The streamer went on Twitter to explain his experience as an eSports team owner after Disguised’s third consecutive loss in Split 2
Popular Twitch streamer, YouTuber and the owner of Diguised, Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang, has recently opened up about the struggles of owning an eSports team with little to no experience.

The team’s owner also touched on the frustration faced by the players after facing a loss, saying, “They all message me after each loss apologizing for their performances and it really sucks to see them so defeated.”

DSG’s recent losing streak has been unexpected, especially after acquiring Jaccob ‘yay’ Whiteaker before Split 2 started. Many expected the former star member of OpTic and Cloud9 to make Disguised one of the better squads of the Challengers League. However, the roster hasn’t secured any victory so far after these changes.
