After playing with Lincoln “fnx” Lau during the IEM Katowice qualifiers, Immortals is pleased to announce that he is officially joining our CS:GO team, with João “felps” Vasconcellos heading to SK Gaming in exchange. We’d like to thank felps for his time on the team, and we wish him nothing but the best for his future. We’re excited to work with fnx in the coming days.
“Bringing fnx to Immortals represents our commitment to building teams, not just groups of individual players.” says CEO Noah Whinston. “With a long history playing alongside brothers Hen1 and Lucas1, Lincoln has slotted easily into our roster with in-game chemistry from day one. We’re excited to keep working with the young and talented core of the Immortals roster, helping to push them to even greater competitive heights.”
At 27, fnx is the oldest member of the roster, and has a long history of competitive CS:GO under his belt. With over a decade of experience and pre-existing synergy with the Immortals roster, he fits in perfectly to create a sharper, well-rounded, and more lethal squad.
Immortals has been steadily improving over the past months, with the pickup of in game leader Lucas “steel” Lopes. The team fell just short of qualifying for the ELEAGUE Major against G2 Esports, but moved onto qualify for IEM Katowice.
The team will be playing online in ESL Pro League before moving onto LAN competition at IEM Katowice in early March.
Coach Rafael “zakk” Fernandes commented on the pickup. “Fnx on the team means a whole other level of experience. He came to be a leader, and give more mental strength to our players. He’s dedicated and very hungry for wins – that makes him a dangerous player to face. I’m really excited to work with him.”
“It feels great to be back in competition!” fnx himself said. “Many people must be thinking that I’m lacking in motivation, but I’ve never been so motivated in my life. I can see a huge potential in every member of the team and I want to explore that! Together, we can be deadly.”
This change cements our CS:GO team, and we’re excited to compete. Please give fnx a warm welcome to the #IMTeam and grab your freshly-minted fnx jersey here!
