Mac “Albralelie” Beckwith gets emotional and cries on the live stream after finding out his journey with the new team LANimals is over.
Since Apex Legend‘s release, Albralelie has been an incredibly mechanically gifted and talented player. The TSM star ImperialHal saw his potential and future growth in the TSM roster, resulting in him being picked up in the Apex team. Later with Albralelie, TSM won countless major tournaments within a very short time.
After Albralelie parted ways with TSM, he joined many teams, including Team Liquid, FaZe, and Cloud9, hoping to achieve greater success while still under the contract of TSM as a content creator. However, none of the teams worked out for this talented player.
After facing many ups and downs, Albralelie, Lou, and Naughty came together and formed LANimals. And, this time, Albralelie put everything he had. He even left his org, TSM, to go all in with the team. The community saw the potential of LANimals and had faith that this team could achieve something greater.
However, on May 27, 2023, Lou and Naughty announced that they were leaving LANimals and would be looking for teams. The sudden decision by his teammates affected Albralelie, and he broke down into tears during live stream.
Why did LANimals Disband?
Lou, Albralelie, and Naughty formed LANimals on February 16, 2023. The team was built to take on ALGS Split 2 Pro League and qualify for the Playoffs. Despite getting very close, LANimals fell just 4 points short and failed to qualify for the Playoffs. Nonetheless, it was a great run by Lou, Albralelie, and Naughty, considering the team was built only one month before the Pro League started.
However, things weren’t looking that great inside the team. After leaving LANimals, Lou shared some of the reasons why he took the hard decision. “We played oversight, I just felt like we weren’t meshing well together, and I just felt like this is what I wanted to do. So, I told Mac and Naughty that I wanted to leave”, Said Lou, during one of his live streams.
The official announcement from Lou and Naughty on Twitter did not reveal too much information on why LANimals disbanded. However, it looked like the team was struggling to match each others’ playstyles and had different perspectives on how to reach their ultimate goals.
“I just don’t believe the boys, and I have the same goals in mind. Best of luck to them and whatever journey is next.”, Lou.
“It was a great run with the boys, but unfortunately, things couldn’t work out for LANimals.”, Naughty.
Albralelie Breaks Down into Tears
After Albralelie found Lou was leaving LANimals, he approached Naughty and found he was also leaving the team. Assessing his situation, Albralelie got really emotional about how the whole situation had turned out.
Albralelie left TSM to join LANimals full-time. However, the team just disbanded in just 3 months without proving the team’s true potential. During his live-stream, Albralelie shared how he felt about the situation and broke into tears, saying, “I just don’t know what to do. It’s like, every decision I take ends up being a mistake. It’s never right. It’s always wrong. It has always been wrong.”
After that, he kept getting emotional at how every road he takes him to the same ending. Despite everything, Albralelie wished his teammates good luck and showed no ill intentions toward them.
Fortunately, Albralelie is not yet giving up on being an Apex Legends pro player. The pro player is currently looking for a team in a Fragger/ Support role and is extremely motivated to become the best. Moreover, Albralelie looks to be tired of being the “glue” of a team and doesn’t want to be “abandoned” so easily anymore.
