Panda Global’s Chief of Staff, Josh “Jaaahsh” Marcotte, has announced that he, alongside the rest of Smash’N’Splash’s tournament organizing staff, will no longer be involved in future installments of the event series.
The tweet reads as follows,
The Head TOs for nearly every game at Smash'N'Splash 5 are not returning next year for Smash'N'Splash 6, myself included. Here is our statement, with a text transcript to follow. pic.twitter.com/kBuO3lJQU4— PG | Jaaahsh (@Jaaahsh) November 26, 2019
He and the other TOs cite that conditions over the years got harder to keep up with; coupled with firing the former head floor TO Aaron Tollerud, they’ve lost confidence in the management behind the event. They urge players to only attend events that support their event staffs sufficiently.
