Major winning Brazilian CS:GO coach Zews suffers cardiac arrest
One of the most celebrated and renowned CS:GO coaches in the world, zews, survived a heart attack yesterday and is currently undergoing recovery.
He is one of the most legendary coaches in the competitive scene especially in Brazil, as he helped both the Luminosity Gaming and SK Gaming lineups from the country win back-to-back Majors six years ago in 2016.
Establishing himself as a household name within Brazil, zews decided to go international as he joined the North American organization Team Liquid towards the end of 2016.
Two years later he came back to his home country and worked with the likes of Yeah Gaming and MIBR, before joining Evil Geniuses for what was to become his last stint as a coach till date.
Since having left EG in August 2021, zews has not been associated with CS:GO directly, at least not in the capacity of a coach.
Further during an interview with the 'esports historian' Duncan "Thorin" Shield in October 2021, zews confirmed that he was not too keen on coaching (CS:GO and Valorant) and was instead shifting his focus towards content creation.
I'm going down the content creation (path) and giving back to the community. I do believe in my project and I do believe I can use my skillset to do good here.Wilton "zews" Prado - Interview with Duncan "Thorin" Shield
The outpour of support zews received from the CS:GO community was overwhelming as players, talents, fans, and teams gave him their best wishes.
Zews is currently working on a completely different project which is related to NFT (Non-Fungible Token) under the brand Flare MC. It remains to be seen if he truly never returns to coaching in CS:GO or Valorant and stays committed to his path.
