Series Information
Country:

B.E.A.S.T was a tournament series organized by Lolex, and a team of TOs including VJ, Isa, Reverb, Sarson, Flippy, Glaz, Apos, AwesomeBee, lucysky, RonnyRundspark, and Annapower89 (as well as Armada for editions 1 to 5), taking place in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was one of the biggest European events, featuring most top players from around Europe, and American players such as Mango.

Controversy and the End of BEAST[edit]

On March 9, 2017, Annapower89, a BEAST TO and Swedish player, released a Twitlonger and a folder of Facebook Messenger screenshots (in Swedish) detailing Lolex's harassment of female players. He was also accused of putting the BEAST crew in debt by using tournament registration money from a summer Smash camp to buy sex from an underage girl and make a trip to the USA.[1][2] Following this statement, the BEAST crew (sans Lolex) posted another statement on Reddit, announcing the end of the BEAST series and confirming the financial difficulties of the association:

"We acknowledge the rumours regarding our financial situation; however, we cannot comment on these rumors at the time being. To anyone financially involved in BEAST we apologize that we cannot resolve the situation at the present date. We will however release a statement further explaining our financial situation in the near future. (...)
In summary, we are extremely sad about the situation and that it has all come to this, but we feel that the decision to abandon BEAST, both as an organization and an event, is a necessity for everyone."[3]
