The North American squad sees another member of its roster depart as its now former support/captain is on the lookout for a new team.
More news from the North American region came out yesterday, as Immortals has lost another member of its roster this offseason. Just 2 days after it was revealed that Eric “Ryoya” Dong was no longer a part of the team’s roster, support player and team captain Kim “DuBu” Doo-young has also announced that he has left the organization. As of right now, it is unclear what the organization plans to do for the new Pro Circuit season, as its lineup is now reduced to just 3 active players. When Ryoya left the team, there was speculation that the organization could continue its trend of maintaining a largely Korean, or at least Southeast Asian, lineup. However, with 2 players now removed from the roster, Immortals may opt for a less specialized rebuild in an effort to bounce back quickly and keep itself near the top of the hierarchy in North America.
As for DuBu himself, the future is not entirely clear. While he has made it clear that he is in search of a new squad for the Pro Circuit season, there are no details available right now as to what team that could be or even what region it might be in. While his previous squad played in the North American region, DuBu did begin his career in Southeast Asia and could potentially be ready for a return to the region. On the other hand, the myriad of roster moves and departures that we’ve already seen in the North American region would ostensibly leave quite a few opportunities available for DuBu should he be looking to remain in NA. Wherever he ends up going, DuBu will bring valuable experience both as a captain and as a player that has seen his fair share of action on the international level.
The roster of Immortals following DuBu’s departure from the team:
Pyo “MP” No-a (Carry)
Kim “Velo” Tae-Sung (Offlane)
Kim “Febby” Yong-min (Support)
Andrew “Jubei” Evelynn (Coach)
Josh “Shua” Arkin (Manager)
