UPDATE (Nov. 13): S3xycake and Muringa will not play for TrapBoyz during SI Qualifiers

The Brazilian team TrapBoyz has announced the departures of its most recent additions, Thiago “xS3xyCake” Reis and João “Hsnamuringa” Deam. The Team Liquid duo aimed to play the SI 2022 LATAM Qualifiers under the Challenger League roster, but have been barred from that due to a competitive ruling.

“Due to a problem with the competitive R6S global rules, we are sorry to announce that both xS3xyCake and Hsnamuringa aren’t able to participate at the SI 2022 qualifiers. 

We would like to clarify that all parties involved (TBZ, Team Liquid and Ubisoft) looked for solutions, however, with no luck. 

We would like to thank the understanding and the help of all parties involved, and we are thankful of the support that we receive from our fans. We hope to count on you!”



Following their departures from Team Liquid, Thiago “xS3xyCake” Reis and João “Hsnamuringa” Deam have joined the Brazilian Challenger League team TrapBoyz for the Six Invitational 2022 qualifying tournament after the departures of Raphael “TradyZ” Quites and Matheus “KingSt4r” Filipe. 

Despite being an unknown roster for international viewers, TrapBoyz are a big deal in Brazil’s second tier. The current core Caio “Cainho” Cesar and Lucas Barth were part of Imperium e-Sports, which made it to the Grand Final of the Copa do Brasil Stage 2 after defeating top-flight roster W7M Gaming. 

TrapBoyz’s last appearance was in Brazil’s Challenger League, finishing among the best four rosters in the competition. However, the team’s hopes of making it to the Brasileirão faded away after their 0-2 defeat against Guidance Gaming. 

Now, the team aims for a SI 2022 qualification with the addition of xS3xyCake and Hsnamuringa. The LATAM qualifiers will include some of the best teams in the region, including MIBR or Black Dragons in Brazil, the Mexican champions Atheris Esports or the most recent South American surprise, Malvinas Gaming.
