Competitive CS:GO has been through a lot of tittle-tattle in the last few weeks. The most anticipated tournament of the summer concluded with a distressing scandal that left a deep stain on CS:GO.
The ‘coach bug’ scandal led to the banning of three coaches. The initial investigation started by veteran Michal Slowinski pointed to the possibility of more names on the list. As a result of which, a series of names were unearthed.
Among the three coaches who were banned was MiBR’s Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia. MiBR experienced a deteriorating run so far. The team failed to perform since the player break that resulted in an early exit at the ESL One Cologne- Europe.
This led to the difficult decision of releasing Fernando “fer” Alvarenga, Epitacio “TACO” de Melo, team coach Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia and Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo just followed suit and decided to step down.
The ongoing crisis left the remaining members uncertain about their future. Most importantly, the roster was cut down to just two active players: Vito“kNgV-” Giuseppe and Alencar “trk” Rossato.
CS:GO- MiBR remaining players feel uncertain about their future
Alencar “trk” Rossato is one-half of the remaining players on the roster. The 25-year-old joined the team in May, replacing Ignacio “meyern” Meyer. But felt disconnected after the mass exodus. The player used Instagram as a medium to express what he was going through.

Indo pro Brasil em algumas horas, vou sentir saudades desse bootcamp, não queria e não concordei com tudo o que rolou mas infelizmente foi assim que aconteceu. Obrigado por todo esse tempo juntos @fallen, @fergod, @taco, @dead_csgo, @camis182 e o @kngvito que ainda está comigo, foi pouco tempo mais foi o suficiente pra eu conhecer de perto o quanto vocês são FODA, amo vocês ❤️ Agora vou usar esse tempo no Brasil pra ficar perto da minha família e amigos e pensar bem em tudo e atualizo vocês nos próximos dias/semanas. E claro, obrigado por todas as mensagens de apoio e carinho ❤️ (Edit: Só pra deixar claro não tem NADA definido ainda sobre o meu futuro)
A post shared by Alencar Rossato (@alencartrk) on
He said, “I am going back to Brazil in a few hours. I will use this time in Brazil to be close to my family and friends and to think long and hard about everything. I will give an update in the following days/weeks. Just to be clear: there is nothing set about my future yet.”
Epitacio “TACO” de Melo shared his dissatisfaction via a TwitLonger post. He revealed that the decision was made exclusively by the organization.
He went on to say that, “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!”

Things look pretty dim for the organization right now. Apart from the fact that a new coach will need to be appointed, filling the remaining vacancies is also an uphill task.
But let’s not forget that MiBR has been pretty dominant, finishing first at the ESL Pro League Season 8 – North America. The organization would be looking forward to redeeming itself during subsequent tournaments. Stay tuned for more updates!
