With the end of The International 8, the traditional post TI shuffle period has begun.

Although Valve had announced that there would be no ‘hard roster’ locks this season, they did specify that teams would need to be registered by September 15th in order to be eligible for regional qualifier invite to the first Major and Minor qualifiers of the new DPC 2018-2019 season.

The first competitive DPC dates:

Sep 17-Sep 21: Major Qualifier
Sep 23-Sep 26: Minor Qualifiers
Oct 29-Nov 4: Minor Main Event
Nov 8-Nov 19: Major Main Event

Eric ‘Ryoya‘ Dong is now looking for a team and no longer part of the Immortals lineup. Since the most recent roster lock in the early winter, the team qualified for DreamLeague Season 9 Major, ending with a 7-8th place finish eventually – but were unable to seize any other events during the last part of the DPC 2017-2018 season, including The International 8.

The current Immortals roster is as follows:

Korea Pyo ‘MP’ Noa
