Team FURIA is considering potential recruits in order to replace Henrique “HEN1” Teles.
According to a report from DBLTAP, The Brazillian eSports organization is looking to replace one of their star players, Henrique “HEN1” Teles. According to sources, the reason for this decision originates from issues outside of the server and not from internal conflict.
HEN1 joined the Brazilian team on September 23rd of the previous year soon after them dropping out of the semifinals of StarSeries & i-League CS:GO Season 8. Since his joining, the team has continued to dominate the scene.
Team FURIA has been winning every major tournament they have participated in so far including DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: North America, DreamHack Open Summer 2020: North America, ESL Pro League Season 12: North America, and ESL Pro League Season 12: North America. With the team doing exceptionally well a player potentially getting replaced is quite unusual.
With the ongoing plans of a potential replacement, HEN1 is still a part of the current roster for DreamHack Masters Winter, BLAST Premier Fall, and the IEM Global Challenge in the oncoming months.
Team FURIA is currently ranked #5 according to ESL in light of their recent achievements. ESL Pro League Season 13 set to begin on the 10th of March 2021 which is planned to return to its offline format. Having such a high profile tournament looming on the horizon, the possible roster change might affect the overall team performance.
