19:01
Alot of people saying: - FalleN only cared for money and doesn't give a shit for people who helped him. - HEN1- and lucas were the best at ESWC and by no means should be the ones kicked. - FalleN stolen tournament prizes and a PC (he didn't allowed the twins to get the PC bac to their house, but is wasn't their PC, it was kabum's). - FalleN the worst person in the world and will backstab whoever to get money. No need to say this kind of kids lack understaning in a huge way and will trash people with no information proving their "points". But FalleN has explained things and now only the very stupid remain against him.

Come on, if he is "so pro" why he doesn't get out of Brazil and starts play in a big org in sweden? Fiffly is out, go there little fallen. I would like to see you talking that f0rest it isn't professional and how many you spended. You are one of the best awpers that i have seen. Since CS 1.6.

FalleN being such a dickhead, that's sad for me, I was a big fan of him. but the way he managed the situation was just ridiculous. Kicked fnx - Surely deserved and expected, nothing to say about it; Kicked the twins lucas and hen1 - a questionable decision, wich I respect completely, specially considering his new opportunity to play international tournaments more often. The problem lies at his second post about the subject. After being kicked along with his brother, hen1 posted on his facebook page a statement talking about it, about how sad he and his brother were about the news, that he's looking for new teammates and a new sponsor so he can keep with the dream of living from what he loves doing and thanking FalleN for the opportunity he gave them. Handling everything in a very mature way without a doubt. hen1's statement: facebook.com/henriqueteles2/photos/a.146.. But then FalleN comes with a new statement full of shit and trashtalking, where he says that the twins were always mid-level players, talking about how thankful they should be for the opportunity he gave them, classifying in-game individual mistakes by lucas in the game against Titan as "imbecile decision", calling them "a bunch of infants" for not accepting the situation completely fine and accusing them of playing the victim role. And calls himself a leader. Such a joke. Sad. FalleN's post: facebook.com/henriqueteles2/photos/a.146..
2014-11-06 12:33
hen1 was pretty good
2014-11-06 15:18
Simplesmente pelo esse fato que os times brasileiros disputam campeonatos na europa e sempre perde, não sabem monta um time para fica a um longo tempo...
2014-11-06 15:25
Because it Brazilian team always lost! Brazilian team don't know make a good team , happens that always go out a player
2014-11-06 15:28
I now this might hurt a lot for the twins (not for FNX because he's probably going to the new MiBR line),but i think Fallen made the best decision ever,the team is so much better,he don't have to play as assault anymore,so he can AWP,the team has ZQK as an awesome second sniper,botlz young talent and have dedication into the game,steel and fer are very important players for any team,and the most important thing,they can play at least 4 International LAN Tournament every year.

Wise decision, I always stated that the brothers didn't had what it takes to WIN the major tournaments. I think fnx will not be THAT fnx we once knew, even at that time he seemed to have problems with motivation, or should i say focus. He always looked like he had other things in mind other than CS wich is sad, because he had the potential to be, not one of the best, but the best itself. Anyway, good luck. PS:. I already know who one of cogu's new teammates is. :D
