PaiN Gaming's Rodrigo ‘biguzera’ Bittencourt expressed his thoughts on the NA and SA CS:GO scenes. His take is that the practice levels vastly differ in both regions. His ironic message on twitter is translated like this:

 How I missed practicing in NA. 

Later, he added some clarification to his opinion:

Brazil is a thousand times better than here. Now I understand why this region is so successful. 

PaiN Gaming's move to NA took place in September 2020. Since then, the roster was playing against some top-tier CS:GO teams. However, the NA scene is gradually dying, with the most notable pros shifting their discipline from CS to Valorant.
