Immortals is a professional eSports organization founded by a consortium of gaming, media, and tech investors who acquired the seed and roster of Team 8 in the NA LCS during 2015. Few weeks after the acquisition, Immortals announced a new roster team, composed by Huni, Reignover, WildTurtle, Adrian and Pobelter. After these changes, Immortals made an unexpected good job during the NA LCS Spring Split 2016, having a final result of 17-1. However, they showed some weaknesses during the playoffs, finishing in the 3rd place after beating Team Liquid. During the Summer Split, they showed the strength shown in the first split of 2016, being 2nd after a 16-2 score. The story was repeated in the PlayOffs, and they finished 3rd after losing against Cloud 9. They lost again against Cloud 9 in the final of the Regionals, losing their participation in the World Championships.
