A Busy and Fulfilling Weekend
Last weekend was probably the busiest, yet most fulfilling weekend for Bushiroad. In the span of 2 days, we have successfully held 4 Bushiroad Spring Fest Cardfight!! Vanguard Team Leagues across our 3 main regions: North America, Europe and Asia-Oceania.
Bushiroad staff have travelled to the 4 cities: Toronto in Canada, Brussels in Belgium, Sydney in Australia and Surabaya in Indonesia. Let’s take a look at how the events in those cities were like.
Canada – Toronto
Toronto, a location on the eastern side of Canada, is home to many dedicated and skilled cardfighters. Bushiroad has been very humbled by its city with its strength in the community. Event after event, Toronto shows a strong perpetual growth in its attendance. Players who compete at these events are highly skilled and carry vast knowledge of card strategies. We have a very friendly and helpful community in Canada. The card players have an amazing dedication toward our Bushiroad Spring Fest and Bushiroad World Championship events, to the extent of traveling from afar in order to compete in the Bushiroad tournaments.
Many players are eagerly awaiting the new G guardian mechanic, which will release a plethora of new strategies for all to experience. The upcoming VGE-G-BT07 Glorious Bravery of Radiant Sword is definitely something everyone is looking forward to as well. Players are also pretty eager to test their mettle against players from all over the globe, with much anticipation over the release of Cardfight!! Online.

Belgium – Brussels
After almost three years of absence, Bushiroad is finally back in Belgium and had a huge turn out!
Brussels, the capital of Belgium, is a friendly city and offers special spots for sightseeing and many gourmet dishes. Don’t forget to try Belgium’s self-made waffles and chocolate!
Outpost Brussels is home to all Benelux players. Players from Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany visit this shop frequently while in Brussels. It’s a welcoming place with food and drinks served. Computer terminals are also available for gamers to play the latest online game titles. You can probably also enjoy Cardfight!! Online here soon.
The crowd is very friendly, I shall say, the Belgium Cardfight!! Vanguard community is one of the most competitive I have ever encountered. Being on the top 8 table is their goal! And they offer a great deal of fairness and sportsmanship. Even after years and years of playing Cardfight!! Vanguard, cardfighters here are never fed up. They love playing the game with friends, buying new cards and discussing about new deck strategies. Many players from Belgium and surrounding countries also travel to various bigger events around Europe, to play competitively and make new friends.

Australia – Sydney
Over the last weekend, quiet Bankstown, Sydney was rocked by an onslaught of Cardfighters who have travelled from across Australia to compete in the annual Bushiroad Spring Fest 2016 Cardfight!! Vanguard Team League! The venue this year was really fancy and everyone had a good time meeting new and familiar faces. Many players have also expressed their excitement at the upcoming Cardfight!! Online and are eagerly awaiting its release.
After a long and intense day of cardfighting, team “Andy is always a mess” emerged victorious and were crowned champions! A huge round of applause for all the winners!
* Fun fact! – The Andy in their team name refers to the Head Judge of BSF2016 Australia!

Indonesia – Surabaya
It was an exciting Sunday for Cardfighters in Surabaya! For the first time ever, Bushiroad Spring Fest organized a second event in Indonesia, and it was Surabaya for this circuit! Since it is rare for large-scale Bushiroad tournaments to be held outside the capital city Jakarta, players in the region were really excited about the event. Among the cardfighters attending, many hailed from cities outside Surabaya. Some traveled from nearby ones such as Malang, but we also had players flying great distances from farther cities such as Banjarmasin, Jakarta, and Bali! Despite the registration only starting around 8:00am, lines had already started forming a few hours before. The earlier crowd even arrived at the venue since dawn!
Many enthusiastic players were among the crowd, cheering loudly after their triumphant wins, and hollering upon their unfortunate losses. Still, almost every game ended with honorable handshakes and “GGWP (Good Game, Well Played)” remarks were exchanged. Judging from the smiles on everyone’s faces, I’d say everyone had a great time!
