The 25-year-old and kNgV- were joined by stand-ins Vinicius “vsm” Moreira, Leonardo “leo_drk” Oliveira and Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles, who stood in for MIBR in late 2020, and wanted to remain with the trio going into the new year, but a breakdown in negotiations between the players and the organization ended up without a resolution that would keep them together.
The standstill between the team and organization has prompted the former stand-ins and the two players still under contract with MIBR, as well as a new addition in Henrique “HEN1” Teles, to search elsewhere in order to remain together as a block under the orders of cogu.
trk played his first matches with MIBR in May 2020 when he was brought in as a replacement for Ignacio “meyern” Meyer, but he had a bumpy ride as the team failed to perform before Epitacio “TACO” de Melo, Fernando “fer” Alvarenga and Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo all ended up out of the active roster.
The newcomer survived the turmoil and remained with kNgV- in a new squad put together for the end of the season, with MIBR going on to finish 5-8th in the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown and fourth in Flashpoint 2, beating teams like FURIA, FaZe and OG along the way.
This leaves MIBR without a single active player less than a month before the start of the BLAST Premier Spring Series, their first tournament of 2021. According to a recent report by Cybersport.pl and Fraglider, the North American organisation has set its sights on the BOOM roster.
