SK gaming can't have another team in CS:GO unless Refresh remove themselves from team sponsorship. It's why they are letting SK's current lineup contracts run out, along with issues with the current lineup and management. This has been known for months yet people continually think SK is picking up another Brazilian lineup. Sorry but it won't happen anytime soon.

They were the best team in North America (excluding SK, ofc), and were better than any t2 in Europe. Won Lesser tournaments, and and had upset potential for T1 world. Immortals was an exciting team, One of the best cobblestones in the world!
