YouTube icon Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is possibly joining fellow content creators by entering esports, more specifically League of Legends.

League of Legends is looking like a hot ticket to content creators right now. Charles “MOistCr1TiKaL” White, who owns Moist Esports along with Ludwig Ahgren, is said to be looking into League of Legends after already having teams in Super Smash Bros. and Rocket League. Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang is also looking to put together a League of Legends team.

Now, MrBeast is thinking about throwing money into esports.

Is MrBeast making a League of Legends team?

MrBeast is reportedly eyeing the North American Challengers League (NACL). This is the second tier under the LCS. It’s been quite tempting for content creators looking to get into esports since most LCS franchises decided to drop out of the NACL when Riot Games removed the requirement.

With so many slots open, content creators are hoping to make their own teams to compete in the NACL. And the latest is allegedly MrBeast.

MrBeast is no stranger to the League of Legends scene. He has talked about it before, including stating that he planned to buy a slot in the LCS when he appeared on the Worlds 2022 broadcast. At the time, he said the question is “when” he will do it rather than if. Considering his eye-popping videos, the financial concerns preventing other content creators from joining esports shouldn’t be a problem.

100 Thieves veteran Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng talked about MrBeast’s possible LCS team earlier this year, stating that it would be “really good” for the scene. Others echoed this sentiment when TSM sold their LCS slot, opening up the possibility even more.

But it looks like MrBeast is eyeing the NACL instead. Only time will tell if this becomes a reality.
