Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys hosted the first ever Teamfight Tactics tournament on July 4, featuring a variety of the game’s top players and streamers.

The tournament offered a $15,000 prize pool, and Pokimane was joined by League of Legends casters Mark ‘MarkZ’ Zimmerman and Sam ‘Kobe’ Hartman-Kenzler to commentate the competition.

Sixteen of the top Teamfight Tactics players and streamers took part, including the likes of Hafu, who was the top-ranked player during the PBE, former TSM League of Legends pro Dyrus, and Forsen.

The tournament began with the sixteen players being separated into two groups with a random team generator, after which the top four players from each game advanced to a “winner’s match”, while the bottom four from each went into the “loser’s match”.

The tournament featured a variety of dramatic moments, including an incredible 1-vs-7 clutch by Reckful’s Ashe that demonstrated the power of strong items and smart positioning combined with a bit of luck.

The strategic nature of Teamfight Tactics seems to lend itself well to skilled Hearthstone players, with the top four finishers all known for their talent in Blizzard’s card game.

In the end, it was Dog, a professional Hearthstone player for Team Liquid, who took the victory, winning the final map with an incredible come-back against Disguised Toast after pulling back a 69-health deficit.

In the end, Dog’s composition, which was carried by a powerful Karthus-Draven combination, proved too strong for Disguised Toast, who couldn’t find a line-up capable of beating Dog’s squad.

While no official final standings were revealed during the broadcast, Hafu revealed the results on Twitter.

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.
