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.
