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!

What a journey Beast 7 was. Well, actually still is since I’m writing this from the car on our ride back home (currently in Denmark with eleven hours to go). This marks my first three day tournament and also the most intense and rewarding Smash experience so far. That extra day adds a nice cushion[…]
Hey everyone, Lonpos here As you might have noticed, there has been quite a bit of discussion about the European Smash Wii U Ruleset lately and to be more specific: the stock count. The majority has had the preference for 3 stocks for some time but nowadays it seems that more and more people are pleading for 2! We (BYOC)[…]
Saturday night concluded NHSmash 3, one of the few premier dutch tournament series for smashers. The BYOCrew has done it again: we have put up a great show, the production value was once again revolutionary and almost every attendee had a great time! NHSmash is slowly setting foot as an event well run and liked[…]
Hi everyone, Lonpos here! The trailer-video of NHSmash3 is finally online! I would like to thank everyone who submitted clips through Smash, they’ve been of a great help! I also used various clips of a video called: “Smash 4 is a beautiful game” by TS4M. He lent me his permission to use the great shots[…]
I can’t believe it has been almost a week, but Smashdown World is behind us and with that my first real OOC tournament. The tourney itself was really controversial due to the schedule, planning and whatnot, but here I want to focus on my personal experience. Our stay was a nice and clean AirBnB at[…]
It has been a while since we’ve posted something new on our website. We’ve talked about going to beast and new loyalty badges for our Twitch-chat. But besides that ? Everything is just running smoothly and it’s hard to find something to write about. That is why I’m dedicating this post for a community call-out! I need[…]
Starting today, you can let everyone know your inner OG status in the twitch chat because we’ve added loyalty badges! There will be several badges representing how long you’ve been part of the BYOCsub-club. If you are subscribed to us you can rock our logo! The white-blue superstar. If you are subbed for 3 months the[…]
The BYOC team is happy to announce that we are chosen as main Smash for Wii U. streamer at BEAST 7 this February! Together with GeekyGoonSquad we will be broadcasting the tournament on the internet. In the past year we’ve had many accomplishments, but this will be our biggest achievement yet. BEAST is a yearly international[…]
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[…]
