Immortals Make Changes to Their League of Legends Staff

by Matt Best


After the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split that saw four new members on Immortals' League of Legends team, the organization has decided to make a change within their staff. According to the team's official website, David "Hermes" Tu will no longer be a part of the team.

"With the LoL Spring Split now concluded, Immortals has decided to part ways with David “Hermes” Tu, our strategic coach.  We’d like to thank Hermes for everything he did while he was part of the team.  Working with a team of five players who were brought together so recently, including a rookie and two imports, was no easy task, but Hermes handled it with tenacity and aplomb."

"Thank you, Hermes, for your hard work and contributions, and we wish you nothing but the best heading forwards."

Immortals finished in 7th place with a record of 8-10. They missed out on the playoffs by a single win behind Team Dignitas and FlyQuest. 

The rest of the team's coaching staff has been retained. The release also alluded to more additions coming in order to build the teams infrastructure. "Immortals remains committed to building and maintaining a strong infrastructure. We’ve retained our other experienced competitive staff and we’re excited to announce a new addition to our Summer coaching staff in the coming days."

From the 2016 Summer Split to the 2017 Spring Split, Immortals changed four of five of their roster. They kept Eugene "Pobelter" Park and surrounded him with Ho-jong "Flame" Lee, Joshua "Dardoch" Harnett, Cody "Cody Sun" Sun, as well as Joosung "Olleh" Kim. While the team struggled at times, they did also show flashes of brilliance. The bot lane of Cody Sun and Olleh look leaps and bounds better than they did to start the split and Dardoch looks to be settled in with his new team. An offseason to build more chemistry will do wonders for the team as they try to make their way into the 2017 NA LCS Summer Split Playoffs.
