steel to Immortals for zews

November 8th, 2016 19:25

The reports coming in last week regarding the Brazilian squad have come to fruition as Lucas "steel" Lopes will sign for the North America based Brazilian squad, Immortals, in lieu of Wilton "zews" Prado.

As reported earlier this week, Wilton "zews" Prado stepped down from Immortals’ starting line-up. To replace him will be Lucas "steel" Lopes, best known for his time in the team that went on to sign by SK.


steel to link back up with boltz in Immortals 

The change comes amidst mixed results by the second Brazilian team. While early on after zews’ acquisition the team were able to win Northern Arena, the iBP Invitational and the ECS Development League, poor showings at ELEAGUE Season 2 and the Pro League Season 4 Finals were enough to sway the balance towards change.

Immortals will play their first matches with this lineup tonight as they try to make it to the Americas Minor in tonight's closed qualifier.

Immortals’ new lineup:

Brazil Henrique "HEN1" Teles
Brazil João "felps" Vasconcellos
Brazil Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes

Brazil Rafael "zakk" Fernandes (coach)

We are not racist, tnx good we hate muslims and we beat them in Bosnian war so today we live in peace without them. And that was a joke, I have nothing against jews and blacks, in fact Im pretty sure Americans are way more racist towards mexicans and especially blacks than Serbs. Btw Georgia 4Head Is it even a country?
2016-11-08 19:43
I believe you, was just joking about the fame that serbians have for being racist, btw, muslims can go fuck themselves imo
2016-11-08 19:45
Yeah man, Americans did massive propaganda towards Serbs during wars especially in Bosnia, so ppl think we are racist and bloody killers. We just hate muslims, we saw that its impossible to live together with them in peace so we removed them and today we have peace and no terrorist attacks and stuff. I just dont understand why USA and European countries was on muslim side and bombed us cuz we removed them. European christian countries bombed European christian country, idk why but fuck them.. We just realised 20 years ago who are muslims and solved that problem by removimg them. And now Western European countries slowly realising the same and now their politicians say that they should supported Serbs and not muslims.

NP gl to Immortals, Zews was like a bot for them so I see the logic here with trying something new.
2016-11-08 19:41
Sure, also Immortals is a good team that can improve a lot, so they needed a change. Maybe, i said maybe, they should have kept Shoowtime.
2016-11-08 19:46
Yeah but showtime doesn't even know the basics of CS so they needed to get rid of him.

Why pick steel? They could have, idk, tried to get one of the LG players like shz. Steel is not an up and coming pro. He blew on LG. Hopefully, Immortals didn't just blow an opportunity to improve by picking up a pro just because he has the reputation of playing on LG. Maybe Steel improved during his time away from the international scene. Otherwise, this was a wasted pick up for Immortals.
2016-11-08 21:09
This is such a pointless, lateral move in all honesty. He won't have enough of an impact to sway the drop in form. If he does, well, then that's great, but I'm highly skeptical currently.

safe to say that in hindsight immortals should really regret replacing shoowtime; he was definitely not the problem, as they had just won dreamhack summer with him in the lineup. they had something unique in that lineup, and that was lost when zews stepped in. Granted, they won Northen Arena, and had some impressive showings online, but it was a failure nevertheless.
2016-11-08 21:38
Winning Dreamhack was a fluke, i mean they played NiP with pyth so.. Northern Arena was legit though, C9 fucked it up somehow

they won this lans cause hen1 and felps where on fire, showtime feeded hard and was holding them back, the problem is they can't find another good player
2016-11-09 16:10
jesus, how can a post be wrong in so many levels... first, i don`t know what u meant by feeded hard, i need clarification on that second, "they won this lan cause hen and felps where on fire": while this is almost always true, if you look at the numbers shoowtime posted in the playoffs at Dreakhack summer you can see how wide of mark you are. In the semis against Godsent, Shoowtime topped the scoreboard with 62-50, and a 1.15 rating, whereas felps had an abnormal 49-61, with a 0.78 rating. In the finals against NIP, felps led the way with 55-40, and a 1.36 rating. Shoowtime though wasn't that far off, as he posted 41-29 with a 1.12. What does tell us? Well, he maybe be the less skilled player in the line up, and constantly the bottom fragger, but when the chips were on the line, Shoowtime stepped up his game and led the way in both games. tl:dr - not only did Immortals lose a serviceable 5th in shoowtime, they also lost team chemistry and most important momentum. If it ain't broken, don't fix it!
