MiBR Nearing First Valorant Signing For 2023 Season

MiBR is reportedly nearing the first signing since the esports organization got accepted in VCT partnered league for the 2023 season.

MiBR is reportedly nearing the first Valorant signing since the Brazilian esports organization got accepted in Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) partnered league for the 2023 season. As rumored, MiBR are in talks with Keyd Stars to acquire Matheus “RgLM” Rodigoli.

RgLM Nearing A Move To MiBR

Although yet to be confirmed, reliable sources near MiBR have unveiled that the Brazilian esports organization is nearing the signing of Keyd Stars’ player, RgLM. The 20-year-old is said to join MiBR’s 2023 Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) roster.

Should the deal come through, RgLM would be MiBR’s first off-season signing since the Brazilian team got accepted in the 2023 Americas League. The news got confirmed at the start of the month when it was unveiled that MiBR will join KRU Esports, FURIA, LOUD, Sentinels, 100 Thieves, Cloud9, NRG, Leviatan, and Evil Geniuses as one of 10 partnered teams.

A Promising Player

RgLM is a 20-year-old Brazilian Valorant player who started his professional Valorant career in January 2022 with INGAMING Esports. Although RgLM hasn’t signed a professional contract until the start of 2022, he was active in the Valorant competitive scene in 2021.

The 20-year-old made his competitive debut in January 2021 with eRa Eternity, with who he attended Valorant 5v5 Brazil – January: Qualifier #1 and #2, before leaving the team to compete with various stacks. He made a short appearance for Keyd Stars in May 2021, when he helped the team win Chroma Cup #5, before continuing his nomadic ways, competing with several squads.

Notably, RgLM also placed top-four at Chroma Cup #6 with KING OF SELVA, and won Ultimasters AOC #2 with Predestinados. This would also mark his last notable tournament run for the rest of the year.

In the latter half of 2021, RgLM has attended three tournaments, including two Chroma Cup, but never finished better than the fifth-eighth. But despite his lack of tournament titles, RgLM has proven his worth with incredible performances, which earned him a contract with INGAMING Esports for the 2022 season.

With INGAMING Esports, RgLM made his professional debut in January 2022, when his team attended VCT 2022: Brazil Stage 1 Challengers Closed Qualifier 1 and finished fifth-eight. But RgLM and his crew bounced back in the second closed qualifiers, winning the event and qualifying for VCT 2022: Brazil Stage 1 Challengers.

In his first VCT event, RgLM and INGAMING Esports could only manage a seventh-eighth finish before adding a title from Chroma Cup #13 and a successful run through VCT 2022: Brazil Stage 1 Relegation.

Unfortunately, INGAMING Esports released its roster due to financial problems in May, with RgLM joining Keyd Stars and the rest of the team forming Stars Horizon.

Big Addition For MiBR

RgLM has yet to win any notable events in his career, but he has shown incredible talent and was a key player for Keyd Stars, who he was a part of since May. With Keyd Stars, RgLM placed third in VCT 2022: Brazil Stage 2 Challengers and nearly qualified for VALORANT Champions.

However, the team’s dream of competing in the season-culminating event came crashing down in August when they crashed out of VCT 2022: South America Last Chance Qualifier in fourth place. Keyd Stars enjoyed a solid start in the qualifiers but lost to the eventual champions KRU Esports and TBK Esports, who defeated them in the lower-bracket semi-finals.

By joining MiBR, RgLM will have a solid squad around him, with whom he should achieve new heights of his relatively short Valorant career. It’s unclear whether Keyd and MiBR will reach an agreement on the transfer, but considering that Keyd haven’t secured a spot in the Americas league, it seems likely that RgLM wants to leave and joins MiBR, who have until October 15 to submit at least three players for the 2023 season.
