CS:GO team MIBR disbanded over cheating scandal

Made in Brazil(MIBR) the top Brazilian Org dropped 3 players from their CSGO roster following coaching scandal.

MIBR, have dropped star players Epitacio ‘TACO’ de Melo, Fernando ‘fer’ Alvarenga, and coach Ricardo ‘dead’ Sinigaglia following the recent drama surrounding coaches being banned.

Fer, TACO, and dead were released from MIBR’s roster on September 13, nearly a week after a major coaching scandal rocked the CS:GO world. The org has been losing to teams that it would normally have no difficulty winning against.

Dead, who had been with the team since March, was one of the coaches implicated in scandal after it had been determined that he, along with 10 others across the esport, had knowingly used a bug to gain a spectating.

MIBR is a Sub organization or its parent company Immortals Gaming Club, and the decision for the change has come from them, there is nothing MIBR or their players can say to revert the decision as they have been performing poorly after the cheating scandal.

The Brazilian organisation shared the news of their sudden change in roster through a tweet this weekend-

“We are living in a moment where it is important for MIBR and MIBR fans to make changes, and we will be making some adjustments to the roster over the next several weeks,” they stated.

The organisation also thanked the three parting members for their time spent with the team.

The team will continue to reshape its competitive roster and will be “retooling” ahead of the premier fall competitions, including BLAST and Flashpoint 2.

The three formed a core that existed for nearly two years before being dismantled in the wake of this announcement.


Player Reactions

“I just want to make it clear that it was a decision made exclusively by the organization,” TACO wrote in a Twitlonger after being dropped


“I’m sad that I have to leave my teammates FalleN, fer, kNg, trk and dead – especially in the current team situation, but looking forward to seeing what the future holds!”

 Fer also promised he’ll reveal more details about the situation in the future. “At this moment, I can’t talk too much about the situation, but as soon as what’s pending with the organization is solved, I will speak myself about it.”

FalleN Calls Quit

Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo has also announced his departure from the MIBR line-up, citing his dissatisfaction with the roster changes. . The AWPer and IGL who’s often regarded as one of the best players to have ever touched the game has shared his thoughts through a Twitlonger post this sunday.

“At this moment, more than ever, I need to be faithful to my values and heart to close this chapter of this beautiful story and, with regard to the fans who never left us, I communicate my [dissatisfaction] with MIBR in front of the decision to completely overhaul the line-up I chose to play for.” He futher said “I’m not satisfied with the recent decision. The only thing I’m sure is this isn’t where the game ends for me”. This brought relief to his fans that he wont just stop playing CS:GO and jump to Valorant which is the current speculation in the community.


Other pros and prominent figures of the community reacted- some in favour of the org, others with the players.
