“Being in effect for the first season, the updated transfer regulations turned out to not allow for emergency cases to be applied,” WESA’s announcement reads. “This limitation has come to light as a result of a current situation surrounding Immortals. As a consequence, the WESA Executive board has decided to amend the existing league transfer regulations with an additional paragraph allowing a third transfer in case of emergency (as deemed by the league administration).”
The original rules for Season 6 of the ESL Pro League limited the number of player transfers to two, with no transfers being possible outside of a transfer window (which closed at the beginning of the season). Now teams may petition the executive board for an emergency transfer and if granted, they can only make the transfer by removing one of the previously added players from the roster.
Immortals’ CS:GO roster has went through a bizarre series of events where Vito “kNg” Giuseppe threatened Pujan “FNS” Mehta of Counter Logic Gaming during DreamHack Montreal, which subsequently led to his termination and the team moving Henrique “HEN1” Teles and Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles to the bench after they refused to play without kNg on the roster. With Lucas “steel” Lopes and Ricardo “boltz” Prass left on the roster, Immortals will have to pivot going forward.
