steel & zakk join Luminosity
Luminosity have added Lucas "steel" Lopes and Rafael "zakk" Fernandes as replacements for Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes and Alessandro "Apoka" Marcucci.
This marks Lucas "steel" Lopes's second stint with the organization, as he spent four months under the Luminosity banner back in 2015, when he played with the Brazilian lineup led by Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo.
The 24-year-old had been teamless since he left Liquid "for professional and personal reasons" in early April, following a five-month tenure with the North American organization.
Rafael "zakk" Fernandes had been looking for offers ever since the Immortals lineup was released in late 2017, after the previous team split up, with Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe, Henrique "HEN1" Teles, and Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles forming NTC (later known as 100 Thieves for a short period).
Luminosity will be looking to bolster their stance in ECS and ESL Pro League. They are still in contention for spots at both finals, sitting in third place in the former league (seven wins from 12 matches) and in seventh place in the latter (25 points from 18 matches).
The new lineup will make their offline debut at WCA Finals, which will take place in Zhuhai, China, on April 29-30.
Luminosity now have:
Rafael "zakk" Fernandes (coach)
