Overview[edit]

The HungryApp ESports League Special Match, or HEL Special Match, was a series of show-match tournaments organized and broadcasted by HungryApp. HungryApp, which specializes in mobile game development, broadcasts on both on Youtube and live at Afreeca. The matches were casted by a number of former OSL and MSL commentators.[1]

HEL Special Match #5 was the first in the series to be held outside of the HungryApp studio, with the event conducted at the G-Star 2014 game exhibition in Busan, South Korea, in association with Kongdoo, an e-Sports management agency.[2][3]
