Roster Changes

5. GohaN replaces psk1 in Team Liquid

After benching himself from FaZe Clan three months ago Guilherme "gohaN" Al has joined the reigning Pro League champions of Team Liquid for Season 9.

GohaN previously led FaZe to two Pro League semi-finals during Seasons 5 and 6 as their in-game-leader but left after back-to-back disappointing results at the Season 7 Finals and the Paris Major. At the Season 7 Finals in Atlantic City FaZe were first-rounded by Millenium in somewhat of an upset while losses to Rogue and Team Secret meant the leading LATAM team went out in the Paris Major group stage. He now joins an increasingly impressive Team Liquid roster in what seems like the formation of a LATAM "super-team".

To make room for gohaN Paulo "psk1" Augusto has left the starting roster of Liquid as he "considers his options". Other than winning the Season 7 Pro League title, psk1 has won no other titles as he previously played on paiN Gaming during Year 2 and only joined the Liquid side just prior to Season 7. 

4. Pzd Replaced in NiP by Pino

After a disappointing season which saw them narrowly escape the relegation zone in the final playday of the season, Ninjas in Pyjamas has dropped Pedro "pzd" Dutra from their roster. Pzd has played alongside this roster since Pro League began in Latin America, initially on V3 Masters and then on Black Dragons before being picked up by Ninjas in Pyjamas just prior to Season 8.

While in these rosters pzd has had a number of notable results, winning the first Season of the BR6 2017, finishing in second place during Pro League Season 6 and joint third during Season 4 and the Six Invitational 2018, however, has had a notable drop in performance in recent months. Pzd achieved a 0.92 SiegeGG rating in the second half of the season, the lowest in the team, and has not averaged a KD above 1 in either Pro League 8 or the Six Major - a notable statistic for an Ash/Jager main. He will now be replaced by the returning ex-pro of Gabriel "Pino" Fernandes for future tournaments.

Pino previously played in paiN Gaming during Season 4 of Pro League alongside the current Team Liquid player of psk1, and the current paiN players of Revo1Tz and SpawNsss in which the team were just a few rounds away from beating Black Dragons, the eventual seasonal runners-ups, and making LAN. Following this season, however, Pino, who was then 16 years old, was forced to retire as ESL's 18+ age rule was being enforced in LATAM for Season 5.

In the 17 months since, Pino has begun making a name for himself in the PUBG scene winning a number of tournaments, however, as he celebrates his 18th birthday this month, he has rejoined the R6 scene and will debut on Ninjas in Pyjamas alongside Kamikaze, Psycho, julio and wag tomorrow night against his old team, paiN Gaming, in the BR6 regional tournament.

3. Paluh Replaces Bullet1

After leaving Bootkamp Gaming earlier in the week, Luccas "Paluh" Molina has joined the reigning Pro League champions of Team Liquid in replace of Bullet1.

As one of the original members of this roster, José "Bullet1" Victor has played alongside his now ex-teammates of ziG, Nesk and Sensi since the very first season of Latin American Pro League during Season 4. With this team, he has helped the roster become the most successful one in the LATAM region after taking the Pro League Season 7 title six months ago, however, in preparation for Season 9, he has left the team to be replaced by the breakout star of Paluh. 

2. MKing Leaves Bootkamp Gaming

Since joining the roster at the beginning of Season 7, Lucca "MKing" Coser has been a key player in Bootkamp helping the team win OGA Season 1 and finish fifth during both Seasons 7 and 8 of the Pro League. During Season 8, MKing achieved a 1.15 SiegeGG rating putting him in second in his team behind just Paluh and the seventh best player overall in Latin America.

This departure now means that the two best players in Bootkamp have left the team with no reason given of yet putting into doubt BKG's Season 9 prospects.

1. Paluh Leaves Bootkamp Gaming

Joining at the beginning of Season 8 to replace sSeiiya, Luccas "Paluh" Molina has had a mixed season so far. A month after joining his new team they became the first-ever Latin American OGA Pit champions, defeating FaZe Clan and Team oNe along the way, but has since failed to lead in any other competitions. In the Pro League, BKG ended the season in fifth place due to their head-to-head round difference hurting them in a three-way tie for third place, however, this was not for lack of trying on Paluh's part as he achieved an impressive 1.29 SiegeGG rating, the third highest in Latin America.

Just after his Br6 match against FaZe Clan on Sunday, he announced that that as his last game with Bootkamp but didn't give a reason as to why, however, with a Pro League performance as impressive as his, it is likely that he will be joining a new team soon enough.
