cogu announces retirement

Made in Brazil have announced that Raphael "cogu" Camargo has decided to retire from gaming.

The Brazilian veteran had indicated prior to the WCG qualifier that he would most likely call time on his gaming career before the end of the year, and he has now officially decided to put an end to his playing days after being admitted into law school.

This is the second time Camargo has decided to retire from gaming, after in 2006 he quit Made in Brazil to become a professional football player in Qatar, an experience that did not bring him much success as he ended up returning to the team three months later.

Throughout his career, Camargo played a leading role in mibr's success story, helping the team win the CPL World Tour in Brazil in 2005, the ESWC World Finals in 2006 and shgOpen in 2007. 

This decision leaves Made in Brazil with a four-man roster, with the team stating that further news about their future will be announced in the space of hours.

Made in Brazil have now:

Brazil Guilherme "spacca" Spacca
Brazil Thiago "btt" Monteiro
Brazil Wellington "ton" Caruso
Brazil Bruno "bit" Fukuda

Cogu used to be the best awper of the world. He is a legend as HeatoN, Potti, SpawN, fisker, etc. Using an AWP he was a monster. This year he is retiring, then he hasn't that motivation to keep playing, our community is so unfair and uses to judge a very good player, just about his actions lately. Well, FalleN is growing up too fast. This entire mess of brazilian top teams is getting us so twisted, we can't even trust a player's statement about the team friendship.

There goes in my opinion Brazils greatest cs 1.6 star of all time. It is a shame that we will miss out on such a player in the future, in many discussions on the worlds best awper you could always bring in cogu`s nick without raising any eyebrows. He was a real impact on any version of mibr, and with firegamers deciding to drop prd I had a little dream that cogu would drop his plans on retirement that was spoken of before wcg and join them. Tha dream is shattered, but I think the brazillian scene will arrise a great team in the shadows of cogu`s retirement, firegamers went out early in wcg but showed us something agains fnatic.

Okay, here we go again. Now Mibr will take someone from firegamers. Then Kikooo makes a return in FG. Then kikooo plays bad at one event and they kick him and cogu makes a comback. Then mibr plays bad at one event and picks up cogu from FG all over again. I mean, that's how it always is. In some way or another. What's your guess? Who joins who? Take a pick down below:

kikoooo will never comeback again. yesterday, mibr manager's chataum told on his twitter that line was already chose, but after a while some problems happened. brazilian community think there will be something like nak fnx bit fallen btt/bruno/ton, however nobody knows, maybe an unknown player.

pls, you have to understand that I was being ironic/sarcastic. The point is that FG and mibr will change players with eachother all the time, and before you know it, someone comes out of retirement. It has happened before.

2009-11-24 20:58
cogu was probably the best player in brazilian history. the 4 players that firegamers has at the moment are in a completely different league than what mibr has now, there's really no comparison anymore. right now, bit is the best player in brazil that ISN'T on FG, so if their drive to win is as strong as it used to be, they'll patch things up and put him back on the team. bit, nak, fallen, fnx, bruno is the team that should have gone to WCG and would have made it out of groups if they did (although i do think BTT is better than bruno).
