Recent news MIBR
A lot of people know that MIBR got their success on the professional stage performing under the tag Luminosity Gaming, but only some know that FalleN and his team started to play together being a part of the Brazilian eSports organization Keyd Stars. On 24 February Keyd Stars signed CS:GO roster, that had Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, Fernando “fer” Alvarenga, Lucas “steel” Lopes, Ricardo “Boltz” Prass and Caio “zqk” Fonseca. That was the beginning of the story of going to the top the strongest CS:GO team in the Brazilian division.
Since Keyd Stars, Fernando “fer” Alvarenga has been a loyal teammate for FalleN, having been there and back playing together for more than 5 years. Having played 5 years in the team, the players decided to join another Brazilian organization - Luminosity Gaming. It is an interesting fact that Luminosity ended their collaboration with the ex-roster but helped the players to find new organization. FalleN, fer, steel and boltz got to Luminosity, but zqk decided to continue his career at Team Project Revolution and separated with his teammates. The fifth player of Luminosity Gaming was Marcelo “coldzera” David, who, the same as fer, is still playing with FalleN now.
Until the middle of November, LG showed not very good results taking the 5-8 places at such tournaments as ESL One: Cologne 2015 and DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca 2015. Due to the dark period, the management decided to have some changes in the roster and relieve boltz, steel and nak of their duties in the organization as players and a coach correspondingly, and signed the ex-players of Games Academy: fnx, TACO и zews instead of them.
An interesting fact: Games Academy is an eSports organization that was founded by Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, where he and fer played even in 2014.
The players had 6 days to train and on 29 November 2015 the results of their training became the second place at FACEIT 2015 Stage 3 Finals, losing against Fnatic and getting a money reward of $50,000. In several months Luminosity Gaming became vice-champions again, holding the second place at DreamHack Open Leipzig 2016, and in March 2016 at Intel Extreme Masters X - World Championship they also managed to become silver finalists and LG got a prize of $44,000 for their efforts.
The players kept on training and in two weeks after the end of Intel Extreme Masters X - World Championship the Brazilian get the biggest achievement in the story of Luminosity Gaming. On 3 April, FalleN and his team won over the clear favourite of MLG Columbus 2016 - Natus Vincere by the score of 19-17 and 16-2 and made the whole world know them. This championship was the biggest Major tournament then and one of the most significant events in 2016 года, and the prize pool of a Major championship was $1,000,000 for the first time, but not $250,000 as it used to be before.
During a month the information about secret agreement of FalleN’s joining the German eSports organization SK Gaming telling the representatives of Luminosity Gaming nothing about that. Gabriel Toledo proved the rumors and слухи apologized to his organization. In May LG won another two tournaments which are DreamHack Open Austin 2016, where the main money reward was $50,000, and ESL Pro League Season 3 - Finals, where the Brazilians got $200,000. In June their winning series was interrupted by G2 Esports, that won a revenge match for the lost final at ESL Pro League Season 3 - Finals. At Esports Championship Series Season 1 - Finals LG got the second place and got a money reward of $125,000 and ceased their game activities until passing to SK.
On 1 July 2016 года after the termination of the contract with LG the Brazilian players signed new agreements with SK Gaming where they spent almost two years. During this period of time the roster was changed but FalleN, fer and coldzera always stayed. In 10 дней after the joining, the Brazilians took the first place at the second Major tournament with the prize pool of $1,000,000, ESL One: Cologne 2016 and got one more money reward of $500,000. AFter this achievement the players were having dark times, bad results and constant replacements. SK always got the second places in the tournament bracket and the 3-4 places but they were not able to win. Nevertheless, thanks to their achievements, in 2016 SK Gaming were considered to be the best team of the year and the Brazilians held the first place in the rating from HLTV from May to September, the same as in November 2016.
We should emphasize the game of the player Marcelo “coldzera” David. He got a title of MVP at two Major tournaments: MLG Columbus 2016 and ESL One: Cologne 2016 and was named as the best player of the year. At MLG Columbus 2016, at the match against Liquid Marcelo David, playing for CT, showed a great performance with AWP on the map mirage, and after that there appeared a graffiti in honor of coldzera.
In 2017, the series with no victory was interrupted and SK Gaming became the champions of such tournaments as cs_summit 1, Intel Extreme Masters XII - Sydney, DreamHack Open Summer 2017, Esports Championship Series Season 3 - Finals, ESL One: Cologne 2017, EPICENTER 2017, BLAST Pro Series: Copenhagen 2017 and ESL Pro League Season 6 - Finals, and the total earning of the team was more than $1,200,000 in 2017. This period was the most successful in the story of the organization SK Gaming. From May 2017 to January 2018, SK held the first place in the list of the best CS:GO rosters according to HLTV. That’s why the Brazilians receives the status of the best team of the year again while coldzera succeed again becoming the best player in 2017.
Five months ago TACO left SK Gaming for Liquid, having played with the Brazilians for more than two years. One week before the leaving of Epitacio de Melo, his place was given to the ex-player of Cloud9, Jacky “Stewie2K” Yip. In 2018, FalleN and the team managed to become the champions at only three not very big tournaments: WESG 2017 North American Finals, Adrenaline Cyber League 2018 and Moche XL Esports. After the series of failures, SK Gaming and their CS:GO roster decided to terminate their collaboration and after that the collectives separated and joined MIBR.
After signing of the contracts with MIBR, there were some changes in the CS:GO roster: one more ex-player of C9, Tarik “tarik” Celik joined the team instead of the leased player Ricardo “boltz” Prass. The Brazilian-American roster have been playing under the new tag for almost 3 months, but they have already managed to earn more than $320,000 and to get the win only at ZOTAC Cup Masters 2018. The main money reward of this tournament was $200,000.
