Official: Luminosity add fnx, TACO

MIRAA
November 24th, 2015 01:45

Luminosity Gaming have confirmed on their official website the additions of Games Academy duo Tacio "TACO" Filho and Lincoln "fnx" Lau to their CS:GO squad.

HLTV.org had reported on Monday evening that Luminosity were on the verge of replacing Ricardo "boltz" Prass and Lucas "steel" Lopes following a run of poor form that saw them finish in the top four at the iBUYPOWER Invitational and at the RGN Pro Series Championship, and in the top eight at IEM San Jose.

Lincoln "fnx" Lau and Epitacio "TACO" de Melo join Luminosity after raising eyebrows with Games Academy, who are competing in North America thanks to Golden Chance, a gaming project created by Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo with a view to developing the Brazilian scene. 


TACO and fnx join Luminosity 

Games Academy coach Wilton "zews" Prado has also been hired to guide the team, replacing Renato "nak" Nakano, who had been part of the squad since it joined Luminosity.

"This decision was not made lightly, and was made collectively as a team," a statement from Luminosity read.

"Over the past few months our team has consistantly failed to obtain the results we had hoped to achieve as an organization.

"We ask that you respect the decision and the process of roster changes, that goes on behind the scenes.

"We feel it best to keep the discussions, reasons, and details private between the players and the organization."

The new Luminosity roster will have a baptism of fire as it will face fnatic in the first group round of the FACEIT League Stage 3 Finals. DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca champions EnVyUs and Ninjas in Pyjamas make up the rest of the group.

Luminosity now have:

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

Brazil Wilton "zews" Prado (coach)

rip GA... this move on luminosity might work though since they're replacing two extremely passive players with two explosive ones. coldzera has good synergy and chemistry with taco as well. sad about the twins though :(
2015-11-24 02:05
RIP GA HOW? There will be 2 new players replacing then...maybe BIT or Boltz...or even felps...relax! GA is not dead =]

It's all a game made by FALLEN, he did the project just for that one day if he needed to have players to replace, he would never invest in a team to be better than his. That being professional or not, FALLEN is just being stupid and marketer. IMO
2015-11-24 01:57
if he did that, he did a really good job having other pplayers as options
2015-11-24 01:59
GA was serving as LG's minor league team just like in baseball.
2015-11-24 02:45
is a good strat by fallen... and is everyone dream in the br scene to be ppart of the top1 team. As you could see they accept the invitation in a nick of time.

Although it benefits LG more and the rest of the unnoticed GA will get frustrated, GA will never be an actual top team.
2015-11-25 04:00
Grow a pair man. This is business, this isn't just a game they play to have fun like us. It's funny, cuz people have been bashing Fallen for not making changes for a long time and when it happens, a lot of butthurt fans start to talk crap about him, just like when he kicked hen1 and lucas out of KABUM. He wants to win and LG owner wants results. This is how real life works.
2015-11-24 02:08
OK, not talking about the changes, but and the players that still in Games Academy? And the team that they were building, training hard, growing every day and winning stuff ? Now probably they will return home and under pressure, decide what to do, if they'll continue playing or not, create a new team and other things. They will "decrease" their level playing in Brazil in comparison with NA. Their chance of really showing what they are is probably gone. I hope to be wrong about what I'm thinking and writing and hope Luminosity can show a better game. I wish all the best in life and career of the players who are in Games Academy and hope they give a comeback and succeed as players.
2015-11-24 02:34
I feel sorry for GA too man, don't get me wrong. But this would happen eventually, everybody knew it. Perhaps taking 2 + coach was a really rip off, but they need to hold their head up and continue to put up a fight. They already said it they will get 2 more players and continue to live in US, so maybe not all hope is lost for them. I just think it was a little bit delusional to think BR could have 2 top teams the way things were going. If LG achieves something, people will forget this, just like happened with MiBR and GC in 2006
2015-11-24 02:38
Let's wait and see what they are planning and see if both teams can continue doing a good job or even better. I wish good things to them all !
2015-11-24 02:50
bit1 and felps to GA, apparently
2015-11-24 02:43
If it happens, GA will be as good as LG cause bit has lot of experience and is too smart, felps on the other hand is skilled. Despite anything is going on, I will always cheer for Brazil and teams that represent us.
2015-11-24 02:54
Hopefully felps changes his attitude. Kid has a lot of potential, but his personality really f_cks up. s1mple BR
2015-11-24 03:05
when he is with B1t he just be a good guy.

2015-11-24 16:36
recently i played against bit, and i have to say, right now he is so bad..
2015-11-24 04:39
Think it like this: Before GA Brazil had 5players who've been able to show their potential against T1 American teams. After GA there are 10. 2of them will join LG Then there is 7 Brazilians who've played for tier1 NA team, after a year or so there will be more and more. Maybe finally Brazil will have 2 tier1 NA teams and there will be 3rd team as the "youth team" :) Its all good to Brazilian scene even if FalleN helps himself in there as well :)

not yet, they will have to get used to this lineup first, i think they will need 3 months to win a bo3 at least
2015-11-24 01:50
3 months man?? Less I think, they have to bootcamp a lot in EU too
2015-11-24 01:55
I think they'll do what they did before and disappear for a while and then show up to a major and destroy all NA teams and some lower tier EU teams like mouz and dig
2015-11-24 04:21
No, they will upset some T1 team in a bo1 in groupstage, go into play-offs and then getting rekt in bo3. #JustLGThings.

#440
 | 
United States snack- 
Yeah they are VP navi fnatic envy TSM G2 any questions? Navi, g2, and VP I'd say are interchangeable because of how off and on they are. So top6 if you will
2015-11-24 21:01
Navi should be surely before them achievnent wise, same goes for VP and c9 atleast... G2 had 1 good event, no doubt about that but 1 event doesnt m&#283;l that they are top5 team. They have to prove it
2015-11-24 21:44
#447
 | 
United States snack- 
That's not true. C9 is definitely not better than them in any respect. VP and Navi are slightly better than them because when they are on they do win tournaments. But those teams are off a lot of the time and that's when g2 slips in
2015-11-24 21:49
Again... G2 had 1 good tournament with current line up and thats it. It could be just a fluke. You know nothing about their consistency. If they will perform well next like 2 lan tournaments, we can talk about them being top5-6 team

United States snack- 
With the current lineup? I'm talking about the core 4 players. Changing one player for a fragger that is better on paper doesn't change their game that much That's what matters
2015-11-24 22:42
They changed 2 players...but lets say that we will count tournaments with Dennis aswell. Tell me name of lan tournaments except cluj, where they performed well
2015-11-24 22:45
#455
 | 
United States snack- 
Alright let's start with the lineup with scream (scream isn't as good as jkaem and I count this lineup because it contains the core) Cologne top8, Gamers paradise (joke but still a win), Cluj, IEM San jose. So out of the about 5-6 tournaments they played recently, they did well. And I think dreamhack valencia is in there somewhere but that's from a while ago and I know I missed 1 other
2015-11-24 22:50
Sám jose? They played 1 match which they lost. In which universe is that good performance?
2015-11-24 22:53
#458
 | 
United States snack- 
That right there shows your ignorance to the scene. They played 2 matches; they rolled ClG and played TSM (top2 team) to a 2-1 scoreline. That's a decent performance given context
2015-11-24 22:58
You are so biased, it isnt even possible. Envy, fnatic, tsm, navi, VP, c9 and probably even nip should be ranked higher than g2 for now...i have no time for this discussion anymore so whatever you say
2015-11-24 23:02
#460
 | 
United States snack- 
Fnatic is tied with Dignitas right now and has struggled Mightily from their limited playtime with dennis. C9 has done NOTHING on a consistent basis like g2 has. Envy TSM VP Navi are all better yes. NiP is terrible, they have done EVEN LESS THAN C9 Now that you realize that you are completely wrong and I exposed you you are pulling out of this debate because you realize you're wrong and won't admit it.

2015-11-25 08:44
#485
 | 
United States snack- 
Yeah actually I do want to claim that g2 acheived more. C9 had about 2 months of good play where they were an easy top5-top6 team. And they acheived a solid 3 top 2s in a row which is in no way a small feat. They played the likes of fnatic, Navi, TSM, and EnvyUS to get there. BUT the point that needs to get across with C9 is that they were awful before that run, and awful after. That is the reason the consistency factor was put into my argument. Cloud9 hasn't done anything since that run and has no sign of ever returning to that run. G2 on the other hand has accomplished a top4 and top8 at the recent majors, played very close series with top4 teams, Even winning some in bo3s. Although on the results board they haven't really accomplished a hot streak of 2 runs. But they are a better team and while they have been a team they have had much more consistent results than cloud9. And G2 shows no sign of stopping, because they are made up of ALL world class players and not just a bunch of no good NA players. If you're trying to say that a team that has gotten a top8, a top4, and has placed at tournaments a month after the creation of the team is worse than a team with a 2 month hot streak that then turned into never winning a bo3, never placing at a big lan ever again, and showing no sign of ever doing that again then you have some sort of autism. That's unreal actually saying that C9 is better than g2 because of a 2month hot streak

2015-11-24 02:01
I'd like to see bit1 as coach.. Don't know, he is so smart and has a lot of international experience. Would be fun to see him leading LG
2015-11-24 03:03
Is fnx the feni guy that 1v5ed Cloud 9?
2015-11-24 02:02
no
2015-11-24 02:04
I might understand replacing steel but why boltz? The guys stats are terrible because he has been playing in a pure support role while steel was playing the lurker role and being terrible. + before adding coldzera to be the #1 player in the team he was playing really good he was the 2nd best player after fer. not understandable at all.. I think this might be their end.
2015-11-24 02:02
I think it was because boltz was a very quiet guy... Communication could be one of the reasons. As T, he was a good entry fragger. But as CT, he was kinda bad player. He played the exact same spot over and over again, very lonely, not changing his positioning one single round and not playing together with his bombsite mate.
2015-11-24 02:11
This happened after the addition of coldzera whom took over fer's spots and fer took over boltz spots therefore its logical for him to need to adapt.
2015-11-24 03:18
yeah, 4 months/2 majors later... he needs time to adapt... he's a pro, he earns money playing this freakin game, he should've been able to adapt after 4 months with this lineup
2015-11-24 03:22
has it been that long? my bad he doesn't need to adapt but he is still not playing his favorite position when fallen was playing as secondary awper he was a bad player compared to him now.

2015-11-24 02:13
he pretends to be a cool guy, but he is toxic indeed. He is replacing boltz but is also flaming him in the backstage l0l hope he chokes hard the next event.

boltz very unexperienced and young , that's why
2015-11-24 02:35
so as taco
2015-11-24 02:37
taco was playing as IGL on GA , and also doesnt panic or keep pressing QQ to change weapons on wrong times and do such poor decisions
2015-11-24 02:39
actually, we dont know whether taco will panic or not against tier 1 teams. but yeah, for sure, that QQ thing is so fucking annoying
2015-11-24 02:42
if you watch GA games you can see that he's very calm , boltzz even tho he looks calm he still has very little experience because gets nervous and even tho he have a good aim that doesnt change much

Isnt Boltz one of the newer members?? He was actually pretty good in my opinion (even cutrent form). Steel has been in a slump lately and I understand that. Gonna miss him.
2015-11-24 03:22
indeed, boltz was new I believe they changed because of playstyle, fnx and taco are both aggressive and can handle well rushing or clutch situations. This way they can have better tactics and maybe fer will have a rush partner
2015-11-24 03:28
its funny when LG fans claim the team is great and there are no problems, meanwhile their team is so dissatisfied that they can't win a bo3 they kick 2 people. de_lusion

GL, sad for boltz, but this guy have a HUGE future. FNX, the monster is BACK!
2015-11-24 03:58
I was just about to get LG foil stickers for my skins to show support. That is never happening now. They were building a team but switched out players after a few losses just like every other "team." Only real teams left out there are nip and vp. Lost a lot of respect for LG now. They had so much support, like people love to see the underdogs become a T1 team and they were about to achieve that.
2015-11-24 04:03
you don't know what happened. steel was clearly underperforming heavily just looking at numbers but they might well have had internal disagreements about how to play and if the team doesn't get along then you will never work and better to fix it fast than try for months and months without any change.
2015-11-24 04:09
Sure, but you're talking as if that actually happened. As long as they don't give a reason, I'm not joining the speculation-train.
2015-11-24 04:38
Thats actually not speculations as steel already said he didnt like fallen's playstyle. Idk about boltz having internal problems, tho, but i know he's a great friend of steel so he may have had discussions with the team.
2015-11-24 04:46
Ah ok, I see. Still sad to see this team who were climbing the ladder together with G2 get ruined.
2015-11-24 18:18

Just saying: every brazilian that follows LG were asking for changes. And now when these changes comes, they just attack Fallen? lol Everybody knows he is the captain of the team, but it wasn't his decision alone. All the team and the organisation choosed that way. Btw, I just don't get it. FNX and TACO were entry fraggers on GA. Steel was lurker and, as far as I know, boltz was support (cold and fer being entry). So, even if boltz can be entry fragger, someone will have to change his role. This will take time. And I don't think that boltz should get kicked. I know that his 'QQ thing' is annoying, but he always did his job. He sometimes stepped up, but I think that he was the 2nd most consistent player in the line up. He was just behind coldz (who's being a monster). Fer isn't playing his full potential. We all know that. As well Fallen. He can awp so much better, but he is not in his true perform. But boltz was there everytime they needed him. Well, let's see. I'm saying this now: if they can bootcamp a little or just practice some things together before FACEIT Lans, they can really upset Fnatic (again). FNX is a nice player, but I'm not sure about Taco.

In his interview a week ago, he said he was "IGL (helping zews since zews doesn't have game's sound) and entry fragger with fnx". Showtime was lurker. At least, that's what he said.
2015-11-24 18:57
i knew this would happen even i do not like the boltz because have only aim,so he has same positioning it since KaBuM,and fnx i do not think he has a better aim than boltz but it is not so fickle and has a lot more experience and positioning more than boltz.And the steel has many players are better than him taco/felps/destiny etc..

2015-11-24 12:39

I agree with many that replacing Steel was a good shout but Boltz less so. Either way good luck to LG and Boltz/Steel.

its became in reality, wasn't gossip rumors.

2015-11-24 14:34
dont think it was nessecary, they didnt underperform that bad, had close games which led to early tournament outs but all in all i dont see any reason to change the roster unless there have been internal problems
2015-11-24 14:15
They had a lot of mistakes, last tournament they were close in the score with navi and lost to themselves: -Always choked in BO3; -steel kinda always bottom frag on regular-basis and never clutches; -boltz had "QQ taping", communication and position issues, but he's very young and can fix it. -nak was just a cheerleader for what ppl said. Now brozilians don't have anything to complain about the skill of players. This line is the very best of Brazil IMO. Ofc the chemestry could take sometime to appear, to make 5 players become a team.

You really think taco is top 5 in brazil? You better be joking.
2015-11-24 17:06
No, i think Boltz has better skills then Taco but Boltz has another problems with de team like comunication and some things that us will never know beacuse Buyaka, the org owner, say that no will tell in respect to Boltz

why nobody mentions that fnx was mibr player
2015-11-24 14:49
I think thats because this gives him a "legendary status" in Brasil, we really love the history of mibr and we are waiting for another team with same results but today have been a mibr player is something thats no mean great things, i watched "cogu" playing yesterday and he is a normal player today. Brazilians need to understand that mibr over and the only player who still has the world stage is fnx maybe bit1 get there while you're on the team top1 playing in Brazil today. Thanks to remember mibr haha

2015-11-24 15:18
Thorin needs to make a video about fnx, because quite a few people here thinks he's just some newbie in CS. While fnx is actually a top3 Brazil CS player of all time.

2015-11-24 17:03
Nice to see fnx back in the spotlight, hopefully TACO performs well. Go LG!!!
2015-11-24 16:14
Good for the GA guys but this move isn't gonna give LG the results they expect.
2015-11-24 16:27
They will for sure be way ahead of all low burguers though

2015-11-24 16:36
Why boltz? he was doing good imo
2015-11-24 16:43
Probably for the CT-side. Boltz is very good as TR, but weaker as CT.

mmmm TACO? mmmm
2015-11-24 18:09
Boltz >>>>>>>>> TACO
2015-11-24 18:49
TACO.. hahah, that's gotta be the most brilliant nickname i've seen in a while
2015-11-24 19:56
Well, in Brasil TACO no means nothing... in popular language that is the thing that is used to bat in baseball but in Brazil we do not have baseball then used to hit other peoples haha, ok, it's a joke. Explain nick is something useless but it would be something like "one who beats the others "
2015-11-25 12:55
It's not "used", it means bat. Also for golf, snooker, hockey sticks.
2015-11-25 20:03
