New team announced: HITBOX e-Sports

HITBOX

The Brazilian scene just got a new team: HITBOX e-Sports. But don’t think that they all are newcomers to the scene, the team counts with some known players like Skybart (played for Team 58ers), esA (played for Seven Wars) and Draek (played for CNB).

The team also start with some polemics. esA was banned for elojob, Draek was banned for using hack and Metal is known for trolling. I hope they use this opportunity to show that people can change for better.

The new members come to fill the space left by Leko, Revoltan and takeshi. The reinforcements are Arlindo “element” Neto (top), Diogo “Shini” Rogê (jungle) and Lucas “Electro” Dal Prá (mid). “As we’re not viewing a result in a short time, we searched for the possibility of a good teamwork and a malleable play style, things that are hard to improve, but they are very effective when done well“, said Leonardo “Alocs” Belo, support of the team. Alocs also said that they aren’t thinking about the tournaments that are happening this year, they want to get ready for the next season of the Brazilian Regional.

Electro, that used Electrocret as nickname, he have 19 years old and started playing LoL in 2011 too and started playing competitively in 2013, when he played for voiD and CG Shield.

Shini have 17 years old and was a sub for Keyd Stars and decided to accept the invite from CNB, where he’ll get the chance to play, this time as a jungler, role that he played for semXorah. He said: “I know that it’s gonna be tough in the beginning, since CNB is going through a lot of reformulations, but I believe in the capacity from my teammates. In time, we have everything necessary to fight for the first place, that is our objective“. He won’t be moving to the Gaming House because he’s finishing high school.

CNB, paiN and Keyd Change Their Rosters

Today was a busy day for the Brazilian scene. Some of the teams that were at the Brazilian Regional decided to utilize the time without big tournaments and change their roster.

CNB e-Sports Club

CNB

Kalec, Leko, manajj, takeshi, Revolta and Alocs

CNB decided to release Whesley “Leko” Holler, Gabriel “Revolta” Henud and Murilo “Takeshi” Alves.

During this year and half, me, Alocs, Leko and mana, mainly, we went through for a lot of stuff together, between defeats and victories. Always in defeat, we had strength to rebuild ourselves. But, this time, I don’t feel this is I what I want. I want to god to different places and learn with this new experience. I’m thankful to Cleber and Júnior (directors of CNB) for their trust that they put in me. I wanna make clear that this time that I spent with these guys was one of the best times of my life. I cheer for Leko, manajj, Alocs and Kalec. I hope everything goes well from now on“, said Takeshi.

Revolta also commented about he leaving: “I received a proposal to join another team and, with the problems that the team had, I decided to listen myself deeply and think about joining another team with Takeshi. I wanna say thanks to CNB for this opportunity of playing along with extraordinary people and for accepting me so well, as well as for the fans, that received me super well“.

For last, Leko also said about he quitting the team: “I’m leaving searching for new opportunities. I wanna challenge myself. I trailed a history of overcoming with CNB. I’m proud of everything I did, and this wasn’t alone. I had help from my teammates and organization. I feel pride to talk about each one. But the time has come that I wish to do some changes. I just wanna say thanks to everyone. I’ll write something more in a more opportunely hour.”

Takeshi and Leko were in the team since April from 2013, when the team got roster from Nex Impetus. Revolta was in the team since February from this year. With this team, CNB won the Desafio Internacional de São Paulo in October from last year, three editions of Torneio dos Legends, besides the second place in BLG Arena #1 and #2, Selecter Cup and CBLoL 2013 and 2014.

paiN Gaming

PNG

owN: “thank you”. Leko: “welcome”

Following all the roster changes, paiN Gaming decided to pick up Leko and release Marcelo “owN” Shiwa.

The team was feeling that the communication in the bot lane, formed by owN and Kim “Olleh” Joo-sung, wasn’t good enough, since one is from Brazil and the other is from South Korea.  The solution to this was to release their AD, move Lactea from top to AD, his old role, and hire Leko to be the new top laner.

Lactea and Olleh, together with Shadow and ReSEt, from Team 58ers, are the only Koreans remaining in the BR competitive scene.

CBLoL – Keyd Punished

Mylon

Matheys “Mylon” Borges

The team Keyd Stars was punished yesterday (Jun 8th) because of a bad gesture made by their top laner Matheus “Mylon” Borges.

During their second game in the finals against paiN Gaming, Mylon won a 1v1 against Lactea, top laner of PNG, and screamed and gave the middle finger right in the camera, as you can see here. The case even got to the front page of /r/leagueoflegends.

Riot Games decided to punish him and his team because of his action. Keyd Stars will lose one ban in their next two matches in an official tournament made by Riot. This means that they’ll only be able to ban two champions in their quarter-final games at the Brazilian Regional and in their next game, in the Regional or not. See the official statement made by Riot Bagaço, Player Engagement Senior Manager, at Reddit:

During the Brazilian League finals, the player Mylon had attitudes that went against the tournament regulation: he performed an obscene gesture to the camera and, in a second moment, said offensive terms.

Based on tournament rules, our regulatory council decided: 1 – Perform verbal warning (as 10.5.1 item); 2 – Loss of one ban per match, in their next two series in official Riot competitions (as 10.5.3).

That means that Keyd will have one less ban in each of their matches during the Bo3 quarter-finals for the Brazilian Regionals (July 18, 19 and 20, 2014). The same will apply for the team’s next series, be it during Regionals Bo3 semifinals (if they qualify) or Riot’s next official tournament.

We don’t accept improper behavior in the competitive scene or in any other instance where League of Legends is played. This kind of attitude will always be thouroughly reviewed and punished accordingly.

In case of repetition of the same behavior in the competitive scene, more severe actions will be taken.

Mylon asked for apologize and said that “acts like that can only prejudice the game environment“. See what he said on his fan page at Facebook:

Today during one of the final games of the Série dos Campeões, in a certain moment of the game, I did a gesture that is at least despicable and I’m really sorry for having done that. “Solo killing your enemy” and shouting trashy things are behaviors that I’ve always condemned and seeing myself behaving like that for pure emotion absolutely disappointed myself.

I apologize to my coworkers, especially Lactea, and to the League of Legends community as a whole. Acts like that can only prejudice the game environment, giving an example of a player that no one wants to deal with in their games.

Thanks a lot for all of those who support me, I promise I won’t repeat such disrespectful behavior, and once more I apologize.

Props to him for acknowledging his mistakes.

The Regional Playoffs will start next month, July 18th, 19th and 20th, in São Paulo with the Finals happening July 26th in Rio de Janeiro.
