We at Luminosity have always had a competitive approach to signing talent. We would like to represent the Americas region with the best and brightest team available. To that effect, Luminosity have decided to sign the ex-Keyd Stars team, who were left without an organisation in the week after ESWC 2015. Going into ESL One Cologne as a Legends team, from having finished in the top 8 at the last CS:GO major, the Brazilian team have a huge burden on their shoulders to perform well and we believe that they are more than up to the challange. This also means that the Luminosity sticker will be available for purchase on the Steam market!
With the addition of Dexterity's Marcelo "cold" David, the team have improved upon their in-house issues and are now looking to have a deep playoff run at ESL One Cologne. Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo will assume full time awping duties, while Marcelo "cold" David will be the secondary awper. Along with the addition of Marcelo, the team has also inlisted the services of former Brazilian champion, Renato "nak" Nakano. Renato will bring a long line of competitive counter strike success and experience to the team, and look to assume the administrative roles associated with being a coach, in an effort to allow the team to focus on playing.
To that effect, the team will be bootcamping at the ESC Gaming bootcamp house in Cologne, Germany between August 8th-18th, and will also be running a 24/7 live stream from the bootcamp.
With these changes, the current CS:GO lineup of Lex, anger, ptr, pyth, and devilwalk will now be going under the name of Mythic ahead of their own attempts to qualify for ESL One Cologne in the North American offline qualifier this upcoming weekend in Burbank, California. The LG management is in talks with other organizations and companies actively trying to find them a new home. Interested partries may email email@example.com for more information.
The new LG lineup is:
Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
Fernando "fer" Alvarenga
Lucas "steel" Lopes
Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Marcelo "cold" David
Renato "nak" Nakano (coach)
