Brian Krzanich will be taking some time out of his busy schedule to play a little League of Legends "ARAM" game mode at the SAP Center in San Jose, happening as part of a charity side-event being held at the Intel Extreme Masters tournament.




Said to be kicking off in front of 7,500 live spectators, Michal Blicharz, VP of Pro Gaming at ESL, has labeled this as a brave move. He said in a recent press release that Krzanich will be going on stage and is "willing to showcase his skills to a very demanding audience of over a hundred thousand people," commenting on the fact that it will also be live streamed.


The money donated to charity will be based on completing in-game objectives and tasks, set to happen from 6 p.m PT on Saturday, November 21.
