Beastcoast Takes On Tempo Storm’s R6 Siege Pro League Spot
That’s right, the void Tempo Storm left in the R6 Siege Pro League has been filled, and by the NA Challenger League team, beastcoast! Beastcoast is a fairly new esports org, coming to life around 2017. A smaller, player-focused org, they have moved up to the big time of R6 Siege, and we’re glad to hear it. We don’t see too many Challenger orgs move up in esports just in general, so this is pretty awesome news.
Beastcoast = Bestcoast?
Only time will tell on that part. But beastcoast do already compete in a variety of games, including Dota 2, Teamfight Tactics, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and VALORANT. A team that celebrates the diversity of gaming communities, we’re glad to see beastcoast take Tempo Storm’s spot in R6 Siege. This will be a great barometer to see if the squad is ready to move up from the Challenger League.
Colin Bashor, the General Manager at beastocast had this to say:
“beastcoast is incredibly excited to join the North American League with our existing roster. We’ve had a high level of belief in the team that we’ve competed with for the past year and their ability to compete at the highest level.
“When the ability to enter the North American League with our team came along we were excited to acquire the license and give our players the consistent opportunity to prove they can compete with the best of the best.”
Who will be beastcoast be fielding as Tempo Storm steps down from R6 Siege, and this fresh squad comes up?
The Captain of the squad, Joseph “Phozzo” Eisenmann spoke about the announcement:
“After a year of trying to get back into the North American League, my time has finally come and I couldn’t be more grateful and happy to be representing beastcoast in the upcoming season. From the minute they signed my team they put full faith and all their resources in us. It’s time to get to work and show people what we are made of.”
Beastcoast has done quite well for themselves in 2020. They took a variety of 1st-2nd place finishes in several Qualifiers, and though they did take 5-8th in an A-Tier event (DreamHack Austin 2018), we think they could definitely have what it takes to prove their worth in R6 Siege. This seems like an exciting team with a lot to prove.
Will they show people what they’re made of, as Phozzo says? I think so. If Phozzo’s squad succeeds, it could mean more chances for Challenger teams in R6 Siege or other games. We need to see more Second Tier league teams moving up in the world. Good luck, beastcoast!
