AI was temporarily saved by the owners of Diamond Plaza during the fateful week of 1/15. However, long story short, the county has made an overriding decision and made AI file for a brand new business license, which would keep AI unable to operate for nearly a year, and cost vast sums of money (for license renewal). The owners of AI has decided to permanently close down with 2/26 as its last day of operation, albeit having invested back into many brand new games since 1/15.
With that said, there ARE 2 AE setups right now… So:
This is the last time (FOR REALS) you will get to experience the OG-Triple-OG, longest-running, the most hype tournament action at AI.
Shoo probably won’t show up but he’s always there in my heart. Homoness.

Pre-reg on this thread to reserve your spot, and in-person registration & fee collection will take place at 1:30pm. There is a 64-man cap on this tournament – although I’d like to let everyone play, 2 arcade setups with 64 people will already take a while, there’s no helping it.
$6 to the pot + $4 venue fee = $10 to enter
- :party: For the duration of the tournament, inserting tokens will be mandatory, WIN OR LOSE. 1-token 1-play. :party:*
