Immortals add zews; SHOOWTiME out
Immortals have acquired the services of SK's former coach, Wilton "zews" Prado, who replaced Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Gonçalves on the team.
Last night Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo revealed on Brazilian television channel Esporte Interativo that SK's coach, Wilton "zews" Prado, was on his way out of the team to pursue a player career once again.
The rumours of him joining Immortals have now been confirmed, as the organization bought the former coach out of his contract with SK Gaming, while Gustavo "SHOOWTiME" Gonçalves was shown the exit door shortly after winning DreamHack ZOWIE Open Summer.

The move sees the Brazilians add some much-needed experience, as up to now they were the youngest roster in HLTV.org's Team Ranking's top 20.
zews was brought in to take up the in-game leadership role, which was occupied by Ricardo "boltz" Prass after Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu left the team to coach Liquid, though the team admitted the player wasn't happy with his own performance as a result.
"Like most, the dream to play is always there. After getting news that the Immortals players wanted me to lead them, that dream was rekindled instantly." Prado said in a statement.
"Immortals is the kind of organization that doesn't make hasty decisions. Every detail is analyzed before something like this is decided and the fact that they believe in me to lead this team just makes me more confident in myself and what I can do. I feel Immortals has everything that a winning team needs. Their pure, raw talent and incomparable passion have already lead them to high moments in their careers. Still, they didn't feel it was enough, and trusted me with helping them to take the next step. I will not let them down."
