Format of the MrBeast vs Ninja LoL Ultimate Crown event
The $150K Ultimate Crown event features a standard best-of-three format, as MrBeast stated in his own announcement. To win the overall game, either creator must lead their team to two map victories.
Ninja is offering a bonus third match for $50,000. Of course, Ninja’s competitive nature would not allow MrBeast to leave without a fight. Tyler Blevins offered a third-round fight for charity after suffering a crushing defeat. Both teams accepted the offer and proceeded to game three. At 7:30, Ninja sunk his teeth into MrBeast in search of blood. Team Ninja would wipe the floor fifteen minutes later, with MrBeast earning a team kill, increasing their lead to 19 kills to MrBeast’s 9. Five minutes later, Team Ninja would march to victory, eliminating Mizkif, Voyboy, and MrBeast along the way.

In the second game, Team MrBeast quickly picked up the pace, racking up 26 kills to Team Ninja’s 12. MrBeast won the Ultimate Crown after defeating Team Ninja in less than 25 minutes.
