Totalbiscuit to be honoured in Esports Hall of Fame

John “Totalbiscuit” Bain will be inducted into the Esports Hall of Fame at ESL One Hamburg 2018.
The Dota 2 tournament (which runs from October 26th to 28th) will recognise the prominent British content creator, who sadly passed away from cancer in May.

Opinion: Thank you Totalbiscuit, for your enormous contribution to gaming and esports

John will be the first non-player added to ESL’s Esports Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Kyle “Ksharp” Miller, Dennis “Thresh” Thong, Emil “HeatoN” Christensen and Ola “elemeNt” Moum as gaming legends.
 

“His influence on the esports scene can not be understated as his passion and support helped drive various competitive titles towards the heights they reached today.”

 
Totalbiscuit helped cover many competitive games over the years like Dota 2, Hearthstone, StarCraft, Smite and more. He was also a StarCraft II caster, produced a WoW Radio and Azeroth Daily series, and even had a pro esports team known as Axiom. He did his own Shoutcast Invitational tournaments.

ESL said of Totalbiscuit in an announcement post: “His influence on the esports scene can not be understated as his passion and support helped drive various competitive titles towards the heights they reached today. He left behind a body of work unmatched by any other while still managing to give a voice to indie scenes and breakout players.
“His contributions to the industry are immeasurable and as such we are honored to induct him into the Esports Hall of Fame as the first non-player.
“His legacy will live on.”
