The Saga: September 19th

Another week, another exciting round of Immortals matches!  While our League team works hard in Korea to prepare for Worlds in China, our Overwatch and CS:GO squads continued to compete.  In addition, our Dota 2 team made their debut in the StarLadder i-League Qualifier.  Since this has been a busy week for Immortals, let’s buckle down and get straight to the good stuff: our match results from the past week!  Remember, not only does the Saga update every week, but you can follow us on Twitter or check our competitive calendar to stay up to date on our upcoming matches!

Overwatch

Tl;dr: Immortals takes our first win in Overwatch Contenders Season One
Recommended Match: Immortals v Renegades

After our 0-4 start to Overwatch Contenders Season One, we could have just rolled over and died… but the boys still had lots of fight left in them. We took on the Renegades and took a 3-1 victory.  While we’re still down, we’ll never count ourselves out.  Also, please join us in welcoming our new assistant coach: Henry “Cuddles” Coxall!

Dota 2

Tl;dr: Immortals lose our first match, but we’re not out of the StarLadder i-League Qualifier yet!
Recommended Match: Immortals v Team Dire

Everyone was excited to see #IMTDOTA hit the Rift, but unfortunately we didn’t have the most glamorous debut.  We dropped a 0-2 series to Team Dire.  Don’t worry; we’re far from done.  We drop down into the lower bracket, which gives us a second chance to qualify.  We’re not planning on missing our second shot!  Thank you to every fan who tuned in to watch our debut!

CS:GO

Tl;dr: Immortals is knocked out of the ELEAGUE Premiere by Fnatic
Recommended Match: Immortals v Mousesports

We headed to the ELEAGUE Premiere short one man, as kNg had to return to Brazil to handle visa matters.  Luckily, we had a wonderful substitute step in to help us out.  The legendary Cogu rounded out our team, and proved that he hasn’t slowed down any.  Unfortunately, we fell short of playoffs, losing 0-2 to Fnatic.  Thank you to everyone who supported us, and GGs to everyone we faced!

As we head into the next week, remember to join our Discord, where you can watch matches live with other fans and chat with the #IMTeam!  We’ll need your energy in the weeks to come, especially as we head into Worlds.
