Luminosity to change two

Luminosity Gaming are weighing up the possibility of replacing Lucas "steel" Lopes and Ricardo "boltz" Prass, HLTV.org understands.

The Brazilian team have come under fire in recent weeks following a series of underwhelming results at offline events despite repeating their top-eight finish from ESL One Cologne at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca.

After securing back-to-back top-four finishes at the iBUYPOWER Invitational and the RGN Pro Series, Luminosity were sent packing at IEM San Jose following a 0-2 defeat at the hands of Natus Vincere, who would go on to win the event.

Questions have been raised about the team's ability to turn things around, especially because they have struggled against other top ranked sides in best-of-three series since the start of the year.


boltz and steel could be on their way out of Luminosity 

And with Luminosity due to attend the FACEIT League Stage 3 Finals at the end of the week, the team is contemplating the possibility of undergoing a double roster change, with Lucas "steel" Lopes and Ricardo "boltz" Prass both likely to get the axe, a source close to the squad has told HLTV.org.

The main candidates to replace the duo are Epitacio "TACO" de Melo and Lincoln "fnx" Lau, both from Games Academy, a team that is currently competing in North America due to the Golden Chance gaming project led by Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo.

Luminosity have been drawn in Group B for the FACEIT League Finals, alongside EnVyUs, Ninjas in Pyjamas and fnatic. Their first match in Sweden will see them take on the ESL One Cologne champions, who recently signed Dennis "dennis" Edman from G2. 

The team's revamped squad will likely feature:

Brazil Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Brazil Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
Brazil Marcelo "coldzera" David
Brazil Lincoln "fnx" Lau
Brazil Epitacio "TACO" de Melo

Yeah but G2 isn't a top 5 team and you'd probably have to beat one in a bo3 to get into semis.

What? I'm not an LG fan, but G2 is FOR SURE a top 5 team. Name the teams better than them. (And no, NiP is not better)
2015-11-23 21:51
fnatic, tsm, envy, vp, navi obviously not in order
2015-11-23 21:57
L O L he forgot about those 5 teams? Hes probably gonna say fnatic isnt a top 5 team watch.

How does one forget TSM EnVy NaVi fnatic VP. G2 is at the level of NiP, solid 6.-7. At tier 1.
2015-11-24 08:08
yeah.. if they won that match vs Na'vi which was 2 really close games.. they would be top4 in a major already this year :P they're not a bad team at all ^^ i assume they'll have to play a while to get to know each other's game tho... we'll see how good this change will get.

They lost that match for themselves, they need a psychologist to help them during those high pressure moments.
2015-11-23 21:32
hehe I agree, I was just implying it was a close game ^^ I wanted a G2 - LG finals, underdogs ftw!
2015-11-23 21:33
LG didn't make any huge mistakes. It was GuardiaN with the unstoppable force that cost LG the game then. Can't really blame them, they played great. But I don't think any shrink could've helped them at the point where GuardiaN is at that form.
2015-11-23 21:44
they lost to those navi eagle + scout rounds.. lots of them
2015-11-23 21:50
Losing to those buys is rarely the teams fault, sure they often adjust their play for the ranges, but more often than not it comes to the other team hitting some heroic 1hit kills that you can't do much about. LG played really well, just not really at the level of NaVi.
2015-11-24 08:10
the thing about this is, whenever LG discovered that they were doing this strat by the time, they should adapt to it, and they didn't... they just stick to the plan in those situations and usually felt 1 by 1... or they were left with 2 players needing to rush to try acomplishing anything in the round... this a major problem for them.
2015-11-24 09:55
Well, in the end they lost because of what happened in the last 10 or so rounds. They played well, they were winning. 13-7 or something? But the reason is that NaVi kept forcebuying. Not a single round on the CT side had GuardiaN had an AWP. Then it changed, GdN got the AWP, ta da 15-15. A good effort by the underdog, NaVi almost threw the game away but woke up early enough.

6 months ago I was like... kick that steel already... now it happens! and they are gonna go huge now! without that heavy ball near leg while you swim, I have no idea how to put it in english :D
2015-11-23 21:34
I know what you mean, that steel was their dead weight and they had to carry him 24/7.. kinda like my favourite team NIP and Friberg atm... ;D We will see if LG will improve now.
2015-11-23 21:36
as much as I love NA CS, the only hope is if Valve unban IBP players they were some of the best few players or if C9 start changing their playstyle and CT Set-up, They are capable of getting many rounds T Side but it has always been the CT side that failed them.

no no no I do not wanna hear about unbaning scammers and cheater! it would totally destroy CS... if every one can get unbanned after stealing 25k money of about 40k people! You guys are not thinking how it will affect all the people involved in this... they got banned and let's keep it this way...
2015-11-23 21:36
They didn't cheat? Also VP kinda tried scamming too? They lost a match that was played offline but is still on CSGOLounge and they bet against themself to win skins they are technically scamming the site and their fans who placed skins on them doesn't that means we should ban them too?
2015-11-23 21:39
If you Start arguing with those Kinda things you could List almost any Team which lost to some Underdog...the difference with ibp is that the shit came out
2015-11-23 22:59
Not really, they didn't intentionally lost but they place skins on themself after knowing the lost which is still considered scamming in my opinion, so there is no reason to say they shouldn't be unbanned when VP is not banned even though they did attempt to scam skins of their fans by betting against themself

he wasnt afraid of Guardian, he was trying a new sens, now he is back to the old one... dont ask me why hed try a new sens in the middle of a fucking major
2015-11-23 22:00
you should watch the vods, it was a nice battle between awps and it would go to 3rd map if GuardiaN didn't win the battle at 14-9 and start a comeback.

Really.. The thing that most want Fallen is see a Brazilian team world champion, yesterday he did an stream interview and he said that changes need be done to improve the team, today were Boltz and Steel, but the next one can be him.. The most important thing it's have the most stronger team, if the things didn't change, Fallen can become coach and Hen1 replace him. But definitely he will always be in some way helping
2015-11-25 18:43
would be good if he's the worst player, because he is good, so, good team
2015-11-23 22:04

wtf u talking about, he was in mibr with cogu dude
2015-11-23 21:39
so how does this make him a legend you stuppid faggot.Unlike you i ve watched this matches he is no way near to become a legend,just like allen from SK for example(even though allen was 10x more impressive than this guy).
2015-11-23 21:42
He won 3 majors and never lost in Brazil.
2015-11-23 21:47
3 majors?Check your facts again please.Also cogu won them,everyone else where just decoys.Thats why i mentioned allen.He played in one of the best teams to ever touch this game,but still he aint no legend.

Internationally it's unquestionable cogu>fnx. Because in the international champs cogu did the difference more times. But after some fights/discussions between them(mibr) and Fnx have been kecked. Fnx gave an interview talking "The team that I'm will be the best of Brazil". And he fulfilled, won everything here for a long time, stomped mibr in the games after this facts.. So definitely he wasn't a decoy, who really followed them knows that Fnx was pretty good as cogu in different function. Anyway we have new times, new game.. I just hope he repeat his old performance
2015-11-25 19:12
so you are basicly impying that fnx is a legend because he was the best in brazil for quite some time.Thats why i dont argue with brazillians ;).
2015-11-25 19:33
#784
felps | 
Brazil Fr4m3 
I made sure to not use that word, my point is he wasn't insignificant in mibr, and in brazil he was/is considered pretty weel as cogu. Legends are made from a massive common point of view, and I know, as brazilian player just cogu have this status in the whole word. I just showed you why Brazilians are so fond of Fnx. About to not argue with Brazillians, I never understood people who like to characterize an entire nation based in anything. It's like to say "don't argue to Germans for being so prepotent", just because you're. each one is each one.

To be in the top8 and never to win.. Or to take a chance and get better. Change is sometimes good! I didnt really see that LG team beating the top4 teams in bo3's.

so you didnt watch luminosity vs fnatic ?

no, shox and smithz is more like fallen and steel haha, boyfriends
2015-11-23 21:24
but fallen is probably kicking steel, not really boyfriends tho c:
2015-11-23 21:28
No, they weren't. Steel was pretty close to fallen. That's why it took so longer to kick him. In my opinion Boltz was doing a great job even he was kind of inconstant. Anyways lets see if these changes work.

No. If you really want to do this comparison, zqk was the one that was very close to steel (they played together a long time for TargetDown and were the ones brought in from that lineup to form Keyd Stars), and that didnt stop them from changing the squad before (they sure took their sweet time, so at the very least they're being consistent). Even though steel was working for Games Academy (as a coach, teaching new players) as far as 2013, so he also has some background with fallen, I think they resisted another rooster change as much as they could for obvious reasons. It wasnt because steel is closer to fallen or anything (I dont know much of fallen personally, but he's not this kind of person, thats for sure).

I know of mibr, I have been around cs since 2000 my friend but I wouldn't call fnx a legend. Cogu was for sure.
2015-11-23 23:13

2015-11-23 21:23
its not, hes playing very well recently and improving day by day. idk people just don't know that, just take a look a his pov's and see.
2015-11-23 21:24
yea he is playing good vs tier9 NA teams
2015-11-23 21:37
cloud9 tier9? i aren't think that.
2015-11-23 21:42
judging by 1 game gj
2015-11-23 21:47
Trust me pls e: his aim is way better, and throw smokes and other shits he knows aswell.
2015-11-23 21:59
boltz aim >> taco aim but he makes a lot of mistakes
2015-11-23 22:01
i could agree for boltz stay, but not steel, perhaps as coach. I don't believe his that smart, if so, why he didn't fixed all mistakes that lg always do?
2015-11-23 22:05
yes, steel needs to leave ASAP

Its the strongest team that we could have atm, but some brazilians dislike Taco, cause my fellows are dumb ad judge every player by appereance not by their performance. lel
2015-11-23 21:26
felps plays better than taco, but way too toxic
2015-11-23 22:00
no. Taco needs to prove himself big time lol
2015-11-23 21:31
194# like i said.
2015-11-23 21:43
At least on paper yeah. Fer, fallen and cold are arguably brazil's top3 players, having both highest K/D ratio and Rating of the current luminosity line-up. On the other hand, fnx and taco are clearly Games Academy most gifted riflers. Both display an >1.0 K/D ratio, and while fnx currently boosts GA's top rating (always top fraging), TACO is more of a consistent player, and only falls behind hen1 - their awper-, in rating (think of fnatic's krimz). I would say both TACO and fnx are viable players for this roster change. fnx does display more of an aggressive style, having very similar average kills and assists per round to boltz. TACO on the other side should be a huge upgrade over steel, being imo a very consistent passive/defensive player with better clutch abilities and closing-off-rounds (backup) skills, something steel wasn't always capable of.
2015-11-23 21:54

Switzerland banzB1CEPS 
no, they will stay the shame shit if not even worst, same way when they kicked zqk, It's just to make the fanboys hopes light again so they keep giving money to fallen. Also taco is bad af, he will be the next steel and will probably be kicked after a series of bad results. And fnx is agressive, like a "I do wtver I want" guy, and will probably not fit the methodical, slow game of LG. So unless they change their gamestyle fnx will not fit in any way.
2015-11-23 22:23

2015-11-23 21:26
For me these changes are completely wrong way to fix it a bad streak, despite it wasn't a bad performance against Na'Vi, they played even better than Na'Vi, and the score was adjust. Maybe there are other inconveniences inside by the ambient. I'll hope that will be just a gossip rumor.

boltz is so disgusting, but I've always thought he was a great player, at least the games I've seen from him. Steel is great too but seemed rather inconsistent lately. New changes sound good, hopefully it works out for the future

2015-11-23 22:10
Nope.
2015-11-23 22:12
Who then? Everyone talks about how this team is a threat to win any tourney they enter but all they do is win bo1 then get eliminated. Even cloud 9 made it to 3 international finals over the summer and then won back to back NA lans that luminosity completely shit the bed at. People talk like this team is better than liquid or cloud 9 but what have they done? Fine, they got out of groups at 3 majors, but that is probably only because no top team takes them seriously.
2015-11-23 22:19
Maybe now they can win some bo3 against tier 1 teams :)
2015-11-23 22:24
I just don't think they're overrated man. A lot of brazilians come here and talk shit as if they were top1, but that happens to every fanbase. I think normal people know their ceiling and for now, its to cause group stage upsets. They have a lot of room for improvement and hopefully this will happen, but open minded fans know how good they are rn. IMO, I don't think they're better than c9 or Liquid. Its 3 inconsistent teams who have a lots of ups and downs, with the difference being that c9 peaked higher so far. I only disagree when you say top teams doesn't take them seriously. I think they take them seriously, but LG plays better on bo1s, they know how to perform as underdogs and don't feel much pressure. Cheers, mate!

I feel like LG just want to change the team around ever so often to give the other Brazilians a spot on the pro tour. But also to give other players a chance of course. I thought boltz was okay and he is 18 so he has room to grow.
2015-11-23 22:17
nope, the team have good results and can achieve even better results, but without winning they HAVE to change something, and they changed the weakest.. boltz have future, but LG needs better results right now

2015-11-23 22:22
I will tell maybe why boltz is being kicked. I see him as a very quiet and spoiled child, he's too immature atm, who see LG POV's knows that he dont help a lot his team with calls and informations, and probably he doesn't add something up at training and strats, he was only about his skills, which was pretty shaky lately. Taco was the IGL and probably the player who spend more time studying the game at GA and fnx is more skilled than boltz and make better in game decisions... Personally i dont like TACO too much, but fnx is way better than boltz and steel needs to be coach, he's very smart but can't handle a head-to-head situation. NAK is only the schedule guy from LG...
2015-11-23 22:18
fail, zews is the new coach.
2015-11-23 22:24
great point actually
2015-11-23 22:31
boltz stays at the same position as CT, always dies doing QQ, he doesn't inovate, and inovation is maybe what LG needs, and fnx can handle this

I don't really about TACO. I think he is as equal as boltz, but he is probably smarter, can put more effort in the game and can improve a lot, while boltz looks like he's stuck. Maybe he will struggle in the beginning, but they will do a lot better. I just would like to see cold being the igl. He was in Dexterity, why not in LG?

Looks sick! Great move but I have my doubts on TACO. I think TACO=Boltz.

I wouldn't kick boltz man, really... I'm afraid of these changes. fnx instead of steel with some role changes would be enough.

Rip LG, fucking idiots ruining two teams. You're not allowed to call yourself a team when switching players because of losses. It's just a bunch of players under an organization's name at that point.
2015-11-23 23:26
Well, nV switched 2 players with Titan and won a major. lol
2015-11-23 23:47
+1 :D
2015-11-24 00:40
Exactly...they're nV...they switch players as soon as they lose and play with pug strategies. Luminosity was a lot different from this, they were building a team. You'll never get that though.
2015-11-24 03:56
So you think Fnatic can't call themselves a team ?
2015-11-24 13:44
They only switched out one, but it was after a long time of playing together. I'd call them a team, but I did lose respect for them. However it seems Pronax wanted to leave on his own, so...

Boltz getting out is really unexpected, might not look like it cause of his role, but he's one of the best aimers in Brazil, if not the best. This definitely wouldnt happen if the current GA team had found an american sponsor, as originally intended. I guess their reasoning is that since they're gonna risk a rooster change, might as well go big on it. Maybe we'll see more of these shuffles between LG and GA if this lineup fails to deliver good results.
2015-11-24 00:02
Boltz may be the best sprayer. Fer and Cold are way better aimers than him

bit is playing in g3x (best team in brazil after GA & LG left)
2015-11-24 00:55
They surely has more potential than 99% of Brazil, but not FalleN or fer. You are acting like a brazilian miBR fanboy.

fnx is a legend 4 us in brazil. Won more than 900 champs, hahaha and top fragging almost every game. His international carrer is good, only. but 2006, 2007 he was the top10 better rifle in globe, 4 sure.
2015-11-24 01:25

well.. expected for steel, he was soooo bad.. FINALLY BUT boltz? nooo he was decent player.. bringing fnx this is fucking huge! and honestly if cogu decided to come back and play professionally... that could be top5 team NO DOUBT!!!
2015-11-24 01:36
That's the problem, cogu already said that he's coming back to professional CS, but, in his last streams he just can't play like he played before on 1.6, it's already been 3 months that he said this and he just can't do anything in CS:GO, it's not that he don't want, is just that he can't, he still play CS 1.6 sometimes and he's still a legend, but when he open the CS:GO his skills just don't work
2015-11-24 04:04

Estonia rYm 
He needs to play with best bra players and this will level up him a lot. It took virtus.pro players almost a year until they started doing some dmg. Thats really sad that cogu cant find the key to csgo.

I really thought that in jan ... g2 and Nip will swap players / G2 will get few NIP players and fox will eventually move to LG .... but then that seems unlikely ... wanted to see Jkaem, maik, rain, forest and gtr in a team .... But this makes things a lot more interesting !! :)
2015-11-24 06:08
Fox never will play in LG m8 KNG > Hen1 > Fox
2015-11-24 06:35
Fox is better .... just skill alone aint gonna make ppl good players .... fox has improved sooo much ... the guy has good game sense n makes things happen alone .... n tat puts him above most .... Rain is the same too ... might not the best rifler for some but his game sense n clutch skills make him the best to me .... N y wouldn fox goto LG ?? may 2 awp not needed is wat u saying or old problems between players ?? they spk the same lang dont they ...
2015-11-24 06:39
NT FOX
2015-11-24 07:32
rain is SUPER SKILLED tbh But fox is aswell, not so much with the awp but overall, decent awp, good rifle, great clutches and game sense, good pistol aswell. He could be a good fit. But he is already in a good team and FOR THE FIRST TIME since mibr we do have ALL the best brazillian players in one team. Someone can argue about felps, but he is a pug player, has the skill but he is dumb ingame and always fight in the teams that he is playing with

Any problem with Fox. But Brazil have a LOT of good aim players with so much potencial.. So any change in GA and LG teams will definitly come from Br players. Teamplay are easy to take playing beside Fallen&cia, the player just need good notion and an insane aim.
2015-11-24 16:30

We all agree that changing boltz won't help much(if anything), but changing Steel will make a huge difference, LG is surely a stronger team now in terms of skill. If they manage to make a team with these 2 new players, they surely will be bigger in the scene.
2015-11-24 12:06
Boltz is the most solid player in bomb holds. He ALWAYS locks a bombsite. But he always lose clutches in the other hand. Fnx is ok holding sites but he always wins clutches. They are changing their style by it. And plus, fnx has the potential to be one of the best in the world as it was stated by fer and Fallen before.
2015-11-24 12:11

why did they remove boltz?
2015-11-25 04:17
Shy, doesn't speak much during the game, gets too nervous sometimes. He's very young, he can still improve and bounce back. For now, they will have the more experienced fnx to replace him. fnx himself was kicked from this team (he lacked commitment), and after he solved his issues, they are taking him back. Same thing might happen to boltz in the future.
2015-11-25 04:23
Cuz FNX is something like FER or Cold and Boltz aways change Weapon and got rushed + not communicate with the team Now the Team has 3 Clutch Players + Fallen and Taco
