Team Summary

Previously competing as the Immortals, the Los Angeles Vlaiant are one of the twelve teams in the inaugural season for the Overwatch League. After a strong showing in Contenders Season 0, the Immortals took a step back and missed the playoffs in Season 1. They’ve since added more firepower to their roster and look to take the inaugural season of the Overwatch League by storm.

Overwatch League – Los Angeles Valiant Declaw Seoul Dynasty – S4W1D1

As Stage 4 of the Overwatch League kicked off the teams have both the Stage Finals and the Inaugural Season Playoffs on their minds and in sight.
