Immortals is the first team in the 2020 League of Legends Championship Series Summer Split to be eliminated from post-season contention. Immortals had a chance to keep its 2020 LCS Summer Playoffs hopes alive with a potential victory over FlyQuest in its final game of the Summer Split, but was unable to succeed.


IMT's 4-14 record gives the team sole possession of last place in the Summer Split, and because of changes to the 2020 season format that removed the LCS Regional Final, Immortals' season ends with its loss to FLY since North American teams can only qualify for the 2020 World Championship through the 2020 LCS Summer Playoffs.


A win by IMT against FlyQuest would have tied it with Counter Logic Gaming and Dignitas with 5-13 records, and since all three teams hold 1-1 head-to-head records against one another this summer, a three-way tie for the final seed in the LCS Summer Playoffs would have led to multiple tiebreakers. 


Instead, DIG's 1-1 and CLG's 0-2 in week 9 tie to the two teams at 5-13, and Immortals will watch from the sidelines as the two formerly mentioned squads compete for the final spot in the LCS Summer Playoffs. By qualifying for the post-season, the winner of the tiebreaker will also keep its Worlds 2020 hopes alive.



Immortals looked better after firing Head Coach Thomas "Zaboutine" Si-Hassen and General Manager Keaton "Keaton" Cryer and starting Top Laner Kieran "Allorim" Logue, Jungler Jake "Xmithie" Puchero, Mid Laner David "Insanity" Challe, AD Carry Apollo "Apollo" Price, and Support Nickolas "Hakuho" Surgent, but even with an impressive LCS debut from Insanity, the results didn't translate for the team to overcome an 0-4 start to the Summer Split. IMT's season is over.
