2019 definitely presents to be an interesting scene for the 2019 Counter Strike: Global Offensive season, because after the big roster changes made by MiBR and Team Liquid, there is sure to be a more competitive landscape. In official breaking news, MIBR have announced that they have acquired Epitacio “TACO” de Melo and Wilton “zews” Prado from Liquid, with Jake “Stewie2K” Yip traded to the Team Liquid.
The new roster constructions will look as follows:-
Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo
Fernando “fer” Alvarenga
Marcelo “coldzera” David
Epitacio “TACO” de Melo
Tarik “tarik” Celik
Wilton “zews” Prado (coach)
Nick “nitr0” Cannella
Jonathan “EliGE” Jablonowski
Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken
Keith “NAF” Markovic
States Jake “Stewie2K” Yip
What the Future Holds
The future of MiBR coach, Janko “YNk” Paunović, who coached the squad for nearly five months after what was initially supposed to be a deal only until the FACEIT Major, is currently unknown, but, will surely be a welcomed addition back to any analyst desk. Because of his recent efforts with the squad, he won’t be a free agent for long.
Another current unknown is the future of Tarik “tarik” Celik. It is expected he will not return as part of the lineup for 2019. João “felps” Vasconcellos, who has experience playing with the remaining four players for the majority of 2017 and won five international tournaments with them, is currently the leading candidate for his replacement. Although nothing is yet confirmed.
In a video announcement, Liquid’s founder and co-CEO, Victor “Nazgul” Goossens, made it known that, because of the trade involving Wilton “Zews” Prado, the organization is reviewing a number of options to fill the coaching role. I would think that Janko “YNk” Paunović must be considered to be a contender for that role as well considering the improvements that he made with MiBR in a short period of time. You would think that after his time with MiBR, that Janki ‘YNk” Paunović will have multiple offers waiting for him.
