LOUD has announced that it has parted ways with Erick "aspas" Santos, who has been with the organization for over a year.

aspas departs LOUD

aspas joined the team in February 2022, and along with the rest of LOUD, performed exceptionally well in Brazil, securing a spot in Masters: Reykjavik where they finished second, narrowly losing to OpTic Gaming. Despite a disappointing performance in Masters: Copenhagen, LOUD redeemed themselves by winning Brazil's first international trophy in a thrilling match against OpTic Gaming in VCT 2022 - Champions Istanbul.

At the end of their first year together, aspas, Felipe "Less" de Loyola, and Matias "saadhak" Delipetro decided to continue as a team for LOCK//IN, with the addition of Cauan "cauanzin" Pereira and Arthur "tuyz" Andrade. Although they reached the grand finals of LOCK//IN, FNATIC defeated them in a thrilling five-map series.

In preparation for Masters: Tokyo, LOUD dominated the Americas League and secured their place in Japan. Despite losing to Evil Geniuses and EDward Gaming, they remained determined to seek revenge in Champions. After a challenging start in Group D, LOUD made it to the playoffs by defeating EMEA's representatives, Team Liquid and Natus Vincere. Although they faced setbacks, including a loss to Paper Rex, they managed to eliminate EDward Gaming and FNATIC. However, their journey was cut short in the lower final against Evil Geniuses, resulting in North America's victory on their home turf.

Following the end of the season, aspas announced his departure from LOUD and expressed his intention to explore new opportunities outside the organization.


LOUD is rumored to replace aspas with qck

Recent reports revealed that LOUD had reached a verbal agreement with former FURIA player Gabriel "qck" Lima. Although qck is renowned for his Jett expertise, his recent role as a flex player in FURIA means he might need to readjust. He could either revert to his original Jett position or adapt to new roles within a reshaped LOUD roster, showcasing his flexibility as needed. With aspas departing LOUD’s core team must integrate qck. Although he has some time to acclimate to his new teammates, he faces the challenge of meeting LOUD's high expectations.

LOUD current lineup:

  • Brazil Felipe "Less" de Loyola Basso
  • Argentina Matias "Saadhak" Delipetro
  • Brazil Cauan "cauanzin" Pereira
  • Brazil Arthur "tuyz" Andrade Viera
  • United States Danny "fRoD" Montaner (Head Coach)

  • Brazil Jordan "stkJ" Nunes (Asisstant Coach)

  • Brazil Marcos "Markin" Vinicius (Analyst)
