Luminosity sign NAF-FLY

Luminosity Gaming have announced via Twitter that they have completed the signing of Keith "NAF-FLY" Markovic from Team Liquid.

Luminosity have made waves in the North American scene in recent weeks through a couple of big-name signings as they look to cement their place among the top sides in the region.

First, Luminosity made headlines when they signed Swedish talent Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi, who has since moved across the Atlantic to play for the team. Then, they secured the services of Peter "ptr" Gurney, one of the top AWPers in North America, who was a free agent after being released by Counter Logic Gaming.

NAF-FLY

NAF-FLY joins Luminosity in fl0m's stead 

Three victories from four matches in the ESL ESEA Pro League and draws against Cloud9 and Team Liquid in CEVO Professional showed promise, but Luminosity have still decided to fine-tune their squad by bringing in Keith "NAF" Markovic, who had been acting as a substitute for Liquid since Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski's arrival, in March.

NAF will be stepping into the shoes of Erik "fl0m" Flom, who is still part of the team's roster in both CEVO and ESEA, which could mean he will stay on as a backup player.

Luminosity now have the following starting lineup:

United States Todd "anger" Williams
Sweden Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi
United States Alexander "LeX" Deily
United States Peter "ptr" Gurney
Canada Keith "NAF" Markovic

fl0m to clg?
2015-05-11 16:13
That would be a huge downgrade from ptr fl0m is also way worse than players like m0E, cadian, and jdm64 who are trying out with them.
2015-05-11 16:19
Cadian moving to NA?
2015-05-11 16:20
He played a scrim with them not so long ago at least.

Why did they cut fl0m? Just cut LeX for NAF.
2015-05-11 16:19
he's their captain :/
2015-05-11 16:25
flom was their awper but with ptr flom had to rifle mostly which he is not too good aat

axaxaxaxa I forgot to mention, they would probably use double AWP as CT, so he would use rifles mostly on T side

hahahahaha fucking luminosity cuts everyone except the one player who needs to be cut, egotistical retard who can't take criticism
2015-05-11 16:37
strong line up with Naf-fly being a great talent however i do feel replacing flom might not be so good of a move however Lex & his crew might know it better so we cannot judge until we see some results soon :)
2015-05-11 16:38
Not sure how they replace fl0m when he is better than Lex and ptr. :/ </3

My guess is that hes of Serbian descent. Markovic is one of the most common Serb last names. Also there are lots of Serbs living in diaspora in Canada. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markovi%C4%87 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbian_Canadians
2015-05-11 17:57
Flom for life. Honestly would have liked to see NAF take Lex's place if any.

2015-05-11 17:01
Ptr top awpers NA? Ha
2015-05-11 17:07
Ptr is probably top 1 or top 2 AWPers NA. He has been off his top game since the awp update, but he is still amazing. Luminosity got an amazing pick up after clg made a terrible mistake.

2015-05-11 17:34
Great team now. Number 1 or 2 AWPer NA, and 4 amazing fraggers. Lex has been top fragging with team the past few games, no cut needed. It's sad to see fl0m go, but it's good to see the team making progress. Top 1 NA now, just have to work together.
2015-05-11 17:35
sick!
2015-05-11 17:38
Is it just me or does NAF look a lot like one of the KeyD players (cant remember who atm)?
2015-05-11 17:40
Remember those south park episodes with those 2 retards? Naf looks like the one called mimsy

2015-05-11 18:24
Let's hope Luminosity Gaming have a "Stable Starting 5" now. Their team has serious potential now, so only time will tell if they can stick together and if the can be a successful team.
2015-05-11 18:51
-LeX instead please -.-
2015-05-11 19:00
Just dont see Lex being able to compete against euros. Would like to see a raw rifling talent instead.
2015-05-11 19:05
now only -ptr or -lex and + fl0m
2015-05-11 19:59
haha naf-fly showed smoke skill on ace gaming with moe lol
2015-05-11 20:01
I don't understand how top american players think, put away your childlishness and get a fucking pyramid where the greatest 5 players are in one team. Un-fucking believable that they cant even make it happen after all of their losses against SEA and EU..
2015-05-11 23:12
looks quite alright
2015-05-11 23:13
bad move imo... fl0m is really good...
2015-05-11 23:21
