Brazilian eSports club Imperial introduced Luiz "peacemaker" Tadeu as the head coach of its CS:GO lineup. The 33-year-old took the place of Caio "rkz" Sinigaglia, who will continue to work for the organization in another position.
Tadeu had been a free agent since May of this year, when he ended his partnership with the MAD Lions. The Brazilian coach has also previously led such notable teams as Tempo Storm, Liquid, NRG, Misfits, TYLOO, and Heroic.
