Immortals bench fnx

The rumors about Lincoln "fnx" Lau's situation in Immortals were proven to be true today as the organization announced that he is removed from the active roster.

Only three months after he joined the team, Lincoln "fnx" Lau is on his way out as the North American organization confirmed that he was benched due to internal issues. 


With fnx on his way out, Immortals will be looking for a new fifth

The news comes shortly after Immortals played the Subaru Invitational with their coach Rafael "zakk" Fernandes, losing to SK in the semi-finals 2-0.

This is what Immortals had to say on the matter:

The Immortals CS:GO team has been working hard to reach the next level of competition. As an organization, we remain focused on reaching the top while building a long-term foundation for success. One of the biggest problems we’ve faced are internal issues that, unfortunately, affected in-game performance.
Maintaining a healthy atmosphere is extremely important to us. We are benching Lincoln "fnx" Lau. Immortals is accepting trade offers from other teams, and we will be looking for a permanent replacement for our roster. In the meantime, fnx’s slot will be filled by our capable coach, Rafael "zakk" Fernandes.

Until they secure services of a new player, Immortals will be using their coach as a stand-in, leaving them with the following roster:

Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes
Brazil Henrique "HEN1" Teles
Brazil Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Brazil Rafael "zakk" Fernandes (coach, stand-in)

Brazil Lincoln "fnx" Lau (backup)

i dont know his last 3 months stats but a single clutch made against a mid tier 2 team doesnt make him imune against a kick for internal reasons
2017-05-15 19:14
whatever you say, he is the most experienced, has most achievements, probably sees the game better than anyone else on the team. of course he is not immune against a kick, but the fact remains he is the most valuable :)

Seeing as he keeps getting kicked and clearly has attitude problems, he obviously does not see the game better than anyone else, so not that very mature/valueable at all it seems.
2017-05-15 19:20
Team Dynamics: Team dynamics are the unconscious, psychological forces that influence the direction of a team’s behaviour and performance. They are like undercurrents in the sea, which can carry boats in a different direction to the one they intend to sail. Team dynamics are created by the nature of the team’s work, the personalities within the team, their working relationships with other people, and the environment in which the team works. Team dynamics can be good - for example, when they improve overall team performance and/or get the best out of individual team members. They can also be bad - for example, when they cause unproductive conflict, demotivation, and prevent the team from achieving its goals.
2017-05-15 19:33
whatever, fnx is a legend
2017-05-15 19:43
Yes, we get it, you're some little faggot kid who wants to suck off fnx because he's played CS for a long time and you cling to people with experience 'cause it intimidates you and makes you respect them more by default. Nobody gives a fuck. Even if he top-fragged every single fuckin' Immortals game that they played with him, it wouldn't matter, because they clearly said in the statement that fnx causes INTERNAL ISSUES. If he's bringing EVERYONE ELSE in the team down with his shitty attitude, then he literally couldn't carry enough to make up for it.
2017-05-17 22:48
stop being a little bitch and listen to the leader you homo
2017-05-18 01:36
"cling to people with experience" haha, you fucking spastic, of course I respect people who have experience, after all its them who have spent countless number of hours mastering what they do, you have more respect for Mbappe than Zidane? wtf is your logic, complete lack of it if u ask me. the truth is, you don't know what was the problem, and neither do I, hence all of this is only speculation so stfu and learn to respect other opinions fucking 21st century liberal pussy :*

Other players probably agreed with Boltz points. I think he'll come back to Imortals but need to fell the pressure and, most important, knows he is not the team owner like probably happened stepping in as most experienced player. This team belongs to the kids and they'll kick him out if....well, maybe already happened.

Immortal sucks. They deserve zero sympathy. I wish you the best, Fnx. P.S. Not even a FNX fanboy, but I hate to see that they're benching fnx because they can't handle tournaments well before looking for a way out (which they think is removing their newest addition).
2017-05-17 04:35
Sounds like you know nothing about the context.

Explain yourself, thanks. I doesn't feel like writing more about the subject. My fingers gets tired ya know. =) But you know I'm right. Removing new additions and adding others back and forth isn't the solution I'd say.
2017-05-17 04:46
How could i possibly know youare right when your premise is completely false? You're saying they removed the player because they didn't play well enough, when it clearly was not the reason - that you can check out by simply reading this thread.

In the previous article about "fnx getting benched", they mentioned their last performance being a huge disappointment. In the same article as fnx being "kicked". To me, it seems like a big coincidence. That being said, with all these news/articles together it seems that the answer is fnx was the problem, now they gotta remove him, instead of giving it some time like most professional teams would do. Well, bottom line. We don't know the real truth, but if you read all three news, then you'll see what I mean, I think.
