Luminosity: SHOOWTiME & PKL out, HEN1 & LUCAS1 in *
In the announcement, the organization revealed that the twins have been acquired from SK Gaming, which suggests HEN1 and LUCAS1 had already signed contracts with the German organization prior to leaving Não Tem Como in March.
* Update: Luminosity have altered the announcement, stating that they did not buy the players.
The duo will shortly join the rest of the team for a boot camp in Katowice, where they'll start their preparations for the upcoming tournaments, namely DreamHack Open Valencia, which will take place on July 12-14.
SHOOWTiME and PKL had been two of the three longest-standing members of Luminosity alongside captain Gustavo "yel" Knittel, who is now the only remaining player of the original WinOut squad that transferred to the North American organization in July 2016.
This marks the second time the Brazilian team has gone through changes in as many months, as Lucas "steel" Lopes and Rafael "zakk" Fernandes replaced Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes and Alessandro "Apoka" Marcucci in late April.
"We are grateful to Luminosity for this opportunity. The LG jersey carries a big history in CS:GO. We have had some time to reflect on the past and realize some of our mistakes," the twins said in a joint statement.
"We've grown as people outside the game and it will help us as teammates in the future. We are hungry as ever. The same feeling we had in Games Academy. We want to bring Luminosity CS:GO back to the top where it belongs and make all of our fans proud. We will earn your respect and your cheer. Thank you."
Luminosity's new roster is:
Rafael "zakk" Fernandes (coach)
