paiN lose team

paiN Gaming and their CS:GO squad have decided to go their separate ways, the Brazilian players have revealed.

In a statement to ESPN, Denis "⁠dzt⁠" Fischer explained that this was a team decision as the players feel that "it will be easier to achieve something here [in the United States] without an organisation's name" behind them. 

The Brazilian team, who are currently ranked 45th in the world, recently attended the ESEA Season 24 Global Challenge and the Americas Minor, finishing 5th-6th at both events.

After the Minor, the team decided to stay in the United States to continue their growth as they hope to become the next big squad to emerge from Brazil.

"For now we are fine, we are practising a lot and we do not have any problems with our legal papers," dzt added.

The Brazilian team's roster consists of:

Brazil Paulo "⁠land1n⁠" Felipe
Brazil Alef "⁠tatazin⁠" Pereira
Brazil Denis "⁠dzt⁠" Fischer
Brazil Gabriel "⁠NEKIZ⁠" Schenato
Brazil Marcelo "⁠chelo⁠" Cespedes

Enough people care that ESPN reported on it. ESPN sticks to the big 3 mainly (NFL, MLB, NBA, 4/5 if you want to stretch to include NHL or MLS but both of those are woefully undercovered) and falls hopeless short on everything else. I was shocked when I saw that ESPN reported it.

They might have already made a few contacts with a NA team , not being under some form of contratc will make easier for them to stay in US.

2017-07-08 02:55
Just using a work visa to immigrate to the US. Kappa
2017-07-08 03:01
Maybe pain want them back or they are trying to get an NA org, and without a br org it can be easier

United States floobie
Now comes the question: how will they will survive in America without an org to pay their wages? Going to wash cars or prostitute probably. This makes no sense at all, they would not drop org if they didn't sign with another one already. I bet the team and the org had different plans. GL anyways
2017-07-08 03:14
This. How the hell they r gonna pay their bills?
2017-07-08 03:18
I was thinking the same thing. Also, where are they living now?
2017-07-08 05:11
ex-paiN guys are living in SK's house while FalleN & cia are in Europe playing tournaments and praccin

A very risky decision ,I hope they get an organization soon
2017-07-08 03:20
I believe they already have something in the bag. Otherwise they would not plan to stay abroad
2017-07-08 05:23
I dont know about the others.. But Chelo played like a GOD that tournament last month.
2017-07-08 03:23
Chelo is playing nuts right now, kid has a bright future. Hope he stays in the US, going back to Brazil would hurt his development
2017-07-08 03:26
I wish there were international Tier 3 and lower tournaments
2017-07-08 03:26
Dh open tournaments are for low tier teams
2017-07-08 03:38
And yet paiN and teams like that have no chance of getting there. I mean something lower
2017-07-08 04:01
well they played the qualifier for dh open atlanta but lost to a mix team. The oportunity was given.
2017-07-08 04:26
Maybe, one day, we'll have the technology to play international tourneys online :(

AFAIK paiN was not paying their bills there. They must be trying to join a new org

I'm confused as to what being nameless helps you accomplish I doubt pain as an org was totally useless and they must be giving up more than its worth, or there is something they aren't telling us
2017-07-08 04:07
Brazil Seleskva
Pain wanted them to live and play national tournments in Brazil. They were basically playing by their own with no support (only salaries), but they don't have a gaming house (It seems they are in SK's house and are gonna stay there until SK guys come back from Europe). Being nameless allow them to receive offers from organizations, i mean, they must find a good one being a top 45 team.
2017-07-08 05:57
Thanks for your insight, I understand their decision now
2017-07-08 17:23
Would be funny If they were kicked cuz fl0m won against them with a mix team.
2017-07-08 04:13
Lul, Chelo tweeted he had good news, that ain't good news :\
2017-07-08 04:19
ONE >>>pain
2017-07-08 04:29
Nah I think pain is way better than team one
2017-07-08 05:15
That makes no sense. How are they going to survive in there? Part time jobs so they can live in a shit place with shit connection? That will backfire so much if they don't get hired quickly.
2017-07-08 05:23
Bro AFAIK paiN was not paying their bills there. They're living in SK's house for the moment and they must be looking for a new org/house in America

2017-07-08 08:55
So they are bad because they lose againt argentinians? Miami Flamingos is a good team
2017-07-08 20:14
lmao, people laughing at this team, they can be better than many na teams :> they just arrived on NA scene now... those guys at least are hungry, if they get an opportunity they will embrace it... just wait :>
2017-07-08 10:00
Pain please merge with LG to make a decent T2/3 roster
2017-07-08 11:52
Seems bit fishy maybe, tho I'd still guess that pain's new offer just wasn't good enough for them to accept and they are waiting for better offers. Such a boring story then xd...
2017-07-08 12:54
I agree. I just think i'm reading a gold digger speech from them.
