Luminosity add skullz on loan

After benching Henrique "HEN1" Teles at the end of August, Luminosity have filled the hole in their roster by adding 17-year-old Felipe "skullz" Medeiros on loan from W7M.

A previous report by HLTV.org and Mais Esports indicated that Luminosity were in negotiations to sign the young talent, with the player only having been recruited by W7M a month before discussions with Luminosity began.

The addition of skullz gives the team two players who are borrowed from other organizations. Luminosity are no stranger to loans as they currently have a two-way deal with MIBR, having loaned out Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles in exchange for João "felps" Vasconcellos.

The changes to Luminosity's roster follows a string of lacklustre results for the organization, with the team failing to qualify for the StarLadder Major following back-to-back losses to their fellow Brazilians from INTZ and FURIA at the Americas Minor. Lucas "steel" Lopes and company were originally not even slated to attend the event after failing to qualify online, but were chosen as the replacement team after Lazarus were unable to attend.

skullz has already begun his campaign with Luminosity as the team are currently competing in the DreamHack Masters Malmo NA open qualifier. Luminosity are also set take part in ECS Season 8, which will kick off following the conclusion of the upcoming Pinnacle Cup.

Luminosity currently have:

Brazil Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Brazil João "felps" Vasconcellos (loan)
Brazil Felipe "skullz" Medeiros (loan)

Brazil Henrique "HEN1" Teles (benched)

Brazil Rafael "zakk" Fernandes (coach)

2019-09-10 03:12
Too bad the the guy who is dogshit is the highest rated player on the team by far.
2019-09-10 10:41
by far
2019-09-10 14:11
bcoz of his role? oO
2019-09-10 14:53
Yes, the best players obviously get the best role in the team. Any other approach would be utterly stupid.
2019-09-10 16:03

Hen1 is one of the best awpers from Brazil and from NA scene too. I think LG doesn't need to bench him, cuz compared to all players from the team he is the best

I think they doesn't, cuz hen is very constant Boltz is a very good player, felps too, but in games were LG are playing against any tier1 team, HEN is always playing good and carrying the team. Remembering, felps is a very good player, but in awp role hen is to mutch better (my opinion)
