Bringing Brazil to the Major: How 21 players fought their way to the biggest stage

Brazil will have 14 new players at the Major and more representatives than any other country at PGL Major Stockholm. But how did their scene get here at a point when they are missing a true title contender?

The PGL Stockholm Major will have the most Brazilian representatives in Major history. At 21 players, this is 6 more than at StarLadder Berlin, the tournament which previously featured the most Brazilian players. When it comes to the top 16 stage, Stockholm has not yet passed the highest number of participants, but considering only half of those teams have been decided and we are already over halfway there, the odds are that this Major will see the most Brazilian attendees any way you slice it.

But how did Brazil get to this point? At the very top level, the country has actually dropped off quite a bit from where it was a couple of years ago. The old MIBR core featuring legends of the game had been declining for quite a while and eventually disbanded, the once competitive Immortals team met its demise years ago now, and reunion attempts with those players have not found close to the same success. FURIA were then the next top-level Brazilian team to arrive and had quite a long time of sustained success, until their drop off after the departure of Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles.

FURIA are Legends going into Stockholm

While Brazil at the very highest level had fallen off, the grassroots and sub-top scene has been booming, with more and more teams and new players emerging all the time. At the time of the StarLadder Major, there was of course the old MIBR lineup, which Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David had just left. There was also FURIA, who, following their disappointing result at the Major, replaced Rinaldo "⁠ableJ⁠" Moda Junior with HEN1. ex-Luminosity had just disbanded, with the different players going their own ways. In NA Premier we had INTZ, who had just added Ricardo "⁠boltz⁠" Prass, and TeamOne, who still had Alencar "⁠trk⁠" Rossato, Bruno "⁠BIT⁠" Fukuda Lima, and Bruno "⁠b4rtiN⁠" Câmara on the books.

There were many other notable teams competing back in Brazil, and two of them would go on to become two of the teams that qualified for the PGL Major. Now I won't go into a detailed history of every single one of the notable teams from the region, but examining these old lineups through the lens of the Stockholm teams allows us to see that many of the seeds blooming in October of 2021 were sown many years ago.

The strong and well-developed scene within Brazil is what has allowed the country to thrive and grow each year even though they haven't won as many tier-one trophies. This kind of regional scene is imperative to creating a healthy scene in the long run and is what the community has observed happening in Denmark for many years now. It's also what has allowed for Poland to have its first newcomers to the Majors in three years and also what has hampered places like Sweden and, yes, North America. Since London's Major in 2018, Sweden has only had four new players play at Majors, three of which are from NIP at Stockholm. The United States has had five, and only one at Stockholm, and Canada has had zero new players since London 2018.

Setting tangents about how to keep a healthy regional scene aside, we can touch on some notable moments in the thriving Brazilian scene in the past two years and look at the stories of the teams who qualified to see why and how they got to where they are now.

Brazil Romeu "⁠zevy⁠" Rocco (Sharks)

It would be best to start where it all began, with the old MIBR team. The death of that old core marks the biggest shift in the Brazilian CS landscape since the rise of FURIA in 2019. Each of the players went their own way, and for some, it seems to have been for the better. After the departure of TACO, Fernando "⁠fer⁠" Alvarenga, and FalleN, the remaining two players in Vito "⁠kNgV-⁠" Giuseppe and trk built the lineup which went on to become O PLANO. This team opted to not stick with the MIBR organization and now plays for 00Nation, but they were unable to qualify for Stockholm from North America.

But FalleN and TACO both took quite different approaches to the next stages of their career, with both finding their own kind of success. FalleN took the plunge and joined a North American team in Liquid, reuniting with former teammate Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip. Despite some troubles early on with in-game leadership duties and a couple of poor performances, Liquid has looked promising going into Stockholm.

Meanwhile, TACO went in a completely different direction. Instead of joining an existing team, he created his own after diving into the depths of talent in his home country, making a lineup full of youngsters that he could nurture as he decided to take on a leadership role. He stuck together with manager and coach Ricardo "⁠dead⁠" Sinigaglia, joined up with repeat teammate felps, and got to work building the new lineup.

Eventually they decided on signing b4rtiN and Olavo "⁠chucky⁠" Napoleão from TeamOne, dumau from Yeah, and latto from RED Canids, and the lineup joined Swedish organization GODSENT at the beginning of the year. Things started out pretty rough for the team as they had to work their way through countless role clashes and inexperience from the majority of the team, but they trusted the process and hit their stride at exactly the right time.

dumau had his first big LAN experience at StarSeries S8

After failing to qualify for cs_summit 8 and going out in the groups of DreamHack Open June, GODSENT finally found their form come September. Over the course of the month, they easily qualified for IEM Fall, won DreamHack September in a close series over Extra Salt, qualified for IEM Winter by upsetting FURIA, and their run culminated in an impressive second place finish at the final RMR event after the TACO-led side beat Liquid and secured themselves a spot at the Major.

Over in FURIA in the meantime, the addition of Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson at the start of 2021 marked yet another time that a Brazilian team added American players, much like SK, MIBR, and Yeah did in the past. The move didn't work out as well as they had hoped, with junior not being able to truly fit in and fill the shoes left by the surprising departure of HEN1, who was ranked the 16th best player of 2020 by HLTV. The roster turbulence of needing to use Lucas "⁠honda⁠" Cano for many events saw the team enter a sort of slump during the Summer. The lineup featuring drop is still relatively new, and Stockholm will be the place for FURIA to show that they still have what it takes to compete at the very top.

paiN have stuck together for quite a while

Joining FURIA and GODSENT from the North American RMR, paiN are still relatively new to playing in the region, as they only transitioned north one year ago in September. The move saw the return of PKL and NEKIZ to the continent, with both of the individuals having played with Luminosity in the past.

The most impressive aspect about paiN's story is that their lineup has been extremely stable and consistent. They are the third oldest five-man lineup competing at PGL Stockholm, with TYLOO being the oldest and Gambit being ahead of paiN by just a few days. The core of PKL, biguzera, and hardzao is even older, spanning back to August of 2019. Sticking with a lineup through tough times in regions like Brazil and NA where large-scale shuffles happen regularly can be a good way to rise above the crowd, and this seems to be the case with paiN, who have been fortunate enough to retain their star AWPer saffee despite the 26-year-old being at times in conversation for a move to a better team like FURIA.

The PKL-led squad struggled early on when arriving in NA, losing many a Cash Cup to the likes of Bad News Bears, but they persevered, and what was once a 0-2 loss to Extra Salt became a 1-2 loss, and eventually the occasional 2-1 win. Once it came time for IEM Fall the roster had become a strong tier two team in the region and was able to win the necessary matches to snatch themselves a spot in Stockholm.

Sharks have stayed near the top of Brazil for a long time

More South American lineups moving to North America doesn't mean that the scene back down south is not worth mentioning, however. As said before, the local Brazilian scene is stronger than ever, with the team parity being surprisingly high both in the 2021 RMR cycle and generally over the past two years. Ultimately, Sharks were the product of that, but not after a nearly year-long rebuilding cycle after their lineup, which had gained some international success at the end of 2019, broke apart as players were sold to other teams.

Building around in-game leader jnt, Sharks slowly put together their current lineup by picking up talented players from various other teams. First it was pancc who came off strong performances with W7M. Next was Lucaozy, who had played on DETONA alongside Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira and Renato "⁠nak⁠" Nakano. realziN was also brought on following the disbanding of W7M, while zevy joined following the death of his iteration of DETONA.

Making it to #1 on the SA Regional Major Ranking was not an easy task however, as Sharks were consistently challenged during the 2021 cycle by the likes of MIBR, Bravos, and Paquetá. It's unfortunate that only four teams could make it to the main event at IEM Fall, with the CBCS events preceding it managing to showcase far more teams with potential in a competitive format, but the difference in points between the top two teams being so small in the end clearly demonstrates the team parity in the region.

2021 is a great time to be a Brazilian CS:GO fan, and there are more options than ever for players and teams to support. With an incredibly competitive local scene, teams are pulling in new talents and sticking together for enough time to truly build team chemistry. There is a lot to look forward to in the future, and it starts now as Brazil is about to have the highest representation ever at PGL Major Stockholm.

-1 be calm little brazilian. The article didn't say 2021 is "the greatest time to be a Brazilian CSGO fan" (bc of course that's not true). It said it's A great time to be a Brazilian CSGO fan, which is true. The fact is that after the success we had in 2016/2017, came something which is arguably even more important: our scene grew and got stronger and more stable. Nowadays, we're strong enough so that we can field 4 teams at the Major. Although none of them are currently established tier 1 teams (Furia comes the closest, and no, I won't count Liquid among the BR teams), our future looks BRIGHT indeed. KSCERATO, saffee, dumau, felps, zevy, just a few of the names that could make headlines in future majors. No, we won't win Stockholm. But our country as a whole is getting more competitive than ever (thanks in large part to the legacy left by LG/SK). This might not be our year, but who knows what 2022 or 2023 holds for us? Let's be patient (the worst thing about our community, imo, is our lack of patience). 2021 is A great year to be a BR CS fan because it's a year in which we might see some new talents blossom into the scene. 2022 and 2023 might be even better (maybe even better than 2016-2017 was for us) as a direct result of the strides we made this year. So, PLEASE, learn to CELEBRATE the great things we have (even foreigners are better at this at times than we are, it seems like) in our scene, even if we don't get the Major this year, and stop being so shortsighted ;)

not their fault if AUZ, NA, and South Africa can't compete.
2021-10-23 03:47
But that's not the point. Of course EU teams, in general, are, currently, miles ahead of most BR teams (except for Furia, which is not that far behind most EU teams). Nevertheless, we managed to dominate NA. Even though the region's on life support, it's still a great achievement anyway, considering that this region's much richer than Brazil and should, in theory, be more competitive... But we managed to excel at what little advantages we had and used them to their maximum. The results of that we're reaping now. And that's no thing to smirk at. The real test for EU vs BR will come at the Major. I'll be real with you: we don't have much of a chance of making a deep run... I'd argue that Furia has a decent chance at reaching the playoffs, and Godsent has a somewhat remote chance, but I'll admit that Pain and Sharks stand no chance at all. Still, I think that making the deepest of runs at the Major is not the main objective for Brazilian CS as a whole at all atm. We have a lot of young teams that are beginning to establish themselves (Godsent's the best example of that). I'd bet that this Major will show good, hopeful signs from our scene. Signs that'll show that a real title contender from Brazil is not that far away from coming onto the scene. So, I say: let EU and the CIS have their time. After all, they've also worked very hard to put out strong teams at the Major. However, don't discount Brazil so soon... A new generation is brewing, and although we don't stand much of a chance at Stockholm, I'd say we've got a good chance at surprising some skeptics, and of making somewhat of a splash, before we come out with a truly title contender team like LG/SK was just a few years ago. I'd argue that will not take that long to happen (watch out for what Brazilian teams will be making in 2022 and 2023). Furia, Godsent, TeamOne, Pain, MIBR, 00Nation. Some of these names are somewhat hurt right now, but all of them show at least some degree of promise. It maybe not too long until one, or more than one of them, starts to get a lot of traction. Let's see...

2021-10-23 10:41
Very nicely summarised. This is the best I've felt about the scene since 2017, for reasons you mentioned, but also : - Furia has shown their Core is indeed Tier1 quality no matter how many roster swaps - Godsent is probably one of the most improved teams at the major through the duration of 2021
2021-10-23 12:04

You are saying this because he already felt what is like to cheer for the #1 team. But when you compare how it is to be a BR fan, to how it is to be fan of other countries, it is for sure a great time for us, most of the countries have none or just one team on the major, and very few countries have real title contenders. You should be happy. RIGHT NOW I agree that we have quantity over quality, but to reach the point of have a #1 team contender again, all these teams will have to evolve to such point that one of them (or a mix of their players) achieve something huge. It's a necessary path, and you should enjoy it, literally no other country has a national scene like Brazil has, extremely competitive and sending different orgs to play abroad, it's just great. For example, look at Australia, even with all their money (as a first world country) almost all their orgs have disbanded during corona, and right now they don't even have a single team playing abroad (if you count ex-EXTREMUM, it's one). We have PLENTY of teams playing on USA and Europe during all the year, we see new prospects rising... you should definitely being enjoying it. The only other country that you will have more fun being a CS fan of, is Russia, this is their year and they have plenty of top 30 teams, including the best.

+11111 like EXACTLY that. I hate the fact that our community can't simply ENJOY things. Enjoy what we have now and BE PATIENT so that we may have even more in the future. We're taking such HUGE steps forward (talent development, Furia just became an ESL Partner), and our community is just spilling negativity all over the place and all over teams which are sacrificing and dedicating themselves so much to represent us well. Let's just cheer and enjoy this moment, for once. Brazil's already a great CS nation, let's continue with the positive strides and prove our worth once more (even if we don't go too far this Major...)

I didn't even mention how important Brazil is to CS global scene, since our numbers on streams and social media, certainly pump the game in general, because investors and advertisement look strictly to numbers to decide where to throw money, so Brazil is a huge player on the CS global pro-scene. Just as a quick proof: literally 90% of the time the most viewed country on twitch (CS) is Brazil, not only with Gaules, but with lots of other small/medium calibre streamers summed up. This list of most viewed streams is easy to check on HLTV home page.

Exactly, as Brazilians we have to give more value to our achievements, this issue even goes beyond the limits of the CS, the Brazilian in almost everything self-deprecates, let's enjoy this beautiful moment, with humility to recognize that we are not the best today, but that we have all the potential to go back to being and just like the keyd stars in 2015 or the immortals in 2017, we can already do damage to this major, as Gau always says:"è major brasileirinho"

You can always climb an easy bracket and get a good team in a bad day or get an awesome day in a hard match. Maybe a little momentum also needed. The odds are not in their side but when they won the first major they made it without the favoritism.

So many players in the Major and your scene cant provide a fucking AWP for Furia, which is the only decent team from Brazil. We better should narrow spots from NA and give these to Africa, would be nicer to see more diversity in further Majors. Lets give 1 spot for North Africa, 1 for Middle Africa and 1 for South Africa. What do you think?

None of the Brazilian teams made it to playoffs last major in fact 2 out of 3 were out at challenger stage while 2 of NA teams made it to playoffs They earned those spots and it's up to them to lose them by bad performing Majors in the past had 16 teams so less spots obviously and there was Americas minor for both SA and NA to compete for spots Now you have 24 teams so more spots and they are distributed to regions based on performance

Were you asking for NA spots to be removed after there was no north-american on the playoffs of 2 consecutive Majors? Did you say SA "earned" more spots for having 2 teams making it to playoffs (including a finalist)? I bet you didn't. And despite the team's performance, SA only got a spot after 2 more Majors. Before that, any SA team that wanted to compete in the "Americas Minor" would have to move to NA what a clown

Dude again what you are talking about was old format major with 16 teams which was in 2017 and right after that 24 teams were introduced with new stages and yes because of poor performance in those majors mentioned na had no legend teams spots so they had 3 teams going up from challengers and guess what that's the major C9 won coming up from challengers stage So just cope harder

how is it underserved? it would be underserved if they had a decent amount of major spots, but they have one, and they are clearly better than the shitty na scene, if not they wouldnt lose their spots. your logic works the same for na, maybe na should have one spot instead of sending shit teams(which are all except for liquid and maybe extra salt).
2021-10-22 22:44
I do believe it's extremely stupid to have brazilian teams (teams, not players) qualify on the "NORTH AMERICAN qualifier" That being said they do deserve it if they win it. I don't think they should be allowed to play on it. I get it from Southafrica, they don't have a qualifier, but Brazil does have one, and if the Brazilian teams were to return to Brazil then they'd increase the number of invites in SA. I also do believe that NA would probably get 3 invites and 3 would go to SA, balancing things out. Also has to be considered that NA gets the amount of slots it gets because of NRG/Liquid on the previous major so <:

For anyone wondering the top nations: 21 Brazil 18 Denmark 17 Russia Honestly I don't think Brazil should play the "North America" qualifier. It's "North America" If you make it to be "The Americas qualifier" and you give them the same number of invites (6 invites) it makes sense. The reason behind why they HAD to play in NA was because there was no SA qualifier.

They play the NA qualifiers because these teams are based in the US, also because SA only gets 1 spot. So imagine the best teams from SA have to play the SA qualifiers and only get 1 spot, while NA has 2-3 serious teams ( but 5 spots) , and then 2-3 joke teams like Bad News Bears get major spots for nothing.

None of them are from NA, they can live there, doesn't mean they deserve to represent North America. I understand the argument for the teams being bad in NA and I don't disagree with that. I just think it's stupid that there are more Brazilian teams in the "North America Qualifier" than actually Northamerican teams. I have an issue with the naming, because then it loses its purpose. You tune in to watch the Asia qualifier and you see 4 german teams and you end up wondering "why in the fuck is this even the Asia qualifier" ya get me. I'm in favor for NA to have only NA teams (and ig southafrica cuz there's like only 1 team and no quali) with only 3 spots and southamerica having 3 aswell or just one Americas (and southafrica ig) with 6 spots. I just want things to make sense lmao. Also that whole argument with "They live in the US" well they made that choice to live in the US lmao. They don't represent NA, they don't speak English/Spanish as their main language nor show an American/Canadian/Mexican flag, they're still as Brazilian as they get. The point of a "North America Qualifier" is to bring people from the "North American Region" to represent the "North Americans". If they all go back to Brazil then Valve would be forced to give more slots to the SA qualifier helping the region grow aswell but ig nobody will ever point that out because that means they need to go back to Brazil when living in America is better.

Actually most of BR teams playing in NA right now are living in Mexico since it’s cheaper and it didn’t had too many Covid travel restrictions. And living here is better than living in Mexico trust me. The point is, you are right in some aspects but teams aren’t moving back to here of they aren’t guaranteed to have more Major spots. So it all’s start with Valve. Also, if you take the BR teams out of the US you literally kills NA scene.
2021-10-23 08:29

I understand the first part, that being said it is them who went to NA thus harming the SA scene. I do believe that Br teams should get 3 teams to qualify and 3 for NA too that way it's fair. I completely disagree with the last part. Let's imagine NA playing in SA because SA has more slots and whatever. If that's the case then a team like Sharks gets fucked over because Team Liquid and EG will most likely qualify over them sucking up some slots. Meanwhile a team like Bad News Bears makes it to the major. The point is that there are enough players on the region, even if nowadays they're not good because the good young talent just went to Valorant. If BR leaves NA, the level of NA will go down surely, but it will eventually go up again as new teams make it to the top. That being said, I'd probably remove spots from both of the american continents and give it to Europe/CIS because I'd rather see Fnatic and OG than Pain Sharks or EG

EG and TL are on Europe for the most part of the year. If you take FURIA, GODSENT, paiN etc of the NA scene you would see them moving permanently to Europe. The NA scene would be like Triumph, ES, BNB etc... no TO would invest prize money on it
2021-10-23 18:12

They can move wherever they want and do whatever they want. We're talking about the major qualifier, not the rest of the year. If Br is not allowed to compete in NA what makes you think they'd be allowed in Europe. The point is that they're supposed to represent SA not NA. Imo there should be 3 slots NA 3 slots SA and that way Brazilians can live in fucking Stockholm for all I care but whenever the major qual comes around they have to return to Brazil and play against their local rivals to make it to the Major. If the Major were about "THe best qualifying" then I'd just make a bunch of qualifiers in Europe and anyone can join and fuck the nation representative shit, if that were the case I'd be okay with having 14 brazilian teams because the system makes sense. As it is right now, it doesn't make sense.

Life is not fair, why do we want fairness? Why don't we give the most slots to the best regions and the least slots to the shittest region? NA is dog. Lets give 5 slots to Brazil and 1 slot to NA.

Because that's not the point of the major, the joke is to have representatives from each region, otherwise you wouldn't even have an Asian qualifier with dogshit tyloo that has done absolutely nothing ever coming in. If you just wanted to have the best teams then you'd have just global tournaments in Europe and maybe some NA and some BR team would qualify. The entire point on SA even having a slot is because they're a different region and Valve wants every region (that plays the game) to be represented based on how many teams they get through in the previous major. "Lets give 5 slots to BR and 1 slot to NA" I'd give 1 to each honestly, only Liquid and Furia are somewhat decent from the Americas, outside of that every team is dogshit, EG is awful, Pain is gonna be a waste of time, I don't think anyone believes that Homesent and Sharks can even get to the main event. But yeah "lets give 5 slots to brazil" lmao I'm okay with SA getting 3 and NA getting 3 that way it's fair for both and we get an actual NA qualifier and an SA qualifier. It'd maker more sense Also, "Life is not fair, why do we want fairness?" might be the stupidest thing I've ever read in this site lmao. "Yeah life isn't just so why would we want justice"

Understand, a spot was only given to SA in 2020/2021, before that there was simply no possibility of a BR team qualifying for the major playing in SA, we were forced to go to NA, believe me it would be much simpler for us if there were vacancies in NA before, then please research, reflect, and understand that BR CS was forced to go to NA.

is good to have those numbers, but because almost all of the boys are younger. its a good signal? yes, but will the high quality game appear?

another failure from Valve, in the American minor, most of the teams from brazil that passed to the major playing in the weakest region, none of these Brazilian teams would have passed through the CIS minor. So they also made a separate qualification for brazil, a complete failure, a bunch of useless Brazilian tier-5 teams

So if brazilians are stealing north america spots, the solution is to increase south america spots..since SA > NA relevancy AT THE MOMENT. PRAISE brazilians for still play this game, otherwise it would have only Danish and Cis teams playing.
