honda to play final event for FURIA in ESL Pro League Season 14

The 21-year-old will have one last ride with FURIA before shifting to the organisation's academy roster.

FURIA will play ESL Pro League Season 14 with Lucas "⁠honda⁠" Cano, head coach Nicholas "⁠guerri⁠" Nogueira has announced. The Brazilian organisation revealed on Monday that André "⁠drop⁠" Abreu would be promoted from FURIA Academy to take honda's place on the main roster, with the new composition planning to debut in ESL Pro League.

However, as drop was not registered on FURIA's official roster for the tournament and they were outside of the transfer deadline, the team required an emergency transfer request to be granted by ESL in order to field their new addition.

honda will play his final tournament for FURIA's main roster in EPL

With the transfer request being rejected, FURIA have opted to fly honda in for one final event with the main roster, who will take on Entropiq on September 1 at 16:45 for their opening match of Group D.

drop's first appearance with the team has been postponed until FURIA's next tournament, although the organisation previously confirmed that they will continue to search for a permanent fifth moving forward.

Notably, drop is currently ineligible to compete in Valve tournaments due to owning a VAC-banned account, which he confessed was caused by using a skin changer tool when he was 12. The ban from Valve events is set to elapse on September 7, 2021 after the game developer updated its eligibility rules in April, leaving drop free to compete across the circuit.

Yeah... should we arrest 12 years old kids for stealing candy from a grocery store? eletrical chair, maybe? He was 12 years old, dont fuck his carreer because of something he did back then.

Is a fact that is possible to get banned bcuz of skin changer, do you really think that Valve approves you to use skin changer instead of buying the skin on their marketplace?

tbh it's so random, who would have thought that G2 would go 0-5 and ruin my group A and B lmao, I think I'll give honda a chance, maybe #8 is right. I just don't want to change my 4 good silver players for cheap bronzes from some not really perspective teams

Yea i agree about the randomness dude. Only thing i can say is dont value bronze/silver/gold too much since hltv are noobs and they make those categories. Lesser players from good teams can rly make u points if those teams perform well

Their core is top 6-10 material, they just need a proper 5th player, not these academy kids, they couldn't even hang with other academy teams in Europe, why the hell would they play well vs t1 and t2 teams?? FURIA is being dumb as hell. coldzera or safee would make them an elite team again.
