[SIZE=16px]Join us from May 24th to 26th of 2013 in Chicago, IL for the most inclusive tournament experience on the planet: Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament 9! While the previous installments were huge successes, we still have changes in store UFGT9, including an all new venue.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=16px]rosemont-il-hotel-our-neighborhood-top.jpg?w=640&h=189[/SIZE]
[SIZE=16px]New Venue: Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare[/SIZE]
[SIZE=16px]Venue Features:[/SIZE]
  • 15,300 sq/ft ballroom (up from a total of 6,000 sq/ft last year). This massive space will give you all the room you need to game with your friends, compete in our tournaments, or relax in the fun and games area.
  • Welcome to Chicago. Our venue is only one stop on the CTA Blue Line train from the O’Hare International Airport. Getting to us has never been easier or cheaper. If you are willing to walk a half mile from the CTA station to the hotel, it will only cost you $2.25 to ride the train. Additionally, the Blue Line train leads right into the heart of Chicago proper. If you want to be a tourist for a day or two, you are certain to love our new location.
  • Rooms are available at the special group rate of $79.99/night, only $10 more than in Northbrook. UFGT remains one of the cheapest tournament events you can attend.
  • Parking will be completely free for any guest staying overnight for UFGT9, and will be discounted to $10/day for everyone else attending.
  • The Crowne will offer a cash concession booth where you can get reasonably priced food and drink. No outside food or drink is allowed, but there are plenty of nearby places to eat just a short walk away.
[SIZE=16px]If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments or tweet @KeitsSRK on twitter. Or, visit our thread on SRK.[/SIZE]

    More than twice as much space? Awesome. The only thing about UFGT8 that wasn't perfect was the pool play areas that were a bit tight.
    Blah Blah Blah I am an insightful person. Here is my post.

    Yeah, that space was great for UFGT7, but UFGT8 grew a LOT (double attendance), so I knew that would be our last year in that space.

    This new location is perfect.

    The area right behind this hotel has been seriously renovated in the last year+. They've built several bar & grill's (with SKYDECKS!!!) including Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar & Grill", Park's Brewery (which has a crazy microbrew selection), Adobe Gila's (Where GLB's birthday 15th birthday party was held a few weeks ago), Hofbrauhaus [SIZE=14px](A German inspired (duh!) bar which should be up and running by next year), Five Roses Pub, King's Bowling alley and there's even the only Muvico in IL right there as well! [/SIZE]

    I know me, Geronimo, GLB and a few people here can personally say this location is "prime-time" so bring your drinking faces and look forward to one hell of a weekend cause that place is only going to get better as the date draws near.

    Adam, well played my friend.

    Yo ULLLLLLLLL.

    I have been to countless tournaments around the country (and across the border), and the UFGT is quite easily one of the most enjoyable tournaments I've ever attended. Registration, brackets, and scheduling are handled with extreme efficiency. The end result is less waiting and wondering, and more games and events.

    I'm definitely planning to make it to this myself, and will try to get the rest of Team Replay'd out for UFGT9 as well.

    Please let me know if you need stick mods or repairs!

    Hot damn! Anime Central two weeks before UFGT9. Such a tough decision. Which one should I go to- nah! Just kidding! I'm going to spend all my money at UFGT9. I had such a blast last time.

    Ah hem.....

    People know how much I love this tournament. I talk about it all year long, then feel like crying when it ends every year, then bug Keits about when the next one will be.

    In short, I'll be there :)

    This looks great from what I've seen! I've never actually been to a fighting game tournament before outside of super-local ones. I ran a SSF4 tourney at a local church a month ago, though, and outside of some time issues I think that one went pretty well. Some great players came then, though obviously not as good as the pros, and I can't wait to see how well everyone will do this time. Because this is going to be the first real tournament I'll be joining, I hope that I can do reasonably well, and even if I don't it's sure going to be as fun as heck to watch.

    I have a couple questions, though: like EVO, is this PS3-only? And if not, will adapters be provided or are those the player's responsibility? I play with a Hori Fighting Commander 3 Pro, so as long as I can use that in some shape or form, I'll be good! I'll settle on something else if absolutely necessary, though.

    I can't comment for sure on console use until the game list is announced, but we will do our best to please the community. The community tends to prefer Xbox for Capcom games and PS3 for Namco games.

    Super hype to see how much I have improved through just training, the scene in upper WI is dead without you here Keits. Also if there's a chance to volunteer I'd be more than happy to this year.

    UFGT8 was not only the best tournament, but quite possibly the best event I've ever been to. I'm anticipating this more than Christmas at this point.

    I'm guessing that either MK 9 or Injustice will be there (if not both). Either way, I'm still going to this. Keits, you really DO run an amazing event!

    Hell, if neither game is there, then I'll just polish off my scrubby AE skills. THAT'S how good UFGT is!

    I obviously know nothing about Injustice, but I don't see why we wouldn't run MK9 again.

    well my job is weird I can only ask off a maximum of 90 days in advance. So I have to wait until like late February to ask for these days off

    And then if it gets denied, I have to wait until 30 days from the date I want off to escalate it and push it farther. Then if they say no again theres nothing I can do

    I had this same problem last year and I was going to come

    UFGT9 will have new head-to-head games as well as last year's favorites in the Fun & Games area. The new location looks awesome with plenty of room and I'm very happy about the venue change. In fact, I've been working hard on a very BIG surprise... so big it would never have fit in the old location. Hmm... I wonder what it is. I have so much to tell you about this year's games and prizes... but I can't... yet! Look for announcements coming soon detailing what will be another great UFGT event.
