Last Dance goes official
Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's new Brazilian project has been unveiled after months of speculation.
FalleN, Fernando "fer" Alvarenga, and Lincoln "fnx" Lau will once again be playing together as the squad nicknamed Last Dance has been officially confirmed. The three players that won Majors back-to-back under the Luminosity and SK banners are joined by former teammate Ricardo "boltz" Prass as well as ex-FURIA player Vinicius "VINI" Figueiredo.
"I am driven by challenges and I think this will be the biggest challenge of my career, trying to find the right people to do what we were able to do in the past," FalleN said in the announcement video. fer added that it would be a honor to play with his former in-game leader again, "and to possibly be able to finish my career with him will be so cool". The two players played together for six years, from 2014 to 2020.
fnx was alongside the duo for their most successful period, building his legacy by winning both Majors he attended, while boltz played alongside FalleN and fer in 2017, winning multiple titles. The only new player to the band is VINI, the 22-year-old representing the "fresh blood" of the team.
The team will be coached by one of the countries most experienced coaches, Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu. "We all had opportunities to continue our careers elsewhere, but the desire to be together stood out the most," the tactician said in the announcement.
Three of the team's players, FalleN, boltz, and VINI are still under contract to Liquid, MIBR, and FURIA, respectively. Reports from ge have linked the squad to Imperial as the organization reportedly made a proposal to the quintet, but a home has yet to be found for the team which plans to compete in the North American scene.
