i have no joke to post here at the top here i am so incredibly tired
-Furia was founded in early 2017 amid the rise of CSGO in Brazil. Their first entrance would be into Counter Strike, and would attend the 2019 Katowice major
-However, they also expanded into League of Legends, Rocket League, Rainbow Six Siege, Free Fire, and eventually VALORANT. They would enter the game just ahead of the start of VCT 2021.
-In the past, they have also competed in Apex, Dota 2, PUBG, and Smash.
-I wasn't able to find any reports on FURIA's revenue or equity, but they list their net worth as the total of their prize money, around 3.2 Million USD, or around 16.5 Million BRL
-Furia entered VALORANT just ahead of the first VCT season, pulling together players from a variety of teams. Entering the first VCT split, Furia would field:
-quick -xand -nzr -Khalil -txddy
-The squad would see some early success, making their way through the first open qualifier and into the first closed set of groups. After losing their opening match to Gamelanders, they would recover to qualify for Masters 1, which was regional to only Brazil
-At masters, They would win in the opening quarter finals, but would be eliminated in the semifinals again by Gamelanders
-Going into the second set of Challengers, Furia would again make a strong campaign far into the qualification bracket, earning themselves a spot in Challengers finals, and a chance to represent Brazil on the international stage
-After an early loss to eventual winners Team Vikings, Furia would have to claw their way through the lower bracket for a chance at qualification. They would make it all the way to the lower bracket final, but would fail to close out their final map against Sharks, denying them their spot in Iceland.
-During the offseason, Furia would opt to swap txddy for Mazin, their first roster move for 2021
-Furia would face the third and final challengers split of the year through the open bracket, and qualify for the second closed bracket. After recovering from some tough losses in the second set of challengers, they would again qualify for Challengers Playoffs.
-They would beat both Gamelanders and Sharks, the team that knocked them out last time, to secure a Berlin qualification match against Havan Liberty. Unfortunately, HL would sweep them 3-0, sending them to the lower bracket final against Keyd Stars for a final chance to qualify.
-In the lower final, they would lose 0-2 against Keyd Stars, putting them out of contention for Berlin. However, because of their consistent high placements, they had earned a spot at the South American LCQ
-At LCQ, Furia would lose their opening match against Australs in groups, but would recover with wins against E-Xolos LAZER and Sharks to make it to playoffs. Once in playoffs, they would beat Gamelanders to secure a rematch against Australs to qualify for Champions
-In their rematch, Furia would beat Australs 3-0, allowing only 13 total rounds across all 3 maps, giving Furia their first international qualification, to the world Championship.
-At Champions, Furia were put in a very tough group with Sentinels, Liquid, and KRU. They would lose their opening match to Sentinels despite putting up a strong fight on all 3 maps.
-In their elimination match against KRU, a team famous for beating Brazilian teams, they would lose a close 1-2 match, sending them home early from Champions, and bringing an end to their 2021 season.
-During the offseason, xand left the team and was replaced by ableJ for the upcoming split. Furia's roster for 2022 would be:
-ableJ -nzr -mazin -quick -Khalil
-Due to their strong performance throughout 2021, Furia were given a bye into the group stage. They would win their first two matchups against NIP and INGAMING, and then lose the next two against Keyd Stars and Sharks. Even with the two losses, they squeaked by into playoffs
-In playoffs, they would lose in the upper semi finals against NIP, and would exit playoffs in 4th behind Keyd Stars.
-Going into the second stage, Furia would have a much stronger group stage, going 3-1 in their group with only a loss to LOUD. Unfortunately, they would face consecutive losses in playoffs to Keyd Stars and Los Grandes. Once again, Furia found themselves in the LCQ as their final chance of going to Champions
-For LCQ, ableJ was moved to the bench, and dgzin was signed from Gamelanders, bringing serious firepower to the roster
-At LCQ, the team would tear through their side of the bracket, meeting KRU in the UBF for a qualifying match, but KRU would send them to lowers with a 3-0 sweep. In lowers, for the final match to qualify for Champions, Furia would sweep TBK Esports 3-0 to qualify as the second South American team out of LCQ to attend Champions.
-At Champions 2022, they would suffer consecutive losses to DRX and Fnatic, sending them home early

ADDITIONAL NOTE & THREADS
