FalleN rejects LUCAS1 rumours

SK Gaming veteran Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo has quashed speculation linking his team with Immortals talent Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles.

The Brazilian giants have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old after crashing out of PGL Major Krakow in the quarter-finals following a 2-0 defeat against Astralis.

Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles, who played a key role in Immortals' runners-up finish at the Polish event, was one of the players on SK's list before the team eventually signed João "felps" Vasconcellos, in February.

SK do not consider replacing felps with LUCAS1, says FalleN

However, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo has guaranteed in an interview with ESPN that, since overcoming their slump following felps' addition, the team "has never considered changing a player."

"Lucas was one of the players that we considered, during a certain period he was to be our fifth player, but then we decided to go for felps because we thought we would be more successful with him," FalleN added.

"It was a team choice. The only thing that happened was that, when we failed in our first two tournaments, we had to make an adjustment, be it in terms of players, practice or posture.

"We talked during this difficult period and we started over. We accepted we were in a difficult moment and we worked from there."

SK will be at Arena MAX5, in São Paulo, this weekend, where they will face the winner of GamersClub Masters 2017, a Brazilian tournament with some of the best teams in the country, in a showmatch.

DonHaci on twitter, famous leaker. He actually rumoured this as "low chance". Other "likely" rumours (he even make a GDocs table): 1) Faze: +Guardian -Allu. His contract ends next month. 2) Maybe Faze made an offer for Olof too. Replacing kio. 2) Mousesports: mixwell for ChrisJ, +sunny +styko -lowel -denis. He said that styko already out of HR. bondik twt that he feel that will be the biggest shuffle ever and in two waves. 3) Navi: ANGE1 e electronic likely to be the replacements. 4) North: valde to replace Magisk. 5) C9 roster looking for a raise in a new org. autimatic chat screenshot confirming.

Rumor has it SK actually tried to sign lucas1 instead of felps, but he refused the move because he wanted to play with his brother hen1.
2017-07-28 20:32
well, it seems it worked well for both. felps is much better than lucas anyway

Why would they replace felps if Taco is the most inconsistent. They tend to say that he does the hardest role on the team which is Entry fragger,but he barely gets a kill when opening a site. Inb4 im not a hater also i dont even care much about pro scene,but thats the truth.
2017-07-28 21:46
not true, taco is very very consistent

I mean I'd understand if the rumours were about boltz. But why would they get lucas1 anyway lol, they would get worse. Even if lucas were better than TACO/felps, SK would still have to adapt to the change, they would struggle a lot again, just like they did when they got felps. And he's not better

lucas1 playstyle is very unique, felps may be one of the best in terms of aim and mechanics in brazilian teams but I don't think he's better overall, he's just a version of fer with no patience and less discipline. csgo is a game where whoever take the best decision wins and felps is clearly lacking that needed gamesense for his role.

Omg ppl saying lucas1 wont let hen1 to join fallen's roster knows nothing. If it wont happen than why it was sk's CHOICE to bring felps INSTEAD OF lucas1? :) Anyway as others said: what rumour was that none heard nothing about? But tbh i think they do need to kick taco.
