The Immortals have dominated esports news since the DreamHack Montreal fiasco two weeks ago. It all began when Vito “kNg” Giuseppe and the Teles twins (LUCAS1 and HEN1) arrived late for their grand final match against North which ended up being forfeit. Rumours were that the trio were out drinking the night before, something which happened often at tournaments. Giuseppe then threatened another player on Twitter and was subsequently benched shortly after, and was recently let go from the active roster. This was earlier this week, and now the Teles twins want out of the Immortals team after the two-week long struggle with kNg.
According to the ESPN Brazil report, LUCAS1 and HEN1 would rather play with kNg over their other teammates Lucas “steel” Lopes and Ricardo “boltz” Prass. kNg defied his suspension last night when he played in the EPICENTER 2017 qualifiers against CLG, the team captained by Pujan “FNS” Mehta, the person he threated to kill on Twitter. This also isn’t the first time the twins have wanted out of Immortals. According to HLTV, the twins and kNg had requested to leave Immortals before citing internal issues with the team. In the end, they agreed to stay on, but kNg made it pretty obvious that certain members of the team did not agree with the signing of oão “horvy” Matheus Rodaczynski Horvath and stated on Twitter that the team “shot themselves in the foot” by signing on a backup player.
Now that kNg has been removed from the roster, Immortals face losing their legend status if the Twins do leave the team. Fortunately for Immortals, the players can’t just up and leave the squad due to their contracts. They’d need another team to buy them out of their contracts which might be a tough ask considering their recent behaviour and the fallout with kNg and CLG captain FNS. The can be let go by Immortals, and it seems that might be the case, and the remaining two players won’t be enough to keep their legend status which they achieved in Poland when they came second. At this very moment, the twins remain on the bench alongside former player Lincoln “fnx” Lau and the Immortals have pulled out of the EPICENTER 2017 qualifiers as a result of the ongoing internal struggles.
