Immortals is a North American team.

History

Immortals was announced on October 7th, 2015 as a new esports franchise and also the new brand of Team 8, with that roster being their first of multiple planned esports teams.[1] Soon after the team's creation, support player Dodo8 became the team's player manager, retiring from competitive play.[2][3] Immortals ended up with an entirely different roster from the Team 8 players that they started with: on December 8th, they announced Huni, Reignover, Pobelter, WildTurtle, and Adrian as their roster for the 2016 season.[4]

2016 Season

2016 NA LCS Spring Split

Expected to be a top team in the LCS, Immortals initially exceeded all expectations as they went undefeated for the first six weeks of the season before losing one game to reigning champions Counter Logic Gaming in week 7. They won the rest of their regular season games, but as the season progressed further they looked weaker and weaker as a team, and even seemed to falter against the last-place Team Dignitas, needing to come back against them to pull out a win. With a top seed clinched into the playoffs, Immortals were guaranteed to face the lowest-seed team that won in the quarterfinals. That team ended up being Team Solomid, who were on a strong upswing after a sixth-place regular season finish. With questionable drafts including a Lucian top for Huni in game 1, Urgot mid for Pobelter in game 2, and three games of Karma support for Adrian as well as not a single contest of the strongly-in-meta Ekko, Immortals lost 3-0 to TSM. They came back the next week to beat Team Liquid and finish in third place overall.

2016 NA LCS Summer Split

Expectations for Immortals going into the Summer Season were again high, after they were one of only three NA teams not to change any players in the mid-season break, and while they nearly repeated their spring split record - this time dropping only two of eighteen series in the new best of 3 format as opposed to 1 best of 1 - they were indisputably the second-best team in the league. TSM with new rookie star support Biofrost went 17-1 in series, and they bested Immortals in both of their head-to-head series. Immortals still had a playoff bye, and so they were able to avoid TSM in the semis, instead facing the third-place Cloud9. In a back-and-forth five-game series, Immortals were upset and faced CLG in the third-place match, which they came back from a disastrous game 1 to win 3-2. Unfortunately, despite their combined 33-3 regular season record, Immortals only had 120 Championship Points compared to CLG's 130, and so it was CLG who won the automatic second-place 2016 Season World Championship seed from North America. And even though Immortals had the top seed in the Regional Finals, they were upset once again by Cloud9, and their season ended short of Worlds.

2017 Season

2017 Preseason

Immortals's one-year player contracts lapsed in November 2016, and four of their five players departed the team. Jungler Reignover first left for Team Liquid,[5][6] while top laner Huni joined three-time World Champions SK Telecom T1,[7][8] splitting up the iconic duo of two years. Veteran support Adrian moved on to Phoenix1,[9] and AD carry WildTurtle rejoined his former team, Team SoloMid.[10][11] Immortals's head coach Dylan Falco left for Team EnVyUs,[12] leaving only Pobelter, who signed a new two-year contract,[13] on the Immortals roster from 2016.

The new roster featured a blend of veteran LCS talent and international expertise, as Immortals signed on Team Liquid's former starting jungler Dardoch,[14] LCK veteran Flame in the top lane,[15] Hong Kong Esports support Olleh,[16] and finally Dream Team AD carry Cody Sun (formerly Massacre).[17]

Immortals's new roster faced its first professional competition at IEM Gyeonggi in December 2016. Cloud9 had initially qualified as the second-best North American team, but then received an automatic invitation to the IEM World Championship, leaving the Gyeonggi berth to Immortals. At the South Korean tournament, Immortals bested the LMS' J Team in both best-of-one and best-of-three, despite a loss to Samsung Galaxy, and qualified for the tournament semifinals. There, Immortals lost a series to Kongdoo Monster and were eliminated.

2017 NA LCS Spring Split

Immortals competed in the spring split of the 2017 NA LCS, establishing themselves as a solid mid-tier team through the first half of the split.

Trivia

  • In their second game of the NA LCS 2016 Spring Split, Immortals both set the record for the fastest game to date in NA LCS history and also achieved the second perfect game ever in NA LCS history.
