UPDATE Dec. 17: AnDa's contract has been removed from the Global Contract Database, meaning that if the jungler has a home in 2022, it will not be with Immortals Academy. 

 


 

UPDATED: After finalizing their LCS roster and staff, Immortals has completed the IMT Academy roster and staff for the 2022 season. After the signing of Arrow, Immortals finished the IMT Academy roster by welcoming back mid laner Prodromos "Pretty" Kevezitidis and support Joseph "Joey" Haslemann for 2022. Coach Tomáš "Nightshare" Kněžínek has also returned, but in the head coach position this time.

 

 

It is unknown if Andy "AnDa" Hoang will continue to compete with IMT Academy after the signing of Chad, but the veteran jungler is contracted with IMT Academy through November 22, 2022.

UPDATED Dec. 3: After completing their staff and roster for the 2022 LCS seasons, Immortals has continued to make changes to Immortals Academy. AD carry Noh "Arrow" Dong-hyeon has signed with IMT Academy, which is the team's most recent signing after top laner Michael "Concept" Su and jungler Maximilian "Chad" Lisitsa. The signings were predated by the departures of head coach Jensen Goh, AD carry KEITH and top laner V1per.

UPDATED Nov. 30: After completing their roster for LCS 2022, Immortals has also announced their coaching staff for the next season. Gabriel "Invert" Zoltan-Johan is Immortals' new head coach, and Joshua "Dardoch" Hartnett will retain his role of assistant coach. Invert has been the head coach of a LCS team before on FlyQuest in 2019, but has spent the last two years as the assistant coach for Dignitas.

 

Dardoch joined IMT in the middle of last summer after an unceremonious exit from Dignitas, where he was the starting jungler for almost a full calender year. Dardoch played for Immortals earlier in his career as their starting jungler in the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split.

UPDATE Nov. 22: Following the departure of Jensen Goh and Keith from IMT Academy, Omran "V1per" Shoura has also left the team. The departure of the top laner, who joined IMT Academy before the 2021 LCS Summer Split, is the most recent move made by Immortals after completing their LCS 2022 roster five days prior.

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.
