During its ongoing search for an organization to represent, the former Excelerate Gaming squad has added Rainbow Six Siege content creator Beaulo to its roster for Pro League Season 10.
With over 736,000 YouTube subscribers and almost 300,000 followers on Twitch, there's no question that Beaulo has quite the following. But competitive Rainbow Six fans wonder if this content creator also has the skills to compete with the best players in the world.
Pros, on the other hand, seem quite supportive of the idea.
"He might be disgusting in Pro League," G2 Esports' Niclas "Pengu" Mouritzen said.
Parker "Interro" Mackay was more than supportive.
"BEAULO IS IN PRO LEAGUE. I REPEAT. BEAULO IS IN PRO LEAGUE. THIS IS NOT A DRILL," he tweeted.
Professional esports commentator Devin Becker also expressed excitement over the news. He replied to Beaulo's tweet with some words of encouragement.
"I remember back when you were just 15 and thinking to myself, 'It's sad I'll probably never see the day he's in PL.' Happy to be wrong that you've made it this far. Proud of you and looking forward to casting you slaying it with the big boys!" Becker said.
Known for his high frags per match totals and strong communicative skills, Beaulo may indeed prove to be more than just a popular streamer.
He will be joined on the team by Achieved, Khalil "b1ologic" Pleas, Krusher, Merc, and Pojoman. The currently unsigned roster ended its contract with the Excelerate esports organization in May. They are currently looking for a new organization, and Beaulo's big following could be quite the draw.
