The Immortals clear-out has continued as the team announced Monday that their starting AD Carry Jason "WildTurtle" Tran will not be re-signing with the organization.

The announcement follows the departure of other starters in the Immortals lineup, with Adrian "Adrian" Ma heading to Phoenix1, Heo "Huni" Seong-hoon joining SKT and Kim "Reignover" Yeu-jin singing with Team Liquid. All players were eligible to field offers from other teams as of September, when Immortals' CEO Noah Winston released a video about the team pre-Worlds. Coach Dylan Falco also departed, with the void being filled by David "Hermes" Tu.

WildTurtle was last seen at IEM Oakland, as a substitute for Peng "Doublelift" Yilang on Team SoloMid. The team lost in semifinals to eventual champions the Unicorns of Love.

Eugene "Pobelter" Park is the last member of the team's summer roster who has not announced his departure.
