MIBR bench WOOD7

The 26-year-old in-game leader finds himself on the sidelines shortly after the conclusion of MIBR's Major run.

Confirming part of a report from Dust2.br, MIBR have moved captain and primary AWPer Adriano "⁠WOOD7⁠" Cerato to the bench, the organization announced on Wednesday. While no replacement has been revealed at this time, Dust2.br reported that academy player Breno "⁠brnz4n⁠" Poletto is expected to join as the fifth.

In a statement, strategic coach Renato "⁠nak⁠" Nakano cited the creation of a new tactical system with Bruno "⁠BIT⁠" Fukuda Lima and the team's need for a "higher impact AWP" as the primary reasons for WOOD7's removal.

WOOD7 is open to transfer opportunities

WOOD7 first joined MIBR in October of 2021 as a replacement for the former in-game leader and AWPer Gustavo "⁠yel⁠" Knittel alongside Matheus "⁠Tuurtle⁠" Anhaia. Shortly after, Jhonatan "⁠JOTA⁠" Willian was also brought on following the departure of Ricardo "⁠boltz⁠" Prass to the Last Dance.

With this lineup, MIBR dominated the North American scene, easily winning ESL Challenger League North America Season 40, during which they only dropped two maps, and qualifying for the PGL Antwerp Major 3-0 from the Americas RMR.

The team's next tournaments will be ESL Challenger League Season 41 followed by the Pinnacle Cup Championship.

Here is MIBR's current lineup:

Brazil Marcelo "⁠chelo⁠" Cespedes
Brazil] Raphael "⁠exit⁠" Lacerda
Brazil Matheus "⁠Tuurtle⁠" Anhaia
Brazil Jhonatan "⁠JOTA⁠" Willian

Brazil Bruno "⁠BIT⁠" Fukuda Lima (Coach)

Brazil Adriano "⁠WOOD7⁠" Cerato (Inactive)

he is a really good IGL, but his performance is too shy as a player. He needs to have more impact as a player if he wants to be in a top team. He is just not good enough as an awper, so if you move him to just support and rifling you would still have to bench one of the other 4 guys to get an awper in the roster, and the other guys are just too good to be benched at the moment. So this move makes sense to me

2022-05-19 11:01
something like that could work, but the other 4 are playing really well right now and they have players who have experience as IGL (like exit, for example), so I think they probably thought it would be better to remove wood7 instead. Also, not hen1 since he has just joined Godsent and is not that good right now, they should probably get some young gun like zevy or gafolo

SK/LG School. Due to Fallen, Brazil has this culture of having many Awpers who are IGLs. But little by little it's getting more variety... AWP is a very OP weapon to be in the hands of someone who has to worry about thinking about the opponent's game, the teammates game and his own game

I don't think that's the case. Both Exit and Chelo have been IGLs in the past, I think they will go for that again (probably Exit), and just get a good awper (there are some up and coming talents with the awp in brazil right now, but none of them are IGLs).

Great reading my ukranian friend. Mibr look solid tier 2, even with lack of Lan and europe experience, The team always shows great T side tática. Ngl Woody its far from being a great awper. Saffee, fallen, art, gafolo, nython, zevy, pretty much all of them are better.

that's my point, they need a better awp, ok, but woody is solid top 3 igl in Brazil rn my shoot at the dark would be bring zevy and change another player, maybe chelo

he is a very limited awper and "get better with awp" isn't a solution to their problem. they just need to get someone in the team to call and buy ZEVYCE

Idk about chelo’s inconsistency but I know that he yells a lot and it kinda works against teams like Eternal Fire which can easily get tilted and cannot hype if they’re tilted. But of course, it would not work on Tier-1
