The 26-year-old AWPer who has previously played for organizations like Immortals, 100 Thieves, and INTZ will be making a big jump to MIBR. With an overall HLTV rating of 1.10 and leading INTZ to their first-ever Major, kNgV- has a lot of experience while being one of the best Brazilian players out there.
The player does have a bit of a shaky past, with the fallout that he had on Twitter with Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields and getting caught for playing with Immortals on a tourist VISA, but two years since then and now he holds a US P-1 visa, which is a special visa exclusively for athletes.
kNgV- posted on TwitLonger to celebrate his signing. He talks about his past, the mistakes he has made, the success that has come his way and his growth both personal and professional. He goes on to say,
“I'd like to thank INTZ, for putting their trust in me when no one else did. For that, I'll always be grateful, and I want to thank my teammates as well, for all the happy moments, victories, losses and experiences we shared together.”
He shares his feelings about playing with MIBR,
“Today, I am pleased and proud to announce I am MIBR!
Today I become part of a great team and probably the most popular one in the whole world, with a long history and with players who probably and literally won everything in CS: GO. I am very excited for this new phase in my life and I will give my best to be the difference they needed for better results.”
kNgV- along with a new MIBR line-up will be seen in action for the first time at the upcoming BLAST Pro Series Moscow which is scheduled to take place from 13-14 September.
MIBR’s current line-up is as follows,
Gabriel ‘FalleN’ Toledo
Fernando ‘fer’ Alvarenga
Epitacio ‘TACO’ de Melo
Lucas ‘LUCAS1’ Teles [Loan]
Vito ‘kNgV-’ Giuseppe
Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David [Benched]
Joao ‘felps’ Vasconcellos [Loaned Out]
