Featured Match: Immortals vs Echo Fox

Two relatively fresh-faced teams will be facing off today as we head into day two of the NA LCS Spring Split, with Immortals and Echo Fox both keen to show they’ve got what it takes to upset the established LoL powerhouses. This match is a very interesting one that could really go either way, as the two have only faced off once before and have both significantly overhauled their lineups since then.

Immortals mid Eugene “Porbelter” Park is the only one to have dealt with Echo Fox before and will no doubt be thinking back to the glory days when he, Huni, Reignover, Wildturtle and Adrian rampaged through the 2016 LCS Spring Split with an astonishing 17-1 scorecard before being stopped by TSM in the semifinals. That lineup is long behind them now, and the mostly-new Immortals have everything to prove this year.

For their part, Echo Fox have brought jungler Matthew "Akaadian" Higginbotham and support Austin "Gate" Yu into the fold for 2017, hoping to turn around a disappointing 2016 where they only placed 7th and 10th at the Spring and Summer LCS Splits respectively. Will the fresh lineup be enough to put the Immortals down for good? Place your bets!
