As the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2020 (PMGC 2020) final is coming closer, teams are looking to get things straight and start preparing for the million-dollar tournament.
Alpha 7 Esports, a team from Brazil who qualified for the PMGC 2020 Finals, announced on social media that Lucas "Carrilho" Miguel, a top fragger from the Americas region, has joined the organization.
Carrilho will replace Vitu2k, who recently won the fan-favorite player award from the Americas region in the PMGC 2020 League Stage.
Carrilho played the PMGC 2020 League Stages for Loops Esports, who secured the sixth place in the League Stages but was disqualified from the tournament for showing unsportsmanlike behavior.
Loops got disqualified under rule 6.1.2, which mentions Competitive Integrity. The rule states:
"All teams and team members are expected to compete to the best of their skill and ability at all times in any tournament game."
Although Carrilho himself didn't break any rules, he was part of the team that was eventually barred.
Carrilho is known for his aggressive gameplay and has won MVP awards at the PMPL Americas as well as the PMWL 2020 West. With his inclusion in the roster, Alpha will be poised to be more aggressive during future events.
