It was an experiment, we wanted to see if something like Newgioh would work or not. For the last year or so we've been trying to make our tournaments a bit more varied and unique, which includes trying out new things that may or may not work. If an event is cancelled, it's probably a staff-team decision and not a one-person shot calling. We try to predict where a tournament is going, if we see little hope for it to see light, then there is no need to invest more resources into it.
Though, this is not something final. We'll seek to host the Newgioh tournament again once we see there is a chance for it to thrive and see success while not being shut down by lack of interest.
I'm sure @Solstice
could provide more information concerning this matter since he's the man in charge of our tournaments. I'm not personally involved in such decisions so I can't really provide information on why such decision was made.
