cogu to leave ProGaming.TD - Report

February 13th, 2013 17:42

According to, ProGaming.TD have dispensed with the services of Raphael "cogu" Camargo.

The Brazilian legend returned to activity in late August after almost three years on the sidelines, with fans praising the move as they hoped he would replicate the same level of form that made him one of the most talented AWPers in the world in Counter-Strike: 1.6.

However, Camargo has struggled to adapt to CS:GO, and with the team failing to make their mark on the international scene in 2012, the management has reportedly acted swiftly and released the former Made in Brazil ace.

This left ProGaming.TD with a three-man roster as they were already on the lookout for a new player after Rafael "zakk" Fernandes stepped down from the active lineup last month.

To fill these two vacancies, the team reportedly turned to paiN star Felipe "fbm" Mengue and Wilton "zews" de Almeida, who played CS:Source for Yeah.

ProGaming.TD now have the following lineup:

Brazil Lucas "Steel" Lopes
Brazil Caio "zqk" Fonseca
Brazil Caio "rkz" Sinigagli
Brazil Felipe "fbm" Mengue
Brazil Wilton "zews" de Almeida

Stay tuned to as we will bring you all the updates from the ProGaming.TD camp if the report proves to be true.

Yeah in the period where F0rest and Neo was at the very top of their play and Spawn was still amazing, pretty much the only player of the 4 best players of all time to not play in that period was Potti.

CS:GO is way faster than 1.6, so cogu never had a chance. He isn't young enough to adapt to new game. GL IRL
2013-02-13 18:24
haha and ESC are young enough? they seem to adapt just fine :D
2013-02-13 18:47
They didn't miss years I guess.
2013-02-13 19:15
they didnt adapt very well at all, theyve just put in a hell of alot of hardwork since realising they arent on the same level as they were on 1.6
2013-02-13 20:03
was good to see him back anyways

Why csgo scene is so dead? I look to LoL, SC2, Shootmania, etc... there is so many global events with qualifiers and live streams... comparing to those games, csgo scene is pretty boring.
2013-02-14 16:37
Playing cs:go = 1hr matches, ugh, broken ELO system (need one individual ranking and one team ranking) the pressure/stress this builds up in players makes pugging a non-enjoyable time. ESEA is 100% worse. I've seen kids get flamed for an entire hour for bottom fragging on the winning side. Look at the lack of respect above for a player who did alot for the community. If the game was made up of more players like semphis (respected pro) and less players like sgares (abrasive shit-talker) the game might be more fun, imagine fun. Game was so much better b4 steam existed.
2013-02-15 06:56
"bb noob" ???? wtf r u talking about guys? Ok, he wasn't so good in csgo as he was in 1.6 but i gotta respect him for what he was...he is a legend, no mattaer what u say...i will remember him 4 ever, his sniper skills were amaizing, he won a lot of tournaments. WHAT DID U GUYS WIN? NOTHING, SO STFU U LOWS...
