arya replaces hades in Luminosity

Warren "hades" Rettich was replaced by Arya "arya" Hekmat in Luminosity Gaming, the organization announced via Twitter.

Warren "hades" Rettich has been a part of Luminosity from the start, when the team was still donning Mythic's colors, and took part in the online phase of CEVO-P Season 6, as well as ESEA Invite Season 18.

Despite qualifying for both finals, the team has decided to say goodbye to the long-time member after a tough period inside the team, and brought in Arya "arya" Hekmat, who was last seen playing with Area51.

In a statement for ESEA News, the team's captain Alexander "LeX" Deily shed some light on the sudden move right before going into two finals in a row:

 

"Luminosity Gaming has decided to part ways with ^hades as our 5th and in-game leader. All politically correct answers aside, Warren is a friend and a good teammate. He's a hard working player and put the time in for a lot of the success we have seen this season. But with upcoming LANs and morale low, it was clear that we needed a change of leadership and to take our play in a more positive direction. The goal is to always be improving. Never stalling, always forward. We came to the conclusion that to continue improving and to build on previous success, the answer was in our in-game leadership.
On that note, we are proud to announce that our new 5th and in-game leader for the foreseeable future is Arya "arya" Hekmat. By providing us a fresh look strategically, we hope to be able to find a renewed hunger for success and once again be able to compete with the top teams in North America and prove that we can eventually compete in Europe."
