- David “Nomy” Perez (Tank)
- Jeremy “Jer” SantaCruz, (Flex tank)
- Athen “Aythen” Zhu (Support)
- George “Hyped” Maganzini. (Support)
This team has had success so far but whether they can continue to play at a top-tier level is not yet known. This roster will be debuting for the first time under the Immortal’s brand on September 25-30 at the ELEAGUE Atlanta, Georgia studio.
UPDATE: The groups have been announced for the Overwatch Open. Here they are. Immortals are in North American group B.
