paiN sign saffee

paiN have announced the addition of Rafael "⁠saffee⁠" Costa, who made waves in Brazil's lower echelons with Paquetá.

Last week's report, which stated that saffee was slated to make the move from Paquetá to paiN, has now been confirmed. The 25-year-old will take over Paulo "⁠land1n⁠" Felipe's place on the roster, as the latter was unable to secure a visa for the United States and has therefore been moved to a backup role.

land1n was moved to a backup role due to visa issues

saffee, on the other hand, already lived in the United States last year when he was a member of New England Whalers, although it was upon his return to Brazil that he blew up, amassing a 1.27 rating and becoming a pivotal player in Paquetá.

Following a successful 2019, with six domestic titles and a Big Event appearance at StarSeries i-League Season 7, paiN were ready to make the move to Canada earlier this year, but were disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic and have since been competing locally. They missed out on a spot in ESL One: Road to Rio after a loss to Imperial in the play-in, but were then able to secure a spot in Gamers Club Masters V thanks to their performance in the CLUTCH Redragon Challenge in June.

With the addition of saffee, paiN are:

Brazil Vinicios "⁠PKL⁠" Coelho
Brazil Wesley "⁠hardzao⁠" Lopes
Brazil Rodrigo "⁠biguzera⁠" Bittencourt
Brazil Gabriel "⁠NEKIZ⁠" Schenato
Brazil Rafael "⁠saffee⁠" Costa

Brazil Bruno "⁠ellllll⁠" Ono (coach)

Brazil Paulo "⁠land1n⁠" Felipe (backup)

paiN lacks chemistry, other than that they are pretty decent, saffee is a no name, I don't know if I like this signing. We will see.
2020-07-14 01:57
saffe is a very good player, I hope he can play the best of his game on Pain, certainly has the potential to become one of the best players in the world. I'm looking forward to Pain and BOOM going to NA ;)

⁠land1n⁠, the Brazilian RUSH, moved to backup for a dude with 27 maps played. ROUGH. But, that's what happens when you can't get a visa I guess.
