KaBuM lose team

KaBuM's players have parted ways with the organisation ahead of ESL One Katowice, the organisation has announced.

The Brazilian team booked their place at the upcoming $250,000 major via the offline qualifier, where they defeated INSHOCK and dignitas after losing to mousesports in the first round of the tournament.

During the qualifier, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo stated that the team would try to fly back to Katowice one week before the major to prepare for the tournament, which left fans scratching their heads as the players had only been able to fly to Poland because of a crowdfunding campaign.

FalleN & co leave KaBuM

After it was rumoured that the players were considering their options to be able to attend ESL One Katowice, KaBuM confirmed last night that the team are in talks with other organisations.

"After returning to Brazil, FalleN contacted KaBuM claiming that the sponsorship contract should be amended because the fees paid monthly were no longer enough for the team to be able to participate in the tournaments they wished to attend," a statement from KaBuM reads.

"KaBuM, however, responded by saying that this information was not accurate because the sum of the fees paid by KaBuM and Target Down would be enough to pay for the trips in question.

"At this moment, FalleN claimed he never got a dime from Target Down and, as such, the team would need to receive this additional fee - but they wanted this figure to be paid by KaBuM, since he had 'not been involved in the agreement with Target Down'.

"The question we raised was: how was there no involvement from him with Target Down, since FalleN orchestrated, coordinated, presented and executed the merge between the two teams? KaBuM never met or discussed terms with Target Down, since we only sponsored the players.

"At this moment, FalleN also informed us that the players were already looking for another sponsor in case we did not accept to pay the monthly fee that the other organisation was not paying. But, again much to our surprise, not to replace Target Down but to replace KaBuM (who respected all the clauses in the contracts and paid everything in time).

"Today, February 23, after talking to FalleN, we were informed that the contract will not be renewed and that the players are already negotiating with another organisation.

"We also received a lot of criticism from fans who said we "did not invest" in CS:GO because the prizes were low. We would like to point out that this is not relevant to our organisation because we did not get a percentage from the tournament winnings of our FPS team.

"We will continue investing in tbe Brazilian FPS scene and, soon, we will announce more details about this new project."

The Brazilian team, who are currently known as Games Academy until a new organisation is found, have:

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

Will they go to Katowice or will go another organization? It's so sad, I wanted my Brazilians bros there :(
2015-02-24 18:52
They will attend Katowice. They're just seeking for a new org, probably that pays better. If they can't find one, they'll attend Katowice as "Games Academy", which is their provisional name.
2015-02-24 20:44
ooh ohhh nice I though they won't going. Anyway the sticker will have KaBuM.TD O_o weird if it will. Yes they were bad with KaB 'cuz they didn't pay enough to go to the events that they want to go (like Katow). Hope Brazilians to be catched by a good organization. Maybe Epsilon or Dignitas? =)
2015-02-24 21:37
The sticker wont have Kabum, they claim they havent sent the art to Valve yet

2015-02-24 10:19
I don't think KaBuM would get any of that, neither ProgamingTD. Players would (will?) share that. Basically, they want a stronger main sponsor, so they got rid of the old sponsors.

Hopefully they will attend
2015-02-24 10:30
so wait kabum do not get a percentage of the winnings why? as far as i know the sponsors shud get a part of the winnings right?
2015-02-24 10:33
but they're no longer attatched to this csgo team which qualified to Katowice? so no monies?
2015-02-24 10:53
Most big organizations do not get a percentage of the winnings. To mention a few (pretty sure) that does not get a percentage; NiP, fnatic, Copenhagen Wolves, Dignitas
2015-02-24 11:38
NiP takes 10%.

2015-02-24 12:22
This is HUGE for Brazilian scene. Kabum feels betrayed and will get the #2 team in the country, pay them to get in GA level .. meanwhile another LOL org will pick up GA knowing that they'll have to pay trips to international tournaments and giving them better conditions. Its a win-win situation for us.

2015-02-24 14:34
fnx has not the second best team, dexterity can prove it.

How are the chances of them becoming iBP??
2015-02-24 13:06
0.001% for ibp and 99.99% for team keyd
2015-02-24 13:11
yeah, i thought so... why are so many people putting their expectation on iBP? do they have a store in brazil?
2015-02-24 14:45
idk, and no ibp don't have store in brazil :[
2015-02-24 15:52
IBP helped kabum a lot in Clutch Con, they lent their pc's for kabum, and helped with another things, so people started think they sign with kabum, but is not true, fer say they don't know nothing about it.
2015-02-24 15:57
Anyway, keyd stickers would be awesome. Thx for replying guys

I've a question boys: the qualified team was Kabum organization or FalleN's lineup? I mean, the plays or the team? I know it sounds a bit weird but there is any chance of KabuM sending other lineup to play the major?
2015-02-24 15:38
Players got slots, not orga. Same was when french shuffle happened. Titan with new players have a slot for major cuz they picked up 3 ex LDLC players who was in top8 in previous major, so they got invite. Also, Epsilon played with Uzii, GMX and fxyo only because 3 of them had a slot. Basicly, even team shuffle, and players change orga, while they have 3 of them who was top8 teams on last major, they can go with slot
