The 25-year-old announced the disbandment of the squad in a Twitlonger post, saying that the manner in which the team had lost to MIBR in ECS had left the players “in an uncomfortable position” despite two organisations having expressed an interest in the lineup.
steel explained that, while the match “did not represent the growth we were expecting”, it left a stain on the team, who had remained in North America with hopes of getting some good results to land a deal with an organisation after losing Luminosity’s support.
The announcement came just hours after João “felps” Vasconcellos had revealed that he was leaving ex-Luminosity to return to the bench on MIBR, though he had made no mention of whether the rest of the squad would stick together.
Felipe “skullz” Medeiros, the team’s latest recruit, has since confirmed that he will return to W7M‘s bench, while Gabriel “NEKIZ” Schenato has revealed that he is open to continuing his career in an international team. This leaves Ricardo “boltz” Prass as the only player who has not yet revealed his future plans, with coach Rafael “zakk” Fernandes having stated that he is ready to listen to offers.
It is currently unclear what will happen with ex-Luminosity‘s spot in ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas, which is scheduled to start on October 8. Sixteen teams will be taking part in the first stage of the prestigious league, which will be played on LAN at an as-yet-undisclosed location.
