Epitacio “TACO” de Melo is no longer under contract with MIBR, he announced on Friday. The Brazilian rifler was removed from the active lineup by the organisation in September 2020 alongside Fernando “fer” Alvarenga and coach Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia following disappointing results during a bootcamp in Belgrade, Serbia.
TACO is currently seeking to form a new Brazilian team alongside João “felps” Vasconcellos, Eduardo “dumau” Wolkmer, Bruno “b4rtiN” Câmara and Bruno “latto” Rebelatto, according to recent reports published by Globo Esporte and Draft5.
According to a recent report from Baserush, the Brazilian team, who will be coached by Olavo “chucky” Napoleão and managed by dead, are in advanced talks with GODSENT, who recently reached an agreement to sell their current roster to FunPlus Phoenix.
As for MIBR, they have only Alencar “trk” Rossato in the active lineup after Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe stepped down from the team earlier on Friday. Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo is also still under contract but will reportedly join Liquid ahead of the BLAST Global Finals.
