Immortals (IMT) is an American professional esports team created in Los Angeles in 2015. The team was originally a League of Legends team. After encountering local success on the League scene, they started expanding to other games, though most of them have been discontinued since. They notably earned participation in the League of Legends Worlds Championship in 2017, before disbanding their League division because of the new franchising system. They however came back in 2019 after buying OpTic Gaming's LCS slot. Immortals' parent company, Immortals LLC, also owns the Brazilian esports team MiBR and the Overwatch League team Los Angeles Valiant. Investors include a lot of celebrities such as Steve Kaplan, part owner of the Memphis Grizzlies and the rock band Linkin Park, through their entertainment company Machine Shop co.
On September 13th, 2016, Immortals signed ANTi as their first Smash player. He was joined by the Melee player Shroomed a few months later, on December 22nd, 2016. Nearly two years later, Immortals and ANTi parted ways on September 9th, 2018. A month later, Shroomed left the organization as well, along with HRCtypo, the player manager, ending Immortals' smash division.
