According to a report by HLTV.org, MIBR are close to re signing former player João “felps” Vasconcellos, who is currently a part of INTZ.

The move comes after they traded Stewie2K for Taco and benched Tarik, with a view to form an all Brazilian roster, after a rather subdued performance with the current one.

The report also states that the 22 year old was not the first choice, with ex immortals awper Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe being the name that was suggested, but was revoked by the CEO Noah Winston, due to his poor record of discipline and antics that caused him to be kicked from the immortals roster.

The Brazilian organisation had also approached FURIA ace Kaike “kscerato” Cerato but were turned off by the $200000 release clause.

Felps now returns to the organization he had left around a year ago, with whom he had won ESL One Cologne and ECS Season 3 Finals but left due to an internal tiff. This means that the new lineup is as follows:

Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo

Marcelo “coldzera” David

Fernando “fer” Alvarenga

Epitacio “TACO” de Melo

João felps Vasconcellos

Wilton “zews” Prado (coach)
