zews to replace coldzera at BLAST Pro Series LA, IEM Chicago

MIBR coach Wilton "⁠zews⁠" Prado will be the team's fifth player at BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles and IEM Chicago, replacing Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David, HLTV.org has learned.

The news follows an HLTV.org report revealing that coldzera had asked to be moved to the bench as he felt he needed a change and a new challenge in his career after almost four years with the team.

coldzera was initially supposed to attend two more events with MIBR, this weekend's BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles and next week's IEM Chicago, but following a team meeting held on Tuesday, it was decided that zews will be playing for the team in the near future.

zews will play for MIBR in LA and Chicago

MIBR's lineup situation for the StarLadder Major remains unclear at this point. With the roster lock having come into effect on June 25, the team can only submit a replacement for coldzera in the event of an emergency, such as a health problem or visa issues. Contacted by Mais Esports, a StarLadder official guaranteed that a player leaving a team does not constitute an emergency.

On Instagram, coldzera refuted claims that he rejected to play the Major with the team, adding that it was his teammates who did not want him to play at the showpiece event.

MIBR will face Renegades, FaZe, NRG, Liquid and Cloud9 in the round-robin stage of BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles, kicking off on Saturday at 20:00 . This will be the team's second event with Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles, who was signed from Luminosity in a loan deal that will run until the end of the Major.

The Brazilian team will attend their next two events with:

Brazil Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo
Brazil Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga
Brazil Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo
Brazil Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles (loan)
Brazil Wilton "⁠zews⁠" Prado (stand-in)

2019-07-12 18:16
Are you braindead?
2019-07-12 18:46
I'm not saying that Zews > Cold, i'm saying that MIBR can be way better with a new player. Cold doesn't wants to plays for MIBR anymore, why keep him on the team?
2019-07-12 18:50
The problem is not cold retard. its fallen washedup cant hit those magic awp shots again, its fer not wanting to pracc, its taco always bottomfragging and brazilians believe its because he is support role, there are support players that even topfrag sometimes, only useless taco is the bottomfragger everytime. thats whats wrong with mibr. not coldzera. doente mental baba ovo
2019-07-12 18:58
When i said that Coldzera is the problem? LOL I said that it's time to change the trio Fer/Fallen/Cold to bring up a new good player, they don't fit well together anymore.
2019-07-12 19:06
then you are correct. the trio is the problem IMO
2019-07-12 19:08
There is no way this team works without Coldzera. Lucas and Taco won't ever step up to star level. This team is in desperate need of fire power which they won't get anywhere.
2019-07-12 18:53
Cold is not the same as in 2016/2017, just look at his rating in Cologne. He's not "the best of the world" anymore, and in my opinion, not even a top 20 player. I really think that with a good new player, they can be a good team again.

2019-07-12 18:10
Just like Fer said: "If he doesn't wants to plays with us, why should we keep him on the team?"
2019-07-12 18:18
To stupid for a "professional" player. He should be looking for a replace and use Coldzera until Major.
2019-07-12 18:23
its stupid of them, they used felps when they played the last major with him, he obviously mad at coldzera, but what do you expect? For some reason I was thinking they would be bouncing back to the top, and they never happened, there were some results with stewie2k and tarik but they kicked them, they didnt give them enough time, that was really stupid of them.
2019-07-12 18:40
A team that kick Stewie2k for TACO deserve what happened!
2019-07-12 18:46
yeah, im happy for all of them, stew got fucked by mibr, while liquid kept getting anally fucked by astralis, now they are fucking everyone

Chill out bro, they're in the confrontation part of all this. There is time to settle down until the major and maybe cold play with them in the major. And then they split. I still think that Hen1 is the best option if LG don't qualify for the major.

FaZe Coldzera. I think it isn't bad to see him in other team but he could wait until the major to tell the team that he didn't want to continue...
2019-07-12 18:14
every1 has its breaking point. he is right to leave. the team is dead they have no motivation whatsoever
2019-07-12 18:56
I don't think he is wrong in the leaving decision, just the timing wasn't good. If you really care about your friends you will try to keep your team in the legends ( like in all majors before). Even if they didn't make the playoffs at the major. But the way he choose to leave wasn't good, and if the team don't make the playoffs a lot of ppl will blame him cuz he wanted to go to the bench right before a major instead of wait the new season.
2019-07-12 19:02

2019-07-12 18:21
no he's not good, not even when he played in IMT as a full-time player. valens was shit as well and ynk only played bad teams during his stand-in and still didn't do very well, idk what kind of romanticized fantasy you have about coaches playing but they're usually terrible
2019-07-12 18:35
You must be really stupid. No where are coaches compared to players and when comparing coaches some have never played pro-cs. Kane from navi is an example of a terrible coach standin.
2019-07-12 18:41
all the coaches you mentioned are garbage, not "decent"
2019-07-12 20:21
Listen dummy, i will explain it so even you understand. When talking about if a coach is good or not, it's compared to other coaches and not comparing them with pro players. If someone says their kid is good at fotball, they're obviously not comparing them to premier league players. You don't hold coaches to the same standard nor do you compare them to pro players stats. I can't believe i even have to explain this.
2019-07-12 20:25
obviously you compare them to the level of competition they're at. if your kid is playing in premier league then ofc you compare him to premier league players even if he's a 14-year old one-legged deafmute. if a coach is playing bad and posting bad stats, then he's a bad stand-in and a bad player. it's really simple, try to use your brain

Uh that's unfortunate, good luck to coldzera
2019-07-12 18:21
ahahhahahaa from dead to superdead
2019-07-12 18:23
I don't think anyone sees that Coldzera is embarrassed, their results are a disgrace after SK, emotionally speaking. This may be the only move for coldzera to reach new and better heights. If they failed, they failed, time to move on. Prayers for Coldzera and good luck to MIBR.
2019-07-12 18:24
fuck coldzera. he built this team along with the other two from the core. - he brought taco and zews back - he also suggested to bring lucas on loan - he moaned about mibr speaking english, so they kicked turok and stu and now he leaves it when they need him the most? I don't want him on BIG. What a dog.
2019-07-12 18:38

2019-07-12 18:24
Wow, rip MIBR/SK. Inb4 Zews plays better than Coldzera 🤣
2019-07-12 18:25
What if we find out that coldzera was the problem????

Extremely Doubtful that zews is the solution though xDDDDD
2019-07-12 18:26
Yes. True.
2019-07-12 18:28
thats not impossible actually
2019-07-12 18:44
Lmao, brazilians are so deluded. The whole team is the problem. FalleN not being 24 years old is the problem, fer not wanting to practice is the problem. TACO being the same shit player for ages is the problem. Not coldzera, the only one to drop decent numbers in MIBR.
2019-07-12 18:54
So... Is cold replacing olof in faze?? I cannot even imagine cold and niko playing together.
2019-07-12 18:56
Coldzera have a major issue. No one will pay any crazy buyout for him (some said $1M) so either he will be traded or he will rot on the bench
2019-07-12 18:25
he probably has a huge salary, they'll want to get rid of him if he's not playing
2019-07-12 18:40
True. Hope we'll see him on another team soon.

2019-07-12 18:45
Why? Because he wants to leave THIS DEAD TEAM? BECAUSE HE WANTS TO WIN GAMES ? MIBR is washedup, but coldzera is not. Why is he an asshole? They didnt win SHIT since 2018, WHY WOULD THEY WIN SOMETHING NOW?
2019-07-12 18:53
This explains why Hen1 didn't stay with Lucas1 then, MIBR Hen1 inc
