Marcelo "coldzera" David has reportedly thrown down the gauntlet to his team by requesting a benching, HLTV reported Sunday.

HLTV sources close to MIBR shared the information and revealed that coldzera was not happy with the performance and overall direction. He'll play at two more events, BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles and IEM Chicago, before he will step down.

The team has been floundering for over a year and it doesn't seem like the team can find an answer. Even the addition of Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles hasn't deterred coldzera's decision. This can go two ways, coldzera will find a new team after the Major since teams' rosters are locked already, or MIBR will make moves to make coldzera happy.

Either way, MIBR will have to play Wilton "zews" Prado at the Major if they can't figure this problem out since the roster has been locked.
