"inklin" . head admin

Location: Europe

Favorite hero: Pollywog Priest / Empath

Game / eSports history:

I was a casual gamer, playing console and PC (wc3 campaign, some mmo's , some other games) and HoN since late 2010 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 2012 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 !

Favorite hero: Dampeer

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.

Kyle "Beef" Bautista . eSports Media Manager

Location: United States

Favorite hero: Engineer

Game / eSports history:

Beef has been involved in competitive gaming since 2007, when he was a high rated player in the WoW Arena scene. After being exposed to WC3 and SC:BW at Blizzcon events he got his first taste of eSports. In 2009 Beef was introduced to HoN by his WoW partner, the legendary Merlini. After being shown the ropes he played and watched the game to an almost obsessive degree. In 2011 he began casting DotA, SC2, and HoN as an amateur caster while continuing to pursue his degree in Animal Science/Veterinary Medicine. In 2012 Beef joined compLexity Gaming as a caster for the team’s HoN division, and he began a career in eSports. Since then Beef has been continually involved in all things HoN eSports, including casting major LAN events, organizing large tournaments, and managing the HoN Tour Writers. Additionally, Beef is part of the compLexity Gaming Management Team where he helps to run one of the largest and most respected eSports teams in North America. 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.

A jack-of-all-trades, Fantasy has covered a wide array of games including HoN, Starcraft 2, CS:GO, DOTA 2, and Hearthstone. In the past Fantasy has held various positions in respected organizations like fragster.de, Blackfade, and GosuGamers.
