MIBR will see its coach and manager bid farewell to Raphael “cogu” Camargo. With cogu’s exit, MIBR is left with no coach and only two active players on its payroll.
cogu assumed MIBR’s coach office in October when the organization was going through various adjustments. The Brazillian organization acquired cogu following the coaching controversy that saw Ricardo “dead” Sinigaglia suspended from the team. The coach had a new roster on his hands as MIBR was filling up the slots left by veteran players with relatively fresh talent.
Brazillian giant MIBR lost most of its players ahead of the BLAST Premier Fall Series. The organization took the decision to drop Fernando “fer” Alvarenga and Epitácio “TACO” de Melo during the latter half of the year. Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo decided to stick with the duo and requested the organization to bench him. With the core exiting the roster, MIBR was unable to compete in tournaments.
cogu helped the organization gain composure with a new lineup featuring Vinicius “v$m” Moreira and Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles. After a poor start in BLAST Premier Fall Series, the roster shone brightly in Flashpoint 2 in securing the fourth spot. The new lineup under cogu had just started to gain some ground, but the coach won’t continue his journey with MIBR as his short contract come to an end.
The Brazillian coach seems to have his next steps all planned out. cogu has said that he has a roster prepared to play under an organization’s banner. The coach is now looking for a home for his stable project. The noticeable part of cogu’s project is that his team will extend to six players.
Today was my last day at MIBR. I would like to say that i will stay on CSGO and looking forward to compete on the high level again.
I have a stable and set project with 6 players, any org interested can get in touch with me.

cogu has plenty of experience, both as a coach and as a pro Counter-Strike player, under his belt. The veteran spent his earlier years in MIBR as a player and brought several titles home. Despite his excellent performance in leading a new roster to fourth spot in Flashpoint 2, the coach’s contract with MIBR won’t be renewed.
MIBR had a set of decent players fill in for the core three who are currently warming the bench. The prompt decision hints that the organization may have something better set out for the team. It’s yet to see how the organization will revive the iconic esports team of Brazil.
