The CEO of Immortals, Noah Whinston, answered to an AMA on r/Dota2 about IMT’s entry in the Dota 2 competitive scene.
A week ago, Immortals acquired the Korean MVP Phoenix’s roster, that played at TI6 obtaining a top 6 placement. Yesterday night, the CEO of the organization, Noah Whinston, hosted an AMA to share their goals and the reasoning behind this resolution.
We summarized the most interesting topics discussed in the open interview.
Noah explained that Immortals joined the Dota scene not only due to the new Majors system, but particularly because they found a team consistent with the values of the organization. They had three rosters in their mind, and wouldn’t have continued with their project if it wasn't possible picking up any of them.
Immortals will continue their journey in Dota as long as there is a right roster to support their brand philosophy.
Also, they want all their players to invest their time and energy connecting with the fans. They have to be genuine and honest, and be accountable of their own actions. IMT wants to transform them in real athletes.
Noah listed all the aspects they were looking for in a team:
Finally, he pointed out that Immortals is a North American organization, so the team will move there to interact with the fans of the region and compete in the NA leagues.
Looking forward to the EU Majors, they will organize bootcamps in Europe to properly prepare the team, but they will mostly spend their time in the facilities based in Los Angeles
