Brazilian Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team MiBR promoted Breno “brnz4n” Poletto to the main lineup. The 18-year-old will replace Adriano “WOOD7” Cerato, who got benched on Tuesday.

Seeking Better Results

MiBR decided to freshen up its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster this week in a bid to find more success in the second part of the 2022 season. Although the squad achieved reasonable success in the year, MiBR did not reach its goals.

The Brazilian squad kicked off the season with a seventh-eighth place finish at BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2022, adding another early elimination from IEM Katowice, where MiBR did not make it past the first round of the Play-in stage.

In the first open PGL Major Antwerp American RMR qualifiers, MiBR again disappointed with a ninth-16th-place finish, but they turned things around shortly after.

Suddenly finding their stride, MiBR crushed it in the second RMR qualifiers, which they won with relative ease. By the end of March, the Brazilians also claimed a silver medal from ESEA Cash Cup: North America – Winter 2022 #6 and a title from Spring 2022 #1.

The good form continued in April, when MiBR won ESL Challenger League Season 40: North America and finished second in the American RMR, behind only FURIA, qualifying for the Major. And by the end of the month, MIBR also finished runners-up in IEM Dallas qualifiers and placed top-four at BLAST Premier: Spring American Showdown 2022.

Unfortunately, despite their success in some lesser events, MiBR fell apart at the PGL Major Antwerp. After going 2-2 in the Challengers Stage, MiBR lost their final match against Bad News Eagles and missed out on the Legends Stage.

As a result, MiBR finished the Major in 17th-19th place, which ushered in roster changes, which the Brazilian esports organization hope will help elevate their game and emerge as one of the top teams in the world.

MiBR Make Roster Changes

The squad’s roster rebuild started last Thursday when MiBR announced the benching of WOOD7. Now, just a few days later, MiBR also unveiled his replacement – an 18-year-old brnz4n.

Brnz4n has been officially added to the main lineup on Thursday as a former player of MiBR Academy. The youngster has earned his spot on the main roster as a standout player in the academy team, averaging an incredible 1.25 rating across the past three months.

While the addition of brnz4n makes a lot of sense, some questions need to be answered.

WOOD7 was not only MiBR’s AWPer but also the in-game leader, which begs the question of who will take over the IGL role. However, MiBR have already shed some light on the situation, stating that the IGL duties will now fall into the hands of Marcelo “chelo” Cespedes.

Interestingly, brnz4n has never before played as the primary AWPer, yet he was entrusted with the Big Green in MiBR’s lineup. How will that play out remains to be seen, but in an official statement, MiBR stated that the team is confident in the future with brnz4n.

With a new-look lineup, MiBR will look to keep their wheels spinning following a streak of solid results leading up to the Major. The team has also not revealed any plans for future roster changes at the moment, a decision that makes sense.

MiBR are currently ranked no.21 in the world – the highest they’ve been since December 2020, when the Brazilian team fielded an entirely different squad. Having shown incredible progress over the last 12 months, MiBR’s future does seem bright.

They’re currently the third-highest rated team in South America, behind only Imperial and FURIA Esports, currently the world’s 18th and 11thhighest-rated CS:GO teams.
