A shot to the heart for G2 and their fans as MIBR does the unthinkable. Playing with a new addition and their coach, MIBR took down the Frenchmen in a best-of-three and it looked convincing for the most part.
Wilton “zews” Prado showed he’s not to be written off stepping in and Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles showed Richard “shox” Papillon and company just why MIBR chose him. The newest member of the Brazilian lineup averaged a server-leading 96.2 average damage per round across the series.
While zews was the only player on MIBR to post a negative kill-to-death ratio, he had some important frags and rounds that helped keep the Brazilian side in the drivers seat.
It would be unfair to leave out Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo who put up a +20 k/d ratio and got the necessary picks almost every time they were needed. The veteran showed he’s not anywhere close to finished and doesn’t look to have dropped off at all.
G2 on the other hand were a disappointing bunch throughout the series. ucas “Lucky” Chastang finished with a combined -24 k/d and the teams two superstars didn’t impress either as both shox and Kenny “kennyS” Schrub went negative in the match up. Without their star players, G2 has very little to fall back on and it was apparent in Chicago.
MIBR will face the Finns of ENCE tomorrow in the semifinals of IEM Chicago at the United center.
