UPDATED Nov. 17: Immortals have confirmed they is keeping support Mitchell "Destiny" Shaw as part of their LCS 2022 roster. In addition, jungler Andrei "Xerxe" Dragomir has had his contract extended. IMT's LCS 2022 roster is the same as last year in the top lane, jungle, and support positions, but will now feature WildTurtle in place of Raes at AD carry and PowerOfEvil starting in the mid lane position in place of Insanity.

 

 

Insanity and Raes have been the only two members of the team to leave publicly until IMT's most recent announcement, which is that Jensen Goh and Yuri "Keith" Jew will be leaving IMT Academy. The head coach and AD carry positions for Immortals Academy are now vacant.

UPDATE Nov. 17: Immortals has confirmed the signing of WildTurtle, who will be playing for the organization in the 2022 LCS season as the team's AD carry pending approval from Riot Games.

 

 

WildTurtle is the first player from Counter Logic Gaming's 2021 roster to find a new home following CLG's axeing of their entire starting roster and both coaches from the 2021 season. CLG is reportedly interested in signing former Evil Geniuses jungler Juan "Contractz" Garcia for LCS 2022.

Immortals has begun to wheel and deal in the off-season, making its first signing by acquiring TSM mid laner Tristan "PowerOfEvil" Schrage. Immortals has parted ways with mid laner David "Insanity" Challe and AD carry Quin "Raes" Korebrits and re-signed top laner Mo "Revenge" Kaddoura for the 2022 season.

 

 

PowerOfEvil has never once spent more than one year on a team for the entirety of his competitive LoL esports career. POE debuted in the 2015 EU LCS as the mid laner for Unicorns of Love before playing for Origen in 2016, and Misfits in 2017. POE began his career in North America with OpTic Gaming in 2018 before playing for Counter Logic Gaming, FlyQuest, and TSM in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively. Immortals is the mid laner's eighth organization in as many years.

 

A report by Dot Esports claims that Immortals is interested in signing AD carry Jason "WildTurtle" Tran, who played for the organization in 2016, to replace Raes. Wildturtle was part of CLG in 2021, but was cut alongside the rest of the players ahead of the 2022 LCS season, which was announced last night. 

 

PowerOfEvil was a great fit for TSM's identity in 2021, but it looks like the organization is making sweeping changes for 2021. TSM founder, owner & CEO Andy "Reginald" Dinh stated via Reddit that top laner Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon and jungler Mingyi "Spica" Lu are staying with the team for 2022, but head coach Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg has officially left the team and is reportedly looking to return to active play as Team Liquid's new mid laner.

 

Support Hu "SwordArt" Shuo-Chieh, who was signed ahead of the 2021 season to a 2-year, $6 million deal, has left the team after the first year of his contract as well, but his future is unknown. AD carry Lawrence "Lost" Hui is reportedly rounding out Golden Guardians' 2022 LCS roster.
