dead leaves MIBR, seeks support for new project

The 34-year-old had been suspended from all official duties in August after using the spectator bug in official matches.

Former MIBR manager and coach Ricardo "⁠dead⁠" Sinigaglia has announced that he has been released from his contract with the Immortals Gaming Club, the team's parent company. On Twitter, the Brazilian added that he is putting together a new team that will launch in January 2021.

dead said that he is currently looking for either an organisation or for investors to bring to life his new project, which will also involve six more people.

dead is no longer tied to MIBR

dead had been with the team since 2015, playing a key role in their move to the United States by hosting the squad at his house in Los Angeles in the initial stage of their Luminosity stint. He took over as coach in March 2020 following Wilton "⁠zews⁠" Prado' departure, but spent just five months on the job before being suspended by MIBR for his use of the spectator bug. He is currently serving a 6.5-month ban handed by the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), which determined that he used the bug in five maps between March 2017 and August 2020.

dead was last month removed from MIBR's team along with players Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga and Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo as the organisation sought to rebuild after a disappointing run of results. Shortly afterwards, the squad's in-game leader, Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo, stepped down from the lineup in protest against the changes.

The three players are still tied to MIBR, who will attend their final tournaments of 2020, the BLAST Premier Fall season and Flashpoint 2, with three stand-ins: Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles, Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira and Leonardo "⁠leo_drk⁠" Oliveira.

lets just be real and using little bit brain, it's different type bug, jump bug everybody already know that and because team still can counter strat to that bug, but bug that let you see enemy from anywhere "Cypher Cam Bug" in any map is more broken also almost everyone dont know that bug. that why they got punished. And also fking mr "Dead" himself calling someone for trowing match, but he is cheater too just make it more worse. I dont know how much tolerant you brazillian people are, if that guy from my county i'll be shame.

are you retarded? how can a team counter strat if most teams didn't know about it and also they couldn't see the guy doin it it was literally like and wallhack, people only found out about it because Moses called BIG out for it. look at this and tell me this isn't cheating youtube.com/watch?v=JPRMExTzozo&feature=.. valve didn't punish BIG even tho there's a rule in the rulebook saying that abusing any kind of bug would result in a DQ cus if they DQed BIG they would have to redo the entire major qualifier, so Valve and the TO did it to save face cus it would create a shitstorm.

i never defended dead, i said that the csgo reputation was already ruined before, valve ignored their own rule book just to save face cus they knew it would create a shitstorm if they dqed BIG, you're the one defending BIG, you're downplaying the bug as if it was nothing while it was literally like wallhacks and valve fixed it a couple days after the major cus they knew how much of impact that bug had. also i don't even like dead, imo he is just a leecher, he helped Fallen and CO with a place to live when they first went to USA but after that he was just leeching from them, first he became their manager then after their coach while he had no qualification to do either of these jobs.

They might be printing money for themselves, but they sure as fuck didn't "print money" for immortals. Why would any other org invest in these guys, they're overpriced and I'm sure Brazilian fans will only tolerate mediocrity for so long, especially when there is a team like Furia that Brasileiro fans can get behind and might actually win some tournaments.

People keep forgetting that from a business standpoint making money isn't all about winning tournments. It's about engaging your public to consume your stuff, so you can sell ads, merch, get good sponsors and investors to throw money on you. MIBR lasted 2 years and could have keep going for many more had they not gathered such negative attention over this year. The fact that they don't perform well generates a pression from the fans but their demise were the off-server controversies.

A big reaaon shoulf also be the rise of Furis, creating a rip in the br fan scene, meaning not 100% sale going to sk/mibr etc. A person will always have a place in their heart for their home country, if there is only one team to support in a levels, the sales and fanbase is huge. When another team from the same country comes in, the nostalgic People continue on the previous but creating a smaller percentage fot people supporting the up and comers who are now the a team.

I didnt expect that he was already working on a new project, even more surprising is that he already has people and deadlines. He is not and will never be a coach, but he is a good manager. For those who talk shit about him I recommend watching "thorin's reflections with dead" on YT.
