This past weekend was a tense one for Immortals—if we won both of our NA LCS matches, we would be the uncontested number one team in North America. We also competed in Overwatch Contenders Season Zero, seeking one of those sweet, sweet playoff spots. The Saga is here to keep you up to date on all things Immortals. While we didn’t have all of our teams competing this week, we earned some pretty respectable results.
Tl;dr: Immortals goes 2-0 and takes uncontested first place!
Recommended Match: Immortals v CLG, Game 2
This week, we went up against two of our top challenges in the NA LCS: Team Dignitas and Counter Logic Gaming. This was one of our biggest tests, and we passed with flying colors. First, we 2-0’d Counter Logic Gaming in a dominant series. This surprised some viewers, but we knew the hard work we put in would pay off. Next up was Dignitas, and while we dropped game one, we rallied to reverse sweep the series. We’re proud of our results, but we plan to work even harder for next week against Team SoloMid and Phoenix1.
Tl;dr: Immortals qualify for Overwatch Contenders Season Zero playoffs!
In a series of off-stream matches, we went up against three teams: Arc6, Tempo Storm, and FNRGRE. While we fought to a draw against Arc6, we won 4-0 and 3-1 against the other two teams. We’re now moving onto the next stage of competition in Overwatch Contenders Season Zero! We’re excited for the opportunity and hope you continue to cheer for us.
This was a relatively light week, but Immortals has plenty of challenges ahead. Make sure you’re following us on Twitter, where we share our upcoming matches and announce the results of games in progress.
