The Brazilian Counter-Strike:Global Offensive team, Luminosity Gaming announced roster changes.
There are two players that were removed from the line-up, namely Vinicios 'PKL' Coelho and Gustavo 'SHOOWTiME' Goncalves whom made room for the twins.
The announcement was made on the official webpage of the team where the managers made the following statement:
" 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."
At the same time the twins Henrique 'HEN1' Teles and Lucas 'LUCAS1' Teles made a statement on the same announcement:
" 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."
The reason behind the move is unclear, but most likely the move was forced by the lack of results the team has shown for the past months.
As for PKL and SHOOWTiME, their future move is unclear for the time being. More to the story, some rumours say that the twins were on their way to the SK.Gaming organization.
