BarCraft Melbourne GSL Season 2 Finals
The very first BarCraft Melbourne was an amazing success. Dong Rae Gu and Genius put on a great spectacle and the Melbourne crowd were exceptional. I never expected so many people to come along to the event. When I checked facebook before I left to set up the event there were only 160 people ‘coming’. Thirty minutes later there were 200. By the end of the night there was very close to 400 people packed into the back room cheering and screaming. As a result we ran into a couple of problems with space, viewing and comfort.
Needless to say, this coming Saturday will see a
much improved BarCraft Melbourne experience for all!
The Exchange Hotel wants to support eSports as much as it can and have opened the entire venue for BarCraft Melbourne on May 19th at 5 pm. With a capacity of 1000 people, 7 screens and 3 bars, we will all be able to watch, enjoy and celebrate the GSL Season 2 Grand Final in comfort. I am sure MVP and Squirtle will put on an epic TvP series – I can’t wait! Go MVP!!!
Mark (aka Smashngrab from TL) has put up some photos from our Quarter Finals and Semi Finals mini BarCrafts from the past two weeks. You can see the venue and a teaser of what it will be like on Saturday. Check out his photos here on Flickr.

On the point of more eSports, the night won’t be ending as soon as MVP is crowned the GSL Champion once again, I will be putting up VODs of the finals from recent Championships such as MLG & Dreamhack. So be sure to hang around and relive these awesome matches.
Our wonderful sponsors have donated a number of prizes to be given away on the night. Grolsch will have spot prizes through out the night while ggBet will be running a virtual betting tournament. Tt eSports will have some great prizes once again, and USA Foods have some incredible packs to give away as well.
To be in the running for the prize give aways on the night make sure you ‘like‘ Silicon Sports on Facebook and ‘join‘ the GSL Grand Final event as we and the sponsors will be drawing winners from these lists on the night. If a name is drawn and they are not present, a re-draw will take place. So get liking if you haven’t already!
Special thanks to our sponsors who help make this all happen!
