KILLDREAM leaves Giants

Joao "KILLDREAM" Ferreira is no longer part of Giants, the Portuguese player has announced on Twitter.

The Portuguese squad have been inactive since late June, when they finished their runs in the third season of Masters League Portugal and in Superliga Orange Finals with semi-finals finishes in both local leagues after losses to GTZ-Bulls and Movistar Riders, respectively.

They have since parted ways with Luís "ZELIN" Lousada, who was removed from the squad at the beginning of July, and now KILLDREAM follows suit as he leaves the Spanish organization and looks for a new team.

KILLDREAM no longer with Giants

The 26-year-old had been benched by Giants in February in order to make room for ZELIN, before getting readded to the squad less than two months later, replacing Rui "RIZZZ" Lima in the lineup.

The Portuguese side's only LAN showing outside of the local scene in 2019 was at BLAST Pro Series Madrid, where they finished last in the group stage with a 1-0-4 record, defeating NiP and contesting the former Cloud9 roster and ENCE in close matches.

KILLDREAM's departure leaves Giants with the following trio:

Does the Entry Killer need to frag 30+? The entry fragger is usually the bottom fragger because he's the first man entering the sites... Top fragging isn't the role of an entry killer, the role of an entry killer is to unlock the site so the rest of the team can go forward.
