FURIA have announced the signing of Paytyn "junior" Johnson from Triumph
FURIA have officially announced the signing of the former Triumph player, Paytyn “junior” Johnson. The American AWPer comes in to replace Henrique “HEN1” Teles, who was recently benched from FURIA following his request to reunite with his brother, Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles, on a new team featuring the former MIBR players.
junior has impressed during his time on Triumph, where he was the team’s leading fragger, posting 0.72 kills/round and an overall rating of 1.12. He played an instrumental role in taking Triumph to the grand final of IEM Bejing-Haidan, a tournament in which they defeated Team Liquid in the semi-finals, with junior being the clear standout on the server with 92.2 ADR and an overall rating of 1.36.
