We are incredibly excited and happy to finally announce our new Counter Strike: Global Offensive lineup. During our search for a new team, we received an overwhelming amount of inquiries from teams wanting to represent Luminosity. It made the decision making process incredibly difficult. Ultimately we decided that in the best interest of our fans and organization, to stay true to our roots, and acquired the rapidly improving Brazilian lineup, WinOut. The team consists of rising star AWPer Gustavo "yeL" Knittle. Vinicios "PKL" Coelho will be leading the team in-game complimented by support player, Bruno "bit" Lima. Former World Champion rifler Renato "nak" Nakano looks to make his return to top of the Counter-Strike scene filling the role of lurker for the team with an exciting young talent in Lucas Bullo de "destiny" Lima as the entry killer.
The team has enjoyed recent success taking home back-to-back online 1st place finishes at The StarPrime CyborWars 2016 & Stream.me Gauntlet 3. They are currently undefeated in CEVO Main with a record of (16-0), and managed to qualify for the playoffs of ESEA Main despite having to use two stand-ins due to ESEA's roster eligibility rules. The team is currently located in Texas, USA in a team house where they will prepare to be tested early as they have a handful off online and offline events coming up.
"We are all very proud to be part of LG Family, really excited to represent one of the biggest organizations in the world. As a team we've been working really hard for the past months and this is the right opportunity for us to achieve our dreams. LG has a really big Brazillian fan base and we will do 150% to make them proud" - Bruno "bit" Lima
"I'm happy to have signed these up and coming stars from Brazil. I think it's great for our fans and more importantly a great opportunity for these players. They have a very strong work ethic and a passion to improve. Hopefully LG can provide them the foundation and environment to grow as a team and show the world what they can do. " - Steve Maida, CEO Luminosity Gaming
