BarCraft-Impressions when HeroMarine wins EPS

We watched the EPS Finals live at our BarCraft in Cologne on December 15th 2013 and witnessed local hero Gabriel “HeroMarine” Segat win (his first) EPS. People are cheering “Gabi” as nickname for Gabriel – who even showed up with his trophy later (photos here)
Thanks to ESL for the great show, Gabriel for his plays and of course all our visitors for the great atmosphere <3

Awesome goodies at our XMAS-BarCraft

Our XMAS-BarCraft is approaching and you might get your best gift at our place already nine days before Christmas!

We’ll raffle a StarCraft 1 Action-Ffigure “Firebat” (signed by Grubby, Kaelaris & HasuObs)

How esports officials could support BarCrafts & Co even better – and why they should

I’m not only organizing BarCrafts in Cologne but similar events for League of Legends (Bar of Legends, http://lol-koeln.de) and did some “PubStomps” for DotA 2.
Now I wrote an article on our LoL-website where I describe the problems, party organizers usually face and what the industry (tournament organizers, game developers, sponsores, etc) could do to minimize them.

Additionally, I explain why I think that these “viewing parties” (to keep the term as neutral for all different gaming titles) could become very important for grassroots esports development.
