Immortals have officially announced the signing of Paul “Soaz” Boyer to their 2020 roster.

Soaz is a legendary top laner who most recently competed with Misfits. Throughout the last year, the Misfits team had a tough time finding their groove and struggled in the spring and summer splits. As a result of the poor performance, Misfits decided to replace the entire starting roster with their academy team to “have some consistency.” After this drastic lineup change, most of the original lineup parted ways with the organization and Soaz became a free agent.

Soaz will also be joined by mid laner Jeremy “Eika” Valdenair, bot laner Johnny “Altec” Ru, and support player Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent. Jake “Xmithie” Puchero, one of North America’s most sought after free agents, was recently acquired by Immortals and will fill the jungler role.

Immortals are returning to the LCS for the 2020 season where they have not competed since losing their slot in 2017. Earlier this year Immortals acquired Infinite Esports, the parent company of OpTic Gaming, and regained their franchise spot. After the acquisition, the OpTic League of Legends team was rebranded to Immortals.

Immortals retained the management staff despite the rebranding, and Thomas “Zaboutine” Si-Hassen and Kublai “Kubz” Barlas will remain as coaches.

Immortals are returning strong to the LCS with a stacked competitive roster that guarantees an entertaining 2020 season.
