With the news breaking that MIBR had officially revealed Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles as their fifth player, the destination of the departing João “felps” Vasconcellos has been announced.
Hours after LUCAS1 joined MIBR, Luminosity welcomed felps to the organization. Both players are only being sent out on loan at this time and the potential contracts will be reevaluated following the StarLadder Major in Berlin.
felps is familiar with most of the lineup, having played alongside Ricardo “boltz” Prass, Lucas “steel” Lopes and Henrique “HEN1” Teles. In addition, he has played under Rafael “zakk” Fernandes’ leadership as coach before. On a side note, this will be the first time HEN1 plays without his twin brother, LUCAS1.
Luminosity most recently went out 0-2 at the ESL Pro League season 9 finals. Losing their opening match against HellRaisers 16-7 put them in a best-of-three decider against MIBR in which they fell 16-9 and 16-13 respectively.
At the current time, Luminosity’s schedule is wide open as they failed to qualify for the Americas Minor and elected not to attend the IEM Chicago closed qualifier. Luminosity lost to fellow Brazilian squad TeamOne in the Americas Minor closed qualifier to be eliminated.
