QO takes break from competing; leaves Immortals
The reunited all Korean squad showed much promise and hope coming out of the TI7 shuffle after qualifying for PGL Open Bucharest Major, where they secured a 3rd-4th place finish and Dota Pit LAN. But in Croatia they had a disappointing 7-8th place finish and unfortunately were never able to clinch any additional spots in the Pro Circuit for the 2017 season.
On the heels of the less than expected results, Lee ‘Forev’ Sang-don left the team line-up at the end of December 2017 and was eventually replaced with Arif ‘MSS’ Anwar two weeks ago. Heading into the new year with new events, the team continued to struggle to find a victory to bring them better results.
In a farewell Facebook post QO stated:
The announcement came as a surprised since QO had already officially registered with the team last week on January 10th. Immortals have not not made any public statements about possible replacements or any additional changes.
