The American esports organization, Immortals revamps its League of Legends: Wild Rift roster by welcoming the return of its former member Lebmont. The pro player will be playing as the team’s jungler, replacing Amir “YikeZ” Hossein who recently left the team.

Immortals is a professional esports organization based in the United States and was founded on 7th Oct 2015. The organization previously held a ton of esports titles and are now currently focused on managing three teams from various esports titles such as League of Legends PC, Valorant, and Wild Rift.
Immortals is currently one of the strongest teams in the NA Wild Rift esports scene. Last year, the team garnered a lot of attention after acquiring the former Mobile Legends esports pro player and content creator, Hoon. Even though the team was not able to join the prestigious Wild Rift Horizon Cup 2021, the team has caught the attention of a lot of Wild Rift fans from around the world.
Immortals was able to secure championship titles in various local Wild Rift esports events such as the Team Liquid Weekly: NA #6, RiftMSTRS Open Qualifiers and the Samsung Mondays - Week 3.
It will be interesting to see if Immortals can secure a ticket to this year’s Wild Rift Icons Global Championships 2022.
