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 official Immortals Twitter page posted this image ahead of SK’s match against Space Soldiers.

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.

How GeT_RiGHT became CSGO’s first God

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund became the first god of the game by dazzling a generation of players, propelling the game’s meta by years, and leaving a historic mark not to be outdone anytime soon.

Since 2010, before CS:GO ever hit the market, GeT_RiGhT was already terrorizing teams in 1.6 with fellow Swede Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg. Since their early 20s, the duo would rampage through events during their stints at Fnatic and SK Gaming.

If his career would have stopped in the 1.6 servers, his name would have still carried weight through the esports annals -but then, Global Offensive came out in 2012, where he would ascend to even greater heights of notoriety.

From the start, GeT_RiGhT would prove to be an instrumental force to reshape the Counter-Strike meta, specializing in dangerous lurks that would tilt opponents or catch them off guard.

It was risky, but so was his modus operandi. When early CS:GO pros would perfect their taps for long-range kills, he would hold Mouse1 to mow down entire teams with pinpoint recoil mastery.

He would soon be known for his multi-kills from a distance, without the need for consecutive fires, instead electing for choice bullet accuracy to push his team forward.

The #1 player in the world in 2013 and 2014, GeT_RiGhT, and the rest of the reformed Ninjas in Pyjamas that included Adam ‘Friberg,’ Robin ‘Fifflaren’ Johansson, Forest, and Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström would create an astounding 87-0 map win run.

GeT_RiGhT would go on to have an illustrious career filled with trophies, titles, and glory, becoming the first god of CS:GO along the way.
