Luminosity sign WinOut's team
Luminosity Gaming have announced that they have secured the services of WinOut's team.
Luminosity had been without a Counter-Strike team since the start of the month, when the Brazilian team led by Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo officially joined SK Gaming, calling time on a successful stint with the North American organisation that included one Major title.
It had been speculated that Luminosity would land Renegades' team, who are poised to sign for a new organisation, but instead they continued their policy of betting on Brazilian talent by signing one of the country's rising squads.

Created in May, the team feature former Keyd Stars and g3x members, and have been located in Texas since signing for WinOut. The squad's marquee players are Bruno "bit" Lima and Renato "nak" Nakano, both of whom were part of some of the most successful Brazilian 1.6 teams.
The team's first offline event was the Americas Minor Championship, where they took fifth-sixth following defeats against OpTic and Selfless. More recently, the team won Stream.me Gauntlet 3 over Team Kaliber and qualified for the ESEA Main playoffs.
"We are all very proud to be part of LG Family, really excited to represent one of the biggest organizations in the world," Lima told Luminosity's website.
"As a team we've been working really hard for the past months and this is the right opportunity for us to achieve our dreams.
"LG has a really big Brazillian fan base and we will do 150% to make them proud."
