Brazilian organization KaBuM! e-Sports announced today that they will be restructuring and have suspended activities for their League of Legends division.

Citing the need to continue to aid in the growth of esports as a whole in Brazil, KaBuM! reiterated their commitment to esports and told readers to stay tuned for further announcements regarding their restructuring.

KaBuM!'s LoL roster consisted of top laner Alvaro "Verto" Martins, junglers Daniel "Danagorn" Drummond and João "Zuao" Vitor Morais, mid laner Guilherme "Vash" Del Buono, AD carry Pedro "Matsukaze" Gama and support Jorge "Verfix" Silveira all of whom were released by the team so that they could pursue other opportunities.

Best known for their upset group stage win against European team Alliance at the 2014 World Championship, KaBuM! brought international attention to the minor region. Danagorn was the only remaining member of that World Championship lineup still listed on the current KaBuM! roster.

KaBuM! finished fifth in the recent 2016 CBLoL Winter Season with a 2-0-5 set record, earning a spot in the 2017 CBLoL Summer Season next year. There is no word on whether they will resume their LoL division with a different roster or sell their spot to another organization.
