The pre-season Immortals roster changes continue to prove dire for fans as head coach Dylan Falco parts ways with the North American esports organization.
Taking to Twitter, Falco exclaimed great pride for what he has managed to achieve this year by coaching the League of Legends team. Setting aside the disappointing performance of Immortals to conclude the competitive season, the overall domestic success was far above what Falco expected from a new organization.

In his announcement, he made it clear that he fully intends to stick around in the esports industry. Falco is currently going through available offers for the upcoming competitive season to decide which new team to call home.
Falco has been serving Immortals as head coach since the organization’s League of Legends roster was formed in December 2015. Prior to that, he has been an analyst for both H2K Gaming and Team SoloMid.
The entire Immortals’ League of Legends roster is on the path of disbanding. Last week, Korean jungle-mastermind Kim “Reignover” Yeu-jin and support Adrian “Adrian” Ma decided to end their time with Immortals. They are moving to Team Liquid and Phoenix1 respectively for the 2017 spring split North American League Championship Series (NA LCS).
Before that, ADC Jason “WildTurtle” Tran announced his exit from the team. Considering his presence at the recent IEM Oakland tournament, WildTurtle could be returning to Team SoloMid.
Currently, the only remaining members on the roster are top-laner Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon and mid-laner Eugene “Pobelter” Park. Huni is rumored to be returning to Fnatic while Pobelter could very well be Team Liquid’s new mid-laner next year. We should be hearing about the last bits of the Immortals roster changes in the coming weeks.
As for the organization itself, CEO Noah Whinston has no plans to scrap the team entirely. In September he granted all players the freedom of considering other available options. With the entire roster making an exit, Whinston will have to build the brand from scratch with a new team.
