Immortals, previously a League of Legends-only organization, have ventured into CS:GO by signing the Tempo Storm roster.
According to ESPN’s story, thus far an organization only fielding a League of Legends team, Immortals, have attempted to venture into CS:GO with numerous lineups, including Splyce, GODSENT and Renegades in the past months.
However, it is the Brazilian roster that previously represented Tempo Storm that is, effective immediately, transferring to Immortals, who have bought the team out of their contracts with their previous organization.
Tempo Storm reportedly began searching for buyers after the roster was left out of the invited list for ELEAGUE.
Under the Tempo Storm banner, the number two team in Brazil have recently secured a place in the ESL One Cologne Main Qualifier by placing second to OpTic at the Americas Minor.
They have also earned their spot in the fourth season of ESL Pro League by winning ESEA Premier Season 21 North America Finals, and came in second place at DreamHack Austin, cementing their place as one of the best teams in the region.
Following their recent achievements, Joao “felps” Vasconcellos and company broke into the top 10 of HLTV.org’s Team Ranking for the first time.
“We have never been so motivated to reach our goals and be the best. We would like to thank Immortals for this opportunity and we will not take this for granted. We are going to keep doing our work and representing Immortals in the best way we can.” Henrique “HEN1” Teles told ESPN.com.
The following roster will from now on represent Immortals:
Henrique “hen1” Teles
Gustavo “SHOOWTiME” Gonçalves
Ricardo “boltz” Prass
Lucas “lucas” Teles
Joao “felps” Vasconcellos
Rafael “zakk” Fernandes (coach)
Immortal’s LAN debut will be the ESL One Cologne Main Qualifier, set to take place from June 9-12 in Katowice, Poland, where they’re facing EnVyUs first in the newly-introduced Swiss system.
