The boys and girls with the need for speed are back once again for another exciting edition of the annual summer event known as Summer Games Done Quick. Ran by Speed Demo Archives, SGDQ brings together all of Twitch’s speedrunners such as Siglemic and Cosmowright underneath one roof to speedrun some of the most well known and some obscure titles in the name of charity. Running from the 25th to the 29th, SDA will be playing for Doctors Without Borders/Medecin Sans Frontiers (MSF) an organization that works in nearly 70 countries providing medical aid to those most in need regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation.
You can find them over on their Twitch channel live where you can find all the information you need such as the schedule and the all important donate button. The staff here wish each speedrunner the best of luck in getting the World Record or a new Personal Best for the game they play while raising money for such a fantastic charity.
Seems like a lot is happening within the world of Esports as of late. With the announcement of the World Finals, the upcoming Gamescom International Wildcard tournament and the fact that the LCS summer split is already halfway done, players are certainly feeling the burn to do better and get those all important wins. Given all the upcoming events and the pressure to succeed, you’d think the players would be solely focused on making it to the World Finals.
Confirmed on Saintvicious’ stream (post rather), One Nation of Gamers and eBay will be teaming up with Curse, Evil Geniuses and Root Gaming for charity. Set up as a 1v1 tournament, players from Curse and Evil Geniuses will compete against each other, each representing their favorite charity. Throughout the event, they’ll be auctioning off keyboards, collectibles from past gaming events, mice, signed jerseys and more. The winner of the 1v1 tournament will have all funds raised be donated to the charity they chose to represent.
Along with the funds raised, eBay has offered to donate up to $5000 if we, the fans, can show them a ton of new listings and activity on their new “My Gadgets” tool. You can show support by tweeting the pros and who you think will win by using the #ebaycharitygg. The tournament will be hosted by Curse’s Saintvicious and Evil Geniuses’ Snoopeh on July 24th at 8:00 PM EDT on ONOG’s stream. More information about the set up and which charity the players chose to represent can be found here.
Personally, I hope Voyboy wins it all as he represents St. Jude’s Children Research hospital, a hospital I had to go to often as a child growing up.
