Throughout 2016, Immortals has been rapidly growing as an organization. We’ve expanded from just League into CS:GO, Overwatch, and Smash 4. We’re now thrilled to announce that we’re entering a new game: Melee. When it came time to consider who should represent the Immortals brand on this new frontier, we chose a veteran with a long history of hard work, dedication, and ambition. With that in mind, we’re pleased to welcome DaJuan “Shroomed” McDaniel to the IMT family!
Shroomed has a track record of excellence in Melee; he’s earned a spot as one of the top Sheik players internationally, and he is well known as the best Dr. Mario in the world. He established a reputation as a gatekeeper to the pro world; if you could beat Shroomed, you were capable of playing among the best.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the IMT roster and becoming part of an organization with such passion and dedication for esports. I’m looking forward to my journey with the IMT team.” –Shroomed
Over the course of his career, Shroomed has evolved from a brash new talent into a clear-minded, hard-working vet who has identified his goals. Continually focused on improving and topping his old bests, he has already reinvented himself from a Dr. Mario main to mastering Sheik. Joining Immortals is the latest step on his journey; a natural choice for someone totally dedicated to being the best he can be. Immortals is looking forward to working with Shroomed both in and out of game to achieve his ambitions and improve his already sharp skills.
“Shroomed isn’t only a skilled competitor, but also a player that consistently reflects the IMT commitment to holistic performance. DaJuan’s focus on mental and physical wellness as keys to competitive performance made him an easy choice as Immortals’ SSBM representative.” — CEO Noah Whinston.
We’re looking forward to seeing Shroomed grow in 2017 and beyond, and we’re looking forward to working with him on his journey.
