Immortals have previously attended the last two major R6 LANs, the Six Major where they came last in a fairly hard group and the Season 8 Finals in Rio where they went out in the quarter-finals following a loss against G2. This is a notable performance to even qualify for these tournaments as they aren’t in the traditional “big-3” teams of NiP, Liquid and FaZe, however, they still failed to win a game in either of these tournaments, and so to really cement themselves as one of the giants of Latin America they’ll need an impressive showing at the upcoming Six Invitationals.
We asked Immortal’s roster exactly how their new players have integrated into the roster and how they are preparing for the biggest event of their esports careers in two weeks time:
First, Can you introduce yourself to us? Secondly, in Rio, your team faced G2, how did you prepare against a team as good as G2?
Novys: My name is Novys and I am the Team Captain for IMT R6 team. We just practised a lot for Rio. We ultimately fell to G2 in the quarter-finals, but we practised a lot and tried some new stuff
How are you preparing for the Six Invitationals?
Cyber: We’ve already started our preparation to the Invitational as we began to analyze some NA, EU and APAC teams, but we are still primarily focused on Pro League and BR6 so we can stay at the top and later we will be fully focused on Invitational.
Shortly after Rio, Bullet1 and MKing replaced yuuk and D1OGO1. How did you come to this decision and how are they fitting into the roster?
pX: I am very happy that I am back into the main roster and of course, we are sad about the departure of our last teammates.
Other than yourselves, which teams do you think will impress in LATAM during Season 9?
pX: In my opinion NIP will have a great performance this season compared to the last one. I am pretty sure they will be top 4 again.
What changes would you make to Rainbow Six Siege?
Bullet: I would add new modes because nowadays there is only ranked and t-hunt, so I would add a mode where you could practice your aim before a Pro League match.
What are your goals for 2019?
MKing: Our main goal as a team is to win a big championship like BR6, PL or a Major. As a player, my main goal is to become one of the best support players in the world.
Any messages to your fans?
Bullet: My message to the IMT fans is: continue to support us, we are making huge progress and we are ready to surprise everyone
Immortal’s next game is tonight against FaZe Clan in their final game of the half-Season with their debut game at the Six Invitationals being against Team Empire on February 11th.
