Luminosity Gaming have signed the Brazilian ex-Keyd Stars team, whereas the organisation’s former team will now attend the ESL One Cologne North American qualifier under the name Mythic.
When the news broke that Keyd Stars parted ways with their Brazilian team, it was speculated as being only a matter of time before the ESL One Cologne Legends team would be picked up by another organisation.
Such news was further confirmed and augmented when Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo took to Facebook to announce the Brazilian squad had found a new organisation.
The news has now broken that Luminosity Gaming, an organisation already somewhat known for its aggressive recruiting tactics, have picked up the ex-Keyd Stars squad, meaning that they will attend the ESL One Cologne major as Luminosity Gaming.

The new Luminosity lineup is:
Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo
Fernando “fer” Alvarenga
Lucas “steel” Lopes
Ricardo “boltz” Prass
Marcelo “cold” David
Renato “nak” Nakano (coach)
Additionally, the team have decided to bring in Renato “nak” Nakano as a coach, a player famous for winning ESWC 2006 with the Made in Brazil lineup (Nakano also played alongside Toledo in complexity).
The team will also be officially bootcamping at the ESC bootcamp house in Cologne, Germany from August 8-18 and plan to run a daily stream of their escapades.
The signing of the Brazilian team also puts the current Luminosity lineup in a bit of a transient state going into the upcoming ESL One Cologne North American qualifier in Burbank, California.
The organisation released this information concerning the current team:
“The other lineup plans to attend the offline qualifier as Mythic, but LG management is in talks with other organizations and companies actively trying to find them a new home. For inquires please email: firstname.lastname@example.org”
Mythic will next be attending the North American qualifier for ESL One Cologne running on August 1-2.
