fer to make return with Imperial

The two-time Major champion will play for the Brazilian team in the cs_summit 8 qualifiers and beyond.

Former SK and MIBR member Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga is set to return to action as he will step in for Imperial, the Brazilian organisation has announced. The 29-year-old will replace Guilherme "⁠piriaz1n⁠" Barbosa, who has been temporarily moved to the bench while Imperial investigate a potential VAC-banned account owned by the player.

fer will travel to Mexico with the team to compete in the open qualifiers for cs_summit 8, which will kick off on May 1. According to ge, he will remain with Imperial at least through IEM Summer, scheduled for June 3-13.

fer will be a stand-in for Imperial, replacing piriaz1n

fer has been without a team since September, when he and Epitacio "⁠TACO⁠" de Melo were removed from MIBR's starting lineup by the organisation after a run of poor results. In December, he helped BOOM to win the FlowFiReLEAGUE 2020 Global Finals in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but he decided against joining the squad, which ended up signing with MIBR.

The move would have seen fer reunite with Caio "⁠zqkS⁠" Fonseca, whom he previously played alongside in Keyd and KaBuM from 2014-2015; however, zqkS was denied entrance to Mexico and forced to return to Brazil, leaving the team with only four players in their cs_summit 8 qualifier campaign.

Imperial will compete in their following tournaments with:

Brazil Gustavo "⁠SHOOWTiME⁠" Gonçalves
Brazil Arthur "⁠f4stzin⁠" Schmitt
Brazil Cristopher "⁠ckzao⁠" Chalus
Brazil Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga (stand-in)

2021-04-29 16:00
The 16x0 was more the other 4 players fault than showtime's fault in my opinion.
2021-04-29 17:15
a lot of times in a pro game a round ends without a player even seeing an enemy do you really think a team can lose 16x0 because of one player alone?

Totally agree. Back in MIBR days He become too cocky to even admit that He wasnt putting effort to the game as in past, always playing GTA and shit, and being aggressive towards people who talked about it. " im major champion, i know what im doing" Waste of talent, but i guess everyone got tired at some point. He clearly couldn't handle it.
2021-04-29 14:53
He would, but after rejecting Boom’s offer (for the right bc he wasn’t going back to MiBR) and FalleN going to Liquid he decided to stream daily, enjoying his hotass girlfriend, new house and car. Dude is basically enjoying life and taking free monies

Dude, Showtime also replaced Fer in a tournament, in the sk era... Can't he just play with his mates and do them a favor? He's a mthfckn stand in. He bragged about T1, still has more majors than u will ever have... Hltv has so many dumb ppl jeez. Just cause he said he's not signing a contract below tier 1 he can't play? U are delusional... You talk the talk, but missed the walk, get in some t4 team yourself, champ.
2021-04-29 11:24
Yeah... the truth is: there was NO t1, or t2, or t3 org's interested in Fer... so he kept pretending that "he was negotiating with t1/t2 orgs" while no one was giving a shit for him... Now after a lot of "negotiations" that didnt work well he joins a tier 500 org. LMAO!

He never said he deserves better, he just said he wasn't interested in taking a small team and trying to grind it to the top because he doesn't feel he'll want to play for much longer, so he'd rather not play for any org than to waste his final years in a dubious project. After all, it's not about money anymore, since he basically has a living off of skin store, previous earnings and twitch.
