Almost everything has already been said and written about MIBR sports problems. Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo’s team is in the biggest hole since it restored at the end of 2018. As if that was not enough, the South American five swapped their current coach Wilton “zews” Prado, who stepped down from his position.
The 32-year-old’s decision is a big surprise, even if we take into account the poor results of the team in recent months — currently MIBR is only 25th in the world ranking. The answer why zews decided to take this step can be found in the extensive statement he published.
An experienced trainer feels somewhat responsible for the failure of the project and the results of the team, he also says that he is tormented by far more complex problems than the players might think. Problems which, according to Prado, can be solved only through deeper changes within the staff and work culture. As for the outsider, he is not thinking about withdrawing from the professional stage yet and is waiting for offers from organizations interested in his services.
Prado came to MIBR in December 2018 as part of the exchange with Team Liquid. Together with him, the club managed by Immortals Gaming Club also hit Epitácio “TACO” de Melo, and Jake “Stewie2K” Yip went in the opposite direction. In retrospect, it should be said that it was the American who came out best on the entire transaction, because last year, despite the successful opening to Intel Extreme Masters Katowice, was completely unsuccessful for MIBR. Already in June, the team moved to the bench João “Felps” Vasconcellos, in mid-July at his own request Marcelo “coldzera” David, which allowed Zews to perform at the last Major. New players were supposed to come to the team’s help, but one could get the impression that each transfer only added stones to the garden.
Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo announced that at the moment Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia, former manager of the formation, will be the coach of the team. The team is not looking for a new trainer.
The composition of MIBR now looks as follows:
- Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo
- Fernando “fer” Alvareng
- Epitácio “TACO” de Melo
- Vito “kNg” Giuseppe
- Ignacio “meyern” Meyer
- Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia – coach
