MIBR advance to Flashpoint 2 lower bracket final over MAD Lions

The Brazilian squad pulverized an unfocused MAD Lions on Mirage before closing the series on a fought out Nuke to stay alive in the lower bracket.

The Flashpoint 2 lower bracket semi-final, a match featuring the two Flashpoint 1 finalists, ended up with the Brazilians taking revenge in a two map series, eliminating the previous iteration's champions in 5-6th place to proceed through to the tournament’s lower bracket final, where they will face off against BIG or OG.

The bout started on Mirage, MAD Lions’ pick, but was dominated by Raphael "⁠cogu⁠" Camargo’s men from the very beginning, as they imposed their will 16-3 without much opposition before moving on to their most played map, Nuke.

An early lead by MIBR on their pick looked like it could be smooth sailing towards a 2-0, although it turned into a fought out affair as MAD Lions started to gain momentum in the second half. Ultimately, however, it was too little, too late as Frederik "⁠acoR⁠" Gyldstrand and company fell short, 13-16.

MIBR kept MAD Lions at bay on Nuke to secure a spot in the LB final

MIBR got off to a flying start, losing only the bonus round on MAD Lions’ first buy before standing their ground on the defense, with no weak links on the team to give the Danes a way into the map. It was all smiles on the Brazilian side as they took a commanding 8-1 lead, and although MAD Lions claimed a second round on a forcebuy B attack, they went back to getting torn apart the following round as MIBR cruised to a 12-3 half.

Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira, an outstanding performer on the map next to Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles, downed three in the second pistol round as MIBR swiftly went on to close the map out 16-3 to take the lead in the series.

MIBR were once again first out of the gate, this time on their map pick, Nuke, which this roster has been picking over all others, but MAD Lions struck right back winning the forcebuy and following it up to control the economy early on. It didn’t take long for Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe and company to bounce back, however, as they retook the lead against a hesitant defense to go up 9-6 at the half.

MIBR made it four out of four pistol rounds on the CT side, quickly extending their lead to 12-6 after the first gun round and prompting MAD Lions to take a pause. The Danes then won a forcebuy play on B, after which they regained their confidence and got on a roll to start mounting a comeback, reaching 11-13. The two teams then traded round entering the late stage of the map, but it was finally MIBR who were able to stay strong and retain their advantage to secure a 16-13 victory, surviving in the Flashpoint 2 lower bracket at the expense of the Danish squad.

you think its more likely that they forgot the open stream or made it on purpose for 100K + of people to see it and accuse it of cheating. if they really wanted to cheat it was simpler to open hltv to see the enemy economy and weapons.

nazi? :D you have understanding of this word? :D yess, everyone who does wrong, should be punished. it depends about death penalty tho, but i sure wouldn't mind them being prescribed to pedos and corrupt leaders. just try to remember that you always have a choice to do right and to do wrong. Why you chose exact option, doesn't really matter, it's just excuses.

i guess u do have a point there. it's like a doctor who let's say killed a patient, wont be allowed to continue working in the same hospital, but then he just moves to another city and does the same shit, im not saying vsm is cheating now(i haven't seen any mibr games tbh, but i really hope hes not), but i do believe my example is somewhere from this world before, and if we take it as a fact, would you keep defending the doc when he moves to the third hospital? :))

VSM was 13 when he got vac banned. Kids make mistakes. Thats why Kids dont pay the same way adults do when they make mistakes. I think its fair to allow him to play when he made a mistake at 13 years old.

Besides Furia and OG, these are not good teams at the moment. Also, they are in their honeymoon, people still don't know how they play, see how easy was for Liquid when they actually counter strated mibr? This is what happens when a new team starts, specially in the ones that relies on hype and have talentend players like mibr, they start really well, but usually people figure out how to play against them and then the weak links show up and the hype can't help anymore. Of course, they can even be a top 10, especially changing Lucas, but it's just unlikely to happen.
