FURIA announce junior signing

The 20-year-old AWPer joins the team as a replacement for Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles.

FURIA have announced the addition of former Triumph AWPer Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson, formally confirming the move that had reportedly been in the works since November and allegedly cost the Brazilian organization a transfer fee worth around $55,000.

The 20-year-old American completes the Brazilian lineup following the benching of HEN1, who decided to join up with his twin brother Lucas "⁠LUCAS1⁠" Teles in a new project under Raphael "⁠cogu⁠" Camargo, also featuring the remainder of the former MIBR quintet.

junior becomes FURIA's new AWPer

"Ever since FURIA moved to NA, they've been my favorite team on and off the server. I've looked up to their lineup, raw skill, and supportive fans for a long time now." junior said in a Tweet. "I couldn't be happier to join them and make the Brazilian community proud!"

junior joins FURIA after putting up impressive numbers in Triumph, averaging a 1.13 rating in 2020 as he helped the American side win the 33rd season of ESEA MDL and finish runners-up to Chaos at IEM Beijing-Haidian North America, one of the last tournaments of the year.

FURIA's roster now features five players again just days ahead of their campaign in the $1 million BLAST Premier Global Final, which kicks off on January 19, with Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan & co. set to face G2 in the opening round of the upper bracket.

The AWPer's addition makes FURIA's lineup the following:

Brazil Kaike "⁠KSCERATO⁠" Cerato
Brazil Yuri "⁠yuurih⁠" Santos
Brazil Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan
Brazil Vinicius "⁠VINI⁠" Figueiredo
United States Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson

Brazil Nicholas "⁠guerri⁠" Nogueira (coach)

Brazil Henrique "⁠HEN1⁠" Teles (benched)

I know that its probably not gonna happen but, if they make him study Portuguese, at least for in-game communication, in 1 month of study the team's overall communication would probably be much better than with everyone speaking English (they could only pass key information to him during the match and trust training / individual skills to make decisions). I know that most players already speak decent English, but to communicate well in key moments it is necessary that they think fluently in English, a skill that I imagine will take much longer for everyone to learn...

VINI is better than Twistzz for FURIA, read carefully and understand what I mean. Twistzz started slacking and VINI does his role just fine, it's the most idiotic decision to replace him at this point in time.
2021-01-14 09:15
4 replies
I read exactly what you said. If you think Twistzz started to slack naturally and not because of the changes in the team causing him to change his style you have no idea what happened there. He bit the bullet and let his stats take a hit to be a team player, something he’ll always do. Stew and Moses had no idea how to use him properly. Twistzz is miles better then Vini will ever be in raw mechanics and I get it, to you Vini contributes outside his mechanics. “He’s a good support”, “He shows up in clutches”, “He’s already in the system”. Well the system’s about to change anyways with Junior coming in. Twistzz was just playing a similar role in TL, you’re adding someone who’s capable of doing everything VINI can and was doing while being someone who’s miles better then him in raw mechanics as well. Someone who can be even more impactful in the clutch. Someone who you can put in a star player role if need be and find success if you wanna shake things up (which would never work with VINI). Small detail but assuming they’ll be playing in English Russ would also add a great aspect of being able to naturally improve their communication and Englando. If VINI’s such a good fit why are their rumours about a 2nd man swap where he departs then? Hmmm....
2021-01-14 13:16
3 replies
I'd ask you to get back on the ground and stop fantasizing about "Russ". He's not that much better than VINI to put the synergy and their game play at risk. And currently, regardless of what happened, he plays even worse than him so you can take your Twistzz and twist away with him to some other team, this swap will damage FURIA more than it would benefit it.
2021-01-14 16:25
2 replies
"Regardless of what happened" Lol of course you want to conveniently ignore context, can't say I'm surprised when you have no valid argument. Food for thought: Furia can't be a top 5 team with Vini. If their goal is to be the best team in the world, which I'd imagine it is they need to cut him loose. I'm sure this is why they've considered replacing him already. A player of Twistzz caliber is rarely on the market, you need to pounce while he's available. Their synergy and gameplay will already need to be reworked with Junior joining, you might as well make another swap and rework it all now while you're changing things up anyways. Why do you risk it? Because you have the goal of being the best team in the world. To do that you need to take a risk like this. If you wanna settle for mediocracy with Vini fine lol. Enjoy being a top NA team which means nothings these days and never winning international LAN's.
2021-01-14 16:43
1 reply
The context you're giving is your own speculation, the truth afloat is that Twistzz lost his last bits of motivation and just has no interest for the game, excuse of roles is very lame. Good players are good in every single role. I could ponder on swapping VINI for a real good player, but certainly not vegetable Twistzz who needs to sort his crap out. He would fit FaZe Clan more, house party team of friends and ballers. FURIA need motivated and smart players, currently Twistzz is neither.

I don't think so. It's a bet & obviously a steal price to be paid. If junior turns up to be a star player it will be good for them & if they're any issues occur they can always sell him for a higher price. I don't see even slightly any possibility that not even a team will want him.

Yea I agree. In cs, communication is the key and its very frustrated to have to switch back and forth between languages to do callouts for your teammates. I'm not surprised at all if Furia got destroyed in blast next week.

FURIA is something like those new guys with shirts. That last mibr line is more like raw, old school cs. It is just not the same energy, not to mention the hype that the guys of ex-mibr are being able to play at the tier 1 like they did.
