One of the best Brazilian teams in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, MIBR will compete in another tournament in 2019. The team was invited to the BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles, a competition that will take place between 12 and 13 June in the American city. The Brazilian side is the third of the six teams that will compete in the tournament: Team Liquid and FaZe Clan have confirmed their participation. Further details of the event are yet to be announced. Yet we are quite confident that the format of the competition will the same as that of the previous three editions in 2019.

The event in Los Angeles will distribute $ 250,000 in prizes. It will be the fourth of the BLAST Pro Series in 2019. So far, MIBR has competed in two editions, São Paulo and Miami. The team didn’t manage to win a single in the event in Brazil and was ranked at third place in the United States.

Next week, BLAST arrives in Madrid, Spain, but without the presence of MIBR. The tournament will be contested by Astralis, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Cloud9, ENCE and the team that wins the Spanish qualifiers. The competition will kick off this weekend on 10th and 11th May.

On a side note, the Godfather of CS:GO, and the in-game leader of MIBR, Gabriel FalleN Toledo was awarded a trophy. A few hours ago the veteran received a gold YouTube button after gaining a million subscribers on his channel.

A controversial bug pops up in CS:GO

A GitHub user found a bug in the Panorama UI interface, which allows you to run prohibited programs in normal and competitive CS: GO modes. Former professional player Craig onscreen Shannon, who now represents G2 Esports in Apex Legends, drew attention to this controversial feature.

Shannon used the example of a hack with which you can see an opponent through textures in normal and competitive modes without running the sv_cheats console command. The player did not specify whether VAC detects this exploit.

in CS: GO for matches with bots, there are functions that allow you to install unlimited ammunition, track grenade trajectories and see opponents through the walls. They can be activated using the sv_cheats console command. Valve has not yet responded to the issue.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was made free to play on December 7, 2018. The free version includes all the features of the game, except for prime matchmaking. The players can enter it after reaching level 21 or by purchasing a paid edition in the Steam store.
