Today we’ve announced our League of Legends roster, uniting top-tier talents from around the globe.
Seung-Hoon “Huni” Heo is a Korean top laner who debuted in January 2015 for European team Fnatic. A 2015 European All-Star team selection and two-time 2015 European League Championship Series winner, Heo reached both the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational and the 2015 World Championship semifinals as part of the Fnatic roster. Heo is known for his aggressive top lane playstyle and crowd-pleasing personality.
Yeu-Jin “Reignover” Kim is a Korean Jungler who first appeared on the Korean team Incredible Miracle before moving to Fnatic with Seung-Hoon “Huni” Heo in January 2015. Once key to Fnatic’s competitive success in the past year, Kim’s level-headed shotcalling and vocal presence will now be an integral part of the Immortals roster’s strategy.
Eugene “Pobelter” Park began his career on North American team Evil Geniuses as the most promising American mid lane prospect. However, it wasn’t until he joined Counter Logic Gaming in the summer of 2015 that he found competitive success, helping to bring the team its first North American League Championship Series title. Park’s flexible playstyle allows him to fill whatever role is most needed by his teammates.
Jason “WildTurtle” Tran is a veteran Attack Damage Carry of the League Championship Series, debuting on Team Solo Mid in February 2013 and collecting three North American League Championship Series titles, three second-place North American League Championship Series finishes, two World Championship quarterfinals appearances, and an Intel Extreme Masters World Championship title before departing Team Solo Mid in October 2015. Tran looks to reignite his competitive spark and bring back the aggressive positioning that first led to his competitive success.
Adrian “Adrian” Ma first joined the professional scene in 2015 and played in his rookie year with Team Impulse, finishing fourth in both the 2015 spring and summer League Championship Series. Ma brings an exceptional understanding of vision control to the Immortals roster, enabling his teammates to initiate plays across the map with an informational advantage.
We’ve also announced our coaching staff for the 2016 spring split.
Head coach Dylan Falco is a former Team Solo Mid analyst and member of the support staff for H2k at the 2015 World Championship. He will help to design Immortals’ team strategy, practice regimen, and coaching infrastructure.
Performance coach Robert Yip holds a masters degree in Sport and Exercise Psychology and has worked with both traditional and esports athletes. He will assist players and staff in developing and sustaining physical fitness, nutritional balance, and mental strength.
Player manager Jun Kang is a retired professional League of Legends player and Heroes of Newerth world champion. With his unique experience as a former player, he will help to construct a team environment conducive to the personal and professional development of the Immortals roster.
We couldn’t be happier to be represented by this roster and we’re excited to see how we stack up against the NA LCS and international competition in 2016.
