Case sign new roster headed up by steel
The former Movistar Riders member once again links up with a Brazilian lineup, forming a new roster surrounded by a number of familiar names.
Case have announced the signing of a new quintet of players, returning to CS:GO after last housing a team in July 2021. The organization's new roster is headlined by former Movistar Riders, Luminosity, and Immortals member Lucas "steel" Lopes, who will take on leadership duties surrounded by upcoming talent.
Included among the new signings is Lucas "honda" Cano, who had the opportunity to get tier one experience when standing-in for FURIA's main roster at various points in 2021, and previously played for the organization's academy team.
Rodrigo "RCF" Figueiredo, known for his recent stints in North America as a part of Yeah and High Coast as well as time on Sharks in 2017, joins the lineup as the primary AWPer alongside Arthur "f4stzin" Schmitt, with both players spending recent months playing for Asterys and previously having played together on Yeah.
The roster is rounded out by a single player from Case's former roster, Yan "yepz" Pedretti, who returns to the fold to complete the team's lineup for 2022. All of the players have completed a move to Madrid, Spain, where they will play from the organization's offices while living in a team house.
"Being a completely Brazilian roster is very important for me and the club," Carlos Henrique Casimiro, Brazilian football player for Real Madrid and CEO of Case, said of the team's signing in a press release. "It is to remember where we come from and what our origins are. Brazilian CS:GO has always been a world power and we are very excited to continue betting on it.
"Betting on young talent is always a priority, especially in esports. Brazil has a lot of young talent and we do not want to waste it, but as in all projects, there must be some veteran to guide the promises."
