    There's nothing quite like a celebration, and there's no celebration quite like a tournament of the best teams competitive Splatoon has to offer!

    For the one-year anniversary of the launch of Splatoon on Nintendo Wii U, Squidboards is proud to present:

    The Splatoon Anniversary Invitational (SAI), an online, double-elimination event on Saturday, May 28th. Sixteen teams invited from four official qualifier tournaments will battle it out to be crowned a new Splatoon champion!


    To qualify for the main event, you must earn qualifying points. To earn qualifying points, you must play in the official qualifying events. Out of all the teams that earn points, only the top sixteen teams with the most points will be invited. There's no minimum or maximum to the number of events you can join or points you can earn.

    Head to each tournament's event page to sign-up. If you do acquire any qualifying points, they'll be tracked and featured on the Invitational event page.

      So this is why KT told me not to try to run a one year anniversary tournament;)

      Looks exciting! Can't wait!

      There's going to be something with the same magnitude as this around that time, but don't expect Ink or Sink 2.
