05.30.2020 - GOVERNMENT ENDS STATE OF EMERGENCY - GOON GAMING ESPORTS RE-OPENS ON 06.03.2020!!!


The government has ended its shutdown of entertainment businesses, but they are still advising caution. Goon Gaming Esports will open its doors on June 3rd, 2020. We still have some things we need to prepare and cleaning to do before we can open. We also need to update the software and games on all of the systems because they have been shut down for quite some time and many updates have come out which we've been working on since the government announcement on May 26th.

Caution:

Please be aware that the virus is still a potential danger and so we all need to be cautious. We ask that if you attend Goon Gaming Esports, you wear a mask, and wash your hands with alcohol. We will provide alcohol wash stations. We also ask that if possible, all players bring their own equipment, such as mice, keyboards, headsets, controllers, and cables. This will help in preventing the spread of any diseases. Our staff will be doing their best to clean equipment with alcohol, but we want to reduce risk as much as possible. We also advise that people do not sit next to other players and space people out as much as possible which we will be trying our best to do as well.

05.06.2020 - GOVERNMENT REQUEST TO CLOSE - UPDATE 2


Well, it is as we feared and a lot of people probably saw this coming. The government has indicated that they want to extend the closure of all non-essential businesses till May 31st, 2020 and possibly even further than that or possibly less than that. So until further notice, GOON GAMING ESPORTS will continue being closed. We hope everyone stays safe and healthy. We will open as soon as the government gives everyone the ok to do so.

04.09.2020 - GOVERNMENT REQUEST TO CLOSE


The government of Japan is asking that all businesses close their doors for the next 2 weeks, so we will comply. Sorry to anyone who was looking forward to playing with us. We are doing our best to work around the current situation, but health and safety are a priority. Please stay healthy and stay safe! If the government requests, we may be closed longer than 2 weeks but at the moment, we are planning to re-open on April 24th, 2020.

04.05.2020 - EVENTS AND FUTURE PLANS


Due to the current situation and atmosphere surrounding the coronavirus, it is impossible for us at this time to plan any events or hold to our current schedule. We have been unable to get our high speed internet installed which has caused serious delays in getting our systems ready, as most games are installed through download. People are mostly staying in and not going to social gatherings at this time to prevent the spread of the virus. The government is also advising all people to stay home and only go out if ncessary.

We are currently open for business, but tournaments, leagues, and clubs will all be postponed until further notice. We will also be closing 2 days a week and shortening our hours. We will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays until further notice and our hours will only be from 2:00pm to 9:00pm on the days we are open. The website will be updated to reflect these changes as soon as possible. People are welcome to come and use our facilities from Wednesday to Sunday from 2:00pm to 9:00pm but of course, we ask people to use caution. If you are experiencing any symptoms of the virus, please do as the government advises, and self-quarantine. We hope everyone will be able to get through this difficult time and we wish you all good health. Let's all look out for one another, and take care of one another.

04.04.2020 - OPENING DAY


Our opening day wasn't quite what we had in mind but we had a few guests and people got to try out our systems and had quite a lot of fun playing some Minecraft and Rocket league. We had a couple of first timers here too, but I feel more than ever that this place is really going to work. It's really going to be exciting once we can get a full room and a real event going! Looking forward to it! Here are a few pictures we took.

03.26.2020 - QR CODE


Our apologies to anyone who tried to use our QR code on our store front. The account had expired but we hadn't received any notification! The QR code on our store front should now be working! Again, we apologize for any confusion or inconvenience!

03.19.2020 - TOURNAMENT REGISTRATION!


We'd just like to let everyone know, that even though we are closed until April 4th, people are still welcome to come and register for upcoming Rocket League Tournament that will be on our opening day! We need 48 registrations to make this event really happen so ask your friends. You don't have to be good at the game, its an open tournament, all levels of ability are welcome to join and have fun!

03.16.2020 - UNFORTUNATELY....


In order to avoid the spread of the virus and due to difficulties in getting our high speed Internet, Goon Gaming Esports will be open only to members who have already applied, in cooperation with national requests. In addition, those who wish to join are welcome to visit and join at the beginning of April. The virus has had a great impact on businesses around the world. We hope that after this difficult time passes, we can finally get the fun going at Goon Gaming. We're all going to need it after all of this stress and worry.

We've been fortunate that Japan has had no major infection. We look forward to seeing new members in April and having a great time playing our favorite games together!

02.29.2020 - ANOTHER OPENING DELAY!


We've got some bad news folks. The Internet company that was supposed to install our internet on the 15th of February were unable to do it, and have since told us that they won't be able to install it until March 4th. We will be unable to install it in time for the opening, so unfortunately. On top of that, we now have this Corona Virus issue in Japan, where the government is now closing down schools. This kind of business is relatively new, so it is very hard to predict and plan how things are going to go but viruses and delays in getting our Internet installed were certainly not in our plans. There have been many pitfalls, government red tape, and technical issues to deal with all of which have contributed to delaying our work.

We apologize, but this also means our opening tournament will have to be postponed. We are looking at April 4th, 2020 as the new date for the tournament. We'll keep you posted here as to if there will be any changes to the event. We are right now hoping to open on March 14th, 2020 because we should have our Internet by then unless there are more problems getting it installed. Even with the Internet however, we still have the Corona virus to deal with, and since the government is closing schools for 2 weeks, we thought we should delay our opening for 2 weeks as well.

If there will be more delays, we will post that information here. We are really looking forward to opening and having gamers come here to have a great time. Thank you to all of you who have been waiting patiently. I assure you, we are working as quickly and as hard as we can on this. I work 16 hours a day on this business, and I haven't taken a day off in over 2 months. It is my number one priority right now.

02.19.2020 - PRETTY LIGHTS!


We got our front signage installed today! Looks great! Can't wait to see what it looks like when it gets really dark outside.
