What happened? Recently, in one of his streams on Twitch, Disguised Toast talked about his new esports team for Valorant. The streamer, whose real name is Jeremy Wang, is proud of his team. Because although the squad has only been playing together for a short time, the team qualified confidently for the “Valorant Champions Tour”.

The Valorant Champions Tour is, so to speak, the second Bundesliga for the FPS shooter from Riot Games. After qualifying, Disguised Toast was very relieved. Because by participating in the series he doesn’t have to fire anyone, he joked in the stream.

Despite the first small successes, the streamer should now have realized that such an e-sports team also means a lot of work and, above all, needs financial resources. As the owner, he has to advance a lot of money.

He claimed to pay his players a hefty salary of over $5,000. This would put the team’s salaries in the upper range of e-sports.

An anthem was specially created for a major Valorant tournament. Check out the music video for it here:

Does the team have a chance of success?

How is the team financed? The high expenses have not yet been offset by any income, as Disguised Toast explained. The team’s qualification alone has not yet brought in any prize money and the search for sponsors would continue.

On Twitter, he asked how it’s making money now – before jokingly noting that he apparently didn’t type that into Google.

Still, he wants to avoid crypto sponsors as much as possible, as he said in a Twitch clip. Many Valorant professionals are currently suffering from crypto betting exchanges.

Who plays for the esports team? Jeremy Wang’s team goes by the name of Disguised and consists of both pros with ample experience in esports and promising rookies. Team captain is Josh “steel” Nissan, who previously had success with 100 Thieves.

The veteran has had a long career in Counter-Strike before finally moving to Valorant. His biggest success was reaching the semi-finals of the VCT Masters (Valorant Champions Tour) 2021 in Berlin.

The other team members also have tournament experience and, with the exception of Joseph “clear” Allen, have already participated in the VCT. Joseph Allen is already considered one of the greatest Valorant talents, although he is still a rookie.

In purely sporting terms, Disguised definitely has potential. However, it remains to be seen whether the streamer can also convince financially strong sponsors and partners.

Successful streamers are increasingly active in other business areas

Disguised Toast is not alone: Recently, it has become more and more common for successful streamers to establish a second mainstay away from the webcam. For example, TimtheTatman is a co-owner of Complexity Gaming. He first rose to fame on Twitch, but now streams on YouTube.

DrDisrespect was one of the platform’s biggest streamers before he was banned from Twitch. He’s now also on YouTube, even if he’s not always happy there. The Doc now even has his own studio and is working on the development of a new shooter.

Guy Beahm, DrDisrespect’s real name, is also busy away from the computer. In late 2022, the Doc launched a whiskey. The schnapps was completely sold out after just a few hours.

Now your opinion is needed! Fingers crossed for the Disguised Toast team? Do you think streamers can also be successful off camera in the long term? Or should the streamer have thought about how he wants to finance his e-sports team beforehand? Leave us a comment and discuss with the community!
