Furia recently announced the signing of Brazilian CS legend, Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo. They have finalized the roster ahead of the fall season with Marcelo “Chelo” Cespedes as well. The roster was initially leaked when it appeared in an advertisement in Times Square in New York, shortly after which the organization officially announced its latest addition to the team.
During his time at Imperial, Chelo averaged a 1.04 rating, putting up strong, but inconsistent performances across his tenure. With the help of Chelo, Imperial qualified for the IEM Rio Major and also made it to the semi-finals of the BLAST Spring Finals.
Furia Announces The Arrival Of FalleN And chelo
Despite having the "best" Brazilian roster, Furia seemed to struggle in the last few seasons of professional Counter-Strike. As a result, they announced the departure of awper Rafael “Saffee” Costa and supporting rifler Andre “Drop” Abreu from the team. After a decent Major run at Rio, Furia faltered in the playoffs, losing in the semi-finals to Heroic. With no trophies and a string of eliminations, changes had to be made
The Godfather of Brazilian CS, Fallen, was having a turbulent time at Imperial as well. Until he led his team to the BLAST Spring Finals, making it all the way to the semis. When asked about retirement, FalleN claimed:
“People ask me how long I’ll keep playing and the truth is there’s no right limit. I listen to the fans and hear again a call to make history once more. And this time, wearing the colors of the panther [FURIA’s logo].”
Furia's roster now looks like this:
- Andrei "arT" Piovezan
- Yuri "yuurih" Santos
- Kaike "KSCERATO" Cerato
- Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo
- Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes
- Nicholas "guerri" Nogueira (coach)
Now that Furia has their missing pieces in place, hopes are high for the Brazilian roster.
