Immortals join ESL One Cologne list

Immortals are the latest team to have been invited to ESL One Cologne, the event's organisers have announced.

The Brazilian giants, who are currently ranked seventh in the world, bring the team count up to ten, with only two invites left to be determined at this point.

Since picking up Lincoln "fnx" Lau, Immortals have placed third-fourth at IEM Katowice and 9th-11th at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 finals. They are currently in Austin, Texas, competing in the North American city's DreamHack Open stop.


Immortals are the second Brazilian team confirmed for the tournament 

ESL One Cologne will take place in early July, with the playoffs running from 7-9 at LANXESS Arena. Joining the 12 invited teams will be four qualified sides, which will come from qualifiers held in three regions, two of which are already known: Europe and North America. Details about the third regional qualifier will be unveiled soon.

Mousesports and Hellraisers is more deserving of an invite right now. I really wanna see ropz on lan. We know immortals ceiling and we also know their floor, and their floor is pretty damn low. #CantEvenBeatCLG - look, when they are on fire they are capable of making a run to quarters/semis, then it's done. They'll never win against top tier competition in bo3-bo5. But when they are bad, they are really damn bad.

Wtf People saying Moz deserves better than IMT. Ok Moz sign the new player ROpz and shows great games at online EPL I also want to watch Moz in LAN. But IMT was semi finalist at last major. No matter people like them or not IMT deserves a spot at ESL cologne. if C9 is there, so IMT should be there too. At leat there is enough spot to bring Moz and IMT

Immortals wasn't even at the last major in Atlanta. So no, they weren't in the semis. Mousesports has a lot more potential than IMT. We've seen what IMT can do, they can beat good teams in a bo1, but never in a bo3. And recently they've been losing to teams like CLG. I'm not saying C9 deserves to be there either.

When you say Moz has a lot more potential, that is quite subjective. How the fuck do you measure the potential? Considering team get invite either on what they have accomplish recently or because of their fan-base, Moz haven't accomplish anything noticeable this year. Even if IMT loose on BO3 against top team, they have still done better than moz so far this year. Maybe in the future Moz will get some good results and make it clear about the truth level of their line-up, but right now, Based on recent accomplishment, IMT deserves the spot at ESL Cologne.
2017-04-30 17:11
Dude wtf they doing why invite these idiots? mouz would've been better
2017-04-28 21:32
If Astralis plays the qualifier, this is gonna be a HUGE event! Almost the entire HLTV top 10 os gonna be present. Astralis (If they get the spot) Faze SK VP NaVi North Immortals G2 Fnatic
2017-04-28 21:34
I think astralis said they wouldnt go to this because its so close to the major
2017-04-28 21:41
Makes sense, só invite Gambit or HR and It's done!
2017-04-28 21:51
ez or even mouz just cause im interested to see ropz on lan
2017-04-28 22:48

GG, the return of fnx
2017-04-28 21:51
I'm sure fnx is one the reasons why Immortals were invited, since he is one of the actual Champions.

In my opinion before entering fnx in the imortalls the team was very offensive and not very defensive, and without much tactics, I think that with him in the team the team wins a little more of both things, and in my opinion the exchange favored both teams (SK and IMT)
2017-04-28 22:17
It really didnt favored SK. It basically only made Immortals better because fnx now decides to actually play well.
