Immortals Roster Changes: Flame and Massacre Hop Aboard

By   /   Dec 10, 2016

A pair of Immortals roster changes from this week finally sees the North American esports organization taking form for the 2017 League of Legends season.

Former Longzhu Gaming top-laner Lee “Flame” Ho-jong and former Dream Team AD Carry Cody “Massacre” Sun have come to terms with Immortals to fill the team’s respective roles.

Flame replaces Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon who took up an offer from SK Telecom T1 last week, while Massacre fills the empty spot left after the departure of Jason “WildTurtle” Tran.

Flame began his competitive career with Azubu Blaze during League of Legends Season 2. He joined CJ Entus the following year and was widely considered as the best top-laner in the world. However, the famed professional League of Legends player has fallen on tough times recently. With Longzhu Gaming, Flame was benched for majority of the 2016 season. He’ll be hoping to prove himself once again on the international stage under the Immortals banner.

Massacre, on the other hand, carries experience from the competitive Challenger scene. He’s perhaps best known for holding the No. 1 spot on the North American ranked ladder for much of the 2016 season.

Earlier this week, rumored Immortals roster changes were confirmed with the acquisition of former Team Liquid jungler Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett. Mid-laner Eugene “Pobelter” Park, the only remaining original member of Immortals, has already renewed his contract for another two years.

This leaves Immortals with just an empty support role following the decision of Adrian “Adrian” Ma to end his contract with the organization last month and move to Phoenix1. The new support player for Immortals should be announced soon as the North American team is scheduled to play at IEM Gyeonggi on Dec. 16-18 in Gyeonggi, South Korea.

Immortals registered a terrific start to the year by putting together one of the best regular seasons in LCS history, going 17-1 in the Spring Split. However, performance levels dropped near the end with the team also missing the opportunity of qualifying for the 2016 League of Legends World Championship.
