MIBR invited to BLAST Pro Series Sao Paulo

December 15th, 2018 21:55

MIBR are the first team confirmed to attend BLAST Pro Series Sao Paulo.

Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's side are the first team invited the $250,000 tournament, with five more set to be revealed in the few months to follow.

The news comes amongst rumors of MIBR's plans to change the lineup, as the team are reportedly looking to revert back to a fully Brazilian roster for the next year, with Jake "Stewie2K" Yip about to trade places with Liquid's Epitacio "TACO" de Melo.

BLAST's first stop of 2019 in Sao Paulo will feature the home team

The Brazilian tournament, which is set to take place on March 22-23, will be BLAST's first out of eight stops in 2019. Two more have already been revealed; one in Miami (April 12-13) and the other in Madrid, Spain (May 10-11).

The Sao Paulo stop will be MIBR's core's fifth consecutive attendance at BLAST events, as they have received invites for each one to this date.

They should use sound-proof cabins, but I can explain to you why they doesn't. ESL and many tournament orgs think that sound-proof cabins makes the crowd feel more far from the players, and that's not the purpose of playing in a stage. And all that they can hear through that ear protector are just screams.

2018-12-16 12:24
Brazil is divided into 5 regions, and Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo belong to the Southeast region of Brazil. They are different states, but they are in the same region. btw, to go from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo by car, it's 5 hours trip or 30 minutes by plane.
2018-12-16 14:54
and Barra da Tijuca is a very beautiful place of RJ (it is in the Western Zone of the State), where several famous people live and even the new president of the country.

Hmm, now I see your point. And I actually agree, liquid, navi, mibr, faze and mous are basically at the same level, with astralis standing out at the very top. So since top #2 to #6 are very close we can't really say much about them

Neither is any other team at the moment ironically enough due to roster changes or playing like complete shit (Na'Vi) so imo the HLTV rankings couldn't be more oblivious than they currently are.
2018-12-18 20:37
I’m saying Navi/ liquid and mibr Are fighting for that 2nd-4th slot While sadly faze and mouz are a little bit behind

Both Portuguese and Brazilian crowds are amazing , we have the same spirit and blood .
2018-12-15 22:35
yes but portugal crowd seemed to be a lot more friendly than the sao paulo one, not that I mind the crowd backing only their home favorites but the portugal crowd seemed to appreciate good cs as well as supporting their favorite team.

ppl that says kng are braindead.... There is no possibility to take another main awper, unless fallen step down from lineup. Just HLTV users believe in this non sense. By judging Fallen's last interview, it seems that kscerato is on wish list. But there are others like trk, chelo, pancc, vSm, etc. I don't believe in any other former teamate besides TACO coming back.
2018-12-16 00:29
Yeah the only names I've seen mentioned are kng and kscerato but like you said, idk why they would pick up kng when fallens the awper. I still wouldnt rule out kng tho, the timing of his apology and the announcement that stew is leaving were too close to at least make ppl think. guess we gotta wait and see
