In addition to the KRÜ player, the Brazilian organization considered Swiftt, a player who is on his way to Ninjas in Pajamas.

FURIA and KRÜ in 2022-23
FURIA's 2022-23 season was marked by the team's major change of region from Brazil to North America. In this first year "away from home", the team that dominated Brazil only managed to qualify for one international tournament, Spring Split Major. FURIA ended the competition among the last placed after being eliminated by compatriot Ninjas in Pajamas. In the Gamers8 tournament, outside the RLCS circuit, the team showed a better face, beating teams like FaZe Clan and Karmine Corp, falling in the playoffs to Team BDS. According to BLIX.GG, a return to compete in Brazil for the 2024 season is not ruled out for FURIA.
On the other hand, KRÜ was one of the most consistent teams in Brazil. The team qualified for the Winter Split Major and the World Championship, always managing to put together good performances. The team that has already said goodbye to Pedro "Braad" Lima will have to go to the market for two players for next season.
Approached by BLIX, FURIA said: “FURIA doesn’t comment on market speculation”.
FURIA’s expected to be:
- Yan “yaxnz” Nolasco
- Gabriel “lost” Buzon
- Arthur “Drufinho” Miguel
- Mateus “STL” Santos (coach)
