Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is one of the most popular and oldest variety Twitch streamers, best known for her entertaining Fortnite and League of Legends streams. Along with these games, she has also grinded games like Minecraft, Rust, and Among Us to further expand her presence in the streaming world.
Recently, Pokimane has been streaming Valorant ever since it was released, and it’s been a few months since she started her incredible grind in Riot Games’ FPS title to the great success, which recently saw Pokimane reaching a milestone ranking, receiving an outpour of support for this monumental achievement.
From Diamond to Immortal
Throughout her journey in Valorant’s intimidating ranking system, the Twitch streamer had reached Diamond ranking multiple times, and during her recent stream, she achieved what may be impossible for most new and casual Valorant players, i.e. the Immortal rank.
The Diamond rank is quite hard to achieve as only the top 1.5% per region have secured the ranking, but what makes the grind even more impressive is hitting the Immortal rank, which the top 1% for each region will achieve. This makes Pokimane’s recent feat more astonishing and incredible.
The Twitch streamer shared the news of her monumental achievement on Twitter, writing, “After being Diamond for 3 Acts, I finally hit Immortal! So freaking happy and proud of myself.”
