felps benched in BOOM

The 23-year-old player is out of the active roster after expressing his desire to pursue other options.

João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos's nine months as an active BOOM player have come to an end, as the former MIBR and SK player is placed on the bench of the Indonesian organization after communicating that he wants to leave the team.

As felps is on his way out, BOOM have been spotted practicing with Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga, who was released by MIBR on Tuesday. Meanwhile, according to a report by DBLTAP, felps is looking to become a part of a new project led by Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo and Ricardo "⁠dead⁠" Sinigaglia.

felps is out of BOOM and could be replaced by fer

In the announcement of felps' benching, BOOM noted that they are "surprised and saddened by his decision" to pursue other options, but that they "fully accept it".

The organization added that the remaining players remain committed "to this organization and each other, and are excited to continue their unprecedented success". Since entering the "online era" in March, BOOM have been dominant in the Brazilian scene, winning 70 maps from 83 played, and claiming eight event wins in a row.

According to DBLTAP's report, felps is leaving BOOM behind to become a part of TACO's project, where he could also link up with 17-year-old Brazilian prospects Bruno "⁠latto⁠" Rebelatto and Eduardo "⁠dumau⁠" Wolkmer.

BOOM are now:

Brazil Gustavo "⁠yel⁠" Knittel
Brazil Ricardo "⁠boltz⁠" Prass
Brazil Marcelo "⁠chelo⁠" Cespedes
Brazil Bruno "⁠shz⁠" Martinelli

Brazil Alessandro "⁠Apoka⁠" Marcucci (coach)

Brazil João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos (benched)

Furia just talked to Chaos because their org is leaving the scenario. Furia's Ceo already said that are looking for a six player like astralis. Nothing was said about removing anyone from the team, including Vini, who are a beast.

''FURIA reportedly do not rule out the possibility of doing multiple changes, with a second player potentially being shown the exit door as well.'' I thought i remembered seeing VINI's name somewhere, Might of just been people presuming it being VINI tbh, But i haven't really looked

It wasn't "his whole share" like you said, it was part of his winnings (1.4k US dol), like he said it here: twitter.com/flusha/status/56455702151379.. And actually, as you can see here: liquipedia.net/counterstrike/IOS_Pantame.. the 1st prize money share was 17k. Your info is way wrong..

well according to the rumors , it is in fact an offer but neither from both of those teams. The team he is rumored to join is gonna be NA based however , my point being that the BOOM guys found so much success together in their own region that he could have waited to see how his team does in the NA region , which they were gonna be part of untill Rona striked.
2020-12-05 22:44
Are you dumb? He’s not going to play in Furia or Mibr. He’s going to play for taco’s team. And three players of MIBR were playing in “tier 3 SA”, now they’re rekting top 15 teams.

Probably wasn't even his choice. Boom was playing with Fer already, they were planning on kicking him, so he left before that happened.

What a fucking idiot, LUL. He's leaving a very cohesive and good team that is classified to play the major to play with TACO, yes, you read it right, TACO + a bunch of 17 yo brazilian weebs. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST

good team how? No offence to boom but they only played against some low tier brazil teams the whole time. He made a good decision now he can play against better competition, assuming that taco's team will stay in NA or EU.

Boom stayed in Brazil due to coronavirus. Their idea is to go either NA or EU. I think he just got a better offer in terms of salary and is leaving.
