TACO confirms SK exit

MIRAA
March 22nd, 2018 21:56

Epitacio "TACO" de Melo has confirmed that he is no longer part of SK Gaming's roster.

In a Twitlonger post, Epitacio "TACO" de Melo wrote that this is "perhaps the hardest decision" of his life and noted that he has decided to close "the final chapter" of what he described as "the most beautiful book" he has written.  

The announcement comes just hours after HLTV.org reported that SK's trio of Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo, Marcelo "coldzera" David and Fernando "fer" Alvarenga are looking to revamp the squad, with Na`Vi's Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev having been identified as their main targets.

TACO leaves SK

TACO had been part of the team since November 2015, when he was recruited by FalleN's squad together with Lincoln "fnx" Lau after impressing for Games Academy. During his time on Luminosity/SK, he helped the team to win several international tournaments, including two Majors in 2016.

"Some weeks ago I realised I was not happy," TACO wrote. "A few days ago, I decided to find the joy to play that I have not felt in a long time, even if that meant that I had to leave the team that I had helped to become one of the best in the history of the game.

"The jersey is heavy and not everyone can wear it for such a long period. With great pride and no regrets, I wore it for two years and four months. It took a lot of determination, work and dedication.

"During all this time, the external pressure on me was huge, and that is perhaps one of the things that led to this outcome.

"I leave today after leaving my mark and my legacy during these 28 months: 13 trophies, 21 finals and 10 semi-finals. I leave with no regrets, anger or remorse. I leave, but I leave the doors open."

In a follow-up tweet, TACO has since guaranteed that he will continue to play and that he will take some days to analyse the offers that he will get.

SK currently have:

Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass (on loan from Immortals)

Taco is no longer the little kid that hide behind fallen, he is mature to hold his own. His wing are ready for him to fly SOLO, this also tells you that their friendship is so weak and can not handle any challenges. this really tells you how hard it is for vp to stay together so long. And this will be the single most successful br team anr no other br team will come close.

nahh, taco did so much for the team, just watch some demos first and stop looking only at the scoreboards
2018-03-23 00:53
I can play the support/entry and die as well, should SK pick me up? XD
2018-03-23 02:52
its not only that, can you also solo secure bombsites or play in shit bombsites while other players get much more action => impact potencial in the game while others get other more impactful potencial, for example, solo stand on B site on mirage??? thx for comment you clearly dont understand shit about cs kisses
2018-03-23 03:16
>solo secure bombsites Since when could TACO solo SECURE bombsites? Like I said, I can solo LOSE bombsite against pro teams as well. Should SK pick me up then? wow I can taste the salt!
2018-03-23 03:33
"solo stand on B site on mirage" i gave you an example, I can elaborate on my example: taco holding B alone (normally with awp) when sk does the setup where cold (instead of going short) goes A site hidden to suprise with a suprise element. When the enemy dont go A directly and take mid control + catwalk, do you think Taco is in a good position to hold be from 2 entraces?? Plus B is a low frag position to be on ct on mirage not salty! btw, if you are so good, im genuinely interested to know lvl faceit and elo and that shit, or in case of that, which team do you play? :)
2018-03-23 05:59
+1 taco is a huge impact player.
2018-03-23 08:57
You've been typing a lot and giving examples. Unfortunately, none of your replies address my doubt on TACO. I genuinely think English is the barrier here. Let me try to dumb down my argument for you. My point: >TACO can't do shit with his shit roles. Your point >TACO plays shit roles. Let me put my question in another way in case you missed it again. >Of all the players that play shit roles, what makes TACO a good shit-role player? or >What distinguishes a excellent shit-role player and a terrible shit-role player? also, the more you commit ad hominem, the more braindead you look. You do seem to be a reasonable guy to come up with actual arguments. I think you can do better than that.
2018-03-23 16:25
Firstly, I must agree that English is a barrier here, probably I don't understand well you/explain myself since English is not my main language I think I can partially agree with your first point, but in my opinion that happens cause he gets into a difficult position when he plays shit roles, but I am not saying he can't do better, totally not ">Of all the players that play shit roles, what makes TACO a good shit-role player?" Answering this other point, I understand what you say since Taco is not he only player in the world who plays (for example) B site Mirage alone, obviously, but (im not 100% sure about this point, I didn't do the math) Taco must be one of the players that get more percentage of shit roles alongside all current maps. ">What distinguishes an excellent shit-role player and a terrible shit-role player?" Unfortunately, there's not many players who sacrifices themselves and put their ego aside so that their team/star players can shine, but I can just point that number of frags or deaths and HLTV scores don't translate how a player perform well on a game. I'll give one example: Taco playing door as T on cache. Do you ever watch him play that position? How much pressure he makes with his presence, how he takes info jumping around the door, how he acts when a T or CT kill happens. I'm not saying that other skilled players cant do that job, but he does (although its a boring one) and where are the extra HLTV points for his fantastic performance on that position? So about your question, can't generalize an answer but I guarantee you that its not HLTV rating for sure Generally I understand your arguments and I can partially agree with you, but people in general must praise Taco and what he always had been done while he played on SK, because Im totally sure he is a high skilled player and in my opinion he should get the star role in the next team he joins just to prove what he is capable of
2018-03-23 19:58
I don't expect anyone to accept my perspective. That's good at least you can partially agree with me. The reason that I think TACO is bad is not just about stats, it's the way he approaches his roles. Solo hold a bombsite for example. The objective of solo holding a bombsite should neither be dying in vain, nor to successfully hold the site. To do a good job, you should try your best to delay your enemies (using position and nades). The best scenario is to get a kill or two and then stay alive. The minimum requirement is to get a kill before you go down so a retake is at least possible. If you just die whenever you solo hold a bombsite, you are not contributing. That's TACO's biggest problem to me. He's not good at staying alive. More often than not he dies in vain. Therefore I kicked in the joke that "I can solo a bombsite and die as well." If you look at players like Xyp9x. He doesn't have fancy stats, which makes sense because of the role he plays, but he is extremely intelligent in the way he approaches his role. There are numerous times I saw him solo hold a site, got a kill, stayed alive, got to an advanced position to isolate the enemy team. Those moves lay the ground for a successful retake. peace my friend.
2018-03-23 20:44
Again I can partially agree with you and your perspective about Taco. Surely he is aware of what you said about solo BS and im sure that if he does that during 27 months of leadership of Fallen&Cold, there's probably a reason for it, but I see many times he getting shit weapons (ump and shit) so maybe that explains in some way how successful he was sometimes not holding well BSs. Apart from that, again, I agree in some way about what you saying. Anyway, thanks for the discussion, sry if in any mean I was salty! peace my friend

True his performance was starting to dip, but Fallen seemed to have the intentions to keep him on the team for a bit longer (as the simple/flamie deal wouldn't have been able to go through until 2019).
2018-03-22 22:28

No he didn't or he'd leave earlier. He just wanted the $$$ from contract.
2018-03-23 00:27
No that's people like VP and Navi etc. Taco played less than 3 years and was apart of the most powerhouse csgo lineup and left the team on his own will without being a constant burden to his teammates like friberg for example. Taco has won ESL proleague, game blast and 3rd at the major in under 4 months time. Lots of players continue to play years after their prime.
2018-03-23 00:34
he was playing bad at the end but still give him the respect he deserves, that was very succesfull run in LG/SK

Well he's not a bad player. He was doing much better on IMT and in the 3 tournaments he won with SK. Playing like a top tier player. He's not doing well individually now, but I think this could be fixed changing his roles and SK's setups, especially on CT side. Which might happen now, with a different and hopefully better player

Nahhhh, he is young and a good player, probably will find some lower tier team, like LG or T1, maybe even lower with NTC or any other team in Brazil. His english is not that bad and he's a cool guy, maybe some NA lower tier could be a option.
2018-03-22 22:27

2018-03-22 22:53
trash talk = him not holding back opinions or just wanting to spice up the competition. block peoples = blocking people who constantly talk shit to u and tell u that u are shit and don't deserve to be on a team yeah id block them also. arrogant = no that's just confidence in himself and the team.

2018-03-22 23:27
nao eh hater, é realidade kkkkkkkkkk eu acompanho o cs desde a versão 1.5 e eu posso afirmar com categoria que o TACO, entre os times tier 1 da HISTORIA, ta entre os 3 piores FACILMENTE. Foi o pior profissional que ja vi atuar por um time br até hoje no nivel tier 1
2018-03-22 23:54
some say he is bad, but he isn't, they were a very successfull team afterall and to be that successfull every player has to perform. Taco was always there to deliver good cs, not at coldzera or fer level but people always like to criticize... IMO it is going to be really hard to find a player to fill TACO's role for SK, at least to match his level. Good luck for him and to SK aswell.

2018-03-22 23:36
so many hateful, disrespecful comments, why is it so hard to treat someone with respect dispite how good or bad someone´s skill in the game or in the outside world. True that he has less skill, , gameplay than the others but he had his role within the team,and I think many times he did well whithin his limits. There´s no reason to offend someone just for not being perfect, if you guys so perfect, why none of you play at their level? If he left the team or was kicked, so what?Why call someone trash?GUess its hard for people to have education, respect for others, sometimes I feel so ashamed being a brazilian, most of the sick posts in hltv comes from childish, spoiled, immature people. INstead of calling him or anyone garbage, just say thankyou, wish you luck? The guy was akways playing with tremendous pressure, and like he said, not everyone´s capable of wearing SK shirt. It is easy to criticize others from the outside, even though he is really less skilled, fragger than the others, he is still probably better than most of the commentators in hltv forum. Anyway, thanks Taco, good luck and dont give up in your search to play enjoying the game :)

dream team... 1. coldzera (number 1 of word...) 2. fer (number 3) 3. fallen (number 6) 4. s1mple (number 8 ) 5. flamie ... now the 'faze clan' is fucked ... ; )
2018-03-22 23:42
And you can expect most of them to be ranked in the top 5-6 next year if that team works... In fact I could see 4 of them in the top 5...
2018-03-23 00:00
1/ Coldzera speaks 1/10 english. 2/ s1mple was monster for the last couple of months with the AWP, now back to rifle role again. I dont think this team will work so good but we will see.
2018-03-23 10:05
The move is happening... As much as I’ve bashed TACO on here for being a weak individual player, at least he has a boatload of trophies to show for his time on LG/SK, and he helped coldzera become the best by doing his donkey work.

Thank you, Taco, for all the glory that you propose for us playing on SK. When the results is not coming, changes has to be done, and this time it needs your left. Maybe with this you can prove that thoses idiots that hates you are all wrong and you gonna back more strong.
2018-03-22 23:58

Brazil Lorens 
Yeah, still too much shady at all. I know that the decision didn't come today, specially with the 20 min long farewell video being posted along the initial twits... Also @mamacitadoglobal posted something about "push forward in time". Maybe this is just a preparation for the rumored mibr team. Maybe. I really don't see s1mple and flamie fitting with the "trio" so I can only see this as some weird transition with players and the SK org for their contract termination (pointed to be in the north's summer).

Its funny how suddenly a team can stop performing
2018-03-23 09:16
Mental aspect of the game.. People lose motivation as a team (or lose faith/trust in teammates) and then struggle no matter how much potential/skill they have collectively as a team. Similar thing happened with VP. Once that mental slide started happening it was all over with. During severe slumps, it takes having to shake up the squad sometimes in order to reinvigorate that motivation. It's a similar thing in Hockey (to use a sport as an example).. Sometimes if certain forward lines are in a slump and just not performing anymore, the coach will often change up the lines and split them up with different players on the team to spark them and get them motivated again.

Somehow I don't think this will be the last time we see him in a top BR team. I can totally see him returning to coldzera and co. after several bad results from SK without Taco's efficiency in a role that only he can do.

The Downfall of SK will continue kicking Taco wont help anything he was a very important piece of their team only player that i can think of that could replace taco is Steelega

S1mple and Flamie will be much better replacement. SK with S1mple will be no.1 again I think...

Worst decision ever !! First fnx and now TACO, FalleN would never achieve anything with s1mple ... FalleN should have tried his country fellowmen Lucas1 or Hen1
2018-03-23 13:58
Respect for Taco, a hugely underrated player and legit one of the best aimers in the game. He will have a chance to shine in another team.

Its sad to see that he leaves cuz of what ppl say. Same thing happend to Fifflaren from Nip years ago. Its so frustrating to see that ppl dont see the game in a bigger way then the stats on the board. There is a reason why coldzera is the best there is a reason why messi is the best. Its a teamplay game whit diffrent roles. The amount of info that taco provided to his team m8s is going to history. Im gonna be total honest and say this is a big lose For SK and in 4-5 months ppl are gonna see it feel it. Same thing that was whit fifflaren. Cant understand how you ppl can look yourselfs in the mirror.. You destroyed the joy for him to even play the game. Respect taco and hope you will get the joy back.

yeah except taco was weighing them down. When you need X amount of frags and you got a guy who isn't performing close games will side against them. There's a reason why guy's like mario gomez were dropped from teams cause they weren't doing their jobs and can be rehired if they do their job adequately again. Fifflaren is an awful example as he was a mediocre player that wasn't adding anything to the team (amazing strats, making other players better ,etc).

2018-03-24 01:13
Ppl tend to forget, Taco was a decent player Ppl tend to forget, Taco had some skill, and actually some rare moments of raw skill But Ppl understood , Taco always wanted to be a star No, Taco actually Thought he was a star But of course he wasnt. Taco top 1000 csgo players So bye bye bot

This guy is probably the most underrated player in csgo. Sk's success and their win streaks dont just come from cold,fallen, and fer. This guy right here sacrifices a lot so that players like cold and fer can shine. Not to mention very hardworking player. To all the retards saying he is a bot,its deserved or whatever,i assume they start watching cs since 2016 or something. Especially,brazilians who talk shit about him. Like wow you guys are totally braindead for not supporting your own countryman. He is actually a very good player but individually putted down for the likes of cold and the others. Anyways goodluck on your journey taco! All the best

I completely agree with u, tyvm for these words. There is too much hate between some of us brazilians without reason. About Taco, i heard her mother is having health problems so he's not being able to deal with all the real life pressure afterall. tnx for everything Taquito
