FireGamers release prd
FireGamers have confirmed that Arthur "prd" Resende has been relieved of his duties.
This decision comes just days after the team's participation in the WCG, where they defeated fnatic in their last group encounter but still failed to go beyond the first stage.
Arthur "prd" Resende had joined FireGamers in September to fill the shoes of Bruno "bit" Fukuda, but he has now been shown the exit door for the third time in the space of months.
According to team captain Renato "nak" Nakano, internal problems, and not Resende's displays in Chengdu, were behind this decision.
"The main reason was his relationship with the other players... personal reasons, nothing to do with his ingame performance," Nakano told HLTV.org.
"The five of us spoke and prd himself realised it really was not right."
FireGamers have now a four-man roster, with Nakano indicating the new player will soon be unveiled.
"We are still looking for our fifth player, probably in a week at most we will announce him," he noted. "The team continue with plans for 2010 and we still have a lot to do to achieve our goals."
FireGamers have now:
Bruno "bruno" Ono
Renato "nak" Nakano
Lincoln "fnx" Lau
Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
