g3x reform, to compete in NA

Following the formation of WinOut, a team comprising members of Keyd Stars and g3x, a new g3x lineup has formed in the ashes and will be seeking to move to the United States and play there.

A miniature Brazil shuffle got under way earlier this week as a new WinOut team was announced that was composed of players from Keyd Stars and g3x, two teams who had been competing to be Brazil's third best team.

Following the dissolution of those two lineups, observers of the Brazilian scene noticed that Lucas "⁠steel⁠" Lopes, a player previously of Luminosity fame, left his own CNB team and that the formation of another Brazilian outfit was in the works.


steel will try his chances in NA again with g3x

The new G3nerationX team (abbreviated as g3x) has now been announced and it features steel alongside the likes of two former Keyd Stars players, Jean-Michel "⁠mch⁠" D'Oliveira and Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe, as well as a player from INTZ (Caike "⁠caike⁠" Costa and a player from Santos.DeX (Rafael "⁠pava⁠" Pavanelli).

The organisation have announced that they will stay in Brazil for a few months in order to finalise visas for the players and then attempt to move to the United States in July-August in order to compete in the leagues there.

This move would make g3x the fourth Brazilian team to make an exodus to shores with more riches and more opportunities in CS:GO, namely North America.

The new g3x roster is:

Brazil Lucas "⁠steel⁠" Lopes
Brazil Jean-Michel "⁠mch⁠" D'Oliveira
Brazil Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe
Brazil Caike "⁠caike⁠" Costa
Brazil Rafael "⁠pava⁠" Pavanelli

Sadly, that is probably true. But then again, I am all for it, because maybe once all the NA teams are getting beat by the Brazilian, the orgs will drop the NA players and pick up new ones who actually give a damn to improving.

Probably NA orgs got too excited with LG and TS success and think they are going to get easy money with BR teams. It's true, winout and g3x have good players with potential, but they should have stayed in Brazil and showed that they are strong here first. Right now they are gonna get stomped by NA premier, at least Winout. Tho if I had received some big offer from NA I'd go, even knowing that I suck.

To be fair in the ESL pro league i would guess they wont come last, so that kindof makes it worth it. people talk about Brazil as this great place for CS and there is some sick talent. Though people need to realize that there is only enough talent for 2 teams (and honestly TS is good but i dont think they have the skill on certain players to be tier 1)

Hmm, there are some steps before. Yesterday ESL started their premier league here, which means optimisticaly in 2 seasons maybe we get a pro league. Players move to NA because it's where the international circuits and "important people on the scene" are, I don't like it too. But Europe has tradition in CS, NA has a lot of orgs, it's hard to expect scenes like BR and China to be included in those circuits soon, specially with visa issues.

NA should make a huge shuffle to gather all top NA players in one team to start achiving titles and give back some pride to North Americans fans... Hiko, Skadoodle, shroud, Elige, Tarik

First of all, you can't make a good team with 5 brainless players. Fallen > Skadoodle coldzera > tarik fnx > shroud fer > Elige taco > Hiko that's why LG is way better than any NA team, because there's no weak point compared to them. compared to EU taco is weak, but compared to NA taco is godlike.

GL g3x! IMO, only kNg will perform well in this team... I kinda felt bad when he left keyd, im pretty sure he would cause way more impact on that old line up aside with destiny if they were to compete in NA. For the future I bet he'll be the first spare brazilian player in NA (in case he got a good english)

Brazil hugoooo
I'm impressed by how they managed to create to fucking good lineups for both WinOut and g3x... TS will have a hard time to keep their position of 2nd best BR team. And c9, Liquid and CLG will have an even harder time to qualify for tournaments, once all the four BR teams are on the main leagues at the same time.
