HEN1 and felps Make Triumphant Return to Imperial’s Roster

HEN1 and felps, former Immortals and Luminosity players, reunite with Boltz and zakk to complete Imperial’s roster

In an exciting development for the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) community, Henrique “HEN1” Teles and João “felps” Vasconcellos have made a triumphant return to Imperial's roster. The duo, well-known for their time together on Immortals and Luminosity, rejoins forces with Ricardo “boltz” Prass and coach Rafael “zakk” Fernandes, creating a formidable lineup for the organization.

The news of HEN1 and felps' return to Imperial comes after their respective departures from MIBR and Fluxo. Following the departure of Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo and Marcelo “chelo” Cespedes to FURIA, Imperial searched for talented players to replenish their roster. Adding HEN1 and felps brings a wealth of experience and firepower to the team, setting the stage for an exciting chapter in Imperial's journey.

The reunion of HEN1 and felps with boltz and zakk is especially intriguing, as the quartet previously enjoyed success during their time together on Immortals and Luminosity. Their collaboration in 2016 was marked by impressive performances before felps made way for Lincoln “fnx” Lau. A second stint followed, although it was short-lived due to Luminosity's withdrawal from CS:GO. Now, the quartet is reunited once again, aiming to recreate their previous accomplishments and forge a winning legacy with Imperial.

Despite some time away from the spotlight, both HEN1 and felps have maintained strong form in 2023. HEN1 boasts an impressive rating of 1.24, while felps follows closely with a rating of 1.15. It is worth noting, however, that felps' rating may be slightly inflated due to Fluxo's limited international exposure, where they struggled to secure wins against North American and European teams. As felps returns to the forefront of Brazilian CS:GO, he will undoubtedly be motivated to recapture the form that made him one of the country's most exciting players during his tenure with SK Gaming in 2017.

Imperial's immediate plans include a European bootcamp ahead of their participation in IEM Cologne 2023, which commences on July 26th. The team aims to fine-tune their strategies and coordination, hoping to make a strong impression during the tournament. With their eyes set on a successful run, Imperial is determined to avoid a fate similar to FURIA's disappointing performance in the Play-In stage of IEM Katowice 2023, where they fell to BIG and IHC, ultimately finishing 12th-16th.

The return of HEN1 and felps to Imperial solidifies the organization's roster and creates a buzz within the CS:GO community. Fans eagerly anticipate witnessing the chemistry and teamwork between these talented players, who deeply understand each other's playstyles. With IEM Cologne 2023 just around the corner, Imperial aims to make a substantial impact, leveraging the skills and experience of their newly reunited roster.

The CS:GO scene eagerly awaits the performance of Imperial, now fortified with the return of HEN1 and felps. As the team embarks on this new chapter, the stage is set for thrilling competitions, intense gameplay, and the potential for remarkable achievements.

 Imperial's full lineup now consists:

  • Ricardo “boltz” Prass
  • Vinicius “VINI” Figueiredo
  • Jhonatan “JOTA” Wilian
  • Henrique “HEN1” Teles (new)
  • João “felps” Vasconcellos (new)
