felps to play for SK in WESG Brazil
João "felps" Vasconcellos will play for SK Gaming in the Brazilian qualifier for WESG Americas, the player has revealed.
The announcement comes as a surprise as Ricardo "boltz" Prass has been spotted practicing with the rest of the SK squad at Power Lounge, in São Paulo, and is part of the roster submitted by the two-time Major champions for the qualifier. Moreover, Epitacio "TACO" de Melo had posted on Twitter that boltz would take part in every tournament for the team "except the Major and ECS".
João "felps" Vasconcellos stepped down from SK's starting roster last month after growing increasingly unhappy with his team role. boltz acted as a stand-in at EPICENTER, helping them to win the $500,000 tournament after they beat Virtus.pro (twice), FaZe and Astralis.
Fifteen Brazilian teams will be taking part in the Brazilian WESG qualifier, which will reward the top two sides with spots at the Americas Finals, scheduled for February.
Immortals have also travelled to Brazil to compete in the qualifier, in which they will field Tempo Storm's Bruno "shz" Martinelli as their fifth player. The 19-year-old is expected to be formally unveiled by the Immortals organisation soon.
