ex-Luminosity roster splits up

The players from ex-Luminosity have decided to go their separate ways, Lucas "steel" Lopes has confirmed.

The 25-year-old announced the disbandment of the squad in a Twitlonger post, saying that the manner in which the team had lost to MIBR in ECS had left the players "in an uncomfortable position" despite two organisations having expressed an interest in the lineup.

steel explained that, while the match "did not represent the growth we were expecting", it left a stain on the team, who had remained in North America with hopes of getting some good results to land a deal with an organisation after losing Luminosity's support.

boltz and steel on the lookout for a new challenge

The announcement came just hours after João "felps" Vasconcellos had revealed that he was leaving ex-Luminosity to return to the bench on MIBR, though he had made no mention of whether the rest of the squad would stick together.

Felipe "skullz" Medeiros, the team's latest recruit, has since confirmed that he will return to W7M's bench, while Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato has revealed that he is open to continuing his career in an international team. This leaves Ricardo "boltz" Prass as the only player who has not yet revealed his future plans, with coach Rafael "zakk" Fernandes having stated that he is ready to listen to offers.

It is currently unclear what will happen with ex-Luminosity's spot in ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas, which is scheduled to start on October 8. Sixteen teams will be taking part in the first stage of the prestigious league, which will be played on LAN at an as-yet-undisclosed location.

ex-Luminosity had the following members:

Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes
Brazil Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Brazil Felipe "skullz" Medeiros (loan from W7M)
Brazil João "felps" Vasconcellos (loan from MIBR)

Brazil Rafael "zakk" Fernandes (coach)

2019-10-02 00:34
they also never beat them on LAN in a tournament of importance. lots of shit teams have never lost to teams that are better than them. Sharks isn't even shit, but if they were actually better than Liquid then obviously they would be attending these huge tournaments instead of losing to random NA/EU teams in quals, now wouldn't they?

I still don't understand how Nekiz was on that team for so long. ... Considering the roles of the others, he had no place on the team. And he hasn't really been that good for well over a year.

I need unnecessary comments that make people who are struggling to win within the cs go of people who are nothing and want to hurt those who still struggle to win.
