Immortals entertaining offers for fnx

Immortals announced Thursday the team will entertain offers for Lincoln “fnx” Lau, the organization’s benched Counter-Strike player.

“Fnx has been surveying his options during this time, and he is able and ready to return to professional play,” the release reads. “However, with our current roster performing admirably, we feel both parties would be better served by fielding offers to transfer FNX so that he can continue his competitive career with another organization.”

Fnx joined Immortals in February after being removed from SK Gaming in December. He lasted three months on the active roster before he was benched and the organization signed Vito kNg Giuseppe on a trial basis. kNg has played well and helped Immortals qualify for its first Major and then earn a runner-up finish at the PGL Krakow Major over the weekend. Immortals then announced the addition of kNg would be permanent.

Fnx is considered one of the most veteran players in Brazil, with a career reaching as far back as the year 2000, two Major wins while he was a part of SK Gaming and Luminosity. He has had a history of conflict with teams, however, as we was benched by both Immortals and SK Gaming. A tweet from a well-known Brazilian CS:GO analyst suggests fnx already has a new team, but time will tell where he ends up playing next.
