One of the most well-known figures on the internet has declared that he is prepared to invest in professional #LeagueofLegends, especially in the North American scene.
#JimmyDonaldson #MrBeast announced at the pre-show for the upcoming 2022 League of Legends World Championship finals match between #T1 and #DRX that he plans to buy an LCS team soon. This comes after weeks of rumors about the content creator and his possibility to own a team in the area.
In case you didn’t know, the legendary Youtuber is a huge fan of video games, and have mentioned in a couple of interviews that one of his childhood dreams was becoming a pro gamer. Despite it not materializing, nothing holds MrBeast from becoming an owner of esports organization, which might even be considered an updgrade to his original ambitions.
Is MrBeast serious about purchasing an esports organization?
During the League of Legends Worlds 2022 pre-game show, one of the hosts questioned MrBeast on the analyst desk about buying an LCS team, and he said, “100%.” Mr. Beast clarified that he wants to do it correctly and at the appropriate time because he wants to support a team that can reach the Worlds finals, something that no LCS team has ever been able to do.
Mr. Beast indicated that he might buy a team within the next one to two years, though he didn’t provide any further details. MrBeast appears to be in the planning stages of making this decision, therefore it is unknown whether he intends to buy an existing LCS squad or form his own team.
Earlier this year, MrBeast hosted a significant League match between him and Ninja that featured numerous well-known content producers, including Tyler1, Ludwig Ahgren, Emiru, Doublelift, and Tyler1. Mr. Beast has made no secret of his admiration for League and how well it has endured for the past ten years.
As of currently, no team who participated in the 2022 LCS season has withdrawn from the league ahead of the 2023 season. The majority of the teams, however, are anticipated to make significant roster changes during the summer as a result of their subpar domestic and international results throughout the year.
Getting MrBeast on board would mean a lot to the whole esports community considering how big of a following he brings along. It is no secret that esports need more publicity, better marketing, and more exposure – and who can provide all of those things better than MrBeast himself?
