MrBeast and Ninja agreed to compete on the Summoners Rift for a $150k League of Legends wager. Both influencers have confirmed the esports competition on their Twitter accounts and it will be on July 9, in Las Vegas Nevada.
As seen above, it will be a LAN event in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 9. It will be a best of 3 matchup between two teams and the prize is $150,000. MrBeast teased the event a while ago, saying that he may host a League of Legends tournament soon and even flamed Ninja, telling him he sucks. Ninja did not waste any time to answer back and replied, “I would literally dominate you in a league of legends match and it wouldn’t even be close”. It turned out that both content creators were teasing the event. MrBeast has 14.5 million followers on Twitter and Ninja has 6.7 so this “bickering” addressed a huge audience before the event.
It is expected the remaining 8 players will consist of famous content creators. There are many options for MrBeast and Ninja to pick and they will probably choose some names that could spice up the competition. Both sides may pick up famous streamers who could attract more audience to the event and also make the event even more entertaining. Tyler1 and Sneaky would be great candidates for the bottom lane. Alongside them, there are many different streamers, especially on Twitch who could be a great fit for the open spots. The lineups will be announced soon and it is still not clear whether MrBeast and Ninja will play against each other in the same lane.
Who Will Win?
MrBeast is one of the most popular internet celebrities thanks to his out-of-mind YouTube content. He spends lots of money on stuff as the main concept of his YouTube channel and even started his own hamburger restaurant a couple of months ago, the MrBeast Burger. However, he got his fame with the video in which he counted 100,000 which took 40 hours to complete. Later, he tried different stunts like trying to break a glass with a hundred megaphones. He raised millions of dollars for charities and foundations and he is also known for being a “philanthropist”. According to Forbes, he is the highest-earning YouTube content creator, earning an estimated $54 million in 2021.
On the other hand, Ninja used to be the most successful streamer in the ecosystem, looking at his viewership and more. He is sponsored by the famous energy drink company, Red Bull. He used to be a professional Halo 3 player and then switched to Fortnite back in 2017 and that is when his fame began. He played Fortnite with names like Drake and Travis Scott and became the most followed Twitch streamer of all time with over 17 million followers. He streamed on Microsoft’s Mixer for some time then came back to Twitch after Mixer was shut down.
Both are very important figures for the streaming community and the event is expected to attract a huge audience.
