MIBR confirm brnz4n promotion

The 18-year-old completes the move up to the main lineup.

After sending AWPer Adriano "⁠WOOD7⁠" Cerato to the bench on Tuesday, MIBR have announced that Breno "⁠brnz4n⁠" Poletto has been added to the lineup as a replacement for the former captain. brnz4n comes from MIBR Academy, and was by far the standout player on the lineup, posting a 1.25 rating in the past three months.

With WOOD7 serving as both the in-game leader and primary AWPer, these two critical roles would need filling in the new lineup. In a statement on the MIBR website, the team explained their choice of player for each role. For the sniper position, the team has entrusted the new youngster brnz4n with the big green, and are confident in his future performance despite him not playing as the primary AWPer before.

brnz4n will have a lot of responsibility in the new-look MIBR

For in-game leading duties, longest standing team member Marcelo "⁠chelo⁠" Cespedes will pick up the reins. The team cited his already existing input during matches as well as his role as an out-of-game leader as reasons to give him the new role.

MIBR will look to capitalize on their recent string of strong results, culminating in participation at the PGL Antwerp 2022 Major. Despite surpassing expectations and qualifying for the event 3-0 in the Regional Major Ranking event, the squad was unable to make it pas the Challengers stage.

Here is MIBR's new lineup:

Brazil Marcelo "⁠chelo⁠" Cespedes
Brazil Raphael "⁠exit⁠" Lacerda
Brazil Matheus "⁠Tuurtle⁠" Anhaia
Brazil Jhonatan "⁠JOTA⁠" Willian
Brazil Breno "⁠brnz4n⁠" Poletto

Brazil Bruno "⁠BIT⁠" Fukuda Lima (Coach)

Brazil Adriano "⁠WOOD7⁠" Cerato (Inactive)

I guess they don't wanna lose jota + chelo duo, they do a lot impact rifling and brn is young so he can progress a lot on the awp, he played some games in the academy with the awp

Well, BIT did the same thing in 9z when he chose try that was a great rifler to pick up the big green and he did became a great awper. I hope that he can the same again with brnz4n

Really weird, I mean it's a decent move to bench chelo, but now everything has to change in this team, chelo to IGL, brnz4n to AWP, it looked like it all finally was starting to work but now it's another rebuild, I'm not a fan of this tbh.
