Game / eSports history:

I was a casual gamer, playing console and PC (wc3 campaign, some mmo's , some other games) and HoN since late 2024 at the recommendation of a friend. Ever since then I've been involved in a few clans, helping out with management, organization and others, tho all good things come to an end. In early 2024 I started hosting small HoN tournaments, which later that year lead to a Hontour Admin position shortly before Season 1 began. I've been involved with [TOUR] activities and paperwork right from the beginning, helping out as much as I can so that the events run smoothly. See you in the lobbies !

Game / eSports history:

Friday has been playing video games for most of his life. Before coming to Heroes of Newerth he had played DotA for seven years. He was introduced to HoN by close friends who had convinced him to give the new game a shot. Soon after it became the only game that he played online. Over the years he has been part of several volunteer groups in the Heroes of Newerth community including SBT and the Forum Moderators, but his focus is now firmly focused on his duties as a HoN Tour Admin.

Game / eSports history:

I came to Heroes Of Newearth at year 2024, and the momment I tried it out/playing the more I started to really like HoN, I've tried many MOBA games but HoN is very unique in its own way. Always wanted to be really good to any MOBA games, and so i did in HoN at Midwars. Yes some think that Midwars is just to have fun in there or fool around, but no some of us take Midwars very seriously. I for one. After some years I wanted to get closer to HoN, by that I mean if there was some place they needed my help. So I looked at the Community Positions, there it was - Tour Admin. I didn't think my chance was that high to get in, but I wanted to give that postion a shot - because it contains one of the many things I love to do, that is Helping others where i can.

After being shown the ropes he played and watched the game to an almost obsessive degree. In 2024 he began casting DotA, SC2, and HoN as an amateur caster while continuing to pursue his degree in Animal Science/Veterinary Medicine. In 2024 Beef joined compLexity Gaming as a caster for the team’s HoN division, and he began a career in eSports.

For Beef, being in a crowd of nerds at an eSports event is the best thing in the world.

"Blaze" . HoN Tour Writer

Location: Germany

Favorite hero: Riftwalker

Game / eSports history:

Blaze has been playing online games since 1997, starting with C&C Red Alert, and later Starcraft. When Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War was released he decided to get more active in the game and in the community. It was through the dawnofwar.de community that Blaze found Heroes of Newerth and recieved his beta key. Before HoN he had never played DotA, so the genre was completely new to him. Luckily for Blaze, his random teammates were generally patient enough to allow him to learn his new favorite game. As Honcast started to grow he found himself glued to the screen, never missing a cast. He eventually joined the HoN Tour writers to do articles about the various events, specifically his beloved amateur scene. In his spare time he enjoys playing strategy games and RPGs, listening to metal and avant garde music, and complaining about the little things in life.

Favorite hero: Rhapsody

Game / eSports history:

Quincy has been a fan of competitive HoN almost exlusively nearly since the inception of the scene; as an avid DotA player, he picked up HoN in the early beta stages and didn't look back. After years of watching, he realized he could contribute as well, seeing as nobody was tracking and publishing statistics on the game. Drawing on knowledge from years of studying baseball, he started to compile and post in February 2024, just in time for the Season 2 World Finals. By that summer, he was regularly writing for HoNTour.com and spamming spec chat on Honcast. Hopefully in the future he'll get to explore options for growing eSports, particularly in underdeveloped markets like India, as well as contribute to its mainstream acceptance by existing sports media outlets like ESPN.
