LOUD are coming off a dominant run in 2022 that included a second place finish at Masters 1: Reykjavik, and a world title at Champions 2022. Throughout the entire year, they were undefeated in Brazil; however, the rise of international leagues in the 2023 partnership program led to several changes. After a failed negotiation process with LOUD, Gustavo "Sacy" Rossi and Bryan "pancada" Luna decided to accept an offer to play for Sentinels Sentinels North America Rank #12 instead.
Young star cauanzin joins after spending the past year with Ninjas In Pyjamas Ninjas In Pyjamas Brazil Rank #4 . Like LOUD, NIP were a new project that found immediate success at the start of the year. NIP reached Masters 1: Reykjavik with cauanzin as the youngest player at the event. The team would begin to slide throughout the year, losing the Stage 2 BR/LATAM LCQ and bombing out of the SA LCQ for Champions.
The second player brought in for franchising is tuyz. He was the primary duelist for a TBK Esports TBK Esports Brazil Rank #12 lineup that was a consistent underdog in Brazil during 2022. By the end of the year, they managed to reach just one match away from qualification to Champions. As a duelist, tuyz will be tasked with developing some role flexibility to fit alongside the rest of LOUD.
The coaching staff is also being revamped. Daniel "fRoD" Montaner has been brought on as the head coach to replace Matheus "bzkA" Tarasconi, who departed soon after Champions. He has coached mainly NA teams in the past including T1 and Pioneers, but he also assisted LOUD during their title run. Jordan "stkJ" Nunes has been picked up as an assistant after coaching MiBR throughout 2022.
LOUD are now:
