fer: "I don't think we replicate in matches what we do in practice"

July 12th, 2018 02:00

We caught up with Fernando "fer" Alvarenga ahead of the ESL One Cologne final and quizzed him on MIBR's recent struggles.

The Brazilian team cut a frustrating figure at their first tournament under MIBR as they were sent packing in the group stage following defeats to FaZe and BIG.

In this interview, conducted ahead of the title decider, fer opens up about the team's disappointing run in Cologne, his own struggles inside the game this year after being named the third best player of 2017, the recent in-game leadership changes, and more.

With you guys joining MIBR, FalleN and coldzera have done a lot of interviews talking about how it feels to represent the brand. How has it been for you personally? What is your relationship with MIBR?

When I started playing I didn't know what MIBR meant, I was just playing for fun. Then, when I started getting interested in the professional scene, someone told me that we had a team competing abroad, MIBR, that they were representing Brazil. That's when I understood that there was a professional scene, that there were tournaments, big tournaments, and that we had a Brazilian team there. So that's cool. For me, to play under this tag is amazing, it's like a dream for us. We were playing for SK, and SK is a legendary tag as well, but now we are defending a Brazilian international tag. We are defending our organization and our country behind it. For me, it is an amazing feeling.

Playing your first tournament under them, did you feel like you had to have a really good tournament, a really good showing in Cologne?

We expected to win because we had won the last two ESL One Colognes, we were super excited and motivated to play the tournament, it was the first time we were representing MIBR. But we were doing a lot of mistakes in the games, and I think that in the scene nowadays, the top 15 or 20 teams can beat each other, so if you want to win you have to make fewer mistakes than your opponents. Everyone is going to make mistakes so you have to play with it.

How prepared are you with this team right now, how close to the maximum of what you can be?

We are not even close to the top, to be honest, we are doing a lot of mistakes and we keep doing a lot of mistakes. If we want to improve, we have to cut out the mistakes. We are doing the same mistakes every time. We are going to change some things, let's see if it becomes better.

The mistakes, are they on an individual basis or is it more as a team?

I think it's both. In practice, we are playing really well, but I don't think that we replicate in matches what we do in practice. So we are just practising and we are not doing those things in matches. That's bad. And individually, we are doing a lot of mistakes as well, we are making some dumb decisions, that's bad for us and we are struggling because of that.

Last year you finished as the third best player in our rankings, so, obviously, it was a pretty good year for you. How has it been this year, do you feel that other teams are catching up and making it hard for your style to be successful?

Last year, coldzera was top1, I was top 3, I think FalleN was top 5 or 6, something like that, which was because we had a lot of success. We were winning a lot of tournaments, and when you are winning you have the confidence, we were really confident last year. This year we are struggling, and the top 20... I will not make it, you know? I'm not sad about that, I just want to improve, as I said we are doing a lot of mistakes and we have to work on them. If we want to win again and have top 20 players or whatever, we have to work on our mistakes.

How has the English communication been for you?

I don't have problems with communicating in English, the only problem I see in our team is when we have two seconds to adjust to a clutch situation, in a 3v3 or a 2v2, and you have two segments, you have to picture it in your mind and you have to express yourself to your teammates in English in two seconds, and sometimes it is hard for us. You have the information, you have to be one step ahead, and you can't say everything in two seconds. If you try to say it sometimes it just comes out as a mess. I think the English communication is not a problem, but in messy situations it's hard for us.

At the end of the SK time coldzera started calling, you switched around a lot of things, you went to a lot of events. Did it feel like that the last few months were an experimental phase in a way? You tried different things just to see how they would work, and then be fresh for the new organization and the rest of the year?

About the in-game leader part, I think FalleN had too much on himself, on his shoulders. I was like, "FalleN, maybe we should try someone else calling, just for you to have some new ideas". If coldzera starts calling, or stewie starts calling, or me, or whatever, we can have more ideas and you could add it to your style, your mind, your way of in-game leading. We tried coldzera as a caller but, at the end of the day, it wasn't good because FalleN was our leader and when you give space to others to lead, sometimes it is bad because you lose confidence. I think we started losing confidence in our strats and in our way of playing, but, at the end of the day, for me, our way to play, our style, is good, because you could see that in the past we were winning a lot, we just need to adjust our team individually and cut out our mistakes as a team, and we don't have to change our in-game leader. That's why we came back to FalleN IGLing full time and I think it's better for us.

Just a fun question, since you mentioned it: in the future, one day, do you ever see yourself being an in-game leader? Is that something you think you could do?

No, I don't want to be an in-game leader, I think it's too much. I think that when you have a team that trusts in you, it's easy to do. If you say, "Guys, let's eat sh#t now", they are going to eat sh#t. But when they don't trust you and you have a good picture in mind, sometimes it is risky... I take risks sometimes because it's my style, and coldzera is the opposite, he doesn't like to take risks. And if I say, "Guys, let's rush B now", he is going to be "no no no, it's going to be bad", so we would start losing confidence. So I don't want to in-game lead, I would never want to do it.

You missed out on the playoffs after losing to BIG, a disappointment at the time, but now, seeing them in the grand final, does it make it a little bit less disappointing in the end?

No, I don't think so. I don't care if they win the tournament, my heart will not ache less. I don't think they are really good and I don't see BIG winning this tournament. I think Na`Vi is going to crush them. I don't know why, but we can't beat BIG. I think it's the third time in a row that we have lost against them. But to be honest, I don't think they are really good, I don't think they can beat us, but they are beating us... so something is wrong, right?

Fer is a aggressive player and felps was an aggressive player too. THE PROBLEM : Stew is an aggressive player when he should be the "bait" to coldzera can kill like taco done it before
2018-07-12 03:51
Yes, Stew is the last player you'd want to have in that team. It has to be one of the worst roster moves ever.. They should have kept TACO and kicked Boltz for a better player, but taking someone that doesn't like to play your strat heavy style, doesn't speak the team's native language, and that duplicate fer style isn't gonna cut it sorry..

2018-07-12 02:21
The truth? He completely lost touch to reality as we can see on several occasions (other interviews aswell) where he shows no respect to even the best teams. He has been lost since the scene stabilized and most of the teams are back together without injuries like device, guardian or olof soon to be. They had a good time where they were most likely the best team but to be fair, the competition during their major titles was at an all time low. If he starts to give respect to teams that work hard and beat them as BiG, which takes humility and dedication, there might be a chance for them to come back to at least competing for higher placings.

No one can stay on top 4ever... 2017 there was no excuses boy.. come on... how many times did they beat faze in 2017? how many incredible comebacks did they do? what about resilience? BiG isnt staying on top anytime soon.. you could feel how Cologne meant to BiG... it wasnt like LG on Face it season 3 where they started owning... come on bruh he respects them but he said the truth, BiG isnt an elite team and will not make long runs like Cologne btw i love cyx.. holy.. it was tragic :(
2018-07-12 06:26
I didnt say that BiG would be staying "on top" would mean coming going consistantly to finals obviously, they still got all the tools and dedication to get back to a top15 team. I may have been to harsh on mibr, but I can simply see that results got to their heads and these quotes are confirmations in my eyes. Lets see if mibr can come back and how BiG will show in the next months, that doesnt mean I compare them, mibr should have the goal to be top 5, BiG to be top 15. Both requires respects.

He just said the truth, and BIG got crushed against NaVi
2018-07-12 04:25
So they lost to NaVi, how does that diminish their earlier success and beating a solid team in mibr aswell as a top3 team in FaZe? Doesnt even make sense. BIG was the better team in all aspects, deal with it and show some respect, but manners are not taught to everyone I guess.
2018-07-12 06:05
How am i disrespecting BIG? I just said what fer said himself "they aren't that good" Imo, NaVi and Astralis are better. Still, big is pretty good and better than MiBR
2018-07-12 19:48
"not being that good" and "astralis and NaVi are better" are 2 completely different storys. They are not as good as astralis or NaVi f.e. in general, no suprise there, but that doesnt mean that every team that isnt as good as these 2 are automatically "not that good" which is lack of respect and it shows in results. Nowadays every team in the top 40 or even top50 are very good and BIG are probably closer to the top 15 currently than the top 40.

I don't have problems with communicating in English, the only problem I see in our team is when we have two seconds to adjust to a clutch situation, in a 3v3 or a 2v2, and you have two segments, you have to picture it in your mind and you have to express yourself to your teammates in English in two seconds, and sometimes it is hard for us. You have the information, you have to be one step ahead, and you can't say everything in two seconds. If you try to say it sometimes it just comes out as a mess. I think the English communication is not a problem, but in messy situations it's hard for us. im just gonna leave this here...

"No, I don't think so. I don't care if they win the tournament, my heart will not ache less. I don't think they are really good and I don't see BIG winning this tournament. I think Na`Vi is going to crush them. I don't know why, but we can't beat BIG. I think it's the third time in a row that we have lost against them. But to be honest, I don't think they are really good, I don't think they can beat us, but they are beating us... so something is wrong, right?" something wrong? yes you are wrong obviously. you suck and BIG is better than you. you lost to them three times a row hahahaha salty fer what a bad loser

No he isnt. fer clearly lacks any kind of sportsmanship and respect. BiG were the better team this time and apparently all the times they meet, so they kinda outplay you. Deal with it.

He was right NaVi>BIG
2018-07-12 04:26
He is right though; Also he recognizes his team is playing like shit because they are losing to teams like BIG.

Lmao. 'Don't think (big) are really good'—'but they are beating us so something is wrong' Yes something is wrong and that means you and your team is literal shit. Hopefully (or hopelessly) fer doesn't eat those words.
2018-07-12 02:55
Not really, He is right about BIG being a shit team. And he predicted navi winning BIG
2018-07-12 04:27
I didn't say he was wrong, in fact he's right about at least all of them, including him admitting he and mibr are currently garbage and that he might not make top 20. About big being shit it's not like they abused a bug this time, they played well. We will see if big's run really was a fluke. But obviously they can't stand a chance against s1mple being godlike 95%+ of the time and electronic not far behind him.
2018-07-12 04:34
Yup
2018-07-12 04:40
How is beating them 3 times on 3 different occasions and tournaments a fluke? If anything, mibrs days are over and their fluke is finally over as soon as device, guardian and soon olof are back from injuries and most of the top teams finally stabilized after a complete lack of competition a year ago.
2018-07-12 06:08
I agree actually, mibr/sk sucks now. And they have lost to big every single time lmao. I was referring to big's 2nd place run at cologne as a possible fluke and that we will see if it was or was not one.
2018-07-12 07:01
As team who realistically cant have the goal to become a top 5 team in the next months, I wouldnt call it a fluke, I'd just call it a great success and hope they can get back to be a top 15 team which would be great after what they have been trough with all the problems lately. In my opinion, you can just wait to see that they are not getting to the next finals in a tier 1 event and then call this a fluke. Its just not realistic. :D

Once again, a mibr player confirms that THEY CAN'T COMMUNICATE FAST ENOUGH IN ENGLISH. I've been saying this since before Stewie joined. No matter who they kick or who joins, as long as they keep talking in English, they will suck.

Listen, they can communicate properly in English, but in panic / very tricky situations they can't say two phrases in like 3 seconds, something they can in Portuguese. If you have ever watched a POV of them (on the full BR roster days), you know how fast they communicate and FOR SURE only FalleN is able to tho the same in English. He even gave examples, of the 2v2 or 3v3 situations, that's exactly the point: when they have to communicate with accuracy and speed. And they can't do this as precisely and as fast as they do in Portuguese.

"Listen, they can communicate properly in English" i'm pretty sure they can't, listening to cold and boltz on interviews or playing FPL shows it perfectly And i don't think you unterstood my point. I recently watched fallen talking about the possibility of having cheaters in professional games, and he kept pronouncing* "shitters" instead of "cheaters". Those simple kinds of mistakes prove you don't really look to improving your english skills, which should be 100% better at this point
2018-07-12 03:37
This is true. Even fallen's english is poor. ANd it's supposed to be the best among them? Don't want to imagine how boltz and cold communicate then...

i think the life experience of bringing someone from the NA to play with them must be really nice, but i don't think going international with at least 2 of your players barely speaking english was a good idea. Anyway, gl to them

Fallen speaks broken english (in terms of not stressing the correct syllables and pronouncing stuff wrong - like when he says shitters instead of cheaters), fer is probably the best among them.

I like how he says communication isn't a problem but on the next sentence he says it's hard for them to communicate in english under pressure.
2018-07-12 04:08
Must be some special brasilian logic, same as calling a team shit which beat them 3 times on 3 different tournaments, he got no respect or sportsmanship, just a poor kid.
2018-07-12 06:09
"No, I don't want to be an in-game leader, I think it's too much. I think that when you have a team that trusts in you, it's easy to do. If you say, "Guys, let's eat sht now", they are going to eat sht. But when they don't trust you and you have a good picture in mind, sometimes it is risky... I take risks sometimes because it's my style, and coldzera is the opposite, he doesn't like to take risks. And if I say, "Guys, le'ts rush B now", he is going to be "no no no, it's going to be bad", so we would start losing confidence. So I don't want to in-game lead, I would never want to do it." Basically how FNS got cucked at C9

Pretty much anyone will turn toxic if one realizes he's the best player, carrying your team throughout all tournaments. It takes a really mentally strong & evolved individual to avoid becoming toxic

I totally agree with you, but to stay a bit humble is never wrong. Especially when your team is playing like shit, imo he just sounds like an arrogant cunt with those statements
