Team Immortals has finalized its roster just before the upcoming roster lock by adding NA Mid player, Eric "Ryoya" Dong and fellow Korean offlaner Kim "Velo" Tae-sung. And releasing offlane player Arif “MSS” Anwar from the team.

This will be Velo’s 2nd stint with Febby, DuBu, and MP after playing with them in the Boston Major 2016. Ryoya left Team VGJ Storm on his own accord to join the Immortals roster.

Team Immortals have had constant roster shuffles ever since QO announced an indefinite break from competitive Dota 2 which lead to Forev's departure from the NA based team. 

“Ryoya and Velo are both younger talents eager to prove themselves on a bigger stage,” said Dota 2 Team Manager Joshua Arkin in a statement on their website “I’m excited to watch our team grow stronger together as we head into the final roster lock period before The International.”
Hence Immortals active roster is now:
  • Pyo “MP” No-a
  • Eric “Ryoya” Dong
  • Kim “Velo” Tae-Sung
  • Kim “Febby” Yong-min
  • Kim “DuBu” Doo-young
For this season, Immortals will be looking to secure those important Minor/Major qualifier spots. But this team, on paper, doesn’t look like it is capable of challenging the top teams in the NA Qualifiers to achieve that. With the recent emergence of strong teams like Animal Planet, Optic Gaming, VGJ Storm and Complexity it is going to take a mammoth effort from Immortals to qualify for a Valve event.
