MIBR to trade Stewie2K for TACO and zews with Liquid - Report

Striker
December 11th, 2018 21:49

MIBR are set to trade Jake "Stewie2K" Yip to Liquid in return for Epitacio "TACO" de Melo and coach Wilton "zews" Prado, according to a report from ESPN.

The report states that MIBR are looking to return to a fully Brazilian roster, which puts Tarik "tarik" Celik on the chopping block, as well, with the organization searching for a new home for the American player.

If the move comes to fruition, TACO will reunite with three of his former Luminosity and SK teammates, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo, Fernando "fer" Alvarenga, and Marcelo "coldzera" David, after a seven-month spell with Liquid, as will zews, who left the core in July 2016 to join up with Immortals as a player before transitioning back into a coaching role in Liquid by the end of the year.

TACO and zews are reportedly on their way back to FalleN's team

After zews left SK, FalleN's squad did not field a coach for the next two years until they joined forces with renowned analyst Janko "YNk" Paunović in August. What will happen to the Serbian following the move is uncertain, but he is expected to be on his way out of the organization.

The report comes days after MIBR's stunning loss to Liquid in the semi-finals of ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals, as the team continued to struggle competing for titles after a series of mixed results with Stewie2K and tarik.

Liquid, on the other hand, have arguably had their best year in 2018, as they reached six big-event finals and won two smaller titles at cs_summit 2 and SuperNova CS:GO Malta, alongside deep runs at several more events.

The changes will not affect MIBR's lineup for BLAST Pro Series Lisbon, where Braxton "swag" Pierce is set to stand-in for fer. The Portuguese tournament could turn out to be Stewie2K's and tarik's last appearance under the MIBR banner.

MIBR's incomplete roster upon the change would look as follows:

Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
Brazil Epitacio "TACO" de Melo

Brazil Wilton "zews" Prado (coach)

United States Tarik "tarik" Celik (transfer listed)

Liquid's new team for the next year would be:

United States Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski
United States Nick "nitr0" Cannella
Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic
Canada Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken
United States Jake "Stewie2K" Yip

TL being 4th was where they belonged anyways. Liquid SHOULD not make the move unless TACO wanted to do it.
2018-12-11 23:26
yeah, it seems like zews and TACO wouldn't be kicked from Liquid, instead it seems like they wanted to leave and Liquid graciously allowed them to explore their options. Liquid is honestly the best ORG in esports

Kscerato is a joke, isn’t even near to tier 4 level.
2018-12-12 12:32
fnx isn't playing anymore, I don't think he really cares about cs competitive right now, he's a player for team one but as "backup" I doubt he would play again with how well things are going for him lol
2018-12-12 04:23
+1
2018-12-12 09:26
I agree with all you said, at the sime time I see a different point of view for this. FNX has reportedly never been much of a training or practice guy, they always said he did what he did out of talent for cs. If FNX committed himself in some months of training to get back into shape, he could be a reasonable player for mibr alongside taco and zews. Such a hypothetical rooster could get into decent shape in some 2 or 3 months of hard practice.
2018-12-12 11:33
So let’s get fnx and wait 3-4 months until he “get good again”, something that isn’t right. Who needs kNgv or chelo?
2018-12-12 12:33
Well, "training" is much more than just knowing the good spots, a map, or having a good aim, also helps teamwork and other stuff players on your team are likely to get better if someone better than them train with them and help talking about possible spots, what he does, etc. Not saying he is, or isnt like that, but for what you said, someone that doesn't cooperate/contribute with the team is way worse than someone that doesnt have a good aim (tarik spray LUL jk.)

They had a slump, if they had kept full br they would probably had gotten to tier 1 much faster
2018-12-11 22:14
They were t3 with BR lineup, almost t2 with this mix. They wont make it back as t1 again, sorry
2018-12-11 22:35

Best move for Liquid was to hold onto zews forever because he was vital for the roster. zonic and zews are the best coaches atm. No one in NA could even get close to zews' coaching other than maybe sgares
2018-12-11 22:22
Someone with brains, same what happened to lg/sk with zews they had a lot of shit then when they part ways with him, the team wasn't the same anymore, I'dk how can liquid let him go, unless his contract is about to expire

yeah maybe zews wanted to go back. Can't stop that. crazy that more people aren't talking about zews. TACO is a good support for cold and stewie is skilled but zews is almost one of a kind.
2018-12-11 23:16
Indeed, stewie might be skilled but he don't know how to use it properly, but liquid reached where they reached because of mastermind zews, I can see now liquid going full mm style specially if stewie gets on boatd

yeah ikr. Idk zews was gone for 2 tournaments and nitr0 still held his own during those tournaments as an IGL. I would love to see nitr0 do well. I think he is the best in Liquid because he went from entry to support to IGL to AWP and IGL. He will sacrifice anything for the team. I hope Liquid succeeds but I think MiBR is better off right now.

MIBR drop to shit after taco left Liquid became good after taco came in. U cant support him with stats but he is doing something right to team to success. No we will see american peanut brains together and will drop outside of top5
2018-12-11 23:11
Erm, SK went to shit BEFORE taco left.

2018-12-11 23:11
Thats what mibr fans said and then they became straight up Tier 3, liquid will become worse with stewie. Stewie is better Individualy, i give you that, but Taco plays the Support role way better than stew does. And liquid already have enough firepower.

2018-12-11 22:10
really man ? how the fk can you play with the team when nobody follow your call in the the game, Tarik was IGl, Support. Stewie is a B site player look the way C9 won the major was personal handling situations. Think be for you said, they left MIBR becuz tairk can not a Support for MIBR, becuz it was too hard for him, Fer pushing too fast as Cold rote too fast , how the fk Tarik go to the spot to support them ?

Astralis will dominate on the next major no matter what the condition of the other top tier teams gonna be. They don't gonna lose a tournament unless they are sick of winning or someone find out how to counter strat glaive and they have proved that as they are in the 1st spot in the team ranking ladder since April or May (I am not so sure about that) of 2018. So the European domination will continue over NA...

I don't understand why Liquid would do this. They have never been better than they are right now and they're the second best team in the world atm. Dropping a great coach and adding Stewie2K won't make them number one. By all rights they should've won more 1st places than they did this year and I'm sure they would win more if they would just keep at it. This feels much akin to what Mouz did with Snax - Mouz had never been better, then they added Snax and fucked everything up.

after bashing their head against a brick wall (astralis) for the better part of a year, they needed to make a change. only time will tell if this is a good change, but they needed to do something if they felt they need to reach the next level.
2018-12-11 22:17
Now they will reach the next level of negativity lol. Didn't stewie move to mibr to win more trophies? P won zero. Stewie is the most overrated na garbage out there, poor tarik

2018-12-11 23:52
+1 if stewie can call for liquid and the calls blend well with his teams playstyle it could be a differencemaker also sgares coach plz
2018-12-12 03:12
I can't quite see the logic of what you`re saying. If they would lose to other teams as well on a more regular basis then yes, you could say they should consider a roster change. But to change your roster just because you`ve lost to Astralis once to many times.. oh well, by that logic every team out there should do roster changes because Astralis would wreck them all. I think they should maybe work a bit more on their strats against lesser equipped opponents. I`ve seen them giving away quite a few rounds to upgraded pistols against Astralis and really think it might have changed the outcome of the match.

They have lost to astralis in 6 big tournaments since taco joined, obviously they are doing pretty well against the other teams, but they cant get over the hump with astralis. it feels like a move out of desperation as when teams reach this point, things can stagnate, and morale inevitably drops. maybe liquid decided they need more firepower to go toe-to-toe with astralis. i think they had two options to get over the hump, roster moves or change their map pool a little. i think they need to do both to beat astralis.
2018-12-11 23:51
If they decided they needed more firepower, they are wrong. In my opinion, it's all about tactics and adjustments. Liquid can wreck Mibr and be wrecked by astralis, while Mibr (despite losing) has put up more of a fight against astralis. really funny stuff isn't it?
2018-12-12 11:22

thats a totally fair assumption, but i also understand the argument for more fire power. regardless, a changes was needed and this is the route they went down. only time will tell if it actually works.
2018-12-12 15:53
In the end, I hope it's the best for both teams. I may be brazilian and cheer for brazilian teams, but I really enjoy when there is plenty of great teams creating good games to watch.

I think that Mibr will add fnx and return to their hold lineup with the idea of returning to communicate in Portuguese and getting closer to astralis Tarik will be transfer to c9 or something. Probably this will happen before the major!

The fact that you are picking just random top players no matter what their role is....
2018-12-11 22:20
The fact he just put NiKo in the team "Made in BRAZIL"
2018-12-12 19:45
The reason I said simple is because no team of mixed nationalities like that, lead by an IGL who historically tends towards the tactical side of calling, will able to be top 1 and overthrow Astralis withouAssome SERIOUS firepower

TACO in MiBR - Better MiBR Stewie2k in Liquid - could actually improve Liquid This isn't a bad trade overall for both teams. Zews is kinda important though.
2018-12-11 21:52
#506
 | 
Sweden green_god 
The trade is good for MiBR but not for Liquid. Zews is a great coach and not easily replaced. Stewie2K doesn't play support and won't function ideally on Liquid. To me this seems somewhat similar to Mouz picking up Snax. Stewie won't be as terrible for Liquid as Snax was for Mouz but this won't bring them the number one spot in the world (being a solid second atm)
2018-12-11 22:22
Nitr0 could go over to a more supporting igl, while stewy can play more of the awp role, no?

I think stew is ready to do anything to make sure they win. I think the real loss for liquid is zews but they get a slight upgrade in firepower over taco. Stew has better raw aim over taco and he can always learn the nades.

I think they feel that Stewie will add dynamism/unpredictability compared to Taco, and a slightly better ADR. Plus, language will be less a hang-up in tense situations. I think language limitations also is a factor in why MiBR wishes to return to an all-Brazil lineup.
2018-12-11 21:56

The big loss for liquid prob comes from zews seeing how nitro isnt one of the best igls
2018-12-12 04:55
I agree that the loss of Zews is bad for Liquid. They'll have to try to overcome that loss. Very much underrated. However, he's not an IGL, Nitro is and has been, so IGL activities aren't any better or worse in that respect. The bigger deal now is they need to replace Zews with another brain. Zews was the brain behind both SK and Liquid.

2018-12-11 21:50
Both teams suck right now, so it might be worth the risk
2018-12-11 21:55
LoL/// "both teams suck"... #2 and #4... suck? Everyone is less than Astralis. That doesn't mean everyone sucks except Astralis.
2018-12-11 21:57
None of those players are happy with being #2 or #4, dude. They all wanna be st the top and I think it's clear now that neither team will be able to overcome Astralis, so why not take the risk? Do you think Liquid players are happy with always getting 2nd? Let alone mibr players?
2018-12-11 21:59
Not being happy with #2 and #4 does not equal "sucks". I'm fine with them changing players to see if it works, but I was reacting to you saying they both suck. Pretty much the only team that can say "they suck" about Liquid/MiBR are the players on Astralis.
2018-12-11 22:01
Ya, "suck" is an exaggeration, but to those players, not being able to win tournaments regularly is pretty much = sucking.
2018-12-11 22:04
Making it to the play-offs and even finals very often, on the highest level of the game is not sucking. Maybe u need to stop sucking on mamatit for a while
2018-12-12 08:03
Why did they change then? Liquid made it to 6 finals this year. Lost all of them. If that's fine, why did they change?
2018-12-12 08:12
Smh my head
2018-12-12 18:24
"None of those players are happy with being #2 or #4, dude" you're right, everybody wants to be the best BUT in Liquid's case I'd say it's not worth it at all because they're so far ahead of every team not named Astralis and if they wanted to become #1 -TACO +Stewie2k isn't the move I guess the change will be good for MIBR since they'll be able to speak Portuguese again but I don't see the dynamic being the same
2018-12-11 22:06
This move being the solution is a possibility, keeping the same roster surely isn't. Stewie can do everything Taco can or even better, on the worst scenario they'll just keep being as good.
2018-12-11 22:18
Stewie is 100% the better overall player, but to say he can or would even be willing to play support like TACO does is ludicrous. Who will bait for Twistzz now? This was an essential part of the success.
2018-12-11 22:35
Cant nitr0 go over to more of a support igl, and let stewie play more with the awp?
2018-12-11 22:49
I was just discussing this with friends, perhaps Twistzz can bait nitr0 in place of TACO and Stewie can AWP, thats a good look in my opinion, but, losing zews is devastating no matter how you spin it
2018-12-11 22:50
Yes thats true

2018-12-11 21:57

2018-12-11 22:00

Sweden green_god 
As much as I hope that Astralis will continue their dominance, it does seem unlikely. Their steam will run out or the other teams will figure out how to beat them. Liquid are at their best ever atm. I'm sure they'd win more in 2019 than they have in 2018 if they didn't make the trade. For MiBR the trade makes sense. Zews is a great coach and TACO plays really well with the trio. As a 5th player they should get felps back too.

Agreed even when fnatic and NIP were invincible and SK were pretty dominant, noone can hold onto no.1 forever simply because other teams will fully watch astralis games and theres only a certain amount of evolving possible

It was a trade, this wasn't a kick. And read Taco's tweet, he is clearly upset about it

Unless there's a new tweet or something. The first one looked sad lol
2018-12-12 09:37

yes I agree. He isn't a bad igl, but they need an awp. They shouldn't -support to +awp tho. Taco has been doing well.
2018-12-12 02:30
TACO wanted to leave and play with cold again. He wasn't given the boot, he voluntarily left (so twitter says lmao) NAF is a decent awper and stewie can make up for the lost rifleing power when NAF awps, and stew could also secondary awp

and nitr0 is?
2018-12-12 01:56
I know that's likely, but that's not my issue. Taco is support, and he is a good support. The team is super strong but does need an awp. Nitr0 is a good IGL but not that great an awp, while FalleN is a good IGL AND a good awp. That'd be the best upgrade, so they don't lose their stable support that plays all the bitch roles

As much as people shittalk Taco, you can't deny he's a winner. He has won 2 majors and 9 big tournaments throughout his career, so getting 2nd all the time is not enough for someone with that curriculum. He probably sees on a new full br line up with Zews the chance to go back to winning tournaments. Something that Liquid apparently cant do :/

Hmmm a good move for me. SK was a case of too many cooks. Cold and Stewie are both stars. One was always going to suffer and be playing a role they don't excel at. Taco on the other hand. Is a great support player. He has refound that form that he has lost when he left SK. SK will be stronger for this. Liquid, I'm not so sure. They needed the extra firepower sure. But not at the expense of such a good support player, I will be interested to see how it works out for Liquid.

Clearly misguided views then. In what ways is he overrated and where are links to these tantrums?
2018-12-12 00:39
Not in the slightest. That's like someone claiming that s1mple was not toxic, there is tons of proof if you just search for it. Not gonna bother digging up any past links. Basically losing his composure over and over again when things don't go his way. Liquid doesn't need that shit.

Lol doesnt mention a single thing about him being overrated. Then says there is "tons of proof if you search for it" about his toxicity but would have to "dig up past links" to find that proof. Seems like you have no actual points as to why he is what you say he is and are just a hater.
2018-12-12 01:10
I don't need to mention a single thing about him being overrated, you should realize this by yourself if you actually follow their games. He has been hyped up as a fucking prodigy ever since he made his break into the scene, yet he was nothing more than mediocre for his entire run in mibr. Literally all you need to do is watch their past matches on stream, read his twitter and analyze his overall demeanour and you'll reach the same conclusions as I did. Also do you really expect me to go through fucking vods to find specific timestamps in order to support my claim? I don't give a fuck about you or this conversation. I am however quite fond of Liquid, and I'd hate for this move to actually happen.

"HMMM WERE #2 AND #4 in the WORLD AND WORKED REALLY HARD TO GET IT I HAVE AN IDEA LETS MAKE A CHANGES" Great fucking job... :( I'm still gonna look to it with some optimism cause this is probably one of the most stacked fucking rosters in terms of individual skill but Liquid was a team built on teamplay. I hope this is like the situation where TACO replaced Steel because it didn't change the team a whole lot but made them slightly better since they put them in the same roles. Stewie is a very good solo bombsite anchor, better than TACO I would say so maybe their Dust2 improves from this. Edit: Ok I have calmed down, let's go STEWIE

Did you not read? Tarik is being transfer listed meaning he's not on the team.
2018-12-11 22:07
This is a really bad move from Liquid. They keep getting second place, they should be happy, it was a matter of time before they could break Astralis, you could actually see that on the first map of the last BO5 they played. In no way they played bad, the final was awesome to watch. On the other hand, I didn't feel like that +Stewie +tarik would do well so it was somewhat expected they would be kicked or leave.
2018-12-11 22:04
#406
 | 
United States ferric 
+1 :( Still though, Stewie was not the worst move. TACO was put to anchor a site a lot, and Stewie is still a great bombsite anchor but he also is arguably a better individual player. If he's willing to be put in TACO's position, after some time, this might really be the team to beat Astralis.
2018-12-11 22:08
This move won't work no matter how you look at it. Stewie is by no means a bad player, but tell me who is willing to sacrifice his role to be put in TACO's position ? He literally plays all the crucial positions. Look at bondik's interview, that says a lot. They have 4 frag machines in the name of EliGE, NAF, Twistzzz, Stewie now... Maybe they will sacrifice nitr0 again, but if they are willing to do stupid moves like that, it's just a matter of time before they kick nitr0 which isn't fair.

I mean the reason why the move could work os that TACO plays the exact same positions Stewie plays on CT side, and Liquid's CT side hold on Dust2 was the reason they choked ESL One New York. Also there is no longer a language barrier. Of course TACO can speak English, but its still not a super comfortable language for him as seen evidently in interviews. Stewie didn't feel hapoy to play with Brazilians on his team that werent as comfortable with English, and thr Brazilians wanted to play with peoplr that coukd speak Portuguese. The reason why I dont see this working out as bad as the snax move is because Snax could barely speak English, and Snax was a totally different player on CT side thsn Snax, while Stewie plays the exsct same bombsites as TACO while being more reliable as an anchor. Another reasin why this could work out because Stewie is better thsn anyone else on the Liquid roster with the awo, so they could be moving nitr0 who was known to be really good with rifles to a support position where he's always playing with rifles. They probably want stewie to awp because EliGE is already a great entry fragger and if anyone on the team is really willing to awp full time its stewie. I still think they should have given more time to the original roster, but when the players themselves want to leave the team.. what can you do?

2018-12-11 22:08
MiBR going back to the roots, I like it, but they've been better lately, so I'm unsure as to whether this move is justified. Meanwhile Liquid are kind of taking the C9 approach, not sure I enjoy them breaking apart some of the teams structure for additional firepower, but it could go really well, that is, if this move comes through.
