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.
