"This is what is best for the team"
It doesn't come by surprise that Chaos will be swapping a few players before the next round of the DPC starts. Their best result with the organization was finishing in 7th-8th place at ESL One Katowice 2019.
Two Brazilian players will leave the team. Otávio 'tavo' Gabriel and Danylo 'KINGRD' Nascimento, the two original members of the South American squad have to search for a new team.
Chaos' General Manager explains that the team decided that "this is what is best for the team" in a statement video. All members agreed on the decision. He also describes the position of Chaos in South America and the problems of selling merch in that region. The only South American player that will stay with the team is William 'hFnk3' Medeiros.
The Manager confirms that the team will move to Europe to compete in the toughest of all regions.
A new Brazilian super team?
Meanwhile, one Brazilian squad is still fighting in the Lower Bracket of the Major: paiN Gaming faces Team Liquid today. Chances are high that the team will drop out of the tournament which is going to make a reunion possible.
tavo and KINGRD could rejoin their former organization to merge with the current team. This would imply that Rodrigo 'Lelis' Santos and Anderson '444 / Fourfourfour' Santos had to leave the squad based on their positions.
While I'm disappointed to see the boys kicked from Chaos, imagine how baller it would be if they managed to get an amazing stack together, qualify for TI, and place higher than any SA team has ever done before. What an amazing storyline that would be 😍🤩— Moxxi (@MoxxiCasts) 8. Mai 2019
Do you think a new paiN squad would have better chances at TI9?
