Fluxo unveil history, zews additions
The Brazilian team has completed its off-season roster revamp.
Fluxo have formally announced the signings of Allan "history" Lawrenz and Wilton "zews" Prado, who join the lineup ahead of the start of the next season. The incoming duo join the roster in place of Lucas "lux" Meneghini and Willian "Xamp" Caldas, who have subsequently been moved to the bench.
With the pair putting pen to paper, the team's off-season roster saga has concluded. Fluxo previously had Lucas "nqz" Soares at the top of their shopping list according to reports by The Enemy and Dust2.com.br, but 00NATION swooped in at the last minute to steal away the services of the 17-year-old.
history links up with Fluxo on a transfer from ARCTIC, who he represented for a total of seven months — both as a substitute and a starting player. During that time, the 18-year-old established himself as the team's star player. He sported an impressive 1.19 rating across 96 maps and was a crucial piece in the Brazilian quintet's first-place runs through the CBCS Finals 2022 (1.39) and the CBCS Elite League 2022 Season 2 (1.23).
zews, on the other hand, makes the jump to Fluxo after a relatively quiet 2022. The 35-year-old previously stood behind Evil Geniuses for just over a year from April 2020-June 2021. He oversaw a team that managed to shine throughout the online era, climbing all the way to the No. 1 spot on the world ranking after picking up victories at the BLAST Premier Spring Americas Finals and the North American variants of cs_summit 6 and ESL One Cologne.
zews' only time in the coaching role for 2022 came in the form of assisting O PLANO's bid to qualify for the IEM Rio Major, when he came out of retirement to guide the roster through the Regional Major Ranking event. He initially dismissed a desire to return to competition in July, but now joins forces with João "felps" Vasconcellos once again to be the skipper of the Brazilian ensemble.
Fluxo now have the following lineup on their books:
