A total of four teams will converge on the virtual battlefield, each vying for a share of the $10,000 prize pool and the ultimate bragging rights. Beyond the monetary reward, the champions will be immortalized through custom-made Vi gauntlets, engraved with their names – a testament to their skill, teamwork, and triumph.
But this tournament isn’t just about fierce competition. It’s a testament to the growing convergence of esports and content creation, bridging the gap between the two worlds.

Leading the charge are four distinguished captains – Aphromoo, Scarra, Sneaky, and Yassuo. These revered figures will not only showcase their strategic prowess but also symbolize the unity between two facets of the esports universe. The anticipation grows as the live draft show, scheduled for September 3rd, looms ever closer. Set to be broadcasted on Disguised Toast’s own Twitch channel, this event will unveil the teams that will go head-to-head in this exhilarating competition.
While specific player lineups remain shrouded in mystery, Disguised Toast tantalizingly hints that the chosen participants are those he personally admires and has watched grow. As the NA Legends Invitational inches closer, the esports community is on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting the dawn of a new era where pros and content creators unite for an electrifying spectacle that promises to redefine the very essence of competition.
