[Bris] Button-Smash 2016 – Cancelled


Today Tulf from Keep ‘et Classy announced that the Brisbane major tournament Button-Smash was cancelled for 2016. Button-Smash was scheduled to take place on March 5th-6th, however the decision was made to cancel due to low registration numbers.

Here is the announcement from Tulf that appeared on the Button-Smash event page:

Hey everyone. With 3 weeks outside of the tournament and with under 10 entrants I’m quite devastated to announce we will be pulling the plug on BS for this year. However this isn’t the end of the tournament that weekend.

I’d like to run a larger scale tournament than our usual biweeklies. We will be relocating to guf for this and entry price will be lowered dramatically. If you have already paid the difference will be refunded.

Tournaments to be ran will be:
SFV, blazblue, guilty gear and smash if theres interest for it. I understand smash has frequent meets already.

With our partnership with guf in place sfv will hopefully be ran on pc. We will be testing on release to make sure its stable and able for tournament.
I’m extremely sorry to those looking forward to a major tournament, I’m quite devestated and this decision doesn’t come lightly.

Aaron “Tulf” Costello

This is sad news for everyone that was looking forward to Button-Smash. Fortunately a downsized event may happen in place of Button-Smash. We’ll provide details of this event once they have been formally announced by Keep ‘et Classy.
