DEVASTATION a no-go this year

25 09 2012

If you haven’t heard, the Phoenix New Times’ Ben Leatherman broke the news that DEVASTATION would not be happening in 2012. According to an article published late last week, DEVASTATION director Robb Chiarini confirmed that the event was cancelled and more information surrounding the cancellation would be released sometime this week.

The drop of DEVASTATION may come as no surprise to some, as many local gamers had suspected the event would not come to pass this year. Hazem Ibrahim of Team Hazmat stated in a stream discussion shortly after the Revelations 2012 incidents, that it looked unlikely that DEVASTATION would occur given the timing and lack of advertisement.

Despite many rumblings about the tournament, it still is another big event lost for Arizona; joining up with DESERTBASH, another major gaming event cancelled this year. Keep with The Pause Button for more details as the story develops.
