Sunday Night BarCraft After MLG Anaheim

BY Andrew Miesner / May 21, 2012


LOS ANGELES, CA – MAY 21st, 2012 – Today, Evil Geniuses, Team Liquid, compLexity, and Team Dignitas, four of the eSports industry’s finest professional teams and communities, are excited to announce a community party on the night of Sunday, June 10th, entitled “Sunday Night BarCraft.”  The party, sponsored by Monster Energy, Twitch.TV, Alienware, and Kingston HyperX, will be held in the Ballroom of the Hilton Anaheim Hotel (less than a minute’s walk away from the Anaheim Convention Center).  It will begin at 8:30pm, after the MLG Anaheim event’s conclusion, and it will be free of charge and open to all ages.

Fans and Community members alike can expect appearances from their favorite EG, Liquid, coL, and dignitas pro players, as well as other eSports broadcasters and celebrities such as djWHEAT, SirScoots, and Slasher. For a full list of player and celebrity appearances, please see the event’s flyer (above). In addition to those listed, there will also be some very special, secret guest appearances from other eSports celebrities not included on the flyer.

Players and celebrities will be available for pictures and autograph signings from 8:30-10pm, during which time there will also be a player/celebrity panel and Q&A on the event’s main stage. From 10-11, we’ll have pro player showmatches and fan-to-pro challenges, live on stage, which means that anyone attending has the chance to be picked out of the crowd and brought up on stage to play with (and/or against) his or her favorite player. We’ll close the event with a live episode of Live on Three from 11pm-12am, and there will be plenty of giveaways from the party’s sponsors throughout the night, including a brand new Gaming Notebook from Alienware!

A full summary of the party’s schedule and venue information can also be found in the flyer (above). We hope you’ll all join us for what will almost certainly be the largest, awesomest eSports after-party the community’s seen to date. And really, since the trip from the Anaheim Convention Center to the Hilton will take you approximately two minutes on foot, if you’re going to MLG Anaheim, you have no excuse not to come! For those of you who can’t make it, though, the party’s main stage will be streamed live on Twitch.TV/OneMoreGameTV, where you’ll still be able to catch the player/celebrity panels, showmatches, fan-to-pro challenges, and the live episode of Live on Three.

So, whether online or in person, make sure you join us on Sunday, June 10th at 8:30pm! We all look forward to seeing you there. Make sure you arrive early – the first 1,000 attendees will receive a limited edition Sunday Night BarCraft autograph card (preview below), featuring the EG, dignitas, coL, and Liquid logos, which you can use to collect the signatures of your favorite pro players and eSports celebrities!
