MIBR edge out victory over FURIA to kick off BLAST Premier Spring Americas Showdown

MIBR claimed revenge over FURIA after falling to them in DreamHack Masters Spring, opening Group A of BLAST Premier Spring Americas Showdown with a 16-13 victory on Inferno.

MIBR finally put a halt to their dismal track record against their Brazilian countrymen from FURIA, to whom they had lost their last seven match-ups, by narrowly securing a 16-13 victory on Inferno to kick off their BLAST Premier Spring Americas Showdown campaign.

Although Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan's side had spoiled Alencar "⁠trk⁠" Rossato's debut during DreamHack Masters Spring two weeks prior, MIBR's second go at the match-up proved to bear fruit as they seemed more cohesive as a unit, with Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe shining early on before trk and Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga combined on the CT side to take the map over the line.

kNgV- created numerous openings for MIBR on the attack

A double kill from Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles and triple from Yuri "⁠yuurih⁠" Santos kicked things off for FURIA on the defense, stalling out MIBR on the A site to take the opening pistol round. Subsequent conversions against the T side's ensuing force-buy and eco put FURIA further ahead, with a mid push from arT in the first gun round allowing his side to add another to their tally, leading 4-0.

The mind games between the two sides began here as a battle for map control unfolded, FURIA's relentless aggression and MIBR's slow pace resulting in uncommon rotates and bombsite stacks as the teams made an attempt to outwit one another. It was MIBR who initially emerged as the victors of the back-and-forth thanks to stellar rifling and entry kills from kNgV-, gaining ground as they won seven of the ensuing eight rounds to pull ahead, 7-5. HEN1's AWP and multi-kills from Kaike "⁠KSCERATO⁠" Cerato and arT allowed FURIA to stabilize towards the closing portion of the first half, grabbing three final rounds to narrowly pull ahead heading into the side swap.

MIBR immediately evened the score as they took the second pistol for themselves, defending against FURIA's force to push up to 10-8. A hero AK buy almost gave arT's men an early round win as they found two opening picks in round 18, but a quad kill solo site defense from trk kept MIBR in control. FURIA's fate then took a grim turn as an AWP ace from kNgV- was followed up by a triple kill and 1vs1 win from Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo, putting MIBR ahead 12-8 before a fast B push gave FURIA their ninth.

Double kills from trk and FalleN swung momentum back in the favour of MIBR, putting them moments away from closing the game, but HEN1 refused to concede as he found three frags to give FURIA a fighting chance. A comeback seemed in the cards as KSCERATO and company clawed back three rounds to tie the match, 13-13, but MIBR tightened up their defense to take the remaining rounds and narrowly edge out the win.

arT is definitely dumbest player in top20. Without any doubt. They way he dies in every second round is laughable. Is there some doctor that can check him out, he seems retarded lol

In their region it works, since he many times takes someone down with him and he explained that this provides information for the team. I don't think this would work against any better EU team, being prepared against them. Furia would be playing 4v5 almost every round.

GG wp. KSCERATO is out of form definitely. He must stop playing pugs with that morons which i watch on his stream and focus on DM/FFA. GOGO FURIA!
2020-06-02 00:12
Probably he does the same thing everyday and the difference is that u dont see him in live, when he decides to record u start to critisize him

bro, he is proffesional player. He plays with toxic players carrying them with +30 frags every pug match. Its exhausting playing with players with attitudes like that. I didnt said anything bad, i just said what he needs to fix. He is monster all we know
2020-06-02 01:05
I thought u were talking about his streams with his friends. I don't watch that much of pub cs, i think its boring. Even so if he thinks that affect his performance he will change it, u cant mesure in one game maybe he was droping 30 in every training section.

If MIBR would have someone who could support players such as FalleN, fer, kNgV-, they could be really good. Surprising loss for FURIA, they semt like a solid team, maybe it's just BO1, probably it is, but still if FURIA want to be a TOP 5 roster they need changes.

At least in a bo1 Mibr has some chances. They also got lucky with almost every clutch situation going for them. Kscerato needs to regain his form, in the last games he has been off... On the other hand Hen1 is playing superbly.
2020-06-02 00:29
Lucky blablabla why u dont talk that fer and fallen were playing totally out of form. Biased.

fer is out form for a long time now, lmao. Since flashpoint tbh. Fallen won a lot of retakes and clutches, while having positive K/D... Mibr won 3 clutches against 1 clutch from Furia in key rounds, this is statistics from HLTV.... The game was close as hell, but they got lucky with 50/50 situations going for them. How is this biased?

Fer was 0/7 and still has 81 ADR, what a monster this guy is... TRK is really solid as expected, this gonna be the best mibr version since Coldzera left, but with Taco i doubt they will be top 5 again. Kscerato is out of form, idk why but he need to do something about this.
