HEN1 reportedly set to replace chelo in MIBR

Henrique “HEN1” Teles, a former member of GODSENT and a seasoned AWPer, is reportedly in line to replace Marcelo “chelo” Cespedes in the Brazilian team MIBR.

According to the reports by Dust2, HEN1 will join the Brazilian squad MIBR as a replacement for chelo, who is reportedly moving to Imperial Esports in a $200,000 buyout deal.

HEN1 coming to MIBR?

A renowned personality in the Brazilian CS:GO community, HEN1 has represented a number of illustrious esports teams, including Tempo Storms, Immortals, 100 Thieves, Luminosity Gaming, Furia Esports, 00Nation, and most recently team GODSENT.

The seasoned AWPer has won numerous CS:GO competitions throughout his distinguished career, including the DreamHack Open Summer 2016, NA DreamHack Masters Spring 2020, and the ESL Pro League North America Season 12 Finals. Despite his extensive list of achievements, HEN1 has been on the sidelines since GODSENT moved its core squad to 00Nation in June, releasing the AWPer from his contract barely three months after signing.

Nevertheless, if the reports are true, the veteran has finally found a new home and perhaps even more significantly, a second chance to restart his career. MIBR, on the other hand, will try to make up for the subpar results the squad have delivered over the past three months with the arrival of HEN1.

MIBR’s potential CS:GO roster: 

  • Raphael “⁠exit⁠” Lacerda
  • Matheus “⁠Tuurtle⁠” Anhaia
  • Jhonatan “⁠JOTA⁠” Willian
  • Breno “⁠brnz4n⁠” Poletto
  • Henrique “⁠HEN1⁠” Teles
  • Bruno “⁠BIT⁠” Fukuda Lima (coach)

Chelo is allegedly all set to join Imperial Esports

According to numerous reports that have appeared over the past week, the Major winning core may disintegrate as a result of the significant fall in their performance over the past two months. Dust2 has reported that Imperial Esports is close to signing a $200,000 buyout agreement with MIBR in order to acquire chelo. The 27-year-old AWPer was apparently the team’s top choice, even though other players like Lucas “Lucaozy” Neves and Jhonatan “JOTA” Willian were also on Imperial’s radar.

Due to his persistently subpar performance throughout the first season of 2022, Lincoln “fnx” Lau appears to be the player on the chopping block. The two-time Major champion has the lowest overall HLTV rating (0.90) of any Imperial Esports player at the time. Additionally, he is the only Imperial player on the squad with an overall HLTV rating below 1.0 and a K/D of 0.87. Although Imperial hasn’t officially confirmed either of the two changes, reports suggest that the changes would be put into effect right after the players’ break.
