MIBR will not attend DreamHack Rio de Janeiro due to scheduling issues, player Epitácio "TACO" de Melo wrote Monday on Twitter.


The team did remind fans that MIBR would be attending BLAST Pro Series: São Paulo 2019.

It's unknown which event is getting in the way as the next closest is IEM Syndey on April 30. But other factors, such as bootcamps or other media obligations, could be the reason for the decision.


MIBR's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster has gone through some heavy changes in 2018 with the addition of Jake "Stewie2K" Yip and Tarik "tarik" Celik before that abrutly changed in December. 


TACO and Wilton "zews" Prado have both returned to MIBR in hopes of finding their old glory. The team then reacquired João "felps" Vasconcellos.
