Immortals granted emergency Pro League transfer

Immortals have been granted an "emergency transfer" by WESA to use in ESL Pro League Season 6, the tournament's organisers have announced.

The WESA Executive Board has decided to update the Pro League rulebook to allow teams to make a third transfer during the course of the season in case of emergency, provided that one of the previously added players is removed from the roster.

The Brazilian giants have been scouring the market for two new players since twin brothers Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles and Henrique "HEN1" Teles requested to be moved to the bench following Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe's release, last week.

In light of this situation, Immortals asked WESA "for one additional, emergency transfer to be able to restructure responsibly", ESL has revealed. 

With Immortals set to face CLG tonight, in the ESL Pro League, the Brazilian team were forced to act, picking up Bruno "shz" Martinelli and Lucas "DeStiNy" Bullo, two former players of the ex-paiN team, who signed for Tempo Storm last month.

destiny will play for Immortals in the Pro League

shz and DeStiNy were both part of Luminosity until being replaced in July by Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes and Gabriel "NEKIZ" Schenato. During their time with the North American organisation, the Brazilian team placed third-fourth in the iBUYPOWER Invitational Spring and second at the EsportsArena Santa Ana Showdown Championship.

It is currently unknown whether Immortals plan to tie shz and DeStiNy down to permanent deals or if they are just short-term solutions for the ESL Pro League. 

Meanwhile, João "horvy" Horvath is still awaiting his Immortals debut. The 19-year-old, who signed for the North American organisation from k1ck, is currently in Brazil waiting for his P-1 visa to be granted before flying to the United States.

Immortals' roster for the ESL Pro League is the following:

Brazil Ricardo "boltz" Prass
Brazil Lucas "steel" Lopes
Brazil Bruno "shz" Martinelli
Brazil Lucas "DeStiNy" Bullo
Brazil Rafael "zakk" Fernandes (coach)
Brazil João "horvy" Horvath (awaiting visa clearance)

They might build up and reach top tier again but not with a top tier org. These guys are cancer and while its reasonable to take your chances with one of them theres no way a proper org will have them all including fnx

Sure their contracts do expire at some point. All im saying is that if i was the ceo of imt id just sell them to different orgs if possible or delay until the major. Considering the damage already i wouldnt just let the major spot go with the players

i didn't said that, i said that imt can't hold them if some org try to buy them. I really hope they come back stronger than never, but it seem improbable.
2017-09-29 02:02
splitting them up is a good idea. but i guess noone would buy only hen1 or only lucas1. theyre a package deal
2017-09-28 18:41
#167
 | 
Estonia Delan0 
Well thats true. There is also the matter of fnx. Im not sure hes included in that package though. Besides the major is probably not that far away. I can see a world where the owner can delay the deal until then. I do sound like a vindictive cunt but if these guys get to go to a major without the two other players or the org its fucked up as well

You stole my words: its painfull, you got nervous just by watching him pressing q+q everytime and them dies. The guy just gets so much nervous that he dont know what to do, if advances if holds the position and always dies changing positions in a dumb way

It's not true about drivers licence. Usually it's around two or three months the entire process (traffic classes, traffic exam / driving lessons, final driving test). And the process to get a visa it's related to the USA embassy here in Brazil. Of course the fact that a Brazilian citizen wants a visa affect the US process xD.
2017-09-27 22:30
Yah, from start to beginning getting a licence here in NL takes about 20 lessons of at least an hour each, after that you've got to sign up for the theoretical exam, which has a 2 week waiting period. Passing that opens up the practical exam, which has another 3-4 week waiting period. But as soon as you've passed them it's like a week to get your licence from the government. So your time isn't that wierd at all.
2017-09-27 23:45
So, you take the practical lessons before doing the theorical exam?.No sense
2017-09-28 13:42
Yes, Practical lessons cover how to handle the car and deal with certain situations, Theoretical is all about sign recognition and risk assessment. You have to be pretty dumb not to realize that.

That is bullshit. They weren't able to maintain a stable roster and keep control over their palyers, so they deserve to be punished.

Wtf u want him to do? Muthafuckas can't run around doing whatever they want. That's a good ingredient for destruction. Horvy on the way, and these other will have to do for now. Hen1 & Lucas1 dumb as shit for not playing cause of stupid loyalty. This is business. Anyways fuck those 3 let them go back to Brazil.
2017-09-28 06:46
Hahaha immortals t3 now maybe.
2017-09-28 05:05
Noah is fucking dumb. Happy to see his team back to tier 3 again. This is what you get for being cocky and immature lmao

Sad for Immortals, they will get 3 tier 4 players. Meanwhile the team w/ Lucas1,Hen1,KngV,Fnx will be tier 1.

Immortals reached the PGL Major Grand Final because Boltz keeps making the right call. Good IGL is more important than a clutch player.

yeah, I see that in Na'Vi.
