FURIA has officially acquired Felipe 'skullz⁠' Medeiros from Liquid. The 22-year-old talent is set to step into the roster to address the vacancy left after Andrei 'arT⁠' Piovezan was transitioned to the bench following a string of subpar performances in April.

Following his transfer from paiN in December 2023, 'skullz' spent seven months with Liquid. Although his buyout was substantial, estimated to be around $600,000, he faced challenges in making a significant impression on the team, averaging only a 0.98 rating on LAN.

'skullz' was let go after Liquid's disappointing season, where they missed a Major spot and struggled to compete for trophies. Liquid also benched in-game leader Casper 'cadiaN' Møller and parted ways with head coach Wilton' zews'Prado as part of their off-season rebuild.

A return to a Brazilian team could reignite 'skullz'career and catapult FURIA to contenders once again.

After winning the title at Elisa Masters Espoo 2023, FURIA experienced a lack of joy during the first quarter of 2024, leading to the departure of 'arT', who had been with the team since early 2018.

During the season's final months, FURIA had Kayke 'kye' Bertolucci as a stand-in, but he failed to make an impression and received criticism for his performances. Additionally, alongside 'skullz's arrival, Nicholas' guerri' Nogueira transitioned to a Head of Esports role, allowing assistant coach Sid 'sidde'Macedo to take charge of the team.

Next week, the talented player known as 'skullz' will be making his debut appearance for FURIA at the Esports World Cup. The team is set to go up against Natus Vincere in the first round. Following this exciting event, FURIA is scheduled to participate in the Skyesports Championship later this month, which will be held in Mumbai, India.
