ImageMandic has announced its new Brazilian lineup and it is the ex-FireGamers/coL.br lineup.

Mandic has announced the lineup of its new Counter-Strike team and it is made up of the former BR FireGaming/coL.br lineup. The announcement of the lineup was made on midnight of the 21st. There were eight players in total to be voted for by the public with btt, prd and spacca ending up as the players eventually left out of the new lineup.

The project is run by BR Paulo Velloso, MiBR CEO, and ex-g3x player BR Alexandre 'gAuLeS' Chiqueta, the latter being the one who selected the lineup after public voting had ended. The team apparently has a budget of $29,000, thanks in part to the support of a well known peripheral manufacturer.

There will be a monthly budget of 8,000 Brazilian reals, equivalent to ~$4,600. Contracts will run until the end of the year, when the organisation will decide which direction to go in. The team will apparently attend international events and train outside of Brazil, akin to what MiBR was able to do during their best years.

BR Bruno 'ellllll' Ono
BR Gabriel 'FalleN' Toledo
BR Lincoln 'fnx' Lau
BR Renato 'nak' Nakano

When this lineup was known as FireGamers/coL.br they were able to win the IEM V American Championship, defeating US EG in the final, and place 5-6th at the IEM V World Championship, thrashing DK mTw 16:3 on nuke in the last game of their group.
