Mr. Beast confirmed that he is planning to form his own official League of Legends professional team. He said that once the players are complete and the team is formed, he will call it Beast Gaming, which is a cool name.
Jimmy “Mr. Beast” Donaldson is currently one of the most popular YouTubers across the globe. He can be considered on the same level as PewDiePie, Tyler 1, Pokimane, Disguised Toast, and other popular influencers that are mostly streaming online games.
However, Mr. Beast’s content hardly revolves around esports and gaming. This popular streamer is well-known for his insane stunts and philanthropic giveaways. Although this is the case, he still plays League of Legends and other popular strategy games, as well as shooting titles.
Although the League of Legends community is grateful that Mr. Beast is trying to enter the League of Legends professional world. However, the fans believe that the popular YouTuber has entered the game very early. They said that he doesn’t have enough experience when it comes to League of Legends LCS and League of Legends World’s Tournament.
But, Mr. Beast is dedicated to forming his own League of Legends professional team by 2022. During a 24-hour giveaway stream, one of the viewers asked him if he is still interested to enter the world of League of Legends.
He said that “oh yeah, not even thinking, it’s happening. Definitely not this season or… the summer split either. But we are definitely going to have a “Beast Gaming” League of Legends Team. One hundred percent. I definitely want one. I don’t want to say too much [about] what I have planned. But… it would just be so much fun.”
Is Mr. Beast qualified to form a League of Legends team?
Although he seems not ready to create his own LoL professional team, you can see that he is really dedicated to understanding how the game industry works and how each team is properly managed. The YouTuber confessed that he watches all League of Legends matches all the time, including every tournament from the Mid-Season Invitational to the League of Legends World Championship.
He said that “I spend so much time watching so… I might as well watch one of my teams, you know what I mean? It’ll be a lot of fun.” Another thing that makes this YouTuber a qualified LoL professional team owner is his budget. He is currently one of the most successful YouTubers who rely on most of his incomes in his sponsors. This means that this influencer will have no issue when it comes to budget.
On Feb 18, he officially announced that he will continue his LoL team and expects it to be complete by 2022.
Are you qualified to join?
Before you join a professional League of Legends team, there are certain qualifications that you need to have. Here are some of them;
Some tournaments might be restricted to players who are from, or are a resident in specific countries.
In order to be eligible for a residential-restricted event a player must be either:
- A citizen of that country and able to provide a valid ID/passport
- A continuous resident of that country and able to provide any scholastic enrolment, long-term employment contract or signed lease
- Have been a temporary resident in that country for at least 90 continuous days, including the event start date
Tournaments are open to any summoners aged 18 or over with no specific requirements.
Summoners aged 16 or 17 who wish to enter a tournament may be required to have a parental consent form signed before the start date of the tournament. That document will be checked along with the player’s passport during the tournament.
It is the captain’s responsibility to verify that every member of his team (main or substitute) is eligible, within the age restriction (16+) and in possession of all the required documents (proof of residence for the tournament and, in case of minors, signed parental consent form).
