Luminosity is arguably one of the better know teams in PUBG at the moment. This is largely thanks to Tyler “Ninja” Belvis, a popular streamer and player for Luminosity. PUBG is also pretty popular at the moment, which is why the news that Luminosity is adding a second four-man squad comes as no surprise.
The all-Brazilian lineup includes Bruno “aXt” Habitzreuter, Joseph “Tecnosh” Touma, Tiago “SkipNhO” Lannes, and Mateus “yeTz” Duarte. The four players come from a background of FPS and Battle Royale style games like H1Z1. This is also no the first time Luminosity has picked up an all-Brazilian lineup. Who can forget their lineup who became World Champions before moving over to SK Gaming? They still field a Brazilian CS:GO team, and it seems the South American country is ripe full of good FPS players.

Luminosity is slowly cementing themselves as the top PUBG organization. At the Gamescom PUBG Invitational their four-man squad, which included Ninja, won the third-person squad tournament, while Ninja and Chipzy (half the squad) finished in the top four of duos. Alongside competing, both Ninja and Chipzy are full-time streamers who can be seen grinding the duo-leaderboard almost daily.
“I am extremely proud to widen our footprint in both the PUBG & Brazilian community,” said founder Steve Maida. “The Brazilian fans have given our organization so much over the years and their support is unyielding. We have put together an exciting group of talented and experienced competitors. To date we’ve amassed over $140,000 in prize money from battle royale tournaments. It’s early days and the future is bright. We’re all in and I can’t wait to see our new squad in action.”
PUBG still has a long way to go as an esport. The game does offer an extremely competitive environment for players, but its success hangs on the spectator options for massive tournaments. 2017 Has been somewhat of a testing phase as the game is yet to make its way to a full release. We can only hope that the esports experience for fans is improved while maintaining the constant improvements on the gameplay and mechanics.
