AoEO has a long history of competition, and it is quite over-due for us to introduce some of the top players within the game’s competitive circle. I would like to introduce Carnage, GiveuAnxiety, PF2K, TheMista, and ZertoN. These players have shown remarkable talent in AoEO and in other games closer to ESOC’s heart. With that in mind, we had them answer some questions regarding their thoughts on the rerelease of AoEO and the Zuta Zuta Classic which is slated to begin next week!

The Zuta Zuta Classic is the first tournament for AoEO since its reopening under Project Celeste. What does this tournament mean for you?

The Zuta Zuta Classic also happens to be only the 4th AoEO tournament that TheMista has participated in. Are you excited for the chance to compete in a Bo(x) against him, and do you think you have what it takes to bring him down?

(To TheMista): do you think anyone has a solid chance of kicking you out of the tournament?
