Today we announce the addition of Henrique "HEN1" Teles and Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles. They will be joining the rest of the Luminosity CS:GO roster in Katowice immediately for a bootcamp. It's with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Goncalves and Vinicios "PKL" Coelho. They have been with us for a long time and become more than just players to us. Both are tremendous players with an incredible amount of passion for the game. They gave their all to our team and organization and for that we are forever grateful. We will support them in any way we can during their transition to their next chapter.
"We are grateful to Luminosity for this opportunity. The LG jersey carries a big history in CS:GO. We have had some time to reflect on the past and realize some of our mistakes. We've grown as people outside the game and it will help us as teammates in the future. We are hungry as ever. The same feeling we had in Games Academy. We want to bring Luminosity CS:GO back to the top where it belongs and make all of our fans proud. We will earn your respect and your cheer. Thank you" ~ HEN1 & LUCAS1
"Nos somos gratos a Luminosity por essa oportunidade. A camisa da LG carrega uma grande história no CS:GO. Nos tivemos um tempo para refletir ao passado e percebemos alguns dos nossos erros. Nos crescemos como pessoas fora do jogo e isso ajudará nossos companheiros de time no futuro. Nos estamos famintos como nunca, o mesmo sentimento que tínhamos na Games Academy. Nos queremos trazer a Luminosity de volta ao topo e deixar nossos fãs orgulhosos de nos. Vamos conquistar seu respeito e sua torcida.
Obrigado!" ~ HEN1 & LUCAS1
"There is no denying the firepower and experience the twins bring. I have spoken with them extensively and I believe they have much more to give still. We now have 3 of the 5 players from the Major Finalist team that fell to Gambit. I'm expecting big things but know that with any adjustment it takes time. Some of our fans may be wondering why we made this change, but I think it was clear to the team and myself that a change was needed. I'm a firm believer in progress being the secret to success and we were not making any progress as a team. I want to thank SHOOWTiME and PKL for their efforts and wish them all the best in the future. They are great people and I will miss sharing laughs and creating memories with them."
