Furia Esports’ Junior Takes A Break As Honda Stands In



Brazilian roster Furia Esports had been popping off for around three years, and they started to create chaos in the CS:GO scene especially after the addition of AWP player Henrique “HEN1” Teles in 2019.

Due to their aggressive but calculated playstyle, they surprised the best teams around whole the world and started to win some tournaments. Eventually, they become one of the best teams in the world.

However, HEN1 decided to play with his brother Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles and left the roster at the start of this year. Afterward, Furia signed American player Paytyn “Junior” Johnson as their new AWP player.

But, Junior couldn’t attend the first two tournaments due to visa problems, BLAST Premier: Global Final 2020 and cs_summit 7. Therefore, Furia Esports played with Lucas “honda” Honda as a stand-in, who performed exceptionally well.

Even though Honda had an amazing tournament, Furia wanted to continue with junior and see what will happen in the future. Unfortunately, the roster started to underperform, mostly because of communication problems.

Following such results, Furia Esports announced that junior decided to step back and take a rest at home. During this time, Honda will be taking place of junior in the tournaments.

“These past couple of months have been really difficult for me inside and outside the server,” Junior mentioned the problems. “I appreciate everybody at Furia for giving me the time and space I need to be 100% while competing. Mental health always comes first for me. Thank you for the support and see you soon.”

Honda wanted to show his gratitude for Furia. “Thanks for letting me show what I’m capable of,” he said. “I crave many things, and I intend to achieve them with you, friends and fans of Furia. I never get tired of admiring each one here and the opportunity to play with them is something spectacular!”

However, Furia Esports might continue with Honda if he continues to deliver as he did at the start of this year. Furia Esports is now:

  • Yuri “yuurih” Santos
  • Andrei “arT” Piovezan
  • Vinicius “VINI” Figueiredo
  • Kaike “KSCERATO” Cerato
  • Lucas “honda” Honda
  • Paytyn “Junior” Johnson (inactive)
