Immortals was previously 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 Season

These five players would start the entire Spring Split for Immortals, accompanied by strategic coach Hermes, who was promoted to head coach. They established themselves as a middling team, never ending a week lower than 2-4 or higher than 5-5. Immortals entered the final week in a three way competition for the final two playoff spots with FlyQuest and Team Dignitas, sitting tied with FlyQuest for sixth, one game behind Dignitas. Immortals won their first series, which accompanied by a Dignitas loss, tied the two teams heading into their final game against one another. This meant that Immortals could guarantee a playoff berth simply by beating Dignitas. Unfortunately, they proceeded to get swept, stamping Dignitas' playoff ticket instead. FlyQuest then only needed to win a single game against bottom tier Team Liquid to move on, and they did so, ending Immortals' season.

Immortals made one of the biggest moves of the 2017 midseason, swapping Dardoch to Counter Logic Gaming in exchange for veteran jungler Xmithie, who'd had a disappointing Spring Split, leading all junglers in deaths. They also made a coaching change, adding former Longzhu coach SSONG. This change seemed to be just what Immortals needed, as they started the Summer Split 7-1 and spent most of it in a three way race for first with CLG and TSM. Particularly key in their success was Olleh's development into one of the best playmaking supports in the league, especially when roaming in concert with Xmithie. The only hiccup on the way was a 0-2 week 5 in which they lost to last place Phoenix1, but Immortals rebounded after that to go 7-1 over the final four weeks to finish second, tied with TSM in match record but with a worse game score. Both Xmithie and Olleh were voted to the NALCS First Team, and SSONG was rewarded with Coach of the Split as well.

Their second place finish gave Immortals a bye to the semifinals, where they faced and easily swept a slumping CLG, who had barely made it out of the quarterfinals and were struggling to integrate rookie jungler OmarGod. This sent Immortals to the finals, in not just the first finals appearance for the organization but also the first finals appearance for a team other than TSM, CLG, or Cloud9 since Good Game University in the 2013 Spring Split. Immortals dropped the first game decisively, then struck back just as decisively in the second to grab a win, before losing the third despite opening up a sizable gold lead. In the fourth game, Immortals took a 10k gold lead in the early game, only to let it slip away later, letting TSM take the series 3-1. Despite their loss, Immortals' 90 Championship Points would still be enough to qualify them for their organization's first Worlds as NA's 2nd seed.

At Worlds, they were sorted into Group B with LCK Summer champions Longzhu, GPL Summer champions GIGABYTE Marines, and Europe's Fnatic, who had qualified through the new Play-In stage. The first week of play went well for Immortals, as they went 2-1 with their only loss coming to Longzhu, who many favored to win worlds. However, things took a turn for the worse in Week 2. With Immortals needing only to beat Gigabyte Marines to effectively clinch second seed, they lost. Immortals then faced Fnatic, who had failed to win a single game in the group stage up to that point. Taking a sizable lead, Immortals looked poised to win. However, when the team was sieging a bot lane turret with Baron buff on them, Flame overextended into the turret, getting himself killed and setting up an ace for Fnatic. Fnatic then raced to the other side of the map and despite the respawning Immortals killing four Fnatic members, ended the game. While this did not technically end Immortals' world run, in spirit it did, as they lost again to Longzhu before losing the tiebreaker to Fnatic, failing to make it out of groups.

Immortals were not selected to be a part of the NA LCS 2018 Season, and the team disbanded in November 2017.

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.
