Today, a press release was published from BUCK regarding the "no plans for BUCK 2015" tweet, shortly after the events of last week caused by that one interview. So yes; bottom line expect no BUCK 2015 unless you buy the premium tickets. And lots of them.
BUCK was known for their bragging drama over their huge budgets but take out the bragging their is fact; the britbong land is notorious for being expensive and there is a huge amount of money and effort taken to run the con. And a tl;dr of the article could be expressed in a haiku:
There will be no BUCK;
Instead a smaller event.
Unless they get funds
Haha okay no. It's not a plea for money, but rather an explanation of the future of BUCK. It's likely if, unless a dramatic rise in attendees, there will be no full BUCK next year but rather smaller events or a smaller scale convention.
Regarding last posts accusations of BUCK's large debt and a-bit-too-young management, another BUCK staff member anonymously commented "We didn't have anyone below the age of 17 on team last year. Plus our Guest Manager who contacted all the VAs was a twenty something year old man, not a 16 year old girl. We definitely were not £20k in the red last year or we certainly wouldn't be running this year. So whoever your source is obviously doesn't know what they're talking about."
What do you think of this new announcement? Let us know in the comments after the break!
