“You’re trash kid”

Team MrBeast slays Team Ninja in Las Vegas LoL showmatch



The battle between the two internet giants, Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, has been settled. 

In a highly anticipated League of Legends show match, held in the HyperX Arena in Las Vegas, the two internet sensations clashed on Summoner’s Rift in a best-of-three.

Although Ninja’s team was the favorite in the series, MrBeast and company ended up winning the showdown 2-0.

Despite having players like former professional bot laner Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng and LoL streamer Tyler “Tyler1” Steinkamp on his team, Ninja couldn’t do anything. It ended up being the Joedat “Voyboy” Esfahani and Mohammad “Yassuo” Abdalrhman show, with MrBeast himself making some sweet plays.

Even though this was a show match, it was a competition that all players took seriously. Right from the first draft, there was a full tryhard mode for everyone, even Doubelift put himself in a good spot to carry the games.

Unfortunately, the former LCS Champion – Doublelift – failed in finding his past form and didn’t live up to the star reputation. Instead, MrBeast and his bot lane duo Emily “Emiru” Schunk, stood up to Doublelift and didn’t get rolled entirely

This was enough for the stars of Team MrBeast to grab the carry torch and do their job. Yassuo in mid and Voyboy in top ended up carrying both games.

The player who caught the eye of the crowd was Voyboy. He went up against Tyler 1, and after a long break from the game, we can say that “The Kid” still got it.

With the bo3 win, Team MrBeast could walk away with $150,000 for charity, while Team Ninja looked like a team walking away empty-handed. 

In the last minutes, Ninja proposed one final match for $50,000, which his team managed to win. After two rough losses, Doublelift and Ninja himself finally found the shape and managed to take a Nexus and some money for charity.

Jaxon's Take

Some LCS team out there might as well sign MrBeast and Emiru for their bot lane. It would bring more fans and probably better chances on the Rift.
