He expressed his disagreement with MiBR’s decision and wrote, “I’m not satisfied with the recent decision. Last weeks have been tough and challenging and that is why I’m asking to leave the active roster while I think on my next steps.

FallenN was the one who led MiBR when Immortals Gaming Club took over the SK Gaming roster. Since then, MiBR has enjoyed its fair share of victories. Even though he doesn’t agree with the organization’s decision, he has immense respect for them. He wrote, “I leave here my immense thanks to the MIBR for having believed in our team, for the opportunities and investments made. To the teammates and other players who played with us, my respect and thanks for the days of learning we had together. And, with great pride, I also thank the Brazilian fans who built this story with us. It is the love of the fans that inspires me and makes me believe that the best is yet to come.”

This isn’t the end of the road for the Counter-Strike veteran and he mentioned, “The only thing I’m sure is this isn’t where the game ends for me.”

All the players will definitely be on the lookout for opportunities elsewhere. It will also now be an uphill task for MiBR considering they will have to build their active roster from the ground up. “kNvG” and “trk” are the only two remaining members and it’ll be interesting to see who their new teammates are.
