Make no mistake, war is coming. With all its glory... and all its horror...

Ireland’s premier Starcraft 2 tournament returns to Q-Con for the eighth year in a row! Players from across the isle will battle it out for the prestigious title of Q-Con XXV champion! So sharpen your psi-blades, rally your troops and raise your APM to battle it out with the finest Starcraft players Ireland has to offer!

If you’re one of the many fans who don’t play the game but still get nerd chills from watching the sickest Marine splits, we have a dedicated spectator area where you can kick back, watch the games and be entertained by some of the most knowledgeable and comedic shoutcasters in Ireland!

So whether you’re a veteran of competitive space warfare or a casual spectator, we hope you celebrate Q-Con’s 25th anniversary in the Koprulu sector!

Hell... it’s about time.

(Please note that this is an over 18 event, and only those with an age verified wristband will be able to attend and participate)
