Peacemaker has released a statement about his health and his future plans on MiBR. The veteran coach who has been part of several strong teams has been suffering from various health issues.
You can read his full statement below:
1 – Heroic
It was 4 months after leaving the Heroic, where I spent 7 months as a coach, and first I will make a brief summary of the journey:
Part of the initial objective of the project was completed, in this period, we qualified for some big championships where unfortunately we got such impressive results, but we were evolving a lot as a team and acquiring pace of travel / championships in LAN / experience / dealing with defeats and etc.
We went from the top 20 to the top 11 of hltv.org in a short time, and over a period, I think we were the second best team in Denmark.
Unfortunately we had some casualties in the team from February to May, which directly affected our plans and objectives for the first half of 2018, we even see that even today the Heroic is still undergoing a period of changes and I believe that once they can fit a lineup and training, will again be a very competitive team.
When a team begins to evolve and “rise” in the ranking, more invitations to tournaments, trips, appointments and responsibilities automatically start to appear. And as previously announced, on May 01 we opted to close my contract because he had some health problems, which besides not being able to keep up with the agenda of events and appointments, the team was undergoing a major restructuring and we thought it would be better for both parties at that time.
2 – Health
Although the RFRSH and Heroic provided me with full support and assistance while I was in Denmark, my main goal was to return to Brazil and count on my family’s help, as well as start investigating what was happening to me (I felt dizzy and abdominal, heartburn every day after eating, anyway … a constant bad-being).
As soon as I arrived in Brazil, I performed several exams and among some of the doctors I passed, one of them committed a mistake that not only scared me but also delayed my recovery process. After a minor alteration in an electrocardiogram exam, he wanted to admit me and to observe it because I thought I might even have a heart attack, this obviously caused me a panic, since I am neither old nor inclined to this and always I was very healthy (I had never had any health problems). Well, after more investigations and other doctors, and new electrocardiograms, I discovered that the problem I was in (besides the panic and the fright that the first doctor caused me) was a gastritis crisis and also a food infection, which caused several reactions in my body in general,
Since the discovery of everything, it has certainly given me a warning about taking better care of my health and my mind, for I confess that I am a person very focused on my goals, and I ended up leaving a little on that side during the time I was away.
In short, today I am much better, I lost a little weight and I am slowly changing some habits and customs so that neither my body nor my mind feel such a sudden change, I feel much better and close to 100%.
3 – MiBR
During those months away, of course I continued to follow the championships and the teams, updating myself as much as possible and cheering for the teams I like, among them MiBR (impossible for a Brazilian to stop cheering for the best national team, especially in my in which case I have friends and people who have helped me a lot in my career with advice and sharing ideas). As soon as I learned that they were looking for a coach, of course I was expecting it to happen, but always with my feet on the ground.
Difficult for me from outside, to talk about what is lacking in the MiBR or what they have to do to become the best team in the world, of course I felt and I feel totally capable of helping them, but I believe that the question is never it was only “to have or not to have a Coach”,
Yesterday, I saw an interview from FalleN to the DRIFT GG site talking about it, and I made a point of first thanking him privately, but I also want to make public my affection, respect and honor in having been considered, as well as receiving compliments from probably one of the people that I admire most in CS and that deserves all the success that it has. Congratulations on the strong decision to put the YNK and real support so that they achieve all their goals, because they are deserving.
4 – Future Plans
During these 4 months, I received some surveys and invitations, but I did not think it would be time to return. Working with CS is the great passion of my life, and this time away has made me reflect on all the knowledge that I have acquired during those years in the Brazilian, American, European and Asian scene. This is an incredible baggage with lots of information that I was not having much time to manage and now I’ve been able to organize and pick up the best part of every team I’ve been on.
Although I want to compete again soon, I do not want to make any mistakes in my next choice, but my focus is to be back in the competitive landscape soon.
I apologize for stretching, but I feel I needed that space and to explain a little of what happened to me at this time.
I thank you again for your affection and respect for those who cheer for me and I hope to see you soon.
Thank you so much!
