The off-season has been quite an eventful time for League of Legends, but we're not just busy on the pro team side. We've also been scouting talents that offer more than high level play, and we're stoked to announce that Drew "Midbeast" Timbs has joined the Team Liquid family as a streamer and content creator!
Midbeast is a familiar name to fans in the OCE region, and his 1-year old Youtube channel is starting to become known to fans across the globe. By combining articulate and concise explanations with a solid foundation in the game, Midbeast has developed an audience that wants to learn — and fast.
Midbeast’s claim to fame is his Challenger in 3 Minute series, teaching players at all levels the essential fundamentals to specific champions in only 3 minutes. Midbeast’s philosophy is to keep his content short and sweet, making the most of his viewer's time without added filler and fluff content. A former national swimmer, Midbeast took the summer of 2011 to recover from an injury and decided to play video games to pass the time. He created a League of Legends account called Drewbeast, falling in love with mid lane, thus creating a smurf called Midbeast. In his first ranked season in 2013, Midbeast climbed from Bronze to Diamond, then hit challenger the season after and has retained challenger every season since. He debuted in Australia’s top league, the OPL, in 2015, having breakout performances on Leblanc and Twisted Fate. Midbeast continued to play in the OPL every year since, while completing a dual degree in Marketing and Journalism at the University of Queensland. Midbeast travelled to Korea earlier this year, staying with LCK team Ever8 Winners, reaching Master tier in SoloQ and playing with countless LPL and LCK pros.
