Fluxo is one of the biggest Free Fire organizations in the world, founded by Bruno "Nobru" Goes and Lúcio "Cerol" Lima. It is currently based in Brazil and has reportedly shown a keen interest in entering competitive CS:GO.
The organization has been allegedly trying to establish a Brazilian lineup along with Adriano "WOOD7" Cerato and João "felps" Vasconcellos since a few weeks now and it seems that the roster has now been completed, according to a fresh report by DUST2 BR.
It has been additionally reported that Fluxo has spent quite lavishly to assemble its desired CS:GO team, leaving no stones unturned to supposedly form a solid looking roster that has what it takes to breach into the international circuit.
Fluxo reportedly spends $329,000 to sign Lucaozy from Sharks Esports
Fluxo is all set to expand into CS:GO, according to speculations, and it is focused on making the right purchases to establish a competitive Brazilian roster that can not only shine in the regional circuit, but also has the potential to break into the international scene.
The reported lineup that Fluxo has managed to assemble is as follows,
Adriano "WOOD7" Cerato - IGL
João "felps" Vasconcellos - Rifler (Lurker)
Vinicius "vsm" Moreira - AWP
Lucas "lux" Meneghini - Rifler (Support)
Lucas "Lucaozy" Neves - Rifler (Entry Fragger)
William "Xamp" Caldas - Coach
Acquiring WOOD7 and lux did not cost a penny to Fluxo as both of them were free from their respective contracts with MIBR and B4. However, the remaining three players came with a considerable prize tag, especially Lucaozy.
Sharks Esports was not willing to bend a knee while negotiating with Fluxo for the 20-year-old, so the organanization had to reportedly buy him out of his contract for $329,000 USD, which roughly translates to about BRL 1.76 million (Brazilian Real).
Further purchases included felps from GODSENT and vsm from 00 Nation, both still under contract with their respective organizations, but the amount spent on acquiring them is still under wraps.
If all the reports stand true, Fluxo has done a good job of assembling a lineup that has a great balance of senior players which have a good amount of experience coupled with young blood that possesses the talent necessary to uplift the team.
Notably, this is not the first time that Fluxo has tried to sign a CS:GO roster. Previously, it had tried to negotiate a deal with the 'last dance' but they decided to sign with Imperial Esports.
