North American esports organisation Beastcoast has announced the acquisition of Tempo Storm’s Rainbow Six Siege Pro League slot.
As a result, the organisation will move its roster from the North American Challenger League, Rainbow Six Siege’s second division, into the Pro League.
Colin Bashor, the General Manager at Beastcoast, spoke on the acquisition: “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.”
Launched in 2017, Beastcoast is a New York-based esports organisation which prides itself on being a player-focused organisation alongside ‘celebrating the diversity of gaming communities both large and small’.
The organisation currently fields rosters across a variety of esports titles such as Dota 2, Teamfight Tactics, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and VALORANT. Moreover, some of Beastcoast’s commercial partners include HyperX, RESPAWN, and Betway, among others.
Captain Joseph “Phozzo” Eisenmann, Captain of Beastcoast’s R6 team also commented: “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.”
Esports Insider says: Beastcoast’s inclusion in the Rainbow Six Seige Pro League shows the organisation’s intent to propel themselves further in the title. It’ll be interesting to see if Beastcoast is fully focused on Rainbow Six, or if this is just the start of the organisation investing further in additional esports titles.
