meyern: "I don't think I was the missing piece in MIBR"

The 17-year-old says he understands MIBR's decision and wants to make 9z the first Argentinian team to reach a Major.

Ignacio "⁠meyern⁠" Meyer says he was not surprised by MIBR's decision to remove him from the starting lineup just six months into his tenure. The 17-year-old was expected to boost the team's firepower after impressing for Isurus and Sharks, but he was unable to replicate his previous form, averaging just a 0.97 rating for the Brazilian giants.

meyern wants to kick-start his career in 9z after a disappointing MIBR spell

The Argentinian player, who was replaced by Alencar "⁠trk⁠" Rossato in MIBR, believes that he had plenty of opportunities to prove his worth with the team and that his inability to shine proved that he wasn't the right fit for the squad.

"A team always knows what the weakest link is, but I honestly don't think I was the weakest link," he said in an interview with Globoesporte. "It was just a matter of pieces. I do not think I was the missing piece in MIBR.

"I tried, I thought at the beginning that I was the missing piece. But with time, we started having some results that weren't the best and there are always many things beyond results, beyond what you see on the scoreboard, that have a big role inside a team. There were many things that I just couldn't have, I don't know if it was because of lack of experience or because of the way I am, because everyone is different. I have my way and perhaps it wasn't the best for MIBR.

"I think I had time to show my level. Perhaps it wasn't as much time as a player in my situation would have liked, but it was a lot of time. It was six months, and a player can shine in that period and prove that he can stay."

Back in Argentina, meyern is hoping to prove his doubters wrong and kick-start his career in 9z, in which he has reunited with his former Isurus teammate Maximiliano "⁠max⁠" Gonzalez. He hopes that this will be the team with which he will realize his dream of guiding an Argentinian side to success at the highest level, including a Major appearance.

"When I was in Isurus, I thought that was the team with which I'd be able to achieve that," he said. "As time went by, things happened, defeats and sad things came. Today, I think I am in a cool position to realize that dream and I have with me people who respect me a lot and who I respect.

"It is a very long road and we will have to work hard. The good thing is that I am not alone in this dream and we will work hard to realize it."

tbh I think this was the better thing that could happen to Meyern, he is young and skilled, he will be fine you can bet on it. I always followed mibr and like Zews said when he left, they have a culture that will never change cause it's rooted. We who followed them, we can see this, before the untouchables pieces. I honestly dunno how they don't be in shock when Cold left them. Even though Cold left them, they continues with that mentality. A kind of dome must have been formed around their minds so make them think they still the SK of 2017, 2018 because in every interview when they lose or they receive criticism, in every single one, they always say like "we don't need a coach" or "we have more Titles" "have no one in our level". Bro they used to be humble in the past and to me, this is the thing that took them so far and makes them one of the bests. Now looks like they are satisfied or tired to even try to be better than they have been in the past. It's fair comprehensive it was that but they ALWAYS SAYING "we have 14 hours training a day". As Fallen always say in the past "no matter how many hours training, if you don't have the right mentality, you're wasting your time." They have a whole story behind them to not be humble but to ME, that's the piece who are missing.

i agree but I think ever since 2020 they know themselves as wash up and they know and aware the titles are soon to be irrelevant. I mean still relevant but you can't brag since they are not the same team as before and also i think they just use them as excuses cause they can't think of any.

Feels like the missing link is 30% of the time inconsistency from 3 other players in MiBR... meyern in that environment wasn't enable to hard carry as much as cold used to do.

2020-07-04 14:13
in shark he was a monster
2020-07-04 14:14
In Sharks he was playing like a TOP 20 Player. But rn. he is weak, let's be honest.

2020-07-04 18:48
He wasn't the missing piece. MiBR has a lot of bigger problems. Taco being a complete bot, KnG making a lot of stupid decisions in key moments, the lack of good coach, bad strategies, etc.
2020-07-04 14:15

fer also does a lot of hard reads that just end up in him dying and losing... they have good impact most of the time though. And coaches have little impact in teams like that.

He should be glad he escaped that sinking ship. mibr with its current core will never succeed. They are to stubborn and stuck in bad habits. Unless they can break free from that and completely change the way they play noting will change. They will have the odd good result but nothing consistent.

2020-07-05 04:16
I can't see him tiering down his career going from Europe back to Brazil, also, sharks will play EPL. Meanwhile 9z is a team that could overcome on sa, but they have a lot of big fishes, like isurus, imperial or pain
2020-07-06 18:14

2020-07-04 17:45

MIBR core is the problem GL to Meyern, definitely talented
2020-07-04 17:58
Mibr is doing the same thing NiP did back in the day. You dont need a 5th player. Your core is now rotten. You need a core reshuffle
2020-07-04 18:11
yes, org is fine also bcuz core is really popular in brasil so they are still making $ even without results
2020-07-04 18:59
But at least NiP won something and reached high places on tournaments and majors. MIBR is even worse......
2020-07-05 06:56
+1 nip had some moments won iem oakland and some other tournis but mibr with only a zotac cup win in 2018
2020-07-05 10:46
And don't forget about major finals with Maikelele and allu + consistent LAN results. Even with pyth (i.e. without main AWPer) they won DH Masters and IEM Oakland 2016. And the difference between them and MiBR that NiP players didn't make this shuffles. It's all NiP's management fault. They didn't want to do that. While in MiBR the core of players (FalleN, fer and TACO) decided it most likely.
2020-07-05 10:56

2020-07-04 18:31
2020-07-04 18:35
MIbr problem is lack of juice. Old people have less juice then youngsters. All kiddos play like beasts. Taco lost his frag ability for a while. Fallen have alot to do as igl cant carry over 80adr. Fer when lurking, team loses firepower specially on entries still mibr mvp. Kng is awper or riffler? Trk probably a goat escape for mibr issues like always. Mibr deserves respect and has his place in csgo community but we need to be humble with their results and calm the expectations.

anyone with a brain can see that he's not the common factor within mibr's failures. He might have been A reason, but he's not THE reason for mibr's mediocre performance in the past few years.

What a young, humble player. Not blaming anyone for his unsuccessful stint with mibr. You still have a lot of time to improve, go for it. Also the missing piece from mibr is how they actually play. Fer is being too aggressive, losing his team a firepower early in the round, putting kng on higher pressure. Also taco and trk, both does not smartly play the round. If you know you don't have firepower, you need to play smart. And of course, the almighty two faced toledo is behind all this strat

I'm not very convinced of Meyern's decision but we should see the other offers that he would have ... Regarding MIBR at this point it already seems to me a team that is sad, Fallen lives complaining about everything and blaming any player who hits a headshot or dodges an AWP bullet ... Fer is a toxic sh*** that basically does not add to the team in any way but only worsens it with his nonsense. Taco at this point has only bright moments and nothing else Kngv seems to me the best of the 5 because he not only plays well but is good people and it shows. Basically MIBR will continue to be a crap or group of professionals resentful for being infatuated by not progressing / updating their game ... the solution is to remove Fallen and Fer

For me they fucked up so hard 2 years ago when they kicked boltz and felps. It was the dumbest decision i've ever seen
2020-07-05 11:58
Btw meyern must has low self-esteem if he wants to play in this dogshit team, he is much better than this 4 sure. For me he should create a team with vsm, fnx, good IGL and some youngster (Tier 3/2)
2020-07-05 12:07
9z for me should be like this: - meyern (rifler) - bit (IGL) - vsm (rifler, entry) - fnx (rifler, lurker) - try (AWPer) (this guy is 15 year old and has good rating) What do you think?
2020-07-05 12:13
I think fnx right now is not like on his old days... He have won everything and soon be retired, maybe he still plays on pro scene just for play, the team needs another talent who wants to improve...
2020-07-15 14:31
fnx is still very good. Btw lurker doesnt need great aim. He is very experienced guy and fresh team need someone like him
2020-07-16 17:57
We wish you the best manito, great kid
2020-07-05 05:55
GL in future boy.
2020-07-05 06:58
You are so brave, it takes a lot of courage to speak out.
2020-07-05 14:01
the 'hermano' suffered bullying from the 'fallen', poor him, incidentally, he is not the first ... he is an excellent player but to play in the fallen team there must be two psychiatrists on call at the player's disposal 24 hours a day... :) good luck meyern, thanks for playing with us brazilians ...

Meyern, you are the shit. One of the most mechanically gifted players, ever. You just need some smart, experienced players around to shine. You'll get there. We'll be talking about you in the future like we now talk about Olofmeister, or Get_Right. A fucking legend. Never give up.
