Yesterday saw the launch of the first major European Barcraft Network. BCON aspires to grow the community by bringing organizers and hosts together and create a strong network of eSports enthusiasts.
Barcraft Connect was formed by several Barcraft organizers brought together by the passion for the game. With 10 European members at launch and growing all the time it seems like they mean businesses and are here to stay. Any Barcraft organizer can join in and share the wealth of experience and knowledge of previous members. This is the first major Barcraft network to come out of Europe and with such a strong launch we can only look ahead for a bright future for eSports.
David "Seekfried" Krause, one of the founders of BCON, had this to say:
