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 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.
Keyd decided to release Park “Winged” Tae-jin and An “SuNo” Sun-ho, both Koreans in their team. To replace them, the team hired Takeshi and Revolta.
The organization said that them and SuNo and Winged decided to rescind their contracts, for different reasons coming from both sides. Takeshi and Revolta, that leaved CNB, are already in the Gaming House and you can see them getting there in this video.
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.
Now we’re waiting for the new roster for CNB and to see if there’s any new change in the Brazilian scene.
