On December 22nd, DaJuan "Shroomed" McDaniel was announced to be representing eSports organization Immortals as their first Super Smash Bros. Melee player. After leaving Winterfox earlier this month, Shroomed has been in negotiations with Immortals to become the organization's second Super Smash Bros. player, the first being Smash Wii U player Jason "ANTi" Bates.
“Shroomed isn’t only a skilled competitor, but also a player that consistently reflects the IMT commitment to holistic performance," said Immortals CEO Noah Whinston in a blogpost. "DaJuan’s focus on mental and physical wellness as keys to competitive performance made him an easy choice as Immortals’ SSBM representative.”
Shroomed is a top professional Melee player specializing in Sheik, with Dr. Mario as his secondary. Placing top 8 at multiple national-level events throughout the year, he is considered to be in the top echelon of competitive Melee, in the group of players right outside the 'Big Six'.
Author's Note: We at Smashboards congratulate him and wish him only the best for his Melee career and a great 2017 season. Stay tuned!
