honda to step in for FURIA in cs_summit 7

The 20-year-old will play his second tournament for FURIA after making his debut in the BLAST Premier Global Final.

FURIA are set to once again utilise their sixth player, Lucas "⁠honda⁠" Cano, in their cs_summit 7 tournament bid as Paytyn "⁠junior⁠" Johnson remains sidelined in North America due to passport and document issues, HLTV.org has confirmed.

junior's absence will be felt by FURIA as Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan was forced to fill the AWP role during BLAST, limiting the Brazilian captain's impact and playmaking ability - a critical piece of FURIA's style and approach to the game.

honda will play his second tournament under the FURIA banner

honda averaged a 0.80 rating over six maps in FURIA's BLAST campaign, with the team narrowly falling to G2 and Evil Geniuses to exit the tournament in last place. Despite his lacklustre statistical performance, honda still produced some good moments, scoring three aces in his debut showing against top-tier competition.

The baptism of fire for FURIA's sixth player will continue in cs_summit 7 as seven of the top 20 teams in the world will be in attendance, with the entire field of teams being fresh faces for the newcomer. The $200,000 tournament is slated to run from January 25-31, and will utilise a best-of-three GSL group stage to determine which teams advance to the single-elimination playoff stage.

He is not the awper lol, it was HEN1 and now it is supposed to be junior. arT idiotic aggression will be limited now that he will be focusing on being the main awper.

0/8 They were top 5 playing on LAN with Ablej and Art being awper, beat Astralis 2x on LAN, stop hating furia and being delusional. Hen1 and Kscerato are baiters, Yuurih and arT are the real reason furia is good.

lol, well he is the main awper you retard. Furia run 2 awp setups when HEN1 was there and art always has played awp. nt though, go stick to watching minecraft
2021-01-24 19:29
arT is a main awper but when the ssg was buffed he saw the opportunity to be more effective being agressive with rifle, so he adapted his gameplay and Hen1 came to be the first awp. You probably didn't watch much more CS then who you judges in the forum...
