Pain, Flamengo Joint Faves to Win CBLOL Split 1

CBLOL Rebrand 2021

Competitive League of Legends is once again kicking off all around the world and it’s no different in Brazil as the Campeonato Brasileiro de League of Legends (CBLOL) is set to start on January 16.

With a rebrand, increased prize pool and expansion of team slots, we’re no doubt in for the most competitive year of the CBLOL yet as we see the best in Brazil battle it out. All this is, of course, also good news for bettors, as there will be more games to wager on and a fleshed-out season to follow.

Who’s Playing in CBLOL 2021

Thanks to an overhaul, we’ll now see 10 teams competing in the CBLOL as compared to the usual eight. This means all the previous fan favorites like Pain Gaming, Intz, Kabum Esports and Furia will be present, as well as some new faces in Red Canids and Rensga Esports.

Overall, the season remains much the same, with teams facing off weekly for nine weeks, followed by a set of playoffs. Those eventual playoffs will decide the overall winner of Split 1, so make sure to keep your eyes there if you’re wagering on futures.

When it comes to the teams themselves, there have been a ton of changes, and practically every team has made multiple moves.

Pain Looks For Revenge After Tough 2020 Loss

Split 2 of 2020 looked to be all Pain Gaming after a strong regular season. The team topped the table, winning 14 of 21 matches, and looked in solid form heading into the playoffs. However, that’s where it all slipped away from them. They barely edged past fourth-placed Prodigy and just a few decisive moments saw Intz take the grand final.

Now, the team is no doubt hungry for revenge and eager to claim the organization’s first title since 2015. The veteran core has the crucial experience, while new signings should add some vital firepower.

They enter as one of the favorites for a reason and they’re a hungry squad that’s well worth watching.

Intz Reinforces Core, Looks to Defend Crown

After a hotly contested victory in Split 2 of 2020, where Intz barely overcame Kabum and Pain to win the playoffs, Intz backed their core of Envy and micao and bolstered the top, jungle and support roles heading into 2021.

The two veterans are joined by a young star in Boal, as well as two other experienced CBLOL players, Cabu and Revolta. The aim for the team is definitely to find more consistency and become a powerful force in Brazilian League of Legends.

Considering how close it was in 2020, this may prove to be a challenge. However, with a few new players to support their stars, Intz is primed and ready to defend its title.

Kabum Esports Makes Huge Moves to Reclaim Brazil

Kabum had one of the most dominant periods in Brazilian League of Legends, controling both the regular season and the playoffs in 2018 and claiming four first places in a row. However, they have looked a bit shaky the past few years, with just one second place and countless disappointing results.

Clearly, the organization has had enough of that and plans to enter 2021 with a bang. Kabum picked up four new players in the offseason, including two Korean imports, Wizer and Ryan, as well as CBLOL veteran Professor and rookie Evrot.

With what is essentially a whole new roster, it’s difficult to predict the team’s performances. However, there are clearly big plans for success, and the organization will no doubt do all it can to push the team to the limit. While backing them so early may be a big risk, Kabum could prove to be a surprise success in 2021.
