Immortals Announce Wild Rift Team Led by Gosu Hoon
Another major org is getting into the upcoming Wild Rift scene, and that’s Immortals. The org made the announcement yesterday, and while they only named one member of the team, they’re starting out strong with SongHun “Hoon” Jang, a popular content creator. Immortals have confirmed they have a full roster, but they’ve started teasing with Hoon, who runs the Youtube channel “Gosu Hoon”. That’s right, Immortals Gaming Club joined the other teams who see a future in Wild Rift.
Experience in the Mobile Scene
With 57 million views on his channel, Hoon makes pretty entertaining overreaction videos for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, a mobile MOBA. Personally, this writer loves Moonton’s Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. However, as a League of Legends fan for life, once Wild Rift became available, he shifted over to it, becoming Challenger 1 in the first ranked season before too long. Hoon had this to say about the announcement:
“To have an organization like Immortals invest in my passion for Wild Rift and include me in their expansion to mobile esports is mind-blowing, said Hoon. “Together, we will bring new and existing fans even more content to help make Wild Rift their passion, too.”
This is the third Riot Games title Immortals Gaming Club is a part of: Wild Rift, League of Legends, and Valorant. Jordan Sherman, President and CCO of Immortals hyped up the partners at Riot and their excellence in creating esports games. After the recent talk of increasing the grassroots coverage for Wild Rift esports, we’re feeling pretty positive about the scene. More and more teams are joining Wild Rift for upcoming esports action, so it looks like it’s going to be a wild 2021 and 2022.
Jordan Sherman also talked about their goals for Wild Rift esports:
“Our goal as an organization is to be the authentic and credible entry point for fans and brands to enter the gaming and esports industry. Our organization is in a position where we are contribution margin positive across all of our business units, and we want to invest in areas of growth to invite more fans to become part of our community. With that vision as our guiding principle, Hoon is the perfect gamer to introduce our fans to Wild Rift.”
For now, we’ll just have to wait and see who winds up joining Hoon on the Immortals Wild Rift squad. They seem to be starting strong and taking it seriously. We’ll keep you up to date with other recruits for the org.
