Isurus part ways with Jony BoY, caike

The Argentinian team want to bring in players with "other characteristics".

Jonathan "⁠JonY BoY⁠" Muñoz and Caike "⁠caike⁠" Costa have departed Isurus, the organisation announced on Saturday. The Brazilian joined the team in June, while the Argentinian was recruited in September in a move that marked his return to the South American scene after he had spent the previous two years competing in Spain.

Isurus manager Juan Manuel "mvk" Argogliosi explained that both players left for in-game reasons. "We believe that we can go even further adjusting the roles inside the server," he told Isurus' official website. "It is about strengthening the team with players with other characteristics."

JonY BoY lamented that Isurus didn't deliver on the promise of a long-term project

After the roster changes were announced, JonY BoY put out a Twitlonger stating that his departure was unexpected as Isurus had convinced him to join the team with the promise of a long-term project.

"Unfortunately, the initial idea was not fulfilled, and after three months I am informed that I will not continue in the team," the Argentinian AWPer said. "We will see what the future holds for me and I will wait for time to put things in their place."

caike posted a message on Twitter thanking Isurus for the experience and saying that he is open to offers.

During the pair's time with the team, Isurus notably competed in the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, taking FURIA to three maps. The team ended 2020 with a runner-up finish in the FlowFiReLEAGUE Global Finals, where they lost the final to BOOM.

Isurus have also announced that the team will compete in Europe in the second half of 2021 and that all the players already have their visas. The roster currently looks as follows:

Argentina Nicolás "⁠Noktse⁠" Dávila
Argentina Roberto "⁠reversive⁠" Themtham
Argentina Marcos "⁠deco⁠" Amato

Argentina Rodrigo "⁠pino⁠" Manarino (coach)

He can be 2nd awper, Jony can go IGL once again, Luken is lurker and rifler not awper, and caike is also a lurker but can play entry or luken can play entry.

Noktse is the only capable IGL of our country... and can easily fulfill the awper role, he was one of the best awpers in the region in 2019, then he gave it up to linkz when he came into the team.. Also he best performance was when he was playing with awp. I don't really understand how can you say that JonY is one of the best players in ISG, I mean he had a few nice clutches and shots, but it wasn't like an outstanding performance. And about deco, he's just insane... imo one of the best riflers in the region. The lenguage was an issue too, there's no point in keeping one player and speak his lenguage, when there're really good argentinians players benched or F/A(meyern,luken,nikom)
2021-01-24 00:37
Don’t know about caike though, must be some better alternatives than him.

stop talking about luken and meyern luken already said he was not going to compete in 2021 Meyern is in treatment and that he was not going to play until he can other than that the two of them got into a private fight recently so it is highly unlikely unless they arrange for them to play together again

Deco is the best in ISG, I don’t know why people are overhyping jb so much, he did okey for an awper. Maybe it’s because of that 1vs3 with that insane shot
