Immortals is a venture capital-backed American eSports organization, primarily known for their League of Legends team. The ownership group includes a co-owner of the National Basketball Association's Memphis Grizzlies and the band Linkin Park (through their company Machine Shop Ventures) - among others.

History[edit]

Immortals was founded back in November of 2015 in North America, by Noah Whinston, and currently has teams in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch and Smash. Their most recent squad, formed of 5 Brazilians, has become the second highest achieving Brazilian Global Offensive roster to date, only falling short to SK Gaming.

The organisation gained the core of it's current squad back on the 1st of June 2016, when the roster of Tempo Storm - HEN1, LUCAS1, SHOOWTiME, felps, boltz and coach zakk - joined the organisation. During 2016, Immortals had mixed results. They failed to qualify for ESL One: Cologne 2016, only to then beat Ninjas in Pyjamas in the finals of DreamHack Summer 2016 to win the event. Immortals continued to have mixed results, such as winning Northern Arena - Toronto and iBUYPOWER Masters 2016, but failing to make their mark on bigger events, such as ELEAGUE Season 2 and the ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals. Towards the end of 2016 and into 2017, Immortals went through several roster changes, including the departure of SHOOWTiME during the summer, the introduction of steel in November 2016 and later the arrival of former SK Gaming player fnx in exchange for felps in 2017.

During December of 2016, when the roster still included felps, Immortals failed to qualify for ELEAGUE Major 2017, placing 9-11th after losing to the french side G2 Esports 17-19 in the fifth round of play. In response to this, and in light of SK Gaming's benching of fnx on the 3rd of December 2016, Immortals exchanged felps for fnx, however this trade did not happen until the 5th of February the following year. Results improved during this period, with a 3rd-4th place finish at the IEM Season XI World Championship and a 2nd place finish at DreamHack Austin 2017. Despite these improvements, the team benched fnx due to internal issues and played with coach zakk as a stand in for the remainder of the ESL Pro League Season 5.[1] When kNgV- joined the team on a loan basis from Red Reserve, he performed just as well and lead the team to a qualification for their first Major, PGL Major Kraków 2017. They later finished 2nd at the event with a 1-2 loss to Gambit Esports in the final, their highest finish at a Major to date. Shortly after the Major, kNgV- was permanently signed to the roster.

In June of 2017, Immortals took on OMEN as a sponsor, who provide them with desktops and laptops for the players to use.[2]
