coldzera: "We're trying very hard, but the team just isn't fitting very well"

We caught up with MIBR's Marcelo "coldzera" David after the Brazilians beat their Luminosity countrymen, 2-0, to stay alive in the lower bracket at the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals.

MIBR had a rough start at the ESL Pro League Season 9 FInals in Montpellier, losing to Finn "karrigan" Andersen's men on Inferno, 8-16. On the second day of play, in the first round of the lower bracket, MIBR beat fellow Brazilians Luminosity in a two map series that was played out on Mirage and Dust2.

coldzera hopes MIBR will be able to get out of the group stage in France

In the interview, coldzera talks about the state of MIBR currently, what they're suffering from and what they need to turn the ship around, and touches upon some of the keys in the their first two matches in Montpellier, against mousesports and Luminosity, and what would be a good result for the team at the event in France.

It's the second day here in Montpellier, you started out with a loss to mousesports on Inferno, were you expecting it to go the way it did?

We practiced a lot of Inferno for this tournament because we know it's one of our weakest maps. During practice we tried to create new things and we were really comfortable, but against mousesports it was tough. We have a good T-side, and we knew all of the aggressive plays they have. During the match we tried to counter them a lot, but during some of the rounds that we should have countered them because we knew what they were going to do, we didn't counter them. Someone would push somewhere and we would forget to counter them, like when we were up 6-2, I told my team that mouz had a forcebuy, like $4,100 or $4,200, so they wouldn't have much utility and would do the same aggression they always do. They did it, but we didn't have an answer for it and after we lost that round it started to get in our minds a little bit. They're a new team, and they're playing really well, but I think we need to find ourselves. We're not playing our game, we're not playing our best, we lose a lot of group stage matches. We're trying very hard, but the team just isn't fitting very well.

Talking about group stages, ECS was a rough exit. You started the season traveling a lot, but you had some time at home before that and it seemed like you could travel there refreshed. What's going on in the team right now?

Right now the problem inside the team is not about strategy, or about aim, the problem is that when we come to play, and we'll do some aggressive setup, the players on the other side of the map don't understand that they need to play safe, they'll try to fight more and when they die we start to create a lot of gaps in the map, so we start to lose map control. For example, against Luminosity today we created a setup to fight for Mid, but felps was trying to fight on Long and when he died we lost that part of the map. They knew we had a huge gap and it was hard to regroup again and try to fix that mistake. We have a lot of those situations and that's the problem for us right now, it's not that we play poorly because we don't play anymore or that we're not hungry to win, we're trying to do everything and fix our mistakes, the problem is that we don't fit together because people don't understand when we need to fight together or when we need to play safe.

What do you think you can do now to try and fix that, especially now going into the final bit of the season ahead of the Major?

People need to understand the game better because nowadays it's not about just playing. Everyone knows how to play, how to shoot, the teams that are playing well now are the teams that play smart, teams in which the players always try to make the correct play and don't gamble anymore or fight a lot. ENCE are a team that fight more, and then play normally, but if you look at FaZe or Na`Vi, they play around someone and they know what they're doing, so when they pick a fight, the players on the other side of the map are very defensive. We're trying to add this to our team and open the players' minds to understand that part of the game better.

You're going through the lower bracket now, you just beat Luminosity and had to make a bit of a comeback on Dust2. Can you run me through the key moments? Did you expect to have to struggle like that?

It's always hard to play against Luminosity, it's difficult for us to play against teams that YOLO a lot, every time we play them it's a tough match. We played well on Mirage, and we know what they're going to do there, but we're not very good on Dust2 right now, we're trying to fix it. Luminosity play everywhere, they move a lot, they never play a normal game and if you lose fights against them they abuse the gaps a lot, and on Dust2 when you pick a fight you leave a lot of gaps.

Mirage was kind of easy, but on Dust2 they play fast and abuse the gaps, and when we started to lose a lot of fights that made a difference because they knew how to use those gaps really well and when they abused them we started to suffer.

Moving on to the lower bracket semi-finals, what do you expect to get out of this tournament moving forward, or what would you consider an OK result?

After losing to mousesports yesterday, I don't think we're ready to go to a semi-final, a good result for us will be to get out of the group stage and start to go step by step again, trying to fix our mistakes every match and to try and understand how to play as a team better. So getting out of the group stage in this tournament would be good for us.

Loool bullshit. With Tarik and Stew they were at least a top 5 team. Now they ain't even in the top 10. A lot of tournaments where they were 2nd after Astralis. They don't even make any semifinals this day lol. Both are now in a better team anyway.
2019-06-19 18:49
LUL I remember when ppl were shitting on stewie and tarik and when people said -them to get better. Oh well, look what happened. Stewie has been a key component in Cloud9, MIBR and Liquid now. Looks like it wasnt the NA guys after all whose fault it was that MIBR wasnt the best...
2019-06-19 20:19
liquid was top1 pretty much with taco alrdy, they are at same level still.
2019-06-23 12:12
they were second most of the tournaments and taco barely did some shit...with stew they are a way better team, Brazilian team has good communication it seems loooll

I am afraid the problem is not only felps, but the core. I start from Fallen. He proved that he cannot adapt to the new meta (not new anymore). Watch Valde's North for example, he is doing a very good job for a beginner igl. He understands the meta very well and adjusts the team accordingly. Look at Fallen, veteran, still doing slightly different variations of the same tactics. They keep saying they work on changing things but I actually don't see anything different. That's Fallen's mistake and he should be the one counted on first.

We have one of the best women right system of the world, I am guessing you mean the woman behind the window? They do it because it's there own choice and they get paid for more than 2 hardworking people for sure. ofc there is some crime in that business but not even close to the same amount as in Brazil with all respect. & also I am pretty sure those s*x workers here have to pay taxes as well for it.

Felps needs to be replaced with more aggressive player, as per what is observed he doesn't fit in this team, yes previously they had won many events, but that stage was different current stage is different. Seeing how they are performing they are nowhere a title contenders, atleast they should try to get out of groups.

2019-06-19 19:48
nope taco and felps doesnt have discipline in their positioning on ct side always the first to die cause unaware of what other teammates are doing, and gaps are opened on the map it burden cold fer and fallen, taco and felps tend to fight alone that makes other players looks like baiting most of the time trying to get info instead of playing together on site or asking for any support.

Coldzera doesnt like Felps style and it make such difference in his game. Was easy to see the motivation down x mouse, he did 2 incredible clutches and after 6x2 disappeared in the game... Is also difficult to Fer that cant do his plays, for Taco that always need to be in front and for Fallen that need to re-think tatics during the round.... -Felps +Elige

Honestly during the first stint with felps i got THE EXACT same feeling from this team that i'm getting now. I got the feeling that People were irritated at eachother in the team and especially felps and coldzera. I Always felt like felps came in and tried to prove himself, and started sort of an inside rivalry with him and coldzera, like "i know i can be better than you and you know it". And coldzera thought that felps should respect him as the better player because he thinks he is, but also feel kind of threatened by the young fire in felps. Felps has gotten 2 chances now, first time he was cut because he did stupid plays and didn't "adapt" (this means he didn't listen to the more experienced and better players) and this second time it seems to be the exact same thing, Which leads me to seriously doubt if felps is especially smart? I mean who the fuck gets the chance of his lifetime, to come and play for a legendary team with legendary players but then thinks he can do his own thing? Well you know what they say, can't have 2 divas in the same CSGO team.

Headline should be: "WE'RE TRYING VERY HARD, BUT -FELPS- JUST ISN'T FITTING VERY WELL" and It seems to me, based on what Cold said, that It's not about the fact the Felps is an agressive player, the problem is that he's doing it SO MUCH. He needs to figure out the right moment to be agressive, for the good of the team, and when stay safe and wait things happen on the other side of the map.

2019-06-19 16:34
this lineup is broken. felps is way too agressive for the positions he needs to cover and he is bad playing passively, also mibr already had one player doing the aggro with fer. otherwise, taco is dogshit. this guy woudln't play in my lobby on global mm lulz the core is fine, just need to find other two players who can fit a system with an AWP/IGL, an extreme skillfull player and the aggro player. imo they should've gone for kscerato. he's a solid anchor and waaaaaay more skilled than taco. would be a fine swap. for felps, i dont know who would fit well.

2019-06-19 16:38
Lol fnx in 2k19.
2019-06-19 16:56
Sure Cold blame it on the team.
2019-06-19 16:38
oh really?
2019-06-19 16:40
I like coldzera for not sugarcoating the team's current situation but rather speaking the truth (unlike FalleN) I believe felps might be the problem, apart from stats, he has somewhat of a poor judgement in my opinion, same can be said about his reaction to a situation. To me, a good team is a team whose teammates contribute in someway in a match. I see TACO doing it, he contributes, fer contributes with his sneak, coldzera with his dominance and FalleN with his AWP. On the other hand, for felps, I don't seem to point out much efforts. Yes he did kill 2 guys with CZ-75 to win the round but for the rest, it was just aggresive pointless pushes, unnecessary risks and slow reactions. However, I don't get to criticize (bec literally shit CSGO skills) but I'd like to see results from felps mainly, everyone else seems fine and coldzera has explained his situation correctly. The roster is as well as any other top 5 teams and felps kind of poisons it to make them feel like a top 15-ish team Best of luck for the Brazilians though, win or lose they have my support Oh yeah and Kscerato for felps (:
2019-06-19 16:41
Yes yes it's always TACO and the 5th guy's fault :) How about they fucking kick fer for once ? he's trash it's about time he gets the criticism he deserves.
2019-06-19 16:46
No TACO isn't the problem, I find his role as support player to be fine, but speaking of fer, I think he is very experienced and marginally better than felps. Fer's plays are admirable, same can be said about his game sense too. Watching all matches I've seen Fer as an intellectual, it's as if he knows and sees things that we don't. Calling Fer trash would be disrespectful, it's either a player plays good or bad. There's a video posted by MiBR on YouTube. It's a 1v1 between felps and Fer, you watch it, felps has an embarrassing result. Fer's a legend and that'll be the criticism which I'll give him. He's a very deserving player and has had several above average plays in recent times. Even in today's match, Fer's flanking on Dust2 had alot of impact if not the most. I think Fer is quite underrated by the way. (:

Felps stay SAFE dude. Lawl. Play aggressive is a 50/50 situation ,or it helps the team right in the beginning or it fucks up an previous strategy and which contribute a round loss. If its something that is already agreed at the beginning of the round then it's fine ,everyone has to assume the responsibility,if not,like in felps case,is something they have to talk about. Well Furia-ART ,plays more aggressive than felps imo ,if both played safe could contribute much more to the teams. Shortly play aggressive is not a solution in most part of the cases. Again , that's my point of view.
2019-06-19 16:55
ART is agressive, but he actually has a brain. Even that playing aggressive is 50-50, he always use this gamble to create space for his team to do a fast entry. You can notice that, if he kills someone on overpass long, its an rush to A. If in the same case he loses on long and cant be traded, the 2nd man throw some utilities and all rush to b, since the cts already called rotation. Felps dying is just useless in the way mibr play. Cold is fucking right.
2019-06-19 17:37
Sometimes he has a brain. Against Vitality he died 3 or 4 consecutive times picking mid agains Zywoo.
2019-06-20 00:06
Yeah, far enough, that game was horrible to watch. It looked like a gold nova MM. It was pretty incredible how zywoo were always on mid/bathrooms and they still thought it was a good idea go there every fucking time.

Swap felps with kNg and everything will be better. kNg is wasting his career on a lower team, we saw how good he is vs t1 competition, he's an elite player, he has a way more complete playstyle than felps and boltz, he's better aimwise and also smarter, he's better with pistols and he's an insane sniper. It's time to finally make it happen. Dead said they already tried to buy him last year, this time they need to.
2019-06-19 17:20
NOAH will not let this move happen.
2019-06-19 17:32
