nak inactive in playArt, shemp joins

May 6th, 2012 23:25

Three weeks after joining the playArt organization with his former mandic teammates, Renato "nak" Nakano has been forced to go inactive and will be replaced by Eduardo "shemp" Ferreira.

On playArt's website it's stated that Nakano has reached a part in his life where he has to prioritize studies over gaming. He's previously been able to balance the two, but his new internship hasn't left him with enough time to practice and travel, so he has decided to leave the team. It is not known whether it is temporary or permanent.

nak hangs up the mouse at least for now

His replacement is Ferreira who is a former member of GameCrashers, with whom he placed 4th at WCG Pan-America last year. He was also a part of FireGamers last fall along with Nakano, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo and Bruno "bruno" Ono.

According to playArt's website Ferreira was added because his playstyle is very similar to Nakano's which will make the adaptation easier.

Brazil Bruno "bruno" Ono
Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Brazil Lincoln "fnx" Lau
Brazil Eduardo "shemp" Ferreira

It is currently not known whether or not playArt is planning on attending any international events in the near future, but given their ZOWIE sponsorship and player change, you can expect some activity from the Brazilians.

gl but why not urb?
2012-05-06 23:26
shemp is more friendly than urb, also he is more "mature". fln&cia really like the friendship out of game.
2012-05-06 23:35
yeah, bruno must be the most friendly guy ever, if you know what i mean
2012-05-06 23:39
2012-05-06 23:40
2012-05-07 00:00
Is he gay?
2012-05-07 00:10
no, because bruno, for lots of people from the BR community, is the worst top player. FalleN, nak, and bruno are really close friends, so lots of people here say that bruno is just part of the teams because of it.
2012-05-07 00:25
bruno is great player...
2012-05-07 00:33
2012-05-07 00:49
what?bruno is fucking awesome o O
2012-05-07 00:41
2012-05-07 00:49
2012-05-07 02:10
was* fucking awesome
2012-05-07 15:54
Thanks ;) I guess btt would be a good replacement for him then.
2012-05-07 00:45
Is this replacement a step back for the future, or can they become better with him :)?
2012-05-07 01:49
i really dont know, shemp is a young blood, sick aimer, nak is a sick aimer too and have lots of XP.
2012-05-07 02:46
Imo when it comes to Brazil it dosent matter if they are young or old, nowa days... They will quit sooner or l8er anyway :)
2012-05-07 04:00
any mortal will "They will quit sooner or l8er anyway :)" (:
2012-05-07 04:59
Haha yes ofc ;) But imo I give them 6 months top :)
2012-05-07 05:01
playArt become much better with him, shemp is for sure top 3 aimer in brazil, atm shemp > bit, ell, nak. They just need some time, and stability
2012-05-07 15:59
I love the top players from Brazil, but they never have the same line-up or orga :S
2012-05-08 00:20
2012-05-07 00:24
Brazil jvn 
-urb +++++++++=SHEMP
2012-05-06 23:33
shemp is better..
2012-05-06 23:35
urb isn't a good player. just take this out of your heads. he is sucking in game.
2012-05-08 18:20
Portugal neeve 
Isn't shemp very young?
2012-05-06 23:25
2012-05-06 23:28
felippe maybe?
2012-05-06 23:40
mm i think shemp is better
2012-05-07 03:15
hell yeah, 50x better lol i'm asking about the very young guy neeve is talking about :P
2012-05-07 03:24
2012-05-08 18:20
-fln -fnx +atx +kenshex :P
2012-05-08 18:22
Brazil Lucasxp 
shemp , very good player.
2012-05-06 23:26
They always get in trouble when bit is playing, they should cut him.
2012-05-06 23:26
i agree with them that changes aren't good for the teamwork, but once a change is already needed, they should try to make the dreamteam already! -bit -bruno +btt +prd or mch, mkr etc... so many better player than those two imo.
2012-05-06 23:35
CRAZY? -bit? shemp fnx fallen BTT bit
2012-05-08 18:21
nak legend!
2012-05-06 23:27
Brazil oc^ 
gl :)
2012-05-06 23:27
nice, hope to see them at DH
2012-05-06 23:27
wtf, didn't know they were still together.
2012-05-06 23:30
2012-05-06 23:30
Sucks. I always liked nak!
2012-05-06 23:31
Three weeks after joining the playArt organization with his former mandic teammates, Renato "nak" Nakano has been forced to go inactice and will be replaced by Eduardo "shemp" Ferreira. inactive*
2012-05-06 23:32
nice. not the brazilian dreamteam yet, but nice. btw, they're at the grand final of a small lan event, playing with nak instead of elll (bruno)
2012-05-06 23:32
-ell -bit +prd +kng Fallen Fnx Shemp Prd kng is this the dreamteam ?
2012-05-07 00:02
i'd rather the pre-edit line-up :D i mean, btt instead of kng. but that's because i only saw kNg @megaacervus... i don't know if he's that good, or it was just one great tournament. but #49
2012-05-07 00:06
yeah, i edited because ive forget kng :S
2012-05-07 00:40
What would be dreateam ?
2012-05-07 00:02
-ell -bit and you've many options here: btt prd mch mkr kng
2012-05-07 00:04
fallen, fnx, mch, bit, btt
2012-05-07 01:48
shemp was playing very well on PSY LAN Cup today, I think he was a really good choice to replace nak
2012-05-06 23:33
Again them?
2012-05-06 23:33
Who is igl?
2012-05-06 23:34
probably bit.
2012-05-06 23:35
it's fallen for the last months
2012-05-06 23:41
omg nak :(
2012-05-06 23:34
good decision :)
2012-05-06 23:37
Nakano was a legend of the e-sport. When served by MIBR was sensational! Will be missed. GL
2012-05-06 23:37
Sweden ZOD! 
-bit +prd and its ok.
2012-05-06 23:38
gl ! :D
2012-05-06 23:38
nak is such a legend, always when i read his name it reminds me a match vs nip when he got 30+ frags on CT at train.
2012-05-06 23:38
2012-05-06 23:42
That was the only match mibr beat NiP, before that they lost 16x14 and 25x23 on dust2 and get raped on inferno, 16x2 I think.
2012-05-06 23:46
They also rape the legendary NiP with spawn in CPL Winter 2006, 20:10 on the train with pava instead of fnx.
2012-05-07 03:53
That is the match the american guy is talking about -_-'
2012-05-07 05:18
ceh9 is legend too. Remember his 0-15 vs mTw on train and his 30+ frags also on train and also vs mTw (:
2012-05-07 00:36
2012-05-07 17:03
2012-05-08 16:38
2012-05-06 23:39
the best individual players right now here in brazil, fallen fnx shemp mch kng
2012-05-06 23:39
true story
2012-05-06 23:44
something like this
2012-05-06 23:45
mch and kng were killer machines in gamerhouse, but, kng y awp as fallen i didnt make sense to put them together
2012-05-07 00:01
kNg can handle all weapons like FalleN, shemp and bit. them all can play in a high level with ak, colt, awp but i only said that they are the best INDIVIDUAL players, not as a team.
2012-05-07 00:09
kNg and falleN are way better than almost all players in brazil with ak/colt. funny
2012-05-07 16:02
kng's ego and fnx's ego on the same team? haha, would never work
2012-05-07 19:19
Peru dbie 
I agree, he's already a legend. He was huge to MIBR's ESWC 2006 title in one of the most changing and competitive years CS had in its history (followed by 2010 IMHO).
2012-05-06 23:40
+1 expect for the 2010 part imo :P
2012-05-06 23:45
who is better, nak or the new one? GL playArt!
2012-05-06 23:43
Actually... shemp OFC!
2012-05-06 23:46
shemp has been playing way better since 2011 imo
2012-05-06 23:46
2012-05-07 00:01
Please someone from Brazil. Tell me the best brazil lineup at the moment.
2012-05-07 00:03
2012-05-07 00:10
in my opinion bit mch fnx shemp fallen
2012-05-07 00:12
World Moya 
this moment is the playArt.ZOWIE - fallen, fnx, bit, elll and shemp also have GameCrashers - BTT, mch, cky, urb, TBA (i believe in a few days a player appears)
2012-05-07 00:21
he wants a dreamteam line-up, not a real one i believe :D
2012-05-07 00:43
oh really, haha
2012-05-07 04:47
did prd leave gamecrashers?
2012-05-07 04:21
prd is in army5! Pedro "maluk3" Campos Pedro "gordo" Azenha Arthur "prd" Resende Alan "adr" Riveras Vitor "vass" Tercero Gabriel "lostt" Lobato (Manager) adr, maluk3 and prd is "famous" in the Counter-Strike 1.6
2012-05-07 04:50
the best lineup is platArt.ZOWIE! But the lineup could be better with the departure of Bruno "ellll" Ono or Bruno "bit1" Lima for the entry of MCH.
2012-05-07 19:38
GameCrashers : Thiago "BTT" Monteiro Olavo "cky" Napoleão Matheus "urb" Oliveira Jean "mch" Michel Gomes TBA
2012-05-07 00:12
this lineup needs a sniper.. haha
2012-05-07 19:39
The best possible lineup
2012-05-07 00:10
Ukraine smy+ 
bad:/ -elll +btt?
2012-05-07 00:19
World Moya 
not, i believe who BTT would not leave the GC
2012-05-07 00:23
that would be great!
2012-05-07 19:40
ddddddddddddddddddddddddsome osakdooooooo kokaa in me
2012-05-07 00:21
very bad nak was good
2012-05-07 00:22
shemp is a nice player but he isn't a player o cant replace nak... nak is way better than shemp
2012-05-07 00:27
We are in 2012, not 2006 or 2007. And in 2012 shemp is playing much better than nak, as he did in 2011.
2012-05-07 01:54
I will miss nak, back in the days when he was in mibr he was amazing. I hope the best for him and for shemp as well, now he can show us his talent ;) I would like to see more changes in playArt but let's see how they performance with this lineup anyways good luck to them!
2012-05-07 00:31

2012-05-07 17:16
