  • League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) team, Immortals unveiled its 2024 roster
  • The LCS squad completed its lineup on Saturday, November 25, 2023
  • The new-look roster will feature a Korean import
On Saturday, November 25, the North American League of Legends team Immortals unveiled its new roster. As announced by the LoL Championship Series (LCS) team, Immortals will field almost an entirely new lineup, with ADC Edward "Tactical" Ra as the only carryover from the 2023 season.

On Saturday, Immortals confirmed new additions to its LCS roster, including top laner Cho "Castle" Hyeon-seong, jungler Jonathan "Armao" Armao, mid laner Lee "Mask" Sang-hun, and support Kim "Olleh" Joo-sung. With that, Immortals is set to field four new players in the LCS 2024 season – all but ADC Tactical, the only surviving player from the last season.

The major roster overhaul comes following a disappointing ending to the LCS 2023 season when Immortals failed to make much noise. And even that's an understatement.

Immortals ended the LCS 2023 Spring in ninth place with a 4-14 record and fell even further in the summer split, which Immortals finished in last place with a 5-13 record. Even in the 2022 season, Immortals failed to show much, with 10th and ninth-place finishes across the two splits.

In a bid to find more success, Immortals hit a reset button for the next year and added a Korean top side, with the addition of an LCK Challenger player, Castle. The 21-year-old started his esports career in September 2020 with KT Rolster's academy team and has last split, helped the squad claim a bronze medal from LCK CL 2023 Spring Playoffs and ended the season with a fifth-place finish in the summer regular season.

Mid laner Mask is another Korean player who will make his debut in the North American league. He has recently played for Unicorns of Love Sexy Edition in Germany, where he won RM Pokal 2023. Before leaving for Europe, Mask has played for Hanwha Life and KT Rolster Challengers teams.

Familiar Faces Join Immortals

Other than two Korean imports, Immortals will field familiar faces for LCS fans. That includes jungler Armao, who has previously spent a long stint with TSM and also played for other prominent LCS squads, including Dignitas, Team Liquid, and Evil Geniuses, who he was a part of in 2023.

Joining Armao is another LCS veteran, Olleh, who will return to Immortals after seven years. He played for the organisation in the 2017 season and has since represented Team Liquid and Golden Guardians.

Tactical needs no special introduction for Immortals fans. The 23-year-old ADC joined Immortals from TSM in December 2022 and will continue his journey with the team for at least one more year despite the team failing to accomplish much in 2022.

Adding some fresh blood to the team might help Immortals improve in the upcoming season, which should prove to be more competitive following the departure of two organisations, which leaves the LCS with just eight teams. However, it remains to be seen whether the changes will help Immortals find any success and compete for the LCS crown.
