Luminosity unveil felps

João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos has linked up with Luminosity, the North American organisation has announced.

The Brazilian player arrives from MIBR on loan as part of the deal that saw Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles move in the opposite direction, also on a temporary basis.

In Luminosity, he will reunite with his former Immortals teammates Ricardo "⁠boltz⁠" Prass, Lucas "⁠steel⁠" Lopes and Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles, as well as team coach Rafael "⁠zakk⁠" Fernandes, hoping to reignite a career that has struggled to live up to the heights once anticipated.

felps joins LG as part of a loan swap deal

Having failed to qualify for the Americas Minor and decided to skip the closed qualifier for IEM Chicago, Luminosity do not have any tournaments scheduled for the following months, with the players currently in Brazil after attending the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals.

With these changes, Luminosity now have:

Brazil Gabriel "⁠NEKIZ⁠" Schenato
Brazil Lucas "⁠steel⁠" Lopes
Brazil Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles
Brazil Ricardo "⁠boltz⁠" Prass
Brazil João "⁠felps⁠" Vasconcellos (loan)

Brazil Rafael "⁠zakk⁠" Fernandes (coach)

it's history. CS in EU gets much more support, love, and money put into to it by the community/orgs. Same with NA. When Luminosity won the major (already a top 10 team), other top 10 teams got paid 10x more money than them.
2019-06-26 23:23
ok and?
2019-06-26 23:56
nevermind I guess u don't understand. Being the first at something, especially against the odds, is a historic moment, kinda like how Cloud9 winning the major is legendary in NA history, But I guess ur just a cynical kid who can't appreciate history
2019-06-27 01:12
All it says to me is u want to talk abt that at any given opportunity. How does LG's achievments have anything to do with Br CS history vs FR CS history? OK LG were underdogs and won, well done here's the praise u wanted to hear. But if ur gonna compare the history u just look at achievments and not circumstances. C9 first NA team to win major, ok wow nice. but just cuz they r the first at something doesn;t change anything. their achievement is still 1 major. so LG being underdogs has nth to do with the argument, only that core winning 2 major does, no 'oh favelas dont get paid so is harder for us' kinda shit

2019-06-26 22:18
WCG was like world cup of cs. CPL was like a major. But you can’t count ”majors” in 1.6 .. Which one of these did mibr win ONE time? While French cs won some? (To go back to the subject).

Its hard to forgive someone that has never apologized to you. Also, after kngs tweet, thorin advised him to take it down in a DM. He ofc didnt want to see kng ruin his carreer. The apology 2 years later when kng was almost picked up by mibr doesnt count btw.
2019-06-26 23:52
ok well if you say his apology doesn't count then idk what I can tell you, what do you expect, for him write multiple apologies just cause someone on HLTV said it doesn't count? kk

He decided for two years to not apologize to anyone. When MIBR wanted to pick him up, he was told to write an apology. It's to safe face, PR bullshit. If someone is truly sorry, that person doesn't wait for two years to apologize. He would've waited forever if a big org hadn't shown interest. The apology is incredibly insincere.
2019-06-27 03:00
Are you sure he didn't apologize to the actual people he made the statement towards? Why would he have to apologize to people who had nothing to do with the situation.

Im not sure what youre referring to. Thorin said he had never gotten an apology until that one specific statement 2 years after the fact. That statement was obviously PR.

He will do it to himself sooner or later
2019-06-26 13:00
I can handle a drunken Lineup at a tournament, that's okey. But as a professional gamer and person of interest you CAN'T post on Twitter "Proof it or I kill you!" That single post destryed his whole career. Thats one of the reason USA declines his Visa.

kNg is dumb. He tried to prove that FNS was accusing unjustly. Those who live more closely with him or with ex-teammates have more parameters to judge if he can be a teammate ... and not by only what he post on internet. He would not kill FNS. It's just an idiot who can't use twitter. As a player deserved a place on mibr.

2019-06-26 12:53
Felps is an agressive player after all, almost like a 2nd fer, but FalleN tries to make him play passively and he wasn't doing it after all, that's why they changed.

- felps mission to fit MIBR, and over these month he really does fit MIBR play style, when you need him to clutch he clutch like a god, saving MIBR rounds! - the only thing felps lack is patient, Fallen need a player have good patient! - some people wonder why Taco isn't the one who get bench, Taco still is a bot, but his play still have huge impact! you need Taco you get Vaco, in stat he may not better than felps, but as a player he's more consistent. - not sure about Lucas1 tho, but seem like he's one of the calm player
2019-06-26 11:03
you are dumb mate, felps is not a clucher, never been, even in interviews he talks about it...
2019-06-26 11:17
- I never say he is a "clucher", i only say he can clutch, and clutch doesn't always mean 1 vs X - clutch mean make a disadvantages situation to a win! - I've seem him many time bail the team out of a sticky situation 2v4 or 3v5, his play style is very confident if he have support from his team mate, his "surprise element" winning duel and getting multiple kills therefor winning the round. - yeah he can't do 1 vs X clutch but bad habit + his impatient make his team pay for it, fallen doesn't need his yolo and reckless style

Hoping Luminosity gets better results than MIBR... They keep changing players forever thinking that will solve their problem.

good trade

GL MiBR and Luminosity! I still think that mibr should have picked up boltz instead of LUCAS1, it worked on 2017 and in early 2018. NA faks, stop saying shit about brazillian CS and go lick stewie's balls.

IMO this team became better since lucas1 was never a good player and felps was known for being a tier 1 player before joining washed up brazilians(both times). They just need to -hen1 -nekiz +kng +xand/chelo and they will become a top 1 brazilian team.
