junior to miss BLAST Premier Global Final

The Brazilians are set to reveal a sixth player as the North American AWPer won't be able to attend the European tournament with his new team.

Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson will not attend the BLAST Premier Global Final with FURIA, André Akkari, one of the organisation's primary investors, has revealed in an Instagram story.

Despite being announced as the newest member of the Brazilian organization on Wednesday, the American AWPer will not travel to Serbia with his new team due to passport issues, leaving the team to field a replacement in his stead.

junior won't be able to attend the BLAST Premier Global Final

The event, which features six of the top ten teams in the world, would have been junior's debut appearance under the FURIA banner.

In the same series of videos, Mr. Akkari revealed that FURIA will announce a sixth member of the team on Thursday, with the newcomer filling in for junior for the duration of the tournament.

Truth to be told, marke has some experience, and is not that bad. Is a pretty suitable replacement, as we don't see many other options.
2021-01-14 13:10

I`ll give you some options (good or bad) - free agents or benched players: adren - aizy - autimatic bntet - bodyy - bondik - Bubzkji ⁠Calyx⁠ - cooper - degster - Dima - dycha espiranto - fer - finigan - flusha guardian - JaCkz- jonji - jugi kioshima - koosta - larsen - LEGIJA- Lucky markE - ⁠MICHU⁠ - MSL - natosaphix - ⁠Nifty⁠ obo - ottond - patsi - rigon s0tf1k - smooya - snappi - snax spinx - sunny - thomas⁠ - woxic I think that maybe this 6th player will replace VINI regularly (apart from Inferno), so maybe a support rifler is what they are looking for.

If they are willing to speak english, and knowing that Art can awp, we can, for example, take a chance on Obo, if he wants to. We can see some other main awpers, such as cooper, nifty and marke, tho the mexican one is the only option among those that I would even consider.
2021-01-14 18:19
1 reply
They already switched to english coms with junior entrance. I don't think a good option to bring a 3rd awper to the team, 2 is already too much, although Furia mastered it as art is secondary entry awper madman. But bringing obo would be awesome, the young lad has a lot of potential.
2021-01-14 18:46
The sixth will be a player named Honda, former furia rivalry (academy)
