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.
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
