Just a day after William "Stunt" Chen and Phoenix1 parted ways, it seems as if the support has found a home with a new team inside the NA LCS.

According to a report made by ESPN, Stunt will join the Immortals as an "active, live-in substitute".

Stunt will be sharing the support role with Kimm "Olleh" Joo-sung who just completed his first split with his new team. If the move does, in fact, go through, it'll mark the second move for the Immortals during the off-season. It was previously reported that Jake "Xmithie" Puchero would be getting swapped for current jungler Joshua "Dardoch" Harnett.

During his time with Phoenix1, Stunt was one of the three support players cycled through the team. Phoenix1 used Adrian, Stunt, and shady throughout the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split. Stunt did play the most out of them all, appearing in nine games. His stat line of 3 kills, 29 deaths, and 123 assists would lead to a 4.3 KDA which was the highest among the trio of supports. He would also see some playoff action but did not shine the way he wanted to. With his 2.7 KDA he had 6 kills, 10 deaths, and 21 assists.

Stunt, 21, formerly known as Stuntopolis will add the Immortals as another stop on his already adventurous career. He's already spent time with organizations such as Echo Fox, Team Liquid and Team Dignitas. Stunt initially signed with Phoenix1 in March after serving as Alex "Xpecial" Chu's backup with Team Dignitas.

The Immortals finished with a record of 8-10, their worst since joining the NA LCS. The team would finish in seventh place and did not qualify for the playoffs. Heading into the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split, the team reshaped their roster in a big way. Retaining just Eugene "Pobelter" Park, the Immortals replaced their whole roster with new faces.
