Jeremy ‘Disguised Toast’ Wang, a prominent figure in the online gaming community, is broadening his esports horizons with the creation of a League of Legends team for the North American Challengers League (NACL).
This exciting development comes six months after he initiated his first Valorant team.
In late May, Disguised Toast hinted at his new project, seeking recommendations for the best North American League of Legends players on Twitter.
Just a few days later, his entry into the NACL was confirmed. This news was greeted with much excitement, especially considering recent shifts in the League’s structure, such as several leading LCS teams withdrawing from the NACL.
Riot Games Revamping the NACL
Riot Games is committed to making the NACL more sustainable and competitive, offering revenue sharing to participating teams along with a significant prize pool of $100,000.
It also plans to enable more competitive opportunities for NACL teams by potentially launching cross-region competition in the Americas by 2024.

The Disguised LoL team, announced in early June, is composed of talented players with substantial LCS experience.
Tristan ‘Zeyzal’ Stidam, a two-time Worlds participant with Cloud9, brings significant expertise to the squad. He will reunite with his former Cloud9 teammates Aaron ‘FakeGod’ Lee and Tomio ‘Tomio’ Chan.
Notably, the team is coached by Greyson ‘Goldenglue’ Gilmer, a veteran player who has represented several LCS teams and served as the coach for 100 Thieves Academy in 2021 and 2022.
The complete team roster includes:
- Aaron ‘FakeGod’ Lee
