Former Team Liquid mid-laner Eugene ‘Pobelter’ Park has reportedly found a new home in the North American LCS.

According to a report by ESPN’s Jacob Wolf, Pobelter has signed with FlyQuest after being replaced in Team Liquid by former Cloud9 star Nicolaj ‘Jensen’ Jensen.

With a consistent record of top domestic placements across the last four years, Pobelter is considered by many one of the most valuable NA-native mid-laners in the league.

Pobelter himself confirmed that he has in fact signed with a new team, although no official announcement regarding his destination has been made.

The move comes after the most successful season of his career with Team Liquid, lifting the NA LCS trophy in both Spring and Summer of 2018.

Joining FlyQuest could see him reunited with two former team-mates from Immortals, albeit at separate times.

Pobelter was a part of the popular Immortals squad for both of its years in the NA LCS. In 2016, he competed alongside Jason ‘WildTurtle’ Tran, who now plays for FlyQuest, finishing third-place in both Spring and Summer.

LoL EsportsPobelter was part of a dominant year for Team Liquid in the NA LCS.

In 2017, he was the only original member to remain on Immortals, but the rebuilt squad – which featured Lee ‘Flame’ Ho-jong, who also moved to FlyQuest – finished second in the Summer split and competed at the World Championship.

The team hasn’t confirmed whether or not Flame, whose contract expired on November 19, will be re-signed for the 2019 season. Officially, the team’s LCS roster currently consists of WildTurtle, Support player Juan ‘JayJ’ Guibert, and Jungler Lucas ‘Santorin’ Tao Kilmer Larsen.

According to the ESPN report, however, only Pobelter, Santorin, and WildTurtle are currently locked in as starting players.

Popular content creator Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has revealed one of his biggest goals in life, explaining that he would like to own a professional League of Legends team in the future.

Mr Beast has built a massive following of over 45 million YouTube subscribers for his entertaining challenge videos and has also been incredibly charitable, giving away thousands of dollars to fans during his vlog series.

While he is not typically associated with making gaming content, Mr Beast has recently created a YouTube gaming channel, coming out with some unique videos such as filling 100 players into a single Among Us lobby.

However, despite having achieved and experienced so much at an early age, Donaldson revealed that there was one gaming-related goal in life that he was still chasing.

Mr Beast reveals plan to own League of Legends team

On October 28, the YouTube star simply claimed that Riot Games’ hit MOBA, League of Legends, was the “best game ever created.”

While he has been seen to cheer on LCS teams and G2 Esports at past events, he followed up by revealing that he would, eventually, love to have a team of his own to root for.

“One of my goals in life is to own a league team one day,” he added, sharing his plans to take on an ownership role in an esports organization.

As most of the major leagues are currently franchised, or moving or into the franchise model in the next years, it is likely that Mr Beast will have to find a team with an existing slot, depending on the level of team he would like to own.

However, Mr Beast’s post has already piqued the interest of multiple organizations in the LCS and LEC, with many of the top League personalities and owners already reaching out to the content creator.

Fnatic CEO Sam Matthews was among the first few the respond, offering MrBeast the chance to “own a piece of Fnatic” but MrBeast quickly denied, before joking that Fnatic could be a threat to his plans.

The likes of G2 Esports’ CEO Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriquez, as well as staff from TSM, Excel, 100 Thieves, have all hinted at the possibility of working with the star, giving him plenty of choice on how he would like to fulfill his life goal.

As of now, it is unclear just how soon Mr Beast plans on investing in a League of Legends team, or which team he will opt for, but we’ll just have to wait and see what he decides.
