Is Immortals just a downgrade of Fnatic? Elo Boost News
Hello there, my name is Sylar and I am a LoLBoost employee. I am a challenger player from the region EUW and have been playing League of Legends for 4 years. Because I follow the LCS and LoLBoost is a huge League of Legends fan, I will be writing some articles on the competitive scene, among other things.
Imagine this: You're part of a 'League of Legends' team that has shown complete dominance throughout the European LCS and has even made it to the semifinals in the Season 5 World Championships. That team is none other than Fnatic. Fnatic's domination in the EU LCS was unlike anything anyone had ever seen before. It wasn't just a display of extremely talented players; rather it was a display of extremely talented players that collaborated well as an indestructible team. This team consisted of 5 players in their roster who are now arguably powerhouses in any team that they happen to join.
Huni, we've all heard the name before. Huni is currently the top laner for team Immortals. He made a name for himself joining Fnatic just before the start of the 2015 EU LCS Spring/Regular Season. He was recognised by both SK Telecom and Samsung Galaxy when he hit top 10 in Korean solo queue. This is quite complementing considering how successful these two organisations are. Evidently he tried out for both teams but wasn't given an unconditional offer due to the belief that he just wasn't up to par with the other top laners in Samsung Galaxy and SK Telecom. The first team Huni officially joined was none other than Fnatic. Huni is the spark that became a flame which eventually turned into a devastating fire obliterating anyone who stood in his way. Apart from being a great personality off the rift, Huni never stepped down from a challenge and always looked to square off against the world's best top laners to further improve his skills. The only liability to Huni is that sometimes he feels forced to make plays due to the publicity that he is receiving . This can have a toll on many great players. However, many people have speculated that there isn't really anyone in North America that can stand toe to toe with Huni and give him some problems. Team Solo Mid's Doublelift said: "He'll either make every top laner really good or he'll just crush them". Immortals being 6-0 in the NA LCS seems to be showing that Huni is just crushing the opposition.
Reignover, alongside Huni was also trying out for SK Telecom prior to the start of the OGN Spring 2015 Preseason. He was offered the position of a substitute for SKT's jungle position but chose not to be a substitute player for them. In January 2015, Reignover joined Fnatic. Fnatic's roster was seeing success - finishing 2nd in the regular season with a 13-5 record. Reignover typically enjoys playing hybrid junglers that can provide tankiness and damage for the team when necessary. Korean players looked down on Reignover because of his failure at many games in OGN. He is known for throwing games and has even been given the nickname 'Gameover'. The criticism didn't seem to affect Reignover much, many regarded Reignover as just another jungler who wouldn't make much noise. In other words a jungler that would get carried by his team. Reignover proved all of these critics wrong by making it to the semifinals in the Season 5 World Championships. Reignover was among the 3 "Incredible Failures". These are 3 players that were part of the team IM (Incredible Miracle), Smeb, KurO and Reignover who were known for their poor performance but are now all considered top tier players. (Smeb and KurO part of KOO tigers made it to the finals in the S5 World Championships)
Rekkles Vs Wildturtl
Immediately looking at these two names side by side you know the drill! It's a matter of EU vs NA. Both of these AD carries have consecutively maintained rank 1 on their regional ladder with incredible statistics on the champions they play. Wildturtl and Rekkles are both exceptional players and there isn't really much of a noticeable skill difference between them if we compare them. If you put either one of them on a good team, they'll both perform up to or above standard.
Febiven vs Pobelter
I have always seen Pobelter as a top tier mid laner, however... he will crumble to DUST in the presence of Febiven. Season 5 worlds marks Febiven's exaltation. Febiven has definitely proven to be without a doubt one of the best mid laners in the world. When Febiven solo killed Faker everyone was shaken and unable to comprehend what had just happened. Many critics will tell you that Febiven was lucky to achieve this twice and to some extent I would have agreed. All eyes were on Febiven after the game at MSI where he killed SK Telecom's Faker; leaving Faker who is regarded to some as a GOD, dead at his feet. Fnatic's Febiven did not disappoint. In fact, he did the complete opposite. At Season 5 Worlds Febiven would consistently out-farm and out-trade the opposing mid laner regardless of who they were. Febiven showed up when it mattered, he is arguably the key to why Fnatic was so successful.
Yellowstar vs Adrian
Every player that has been mentioned has at least attended worlds once. However Yellowstar is the only player alongside Dyrus to have attended EVERY single League of Legends World Championship. That itself is enough to say that he has a lot more experience than Adrian. Yellowstar appears to be the shot caller for whichever team he's in. He is very famous for his precise decision making and map movement. He is one of the few players that has been able to adapt to all of the changes made to League of Legends and also be successful.
What do you think? Is Immortals really just a downgrade from what used to be Fnatic? Or do you think Immortals is a new and improved team that can potentially be as successful if not more successful than the old Fnatic?
