The owner of Immortals, Noah Whinston, has stated that the transfer value of ex-Immortals (HEN1, LUCAS1, and fnx) will be around $ 1,000,000 or around 13.4 billion Rupiah!
Last September 10 2017, there was an internal problem which caused 3 Immortals players, HEN1, LUCAS1 and kNgV- submitted a request to leave Immortals. In addition, they will play with the old SK Gaming (Brazil) player, Lincoln “Fnx” Lau who had been placed in the Immortals reserve seat since last May.
Immortals, as the contract owner of the three players, is reported to be making an agreement with another organization. In addition, it has been confirmed that Bruno “Beet” Five of TeamOne will join forces with HEN1 et al.
Because HEN1, LUCAS1 and kNgV- represent the 3 core Immortals players, they will automatically get “Legend” status at the next major which will be held in February 2018. This situation is very tempting for investors or other esports organizations because they will automatically get a slot to the next major.
It is estimated that in the near future we will find out who has “proposed” them. Because Valve has set a deadline for a team with the status of “Legend” to lock their roster, which is November 10, 2017.
If their new organization does not buy them immediately, it is likely that ex-Immortals will not be able to participate in the 2018 ELEAGUE Major. Meanwhile, Immortals will not play in the ELEAGUE Major because they have to drop out of the American qualifiers.
Apart from having to buy a contract for 3 Immortals players, their new organization also had to buy a contract from Bruno “Beet” Five who are still under the auspices of TeamOne. This is because the ex-Immortals have made sure that the bits will play with them.
There is one issue that was spread by DeKay, as a Slingshot Esports contributor, that the ex-Immortals will be bought by the Cleveland Cavaliers, a professional basketball team from the US. They have been rumored to be entering the realm of esports since last October 2017. Rumors about the Cleveland Cavaliers’ entry into the realm of esports have been around since last October 2017.
Per multiple sources, the benched Immortals players will be purchased by the Cleveland Cavaliers backed organization run by @Nadeshot.

If HEN1 et al make it to ELEAGUE Major 2018, this team can become a dark horse because of the presence of 3 ex-Immortals players plus Lincoln “Fnx” Lau who has a lot of experience with SK Gaming. Also their style of play that no one else knows about adds to the list of reasons why this new team can become a dark horse.
Meanwhile, Immortals is still filled with 2 of their players from the previous major, Ricardo “Boltz” Prass and Lucas “Steel” Lopes. Together with their new players zqkS, destiny and horvy. But with the issue of Boltz that will soon join SK Gaming, the new Immortals roster will be much different from before in terms of aimstrategy, or passion.
With this, the ex-Immortals roster will consist of:
Lincoln “Fnx” Lau
Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles
Henrique “HEN1” Teles
Vito ‘kNgV-‘ Giuseppe
Bruno ‘bit’ Five
