MIBR has parted ways with Wilton "zews" Prado as its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive coach. The move goes into effect immediately as zews shared his feelings on the matter Wednesday night.
Zews rejoined the MIBR roster back in December 2018 as part of a transfer agreement with Team Liquid. The move also included Jake "Stewie2K" Yip and Epitacio "TACO" de Melo, where Stewie2K joined TL and TACO went with zews to MIBR.
While the move worked out well for Team Liquid who won five titles in a row and the second season of the Intel Grand Slam, MIBR never found its footing. The team failed event after event and placed 3-4th at IEM Katowice 2019 for its highest placing.
That's where zews statement comes into place as he explained in Portuguese the reasoning for the dismissal.
"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. "he 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/or to its culture," zews explained. "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."
