The long anticipated move of SK Gaming’s CS:GO roster to Immortals seems to be accelerating, after Immortals posted a picture of Jake “Stewie2K” Yip in one of their jersey’s at ESL One Belo Horizonte.
Tensions between the SK roster and the organization seemed to be at their peak at the recent StarSeries Season 5 finals, when the entire team played without their SK jerseys.
It has been reported that SK had even stopped providing the team training facilities and the opportunity to bootcamp ahead of events, as the squad’s move to Immortals edges closer.
The team have since attended a number of smaller tournaments, apparently just to have the opportunity to practice as a squad together, since SK were refusing to provide for them.
SK Gaming are reported to have signed another Brazilian roster as the immediate replacement, instead providing practice facilities to them.
And while the deal is not yet official, it looks like Immortals have taken on responsibility for the current roster of Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, Fernando “fer” Alvarenga, Marcelo “coldzera” David, Ricardo “boltz” Prass and Stewie2K.

The team were back wearing their standard SK jersey’s for the official match, with the exception of Stewie2K, who wore the Immortals jersey while playing. Coldzera also wore a regular T-Shirt rather than his SK jersey.
It is expected that this will be the last LAN event that the roster play under SK, before the move to Immortals becomes official.
