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!

Dear (Dutch) Smash community, Last weekend we’ve had the honor to stream Ys hosted by the stellar Elysium Team. It was one of the most exciting tourneys from recent memory and personally the most fun I’ve had commentating! That being said, unfortunately not all Smash news can be joyful. Counterpick has been a staple of[…]
Two new and great additions to the BYOC team! During Counterpick 49 we had announced that Muk (Wesley Meijer) and Mad Ice King (Wendel Rebel) joined the BYOC team! As BYOC continually grows it keeps getting harder to manage multiple important tasks with few people. Thus we were carefully searching for reliable talented individuals for[…]
The website’s schedule has gotten one major update this week. This update gives (Non-BYOC) Tournament Organizers acces to our website so they can create their own events and publish them directly on the agenda. The key focus of this schedule-update is to resolve some clarity issues within the scene. There are many ways to let people[…]
On March 24th to 26th, 2017, 2GGamings tournament: Civil War will commence. The most hyped up tournament of 2017 will feature a lot (all) of top players and an immense high price pot. This is a tournament so important you need to be there as a pro player! The compendium During the upcoming weeks of the[…]
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[…]
