Immortals have announced the permanent addition of Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe to their team.

The 22-year-old has signed a permanent deal with Immortals after spending the last two months on loan from Red Reserve.

kNg joins Immortals for good

kNgV-, who replaces Lincoln "fnx" Lau on the roster, averaged a 1.12 Rating at the Major and boasted the highest number of kills (265) and headshots (113) of all players. According to a statement from Immortals, the player's "contributions to the team have been invaluable", and the organisation "looks forward to continuing to work with him on building a CS:GO legacy for Immortals."

The Brazilian team have the following roster:

Brazil Henrique "HEN1" Teles
Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Brazil Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes
Brazil Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe

Brazil Rafael "zakk" Fernandes (coach)

He signed from Tengri on a six-month loan deal last October (which would end in April). Have there been a extension of the loan or did he sign full-time? I've seen neither but obviously I might've missed out.

Hobbit is still on loan but gambit would be stupid if they didnt sign him

he was better than fallen. his awp was so consistent...hitting so many flicks... even fallen has not been this consistent with awp during a whole tournament.

Immortals played lesser/equal opposition and got a "easy run" to say for the major and reached the finals. kng did expectantly well for similar rated teams
2017-07-25 21:19
Fallen have to take the position of awp definitely, the others players knows how to use an awp, ok, but he is the sniper. He want to be in all holes and be in game leader, is a lot o thinks to trein, he is human and to be the best, he need focus. He was a teacher for a long time, but i think now SK needs a sniper, not a teacher.

the only reason fallen is "better" is due to the fact that he brings more for his team, but kNg has so much more firepower/

Unfortunately (or fortunately?) everybody likes him too much to kick him. I really think he's good, but indeed he's too far from other players. But he's not that bad as igl, maybe they could put him as coach (cuz, come on, what does 'dead' do?) and pick another good player to replace him.
2017-07-26 03:35

As far as I know, SK is affording a place for them at US as well. They don't need Dead as a place for living at US anymore. PS: Dead was not with them at the last 2 or 3 championships. Maybe he's not the coach anymore, and they just did not announced it yet.
2017-07-26 13:28
Its not about necessity. Its about friendship. Dead never was the coach, he give some tips. He's the manager. Camila and Dead helped Sk and now Sk give a job for both. Camila and Dead helps immortals too. They are like parents in usa for SK players, make their life easier.

Ok, but they don't need. They can even go to Germany because of the org. Plus, my suggest of to put Taco as coach was just to keep him with them too, like G2 did with Smithzz.
2017-07-27 00:24
They cant go to germany cause they dont hve spots in eu leagues... plus usa is closer from home.

i should think so... if it wasn't for him i bet they would not have made the finals... and possibly may have even bombed out in the groups. it was his plays that really elevated them to some of their key victories imo. The rest of IMT played well, but it was kNg that really brought the games home.

its kNgV- but he likes to shorten it like nbk's name is NBK- but hyphen is rarely noticed also with olofmeister, name sometimes shortened to olofm by hltv

nice

to me he looks like the best player on immortals yeah when hen1 is on point he is better but we are talking about overpall package and he has better rifles and also he looks more consistent but when hen1 is on point his awp alone makes him insane.

Poor FNX ! No love ( money ) for him ! Too much whine in every team he enters. Most probably will end up solo que.

Can someone explain me what happened to FNX? He was my favorite player besides Stewie.

Living up his life, he's done for CS for now he's just enjoying his life and money when that runs out he'll come crawling back so don't worry m8 we'll see him again in the future.

I tought this guy just signed by immortals
2017-07-26 05:10
I really didn't expect that lol ohmaigod nice
2017-07-26 05:18
he is an awper and he had the most headshots? unreal, this guy is easily best player on IMT. better awper than hen1 and better rifler than anyone except boltz imo, if they keep up this form expect him on top 20

he was amazing at the major, insane flickshots with awp and very good with rifles and pistols.
2017-07-26 16:25
Funny how Fnx came from a major winning player to player without a team. Rip fnx

Well deserved, KnG will definitely bring IMTs to where they belong, if not higher.
