Imperial Esports (Imperial) is an eSports organization from Brazil. After originally starting out with a CrossFire roster, Imperial Esports has since ventured into new game titles. This includes Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Valorant. Over the years, they’ve signed a large number of players to their rosters, which has led to them gaining recognition on the world stage. 

Interestingly, all of the players that Imperial Esports have signed during their history are Brazilian. Why? Because the organization is intent on finding the best Brazilian talent around to represent them in CS: GO and Valorant. There’s also been a specific focus on signing veteran players – such as FalleN and VINI – in order to add balance to the team and provide guidance to younger players. 

Imperial Esports History: 2018 – Now 

Imperial Esports first entered the Esports scene in 2018. Almost immediately, their attention shifted towards CS: GO. But rather than sign individual players from scratch, they created a CS: GO roster by acquiring the CS: GO team from Santos e-Sports, another Brazilian eSports team.  

2019 saw Imperial eSports introduce a small Imperial Esports Female CS:GO roster consisting of Ana “AnnaEX” Carolina Brito and Letícia “Le^” Lima. The Imperial Esports Female roster then disbanded towards the end of 2019. In 2020, Imperial decided to create a Valorant roster, too. The team then competed in various qualifiers and tournaments from 2020 to 2021, including First Strike Brazil and the Chroma Cup #4. 

During its existence, Imperial Esports has competed in 49 CS: GO tournaments, achieving relative success along the way. Most notably, they experienced a peak viewership number of 1,061,032 at PGL Major Antwerp (2022), which saw them finish in a respectable 11th place. After PGL Major Antwerp (2022), several changes to the roster took place. For instance, “peacemaker” departed from the group due to internal issues that were not publicly disclosed. 

Towards the end of 2022, Imperial managed to reach the final 24-team IEM Rio Major (2022). However, Imperial was eliminated in the first phase after struggling to get the results needed. Moving into the future, the plan for Imperial is to continue competing in tournaments, attract greater Brazilian talent, and ultimately make it to the finals of some big tournaments. Fans can stay up to date with Imperial by following the team’s official Instagram and Twitter pages.
