Immortals’ first roster couldn’t live forever. Despite a combined regular season record of 33-3 in the 2016 NA LCS Spring and Summer splits, the league’s newest juggernaut twice failed to get rolling in the playoffs. First, they were shocked by TSM in the spring, then left stunned by Cloud9 in the summer. Regular season success wasn’t enough; something had to change.
Immortals almost completely upended their roster to start 2017. Pobelter was the only returning member from the previous squad. With so many new members, Immortals took time to mesh, but eventually found a groove late in the season. With yet another new member in Xmithie, Immortals will have to adjust more quickly to have a shot at playoffs this summer.
Coach: Sang-soo "Ssong" Kim
