LoL: The 3 Twitch streamers with the biggest egos team up for $150,000 – Here’s how the Ninja vs. MrBeast spectacle went

lol double lift

Twitch streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is known for being extremely ambitious, not only in games like Fortnite but also in League of Legends. On Saturday night, July 9th, he played an exhibition match, to which he was challenged by MrBeast. Ninja grabbed two real LoL experts with Tyler1 and Doublelift, but the plan didn’t work out.

This is the situation:

  • Ninja is an aspiring gamer and entertainer who became the biggest streamer on Twitch with Fortnite 2018. He’s been out of the limelight a bit lately and is playing a lot of LoL.
  • YouTuber MrBeast is known for throwing money around and planning massive events. He challenged Ninja to an exhibition match in LoL: It should go for $150,000 for a good cause. Both captains line up their teams.
  • Ninja decided to bring in two strong LoL players, Doublelift and Tyler1, who have similar sized egos to his. All 3 are considered terrible trash talkers. In addition to the two LoL experts, he included two players, Ludwig and the YouTuber Sapnap, who have hardly any idea about LoL.

Tyler is a very special guy:

Team Ninja: Superstars and “Iron” players in one team

This is what the teams looked like: Both teams were relatively similar: each team had 2 really good LoL players, and two streamers who are not known for LoL. Plus the team captains.

Team Ninja consisted of:

  • Ninja himself, who’s been playing LoL like crazy for the last few years and likes to lose his temper – he was the midlaner
  • Tyler1, a fanatical LoL streamer who is known to be very aggressive – he played top lane
  • Doublelift, one of the best LoL players in North America of all time streaming now – played in the botlane
  • Ludwig, a former Super Smash commentator who’s always been known more for his entertainment than his player skills – he had to step in as a support
  • Sapnap – a Minecraft YouTuber, he played in the jungle

The MrBeast team consisted of:

  • MrBeast – a YouTuber who throws a lot of money around – he was a supporter.
  • Yassuo – a streamer for 100 Thieves who likes the character “Yassuo” – should go against Ninja in the middle. Yassuo is considered really strong.
  • Voyboy – an early LoL pro turned streamer – took on Tyler1 in the top lane. Voyboy is also considered an expert in LoL.
  • Mizkif – a Twitch steamer who comments a lot and plays Nintendo games – was allowed to have fun in the jungle. Like Ludwig, Mizkif is actually an entertainer, but he’s also a real gamer
  • Emiru – a Twitch streamer and Mizkif’s girlfriend. She had to stand against the professional Doublelift. Emiru has proven more than once that she can really do something as a gamer. At LoL she once complained directly to the developer.

With perfect staging around twitch streamers, LoL shows why they are years ahead of all e-sports games

“Team Ninja” is considered a big favorite with 3 stars

This is how the game was thought to end: On paper, “Team Ninja” was a pretty clear favorite:

The two of them “should” win such a fun tournament alone if they pull themselves together and play botlane.

Ninja is also a gifted gamer, despite all criticism of him.

“Ludwig practically lost the game on his own”

This is how the game actually went: Instead of putting Doubellift and Tyler1 in the botlane and dominating the thing, they put YouTuber Ludwig on as a support and it went terribly wrong.

Because Ludwig simply didn’t get anything baked.

Tyler1 said: Ludwig is an absolute weak point – he almost lost the game on his own.

MrBeast’s team won both games relatively easily:

  • The first match was decided after 33 minutes with 35 and 21 kills
  • The second match was even clearer with 16 to 12 after 25 minutes

The third match was actually unnecessary, but Ninja added another $50,000, completely reorganized the team and was able to restore some honor.

Weak players decide LoL matches, not the strong ones

How will the match be discussed? Most criticism reddit meets poor Ludwig. Being beaten as a supporter must be like visiting the “Ninth Circle of Hell”, says one user.

Other players were also criticized:

  • Doubelift couldn’t establish a clear advantage over Emiru, which amuses many.
  • Ninja was clearly shown his limitations in midlane against Yassuo, despite being a high ranked player he just didn’t see any land against a real master.
  • While Tyler1 was superior against Voyboy, he wasn’t strong enough to make up for the lost midlane and botlane.
  • Sapnap was quite a victim in the jungle while Mizkif played solidly.

So in the end, MrBeast’s two “weak players”, Emiru and Mizkif, were both significantly better than Team Ninja’s weak players.

That all changed in game 3: You put Tyler1 on as a support, let Ninja play Samira in the botlane and put Doublelift in the midlane – while hiding the “weak players”, Ludwig and Sapnap, in the jungle and on the toplane .

The plan then worked out perfectly, so you should have played the whole time.

This is behind it: The Ninja team was weird because you have these 3 good players with even bigger egos but two real weak points in the team in Sapnap and Ludwig – while the MrBeast team was more balanced.

The key would have been to grab the botlane like in Match 3, Tyler1 and Doublelift and let it go full steam ahead.

But everyone had fun and that was ultimately the purpose of the event.

The star of the evening was once again Tyler1, who seems to really come to life on the big stage.
