After months of preparation we are finally ready to announce the HEAT Charity – Live from Berlin Tournament in which 4 Players, selected for their skills, looks and passion for the game, will play for their glory and a charity of their choice. It will take place at February 4th, starting at 14:00 CET
None other than Totalbiscuit will commentate on site in Berlin at the CK-99 – The Next Level Lounge, joined by Soe who will be the event's host.
Players and the Charity they support:
Type.Vitriolic ReaL : charity: water
Millenium Tarson : Nobody's Children Foundation
Grubby: International Fund for Animal Welfare
(ReaL replaces Phoenix who decided to participate in next GSL Code A Qualifiers ; ReaL recently participated in the Homestory IV Cup and made it to the Quarterfinals, only narrowly losing 2:3 to later finalist Sound.)
The Tournament will take place in the CK-99 – The Next Level Lounge. It offers a great atmosphere and ideal technical conditions for the players and visitors alike. There will be a different seating than shown on the images to make room for 300 Visitors.

1st placed charity gets 40% of stream revenue
2nd placed charity gets 30% of stream revenue
3rd placed charity gets 20% of stream revenue
4th placed charity gets 10% of stream revenue
After the main tournament there will be fun games played as long as the players want to. For example games against the audience with ever increasing real life handicaps (eyepatch, 2 fingers taped together, mirrored display, etc.). Maybe some 2vs2 or 4vs4. We are open to suggestions from you, this is the part where we can go a bit crazy.
We try to keep the expenses as low as possible but there is some costs which you can’t avoid even if everyone organising it is doing it for free. This is mostly travel expenses for the Players and Casters and equipment rental, so parts of the sponsorship money and entrance ticket revenue will be used to cover those expenses, anything which is left will be also distributed accordingly.
For donations of viewers we will provide the option to have them donate to their favourite charity instead of spreading it, as some might only like 1 or 2 charities. We are still considering different options on how to handle donations but we will find a solution which is 100% transparent and has lowest possible transaction costs.
- A free HD (720p) Stream
A high quality production
Non-stop Starcraft action
2 Ingame observers allowing us to show Picture in Picture and Split Screen in appropriate situations (don’t worry we will use that only when it really makes sense and not to show off that we can do it)
A small surprise (really would like to announce it already but it just isn’t in a state yet where we can do it; lets just say it’s something nobody else did before, just a small thing though)
Overall a fun event in a lighthearted atmosphere right before the serious European tournament season really starts with Assembly Winter later in February
300 Entrance Tickets will be available for 12 Euro each. You can order them here: http://www.heat-tournament.com/highlights/tournament-announcement/
