zews leaves MIBR ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Brazilian esports organization, MIBR, has parted ways with its coach of 15-months, Wilton "zews" Prado. Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo revealed in a recent stream that zews has been replaced by Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia. 

zews joined the organization as part of a transfer deal with Team Liquid in which he and Epitacio "TACO" de Melo were traded for Jake "Stewie2K" Yip. While Stewie2K went on to help Team Liquid win five titles in a row, the addition of zews and TACO did not produce a similar effect for MIBR. Since joining the roster, the team has failed to win any major events.

In a statement posted on Twitter, zews explained that MIBR has very complicated and deep-rooted problems that require more complex solutions. He also wished them well but expressed his doubt in the team fixing its issues with the roster any time soon. zews also made sure to take his part of the blame regarding MIBR’s poor performance of late.

Wilton "zews" Prado

I'd like to say that I believe MIBR's problems are closer to getting solved, but unfortunately, I don't know if I believe that to be the case. The problems I found here are heavier, more complex and more deeply embedded than they seem to be, and in my opinion, the solutions tend to be more complex as well - requiring a bigger change to the roster and to its culture. I do not wish to give excuses or to create problems, I take my blame, but at the same time, I have to analyze the situation to be able to learn from it and to continue to evolve as a professional.

MIBR’s current roster consists of:

  • Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo

  • Fernando "fer" Alvarenga

  • Epitacio "TACO" de Melo

  • Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe

  • Ignacio "meyern" Meyer

  • Ricardo "dead" Sinigaglia (manager/coach)

Regarding his next move, zews said he would remain in the US while analyzing his options as he waits for the coronavirus pandemic to come under control. He also opened communications for any organization interested in picking him up.
