Immortals have announced that they will have a temporary setup as Vito "kNg" Giuseppe has returned to Brazil to sort out some personal issues. In that time, zakk will stand-in to play temporarily.
The tweet by zakk stated that, "For personal reasons, kNg had to return to Brazil and I will be standing in for some games. It's only temporary." The reasoning is vague, but Immortals seem to be in good hands with their coach filling the void for now.
Bom galera, por razões pessoais nosso irmão @kngvito teve que voltar ao Brasil e eu vou ser stand-in por alguns jogos.— zakk (@IMTzakk) September 6, 2017
Isso é temporário.
Immortals are coming off of a top 8 finish at DreamHack Masters Malmo and a runner-up placing at PGL Major Krakow 2017. They also qualified for the 2017 ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier via the Americas Qualifier alongside Team Liquid.
Finally, they will be one of the eight teams in attendance at DreamHack Montreal 2017 September 8-10.
Immortals will be hoping they can transition well and not lose a step while they have their temporary line-up for their matches. They will face off against Cloud9 and Luminosity Gaming this week in ESL Pro League Season 6 NA.
