Pava, a Brazilian Counter-Strike veteran, announced he will stop competing professionally in CS:GO. He will start a new career as a streamer.
Rafael "pava" Pavanelli joined Team One in September 2016, but this October was forced to take a break due to personal reasons. In future, he will continue working under their name but as a streamer.
On Facebook, Rafael announced that he has taken one of the most difficult decisions of his entire life. He spent a lot of time playing CS:GO professionally, but now it is time for a change.
His fans shouldn't be sad. Thanks to the support of Team One, that has always believed in his ideas, he will start a new career as a streamer.
Currently, he is learning a lot in order to offer his fans the best content possible. Pava plans to stream multiple games, discuss about tournaments, and more.
Finally, he tanked everyone that followed and supported him during his career as a player, and once again was grateful to Team One for this new opportunity.
Pava had a very successful career, particularly in his home country. In 2005-2006 he won multiple tournaments and earned the second place at 2006 CPL Brazil.
