Berlin-based esports club PENTA announces a partnership with BCON, the innovative gaming controller from Germany. The newly formed team consists of extraordinary athletes and will field a squad in Apex Legends, where it will compete with other top athletes. PENTA.BCON also announced an application phase to give motivated players the chance to become a part of the team.

Under the name PENTA.BCON the new PENTA unit enters the digital battlefields as a partnership between the popular esports brand PENTA and the recently awarded gaming wearable BCON. The portable device complements the input from computer mice and keyboards for more interaction in the game. For players with disabilities the innovative device serves as technical tool to equalize physical handicap.
For PENTA’s Team Director Dennis H.-Schulz this partnership is a perfect symbiosis: “Esports and gaming play a more and more important role in our society. That obviously also includes people with handicaps. PENTA.BCON is lived inclusion!“ With Dennis ‚Wheely‘ Winkens and Daniel ‘Skrelldorn’ Ulrich the newly formed team signed two high-profile players. Both athletes have already practiced with the BCON for quite a while. While Ulrich equalizes a dysplasia of this right arm, Winkens uses the device on his head – the only body part he can move after and accident. “It’s all a mental thing”, Winkens explains.

From now on PENTA gives performance-oriented players with handicaps the chance to become a part of this unique team. Besides the equipment with a BCON the new team member will appear at this year’s gamescom. Furthermore, PENTA.BCON will participate in regular Apex Legends tournaments – without any special treatment.
