FalleN's longtime friend is set to be replaced

Imperial to replace fer

The Brazilian organization is set to remove the double-major winner after a lackluster end to the year.

Imperial has elected to make a massive change by moving on from the two-time Major winner Fernando "fer" Alvarenga, according to Dust2 Brasil. This comes after much speculation regarding the player's future career in esports after hypothsizing that he would retire sometime soon. To replace fer, Imperial has once again tapped MIBR to replace their outgoing player with Jhonatan "JOTA" Willian, the captain of MIBR, as the replacement.

Dust2 Brasil does not know whether fer will use this as the cue for his retirement or if it will just be another break. Imperial is certainly planning their future without Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's compatriot as the negotiations between Imperial and MIBR are already advanced for JOTA. All signs point to the deal being finalized soon, however the holidays might come in the way of the actual closing date.

Imperial declined to comment to Dust2 Brasil, however MIBR issued the following statement;

"We received proposals for some players, but nothing has been finalized yet. All of the main CS:GO lineup remain under contract with us at the moment"

While JOTA is the man Imperial is settling on, it is not the only name that has come up in seeking a replacement. Henrique "t9rnay" Menacho was allegedly someone else that the Brazilian organization sought, but decided against.

JOTA will be no stranger to this lineup being a long-time teammate of Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes and Ricardo "boltz" Prass on MIBR where they terrorized the North American scene with their dominant performances. JOTA is also a longtime favorite of FalleN's team where he was first linked to the organization back in August to replace fer.

MIBR will now begin their search for a replacement, but finding a suitable replacement will be difficult for the squad that just won NA ECL Season 43 and earned a spot at ESL Pro League Conference 17.

If the deal goes through, the teams would look like this:


  • Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo

  • Brazil Vinicius "VINI" Figueiredo

  • Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass

  • Brazil Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes

  • Brazil lJhonatan "JOTA" Willian

  • Brazil Lincoln "fnx" Lau (Coach)

  • Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga (inactive)


  • Brazil Raphael "exit" Lacerda

  • Brazil Matheus "Tuurtle" Anhaia

  • Brazil Breno "brnz4n" Poletto

  • Brazil Henrique "HEN1" Teles

  • Brazil Bruno "bit" Lima (coach)
