IMT vs. FLY is yet another underwhelming mismatch. There’s really no other way to say it. The difference between them might not be of the “night and day” variety, but it’s not far off either.
There’s just… nothing to get excited about, and that’ll be true for basically every match in which Immortals are scheduled to compete in. They’re not abysmal on paper but their line-up is so obviously flawed, so lacking, that we cannot help but be frustrated about it.
We’re talking about a marksman who has accomplished next to nothing, despite competing on a wide gamut of teams and organizations. He’s just not capable enough to rub shoulders with the vast majority of his peers, and much of the same can be said for some of his teammates as well.
We like the fact that Kenvi has finally gotten the nod but we’re also wary of Immortals not thinking things through — but more on that below.
IMT vs. FLY — Not At All Competitive
Kenvi’s great. Of that we’re all aware. Immortals, on the other hand, are not. They just don’t have any kind of positive track record when it comes to player development.
They’re not Cloud9, TSM, Team Liquid, or Evil Geniuses and they cannot simply bring in a player (regardless if he’s talented or not) and hope that he, too, will grow out into a superstar a la Danny or Jojopyun — or so many who came before them like Spica and Blaber, for instance.
Kenvi needs to be set up for success in order to succeed. He needs to be nurtured and taken care of; he needs to be given guidance and wisdom and just the right amount of wiggle room.
And, well, we don’t think he’ll get any of that over at Immortals.
FlyQuest are at least fun to watch, so it’s not like there’s no reason to tune in. They might not be a towering giant, but they’re still a scrappy playoff contender and are more than worthy of our time and attention.
If, however, you’re after the best and most layered League of Legends, then you’d be wise to look elsewhere.
