Jonatan “Devilwalk” Lundberg—coach, analyst, and former player—has signed to Luminosity Gaming, replacing Keith “NAF-FLY” Markovic.
Since Jonatan “Devilwalk” Lundberg’s departure from the fnatic lineup in 2014, the Swede had been primarily occupied as an event analyst and also as fnatic’s coach (which ended late this May).
Since stepping down from coaching, Lundberg was seen as attempting to return to competitive play, especially following his brief stint in the 1337 team lineup.
In another power play move involving a Swedish player, Luminosity Gaming have confirmed the signing of Lundberg, echoing the earlier signing of Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi this April. It also appears from the organisation’s Tweet about the signing that Lundberg is already on-site at the team’s gaming house in Canada.
Devilwalk switches from a coach role to that of a player in the North American scene
The player being shown the door in exchange is Canadian Keith “NAF-FLY” Markovic, with the organisation claiming the decision to separate was mutual. Luminosity were marked as having a fairly disappointing showing at the ESL ESEA Season 1 finals, considering the other North American teams’ results.
The lineup will be put to the test immediately, having to travel from their gaming house in Canada straight to ESWC 2015 in Montreal this weekend, where the team is drawn in a group with Na`Vi, Titan, and SK Gaming.
Luminosity’s lineup is now:
Todd “anger” Williams
Jacob “pyth” Mourujärvi
Alexander “LeX” Deily
Peter “ptr” Gurney
