The second episode filmed at the Queensland fighting game major Buttonsmash features the man with a million names, each one more nonsensical and meme-tastic than the last. Also known as CoolzInferno, CoolzHAMYOLO, 2DSatan, Soji-killah- the wacky Weng from Western Australia is a tournament organiser in Perth and a very frequent flier in the Australian tournament circuit.
He’s known for mercilessly popping off on his hapless roommates (me) and his unique Taylor Swift-lovin’ Tinder-reviewin’ absurdly hilarious personality. We discuss his time at Buttonsmash, the WA scene, and what life lessons you could learn from the FGC. Hope you guys like it!

Where: Abbotsford Masonic Hall
141 Gipps St, Abbotsford, 3067
Cost: $10 Entry + Tournaments (Expected pot fee is $5 per tournament)

BRING YOUR OWN CONTROLLER
Since we’re no longer in the Shadowlogic venue, there aren’t going to be a list of Sticks for people to borrow, and while we should have enough equipment to run the tournaments, everyone will appreciate anybody who can bring setups for casuals and DIYs.
HOW TO GET THERE
Park or get off at Collingwood Station…
Walk either down the alley, or down the main street
We hope to see you all there on Saturday and we can’t wait to see who’s in top form leading up to BAM!
I was just up in Queensland in March for their annual major- Buttonsmash and managed to film a few episodes there. The first Buttonsmash special features the man behind the entire event and the main Brisbane tournament organiser, Aaron “Tulf” Costello. Aaron entered the scene about two years ago, being mainly an Injustice player.
At the time, the scene in Brisbane needed a boost with long-time organisers like Slapper Joe and JBHewitt wanting to move onto other things. Aaron and his Keep ‘Et Classy organisation stepped to fill the void, and he’s a great example of how you don’t have to be an FGC veteran to have a huge impact on your scene, all you need is the passion for growing the scene, and Aaron has that in spades.
Thanks to all the Buttonsmash staff for a great major, I had a great time, and hope you guys enjoy this episode.
