"Minerva" (Real Name: Gustavo Alves) is a Brazilian League of Legends player, currently a Jungler for ProGaming Esports.

Career History


Minerva is originally a mid laner in solo queue. He is known for his support play, especially on Thresh. He has played as a mid laner with a common team on several organizations. After Espeon's release from paiN Gaming following the wildcard tournament at Gamescom 2013, Minerva joined the team as support and started to duo queue with BrTT. Despite his lack of experience in playing support, his plays contributed to the team's success.


In May, Minerva parted ways with paiN and joined KaBuM! e-Sports where he replaced dans as the team's starting AD Carry. With KaBuM!, he participated in World Championship 2014, and although the team finished last in their group, they were able to beat Alliance in one game. Minerva's play on Jinx was considered as a large contributing factor for the team's success in said victory.

On October 31st, he announced that he was stepping down from KaBuM!. He has no plans of retiring yet but he wanted to take some time off of competitive gaming.[1][2]


  • Necro mentioned in a interview that Minerva will be an excellent support player due to his aggressiveness and mechanics.
  • Favorite midlane champions are LeBlanc and Syndra.
  • He's openly homosexual.
  • Brazilian casters often say that "Minerva left the mid lane, but the mid lane didn't leave him" because of his high KDA on supports.
  • Favorite Supports are Thresh and Sona.
  • After playing as a mid laner, support and AD carry, he then moved to the jungle during the CBLOL Winter 2015.
