Immortals & Tempo Storm Unite?
Immortals, one of League of Legends’ most established teams has ventured down a new
path today, after announcing that they signed the budding roster of Tempo Storm.
The news was first announced on ESPN, and according to them, Immortals have began to
have talks with a number of smaller CS:GO teams, including Splyce, GODSENT and
Renegades. It looks like they are trying to take over the CS:GO Scene by signing some of the
growing teams of 2015-16.
Ex-Tempo Storm have been immediately transferred to Immortals and are now going to be
representing them using that name in their competitions. The contracts that they had
previously signed with Tempo Storm were bought out by Immortals, which shows how
dedicated they are to trying to make an impact on the CS:GO Scene.
Using the name Tempo Storm, the number two team in Brazil secured a placed in the ESL
One Cologne Main Qualifier, after placing second to OpTiC in the American Minors. They
also earned themselves a spot in the fourth season of ESL Pro League, by winning ESEA
Premier Season 21 Finals, and came second place at DreamHack Austin, truly proving that
they are one of the best upcoming teams.
Following their recent victories, Tempo Storm broke into the official Top 10 Rankings for
CS:GO, and they are certainly living up to this prestigious accolade.
“We have never been so motivated to reach our goals and be the best. We would like to
thank Immortals for this opportunity and we will not take this for granted. We are going to
keep doing our work and representing Immortals in the best way we can” Henrique “HEN1”
Teles told ESPN.com
The following roster will now be representing Immortals from now on:
Henrique “HEN1” Teles
Gustavo “SHOOWTiME” Goncalves
Ricardo “boltz” Prass
Lucas “lucas” Teles
Joao “felps” Vasconcellos
Rafael “zakk” Fernandos (coach)
The first time we will truly see the new Immortals team take the stage will be during the ESL
One Cologne Main Qualifier, set to commence from June 9-12 in Katowice, Poland, where
they will be facing EnVyUs, who have been getting back on track recently, in the newly-
introduced Swiss System, which can be found here – http://www.hltv.org/news/17933-esl-
