Exclusive Interview: MIBR’s Marcelo "Coldzera" David - Tipify

Esports News – Team Made In Brazil (MIBR) made history by defeating Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP) in the recent New Legends Stage of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Let’s follow their journey through the eyes of Marcelo “coldzera” David, the Rifler and AWper of the team.

From losses to recovery: vs Tyloo and Astralis

Despite sailing high halfway through 2018, Made In Brazil had a tough season. They lost a handful top players in 2017, so they had to start from the scratch and get back on track before the New Legends Stage. Along the way, they faced Astralis and Tyloo. Here’s Coldzera’s personal accounts and recaps for the tournaments: “The Major is the nicest tournament to play, so the hardest tournament to play, as well, as everyone was super prepared. Our run was pretty good at the beginning, I think we felt a little bit of pressure against TYLOO, we were winning 11-4 and they made a comeback, so… the first day was really tough for us, it was really hard, too much pressure. But on the second and third day, we showed up pretty well. The game against Astralis… We studied them the day before we played against them, but at the same time, we tried to take so many risks, we didn’t play our style, we just tried to gamble with some strats, to anti-strat.”

Quarterfinals match-up: vs CompLexity

One of the most exciting battles of MIBR this year was their quarterfinals match-up against CompLexity. The two teams are not exactly rivals, but this is not the first time MIBR faced CompLexity in an international arena. When asked about his thoughts about the opponent, Coldzera answered: “CompLexity is a good team, they proved they’re a good team. They went 3-0, of course, so it’s going to be a fun game because we always play against them in the US, the players, not the team. They’re looking good, it’s going to be a good match to play on the stage. I don’t know too much about them, it’s a good team to study and a good team to prepare against because when you don’t know much about them, it’s hard to play against, so it’s a team we’re looking forward to studying some details.”

New Legends Stage: vs Ninjas and Pyjamas

Their match against Ninjas in Pyjamas secured them the slot for the Challengers Cup, one step away from the World Championship. Here’s Coldzera’s explanation on what happened during the game: On the CT side, they won the pistol and they won the first buy, so that broke us a little bit. After the sixth round as CT, we played really well, we started to build our economy. The round against the forcebuy was a little bit chaotic for me because they did the triple-smokes on site and I didn’t have too much info because a guy pushed sandwich, so when I killed this guy, I thought someone was pushing from the other side, so I swung and I flicked fast on FalleN. But the situation was really chaotic because one guy pushed and made the situation chaotic and we didn’t know what was happening.”

To the Playoffs and the World Championship

Looking back at all the matches MIBR had to face, it is evident that they are one of the strongest teams in the league. The next tournaments they have to overcome are the playoffs and the World Championship. Coldzera is pretty confident that his team can face whatever is waiting for them, he stated “we’re really confident at this tournament, we practiced really well. Except for the match against Astralis, that was a tough game for us, all the matches were good to play, we learned a lot on the road. Of course, the team is pretty new, but we already have one month, and this month, especially with Janko, he prepares really well. We’re getting the confidence, it’s going to be fun to play on this stage again, it’s going to be fun to play the Major and show everyone what we have.”
