Blizzard’s tribute to TotalBiscuit

TotalBiscuit commemorative bundle now available in StarCraft II

John ‘TotalBiscuit’ Bain, a video game commentator and critic, who lost his 4 year-long battle with cancer on the 24th of May, has just received a posthumous tribute in StarCraft II. The Cynical Brit had a major impact on the scene, sponsoring various SHOUTcraft events as well as founding Axiom, a South Korean progaming team. 

TotalBiscuit’s involvement with Blizzard games goes back to the early days of World of Warcraft, when, serving as the owner and operator of WoW Radio, Mr. Bain hosted a variety of talk shows and podcasts revolving around the critically-acclaimed MMORPG. Blizzard, recognising TotalBiscuit’s commitment to quality, invited the Brit to provide coverage of BlizzCon 2005

Having cast various StarCraft II events after the game’s premiere, TotalBiscuit eventually found himself sponsoring tournaments out of his own pocket. SHOUTcraft competitions, which ran until December 2017, put more emphasis on providing quality entertainment to the StarCraft II community, whilst creating opportunities for players to prove themselves in a diverse range of tourneys. 

Mr. Bain, alongside his wife, Genna Bain, whom he’d met at one of the BlizzCon events he’d attended, founded Axiom eSports on September 26, 2012, picking up Korean Protoss player Choi ‘CranK’ Jae Won. Not long after the team signed additional players, expanding the roster to allow them to participate in the Global StarCraft II Team League, having partnered with Team Acer for the first season of 2013. Axiom disbanded in October 2015. 

The commemorative bundle contains 18 cosmetic in-game items, such as portraits, sprays, and decals. All proceedings will go to TotalBiscuit’s family.
