Immortals has been active this off-season after missing the post-season in both splits of the 2020 LCS. Since the retirement of top laner Paul "sOAZ" Boyer, Immortals has parted ways with jungler Jake "Xmithie" Puchero, support Nickolas "Hakuho" Surgent, and top laner Kieran "Allorim" Logue. They had a relatively rocky summer, switching around their roster multiple times and making large changes to their staff as well. Going into the 2021 season, they will look to right the ship and have a stronger showing. Here is the current rumored and confirmed 2021 Immortals roster.
Confirmed player signings are in green. Confirmed player departures are in strikethrough red. Transfers reported by reputable sources are in purple.
Jacob Wolf reported via his Free Agency Show that Immortals is signing Mohamed "Revenge" Kaddoura, and this signing was later confirmed by Immortals. Revenge, who previously played for FlyQuest Academy, will be making his League of Legends Championship Series debut in the 2021 Spring Split as IMT's starting top laner should Wolf's report hold true. Immortals also re-signed jungler Nicholas James Joseph "Potluck" Pollock and mid laner David "Insanity" Challe. Both players split time between Immortals and IMT Academy, but Insanity spent the majority of the season's end as the starting mid laner and outperformed Jérémy "Eika" Valdenaire, who originally held the starting spot for IMT in 2020.
Potluck started a few games in place of Xmithie in the 2020 LCS Summer Split, but upon IMT's sudden dismissal of Head Coach Thomas "Zaboutine" Si-Hassen and General Manager Keaton "Keaton" Cryer after a 0-4 start. Potluck may remain the IMT Academy jungler as Immortals is reportedly interested in signing Andrei "Xerxe" Dragomir, who jungled for Origen in the 2020 League of Legends European Championship.
Speaking of Origen, IMT signed Andre "Guilhoto" Guilhoto, who coached OG for the past two seasons, as its new Head Coach. Coaching staff swiss army knife Paul "Malaclypse" Decsi was relieved of his interim position and returned to assistant coaching duties upon Guilhoto's signing.
OCE reporter, Isaac McIntyre, reported two former OPL pros Quin "Raes" Korebrits and Mitchell "Destiny" Shaw would be the Immortals bot lane going into 2021. Raes is coming off a stint at Worlds with Legacy Esports who almost became the first OPL team to make it to the Worlds group stage since the addition of the Play-Ins a few years ago. Destiny is coming from Origen (now Astralis) after a year in the LEC.
UPDATE 11/17: Jacob Wolf has followed up on his previous report of Immortals possessing an interest in former Origen jungler Andrei "Xerxe" Dragomir, stating that Xerxe has reportedly been signed by the squad alongside Raes now that Dignitas AD Carry Johnson "Johnsun" Nguyen is reportedly being traded to FlyQuest.
UPDATE 11/20: Immortals officially announced Xerxe to the team.
UPDATE 11/23: Immortals has confirmed the signings of Raes and Destiny to complete its 2021 LCS roster. Raes and Destiny last played together on Chiefs Esports Club in the OPL and will debut for IMT as the first all-OCE bot lane duo in LCS history.
