Today we announce changes to our Brazilian CSGO roster. Please join us in welcoming former Pain Gaming members, Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato & Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes. Both players showed significant promise while under the Pain Gaming banner. Leaving the team is destiny, shz, and coach/manager Felippe. We want to thank all of them for the time and effort they invested while a part of Luminosity Gaming. They are incredible people to spend time with and have tremendous potential in the game. Look for them to make a quick comeback!
At Luminosity Gaming, after the lineup of Fallen, TACO, fer, Coldzera, fnx were acquired by SK Gaming we had a decision to make as an organization. Do we buy our way to the top or do we stay loyal to the incredible community that has shown us so much love and support, by building a new team through the ranks. The decision was easy and we acquired the WinOut team. The roster took on the challenge of Main, Premier and then Pro League with great momentum. We do our best to allow our rosters to work on their problems, grow, as we remain patient as the organization. We have a fundamental belief that roster changes at the first sign of problems is in most cases not the best solution. Every team and player will face its challenges, and have ups and downs. Unfortunately, in the recent months we seem to have hit a wall. The team atmosphere was frustrated and we could tell a change was needed. We look forward to pushing this project to new heights with the addition of chelo and NEKIZ.
The team will prepare in the coming weeks to defend their ECS League spot as well as try to replicate their success in ESL Pro League again this season with the goal of making the LAN Finals that we narrowly missed last season.
We want to again thank shz, destiny and Felippe and wish them nothing but the best. As well, to our fans who have remained loyal through this new project, we can't thank you enough. Your support for our players and our organization means a lot to us.
The starting roster is now:
Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Goncalves
Gustavo "yeL" Knittel
Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato
Vinicios "PKL" Coelho
Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes
