dead: "flamie was at the airport when s1mple said he did not want to come; we wanted NiKo and shox at first" *

MIBR manager Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia has shed light on the roster changes that the team almost underwent at the beginning of 2018.

After a disappointing start to the year that culminated with a group stage exit at the WESG Finals, the Brazilian team, who at the time were still playing under the SK banner, set their sights on Na`Vi duo Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev as they looked to build an international star-studded roster.

The deal eventually fell through, with s1mple - who would go on to be named the best player of 2018 after performing at a level never witnessed before - stating that "it is not time to leave the team".

dead says that the team approached players like NiKo, rain and KRIMZ

In an interview with Mais Esports, dead has now revealed just how close the Na`Vi duo came to joining the team, even though they were not even the first names on the list of targets as the Brazilians had first plotted moves for Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and Richard "shox" Papillon.

"We had not thought about s1mple at first," he said. "We had thought about Niko and shox, but shox could not come because of his wife. He was still flattered by our offer.

"Then, it was Niko and rain, but rain did not want to come, and, without him, Niko would not come. Then, we thought about s1mple and KRIMZ because KRIMZ's contract with fnatic was about to expire, but it did not work out.

"That was when s1mple said: 'What about flamie?'. We had some talks, we met with everyone. s1mple said: 'I'll go, I'll go'.

"For you to understand how close things got, flamie was at the airport when s1mple said that he was no longer coming. I understand Na`Vi's point of view, the guy was their entire team and they did everything they could to hold on to him.

"Then, we wanted Stewie2K and autimatic, but autimatic did not want to come."

After just a few months with four Brazilian players and one North American in Jake "Stewie2K" Yip, the team, who by then had already signed for Immortals to play under the MIBR brand, opted to make another change, this time replacing under-fire Ricardo "boltz" Prass with Tarik "tarik" Celik.

"tarik is a very cool guy, he was not what we wanted at the start of the year, but we saw that the situation was so bad, even for boltz, that bringing in tarik was better than what we had," dead explained.

"We did not think about anyone else. We were so traumatized by what had happened with s1mple and by all the negative responses that we had got that we thought: 'This guy wants to come, and his buyout is okay'.

"tarik had just won a Major and his buyout was lower than that of some Brazilian players."

The international experiment would not last. By mid-January, MIBR had already returned to their roots, bringing back Epitacio "TACO" de Melo and João "felps" Vasconcellos to recreate the all-Brazilian lineup that had won five international titles in 2017.

And while TACO's transfer was handled in quick fashion, the same cannot be said for felps' signing. The 22-year-old, who at the time was tied to INTZ, was one of a trio of players MIBR had their eyes on to fill tarik's shoes.

"felps was the second player on our list," the MIBR manager revealed. "First, we thought about kNg, but, because of certain things it did not work out. The third option was kscerato.

"We negotiated at the same time with INTZ and FURIA. INTZ were very clear: 'This is felps' buyout, that is how much we want for him'. Our thought process was like this: 'felps has already played at a high level. He knows what that is like and he will not be affected by pressure.'

"If we were to bring in kscerato, we would bootcamp with him then play a Major, something he had never done before. What he played in Katowice was not a Major per se, the difference between what FURIA did, which was great, and what GamesAcademy and Tempo Storm had done was that they had stickers. They did not play at a Major, they only played at the qualifier. That is the reality.

"The pressure of playing at a Major is ridiculous, and we know that we always go far at Majors. And we thought: 'What if we bring the kid and he shits the bed?' And then, after the Major, we would play at BLAST Pro Series São Paulo, with eight thousand fans in our face.

"We thought that kscerato represented a much greater risk than felps but we could eventually have more to gain from adding him. So we told FURIA: 'We know the kid is good, we would like to have him. We know that he has a buyout, but, because he does not have much experience and is not a proven player, we would like to have him on a year-long loan.

"We could not reach an agreement on the price and things were much easier with INTZ. If INTZ and FURIA had said yes at the same time, I do not know what we would have done.

"For us, felps was a ready-made player. kscerato is someone who can grow a lot, we do not know his ceiling. And if it were today, in my opinion, we would no longer go for kscerato, but for yuurih."

The Brazilian manager also commented on his team's fallout with SK Gaming. Ahead of ESL One Belo Horizonte, questions were raised about a potential conflict of interest as the German organisation was believed to have a deal in place with the Não Tem Como roster. This would represent a breach of the tournament's rules stating that an organisation can only have one license per tournament as Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's team was still playing under SK and was also in attendance at the event.

At the time, ESL did not identify an ownership conflict between the teams, but dead believes that the tournament organiser failed to do the basic due diligence when looking into the matter.

"SK got the Brazilians guys, they had contracts and all," he said. "It is silly and naive to think that they were not tied to SK. We know they were, even though SK will deny this to the death.

"They were practicing in Cologne, from SK's office. ESL asked SK: 'Do you own them?', and they said no. Then it was like, 'SK said they do not own the team, so they do not own them'."

UPDATE: flamie contacted HLTV.org to deny that he was at the airport when the deal fell through. According to the Russian player, he had a plane ticket to join up with the rest of the SK squad and "that was it".

This interview show more or less what is behind all the issues in MIBR. Instead of looking at what they have, and what they need, they go for names and brands. This is like the oposite of Vitality and even though MIBR got better players, better coach, more money and a more established ORG they are more or less equally good as Vitality. For another example: Astralis lost their entry fragger Kjaerby in a weird way, so what did they do? They made a list of qualities they were looking for and out of that list they narrowed it down to a few players and went for the benched Magisk. It was a surprise to most people but it fit the bill. Magisk went on to become one of the most successful players in CS:GO, Astralis went from being a contender to undisputed #1 in the world, and they started an era. Arguably the best era ever, but if not; at least it is the Strongest era. I see this in a lot of sports, but I don't understand why people don't learn from their own or other peoples mistakes.

+1 Correct, But I think they understand that now and honestly they look good now if we compare to the Stew and tarik roster in 2018 (Not that Stew and tarik are bad, they are effin amazing), they are doing really good as a truly Brazilian core. People forget, MiBR 16-2 Astralis

16-2 in a BO1 during a day where Astralis played their worst CS in about 3 years. MIBR is better now, because they went back to their roots, but is the players really what they need? Do they complement eachother in the new modern meta as well as they did two years ago? I don't think so. But yeah, this is the best they've looked on about 18 months.

TACO | 
Brazil TonimSan 
TACO was the missing piece, he is exactly what MIBR needed. Felps is a bit more complicated, tho. Despite his obvious talent, he clearly doesn't fit the system. Even dead said he wasn't the first option. This lineup haas raw potential to be the best team in the world, but everyone would need to go nuts at the same time, which is HARD. I still think the best lineup this core had was with boltz. He plays the perfect role for the other 4, a passive player who can hold the ground, while Fallen and fer apply their usual pressure in some other point in the map. FNX worked well too, but boltz is mechanically better.
2019-05-23 15:03
I only read the first sentence and can say that I do not agree at all. The only reason MIBR failed with Stewie and Tarik was communication. MIBR wanted to bring all these guys in and cannot speak English well enough to communicate. Anyone would have failed when the team cannot communicate. Faze is the example. They can communicate in English and it works fine. And I think we can all agree that in pressure situations, the most important thing needed is crisp, clean communication. That's why this failed And kscerato would have been the better pick than Felps. Washed up

The reason any of the rosters failed ever since 2017 is because instead of going for what they need they go for what they want. The meta changed but the org doesn't realize it.
2019-05-23 17:53
#297
 |

The reason isn't that their English isn't good enough, it is comms no matter language. We've heard Tarik, Stew, Brax complain, so then we can ASSUME it is English. But we also hear Taco, Boltz and Felps complain about lack of comms which means it isn't the language barrier that keeps them from communicating, but because of something else. Perhaps FalleN and Coldzera will become the BR version of VP?

I watch a lot if CS. Probably more than I should. And I don't just watch my favorite team, i watch almost everything I can. MIBR have been fluctuating in the ranks for a bit more than a year, but got a mean/average rank of 9. Vitality are currently 11th but are a new team and still improving. They still don't get invites to big events even though being a stable top 10 contender. So the only thing that differ those two in ranking points is that MIBR is one of the first teams to ger invites while Vitality is one of the last. MIBR can play well on maps, matches even events but not continually or consistantly for months. Each improvement they have mad with this current roster has displayed an issue that even out most of the improvement.

Lets just show the stats last 3 months, for the two afformentioned teams, against top 10 teams (I didn't count overtime as draw, but the final score of the overtime is accounted): Vitality: 8 wins 0 draws 9 losses MIBR: 10 wins 1 draw 20 losses So MIBR has gained more ranking points because they have played more top tier matches and since we don't deduct points for losses it's all honkey dory? Or do you want me to go into detail about each map? 2-16 twice for MIBR against top 10 teams, biggest loss for Vitality wasn't even close to that embarassing.
2019-05-24 16:50

Argentina messi__10 
That's exactly why you can't compare them. MIBR lately was playing a LAN tier1 tournament every 15 days(travelling from one country to another) meanwhile Vitality was playing MDL.They had a lot of time to practice compare to MIBR(they finished the series of LAN tournaments recently with IEM Sidney) And also the difference is that MIBR biggest loss was against the top2 and 20 days after they won 16-2 against the best team of the world when Vitality was losing 16-3 against tier4 teams like Spirit. So which loss was more embarrassing? I don't know if you're a MIBR hater or a Vitality delusional fan, either way you're talking nonsense..

I would say that the issue with current roster is a mentality issue. They might be friends and played together for years, but to me they don't seem like a unit. It seems to me they have developed in different directions and with each small meta change their team play will most likely degress more and more due to their approach to the new meta. This is a nice attempt to revive something that died with the meta changes back in 2017. Coldzera and FalleN might be the two best players in the team but they don't play the game like Taco or Felps does, and therefore they can't function as one cohecent unit!

It would be true if the team wasn't improving. The team is getting better and better. Still far from what they used to be, but they are, right now, a consistent top 10, and contender for the top 5.
2019-05-23 18:43
#341
 | 
Sweden Lagge15 
yeah, I know, their improvements contradict most of my analyzis for their team, but you see it over and over again that Felps and Taco do some plays and then Coldzera have something else in mind and they lose rounds because of lack of coherent plays. This can be eliminated by practice and talking through plays and strats, but since we still see it make it obvious that the approach to the current meta differs from player to player. You see the same in other teams as well: FaZe, Fnatic, Na'Vi... so it isn't just MIBR. They can be a stable top 5 team, but with a more thought through roster they could go for #1 spot much quicker than with current roster. I don't mean they should kick "bad" players for better, but they should have a plot for what the team is about. Vitality doesn't have the best players in France except for ZywOo and still they are undoubtedly the best team in France right now and a top 10 contender.

Sweden Lagge15 
Isn't VSM under investigation for cheating? Or am I confusing him with someone else? I think that if you have the core of Fer, Coldzera and FalleN you would go for a player like Taco, but not for Taco himself. The issue there isn't that he is a bad player (could be one of the best support players in the world) but for the approach to the game. Some like fast paced aggressive plays, some like aim duels, some like slow, some like smart... when you mix these into a team it is either brilliant or will fall flat. The issue now is that TACO and Coldzera doesn't approach the game the same way, which means that TACO will support Coldzera for one typ ove moves/pushes while Coldzera wanna do something else. The other person they should have gone for is Yuurih or Kscerato, but Kscerato was too expensive. So then it would be Yuurih, Boltz or some relatively unknown. To me, they should disband the two best players and keep the other 3 as a core. Bring in AbleJ and Boltz. Less firepower, less skill, but in my opinion a better team. The problem is IGL

He's not under investigation, he confirmed it in a Live in Portuguese, he was 13 years old, playing for fun that time and dont realize to be an E-sport professional. I don't agree 100% about Taco, he's amazing player and is finding his space again not just baiting for cold but also doing a good support/entry. He is also helping MIBR to define a new play style beeing one of the most important changes for the team at this time. I my opinion, in the beginning of the year, Talco would help the team that much that was doing poor plays going to much in the front without properly support, do you understand what i mean? I cant have same position about Felps, he is not in the same lvl of the other 4. Felps still needing to prove for himself that is doing a good frag, this make him do a very ridiculous stuffs during games. Kscerato is a great player, he is amaizing but would not fit well in the same team of coldzera. Yuurih/VSM/Vini is a mix of trader/entry with enough skill, inteligence and talent to make the difference in some rounds for MIBR.

Then perhaps it wasn't him I was thinking about because this was something recent. If you follow TACO on social media you know he used to do stuff for the team that he just quit doing because he didn't feel like people utilized it enough. For instance: He used to calculate the enemy economy and say it out loud during each freeze time but have stopped doing it now. If I had a support player with that mind I would utilize the most of it, but FalleN and Coldzera doesn't seem to adjust to his intelligence. TACO could be the most important player in most teams, as long as the IGL and Coach know how to utilize him. Kscerato and Coldzera would most likely work well together as long as one of them can wrap their ego down to a "normal" level. But both of them got a bit S1mple or NiKo like ego. If one of them could go Electronic it would work.

I prefere to understand it as a playstyle, not Ego. Kscerato is a very simple guy, but his nature style is be much more "safe/passive" comparing to the others players i suggested for MIBR in the previous comment. Regarding to Taco, I agree with you that he can make a more inteligent function, but i didnt put all in acount of zeus or fallen. Its always happen when you join (or re-join) a team, you try to help with all you have and sometimes the better option is be a little more egoistic. Take a look in the last games to see how Taco improved on it, he's beeing a key player for MIBR last games... AbleJ could be replaced by VSM or Turtle to improve Furia core and valve should reconsider the VSM Ban, this was so ridiculous...

I might have been bad at explaining my point with TACO. I might sound hard on him but it is the combination of FalleN+Coldzera and TACO I dislike. I would chose Taco over the other two every day of the week. But those three together have grown apart too much because of the game and if it wasn't for ZEWS they would most likely argue so much they'd stop being friends outside of the server. And why should TACO adjust to an outdated game style instead of FalleN pick the other side and make Coldzera adapt to the more modern Game style? That would be the best thing for MIBR. But now everything is adjusted to fit Coldzera the obsolete.

AbleJ is doing fine, FURIA doesnt need any changes rn, putting VSM in the team isn't nescessary, FURIA has enough star players (Yurih, KSC and sometimes VINI), Ablej does the supportive roles, and he's doing a great job, and plays very well on LAN, and btw FURIA woudn't play any major with VSM on the lineup.

"Na’Vi then claimed it could block the transfer of s1mple, even if the full buyout amount was offered. Na’Vi also argued, according to sources, it didn’t have to transfer s1mple immediately because the buyout clause did not state a specific time frame. Na’Vi then informed Immortals that if Immortals wanted to purchase s1mple now, Immortals could “have him in July.”"

2019-05-23 14:33
why?

because mibr is the only org that doesn’t give free umbrellas to their players

If the thing with felps dont work out, yuurih would be a great option for the team. Obviously he's not the most experienced but he'll still bring a lot to the table.

"tarik had just won a Major and his buyout was lower than that of some Brazilian players." AHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAAHAHAAHAHAAHAAHAHAAHAAHA Favela tier 2 more expensive then Tarik AHAhAAHAHAHAAHHAAHA
2019-05-23 14:45
Tarik played 12 events in MIBR where his rating was positive in 8 events.
2019-05-23 15:20
What does this have to do with what was posted? The fact that the reigning major champion cost less than kscerato is hilarious
2019-05-23 15:26
just shows how ridiculous the buyouts for brazilian players are. thats why mibr has kept the same core for so long, all the talent in brazil is locked up in contracts.
2019-05-23 17:05
Ok so Navi ruined s1mple career by not letting him go
2019-05-23 14:46

It's not like Na'Vi is doing any better right now.
2019-05-23 15:14
I am not going to look at rankings, but I am pretty sure Na'Vi is above MIBR...when they had the Americans and now with full Brazilian lineup

They are inconsistent but surely better than mibr

S1mple use the offer maybe to get more money. This is absolutely okay. Navi wants S1mple so they have to offer more. Do you believe they hold him back? LUL as GOAT you will always get an offer when you say you will leave a Clan. I guess 90% of the other tier 1 teams would make him an offer.

felps is an experienced player, but his playstyle/role can get too similar to fer's. They'll never find consistency by using him differently, trying to make him a passive player. They were so worried about kscerato shitting the bed, yet BLAST Sao Paulo was still the worst LAN tournament of their careers(with felps)

Sometimes you are not just expecting results, you want to learn more with other players from top...

And ? If you really believe their mechanical skills are better than NiKo, Coldzera, shox ( top 5-6 player of all times and one of the most mechanically skilled ) etc. you must have started watching in the second semester of 2018 ... The aforementionned 5 players of the "hypotetical" lineup have sick mechanical skills & are a lot better in terms of firepower, just because they had a "bad" year because their respective teams dynamics weren't good don't cancel that fact.
