The report further states that Tarik "tarik" Celik has been benched from MIBR and is actively looking for a new home as the team is looking to return to a fully Brazilian lineup. Per Rush B Media reporter Ryan, tarik will play for the team until a replacement player is found.

This move also sees zews replace Janko "YNk" Paunović as head coach, with the Serbian being set to leave the organization.
