THiS IS BRING YOUR OWN CONTROLLER
BYOC’s mission is to develop the European eSports, particularly within the Smash Bros scene. Starting with the Netherlands. The dream started when both nephews attended a smash tournament in the Netherlands. Lonpos just graduated from Art School and was looking for way to combine both passions in one; Games and Theatre. Binkie decided to cut the cord and began hosting a tournament. Lonpos saw the potential of their combined workforces and quickly joined. Those forces combined seemed to match perfectly and now they both have the desire to grow and show the love they have for the Smash bros community. More people were eager to join the BYOCrew and now, with the help of the full team, we've established two tournament series within the Netherlands and we've grown to the premier streaming source of the dutch scene! With this website Lonpos & Binkie hope to achieve a focus point for the audience, which can be seen as a hub for fellow gamers in the Smash bros community.
We keep moving forward with the newest technologies and we work hard to keep ahead of time.
With two series in the Netherlands we've acquired the necessary skills to organize a Tournament smoothly.
We provide enthousiasts a space to learn. Many shoutcasters have flourished. Now is the time to polish their strenghts
We all have deep passion for the Smash Bros series and continue to do so. We will work hard for you and the community!

So, last weekend was fun. I never thought that the first time going out of country for Smash would be an event like this; commentating Smash in Dutch in front of a live casual audience at Gameforce in Belgium. Starting off with the trip; we had a half hour delay on our Thalys, but besides[…]
Hello everyone! We found that the previous web-design was a bit cumbersome. We had to manually update our Tournament page and make a seperate ‘event’ for you to register and lookup the attendees. Also we had a schedule page which was a drag to update. (Don’t get me wrong, I like things neat!) Manual manual[…]

Hello everyone! We already had a twitter account from the beginning but we didn’t used it, we didn’t saw a use for it. The dutch community doesn’t use Twitter that much and it has decreased rapidly in the past year. We still wanted to expand our wings (get it?) and decided to use our twitter[…]
As some of you may have noticed, we updated our housestyle with a new look. We already teased you a bit with the profile pictures of our members, they’ve all been edited to a Low Polygon style portrait. (Making a Low Polygon portrait is hard work but very rewarding!) Roland took the time to unify[…]
