junior will take the place of the previously retired Bears  Peter "ptr" Gurney in The Bad News.

Johnson has been on FURIA's roster since early June of this year. He was dismissed from the Brazilian team's main roster after six months of performing on the high level in Europe. The reason for the transfer of the young American to the reserves was his psychological burnout, which forced the player to return home to the United States to recover.

The prestigious ESL Pro League Season 14 begins on August 16 for the Bad News Bears. Heroic, Astralis, Vitality, Team Spirit and ENCE will play in the same group as Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman's squad.
