HKE's 2016 season was average as the team floundered in the middle of the pack. They finished 5th in the Spring Season and failed to qualify for playoffs. In the Summer Season they finished 4th and did qualify for the playoffs but failed to go far and were knocked out after an 0-3 loss to ahq e-Sports Club. Their 2016 Season Taiwan Regional Finals performance was also a similar story as they were once again defeated 0-3 by Ahq and failed to make it to Worlds. Olleh left the team in September of 2016 and in December joined Immortals over in the NA LCS.
In the Spring Split Immortals was for the most part a middle of the pack team. Although they showed promise they could never break into the Top 3. The team finished in 7th place, barely missing out on the playoffs. In the Summer Split after bringing in SSONG as their new coach, Immortals' performance turned around completely and they stayed in the Top 3 throughout the whole regular split. Olleh was praised for his improved play and synergy with his AD Carry Cody Sun. The team finished the regular season in 2nd place with a 14-4 record with Olleh receiving the Summer Split All-Pro Support award. Their performance in the Summer Playoffs was also excellent as they took down Counter Logic Gaming 3-0 in the semifinals and became the first team in NA LCS history since 2013 outside of CLG, TSM and C9 to reach the finals. Despite their accomplishment however, they were defeated 1-3 by TSM in the finals and finished 2nd place. Despite the loss they still managed to qualify for the 2017 Season World Championship via championship points. At Worlds Immortals was seeded in Group B along with Longzhu Gaming, Fnatic and GIGABYTE Marines. Despite a good 2-1 start in Week 1 they couldn't follow up on it in Week 2 and went 0-3. Having to play a tiebreaker in order to advance forward, Immortals faced Fnatic and lost the game which knocked them out of Worlds. Olleh left Immortals in November of 2017 after the team was not accepted in the newly franchised NA LCS. He then joined Team Liquid within the same month.
