This weekend, the Brasileirao’s second week took place. Black Dragons and Team oNe went into it in first and second place, while Team Liquid and Ninjas in Pyjamas already had pressure on them to perform better.

This weekend's scores



Play of the weekend: Jv92 1v1 

Joao “Jv92” Vitor came up big for his team in w7m esports’ game against Team Liquid. The 19-year-old got a SiegeGG rating of 1.60 after finishing with a K-D of 15-7 (+8) and an entry split of 3-2 (+1). 

He clutched the final round of the match after his teammate Julio “JULIO” Giacomelli planted the defuser, protecting it from Lorenzo “Lagonis” Volpi to secure three important points.

Player of the weekend: FelipoX

Felipe “FelipoX” de Lucia had an outstanding weekend once more and was crucial for his team, averaging a SiegeGG Rating of 1.39. His performances skyrocketed him to second in the individual standings for the third stage, with an overall SiegeGG Rating of 1.30.

Surprise of the week: MIBR

Following victories against current stage leaders Black Dragons and overall best Brasileirao team w7m esports, MIBR were the best team of the weekend.

The back-to-back top-four finishers at the Six Invitational won both games by 7-3 scores, winning six of their eight attacks. 

They have now climbed up to third place and are on the right track for what would be the organization’s first Six Major appearance since the Raleigh Major.

Top moments of the weekend

Here are the most important events and storylines of the weekend in the Brasileirao:

MIBR defeat w7m esports after back-to-back 1v1s

Heading to the attacking side with a 4-2 lead, MIBR had the upper hand. However, despite the bans of Wamai and Smoke, defenders usually find it easier to convert rounds on Oregon. 

Nevertheless, MIBR won 7-3 thanks to two back-to-back 1v1 clutches from Luca “LuKid” Sereno and Felipe “FelipoX” de Lucia. In the former, Julio “JULIO” Giacomelli’s attempt of clutching a 1v3 was cut short by LuKid. Minutes later, Gustavo “HerdsZ” Herdina killed four MIBR members, including FelipoX, but couldn’t disable the defuser in time.

Levy dooms Ninjas in Pyjamas after sublime performance

Ninjas in Pyjamas’ second weekend of the stage was an important one for their Stage 3 future, as they faced the two weakest rosters in the competition – 00 Nation and TropiCaos.

But the tables turned as 00 Nation got their first regulation victory of the stage with a 7-3 victory over the former world champions. Juliano “Levy” Andrade’s performance left many viewers speechless, as he finished with a SiegeGG Rating of 1.59.

The following day, Ninjas in Pyjamas were pushed to maximum overtime by TropiCaos, but this time avoided embarrassment by taking the victory. Overall, NiP only secured two out of six points against the bottom-two in the standings and are now three points behind the top four.

AsK, the answer to Liquid’s problems

Gabriel “AsK” Santos had the best single-match performance of the entire stage against TropiCaos with 15 kills in just nine rounds, four entry kills, a perfect KOST, and an spectacular SiegeGG Rating of 2.12.

Liquid’s former support and hard breacher has changed roles with the signing of Lorenzo “Lagonis” Volpi, which meant that AsK was mainly seen with Ash, Twitch, and Nokk on attack and Castle, Smoke, and Mute on defense.

So far, since the signing of Lagonis, AsK has shown some vital flexibility while adapting to different roles and operators. His performance against TropiCaos saw him climb up to the top of the individual standings, with an overall SiegeGG Rating of 1.33.

R4re goes 0-6 vs 00 Nation, but increases plant tally

FURIA Esports’ first regulation victory of the stage came on Sunday against 00 Nation, with Diogo “Fntzy” Lima and Willian “Stk” da Costa registering almost identical numbers, after matching K-D, KOST, KPR, and SRV. 

However, the team’s support and hard breacher Rennan “R4re” Vitor had a dreadful performance in terms of kills and entries, as he finished with a K-D of 0-6 and an entry balance of 0-2. R4re’s job was somewhere else, though -- despite his rating of 0.51, he completed two plants to bring his tally up to six in total.

This was also FURIA’s first victory of the stage after three maximum overtime losses, with the team currently in sixth place with six points.

TropiCaos are on a full stage-losing streak

Combining the results for INTZ and the performances so far under their new banner, the  TropiCaos players have now lost their last 10 Brasileirao matches. The team’s last victory in the region’s top-flight dates back to June 25, as they took down Team Liquid 7-3.

These have been the results since for the former INTZ roster:

  • Ninjas in Pyjamas 8-7 INTZ
  • INTZ 4-7 00 Nation
  • MIBR 7-3 INTZ
  • INTZ 3-7 FaZe Clan
  • INTZ 1-7 FURIA Esports
  • w7m esports 7-3 INTZ
  • Black Dragons 7-4 TropiCaos
  • Team oNe 7-5 TropiCaos
  • TropiCaos 2-7 Team Liquid
  • TropiCaos 7-8 Ninjas in Pyjamas

Black Dragons lead the standings after three regulation victory start

For the second stage in a row, Black Dragons head into the third weekend of the Brasileirao in first place. They currently have nine points to their name, one less than what they had by now in the second split of the season. Then, the team eventually finished outside of the top four.

FaZe Clan, MIBR, and Team oNe complete the top four right now and if things end as they are now, Team Liquid and Ninjas in Pyjamas will remain outside of the Global Standings’ Top 16 for SI 2023.
