Milan Švejda aka Striker, the Editor-in-chief of HLTV, addresses the reports suggesting the SK-Luminosity core reunion might be a bad idea.
The entire CSGO community felt excited when reports of Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo and Marcelo “coldzera” David joining forces for a new Brazilian project broke out. The fans of the pair quickly jumped in at the idea of the highly successful SK-Luminosity getting back together, but Svejda did not share that school of thought. In his piece, Striker thoroughly goes point by point as to why this big reunion might fall flat and fans should not be as excited as they are.
According to reports, FalleN and coldzera will be joined by Fernando “fer” Alvarenga and Lincoln “fnx” Lau with whom they enjoyed their most successful years. On paper, this might look like a dream reunion, but the reality is far from it. Besides coldzera and FalleN who looked questionable in terms of their form in recent years, fer and fnx are well past their primes and even with a young upstart in their team, it is hard to imagine them getting back to a level where they are a threat to the top teams.
“FalleN and coldzera have managed to stay relevant at the top, but both have been shadows of their former selves on an individual level in recent years after hitting their peak form in 2016-2017. fer has only declined since the best years of Brazilian CS as well, and he hasn’t even played in the biggest tournaments since 2020, while fnx last appeared at a big event three and a half years ago.” read the article.
As Striker pointed out, legendary rosters getting back never worked out in the history of the game and for this line-up to work out will take something absolutely special, or this might turn out to be another Dignitas.
