(847) 693 - 6909
$15 for all day
If you bring a TV, then the venue fee will be $10
If you bring a System + one of the tourney games featured, the venue fee will be $10*
If you bring a TV and a system + one of the tourney games featured, the venue fee will be $5
You can also bring a megaphone and get an additional $5 off the venue fee! So if you bring a TV, a system, and a working megaphone, you can get in for free!
PLEASE LABEL ALL ITEMS THAT ARE YOURS.
[LEFT]*Obviously, since only Soul Calibur 2 and GGAC are on PS2, only the first 4-5 people bringing a PS2 will get the $5 off. Similarly, only the first 3 people brining a gamecube plus a copy of Naruto GNT:4 will get $5 off. 360s and PS3s plus MvC3/SSFIV/BBCS2/AH3/Tekken6 will get $5 off no matter what, even if I have an excess of them. In addition, if you bring a system but use it for a game not featured in the tournament (like mortal kombat 9 for casuals), then you will NOT get the $5 off. Also, if you bring a TV and a system with one of the games, you will get the $10 off automatically.[/LEFT]
$10 - SSFIV AE, MvC3, AH3, BBCS2, GGAC,T6, Naruto GNT4

As far as side tourneys are concerned, I’ll allow them AFTER the main tournaments are finished. So if the person running SSFIV AE wants to run a team tournament, that’s fine as long as it’s near the end of the singles tournament. We only have the venue until midnight, meaning at 11:00, it’s time to stop and start to clean up. However, if everyone brings all their games and tries to throw side tourneys, there might not be enough time, space, or setups. We have 1 day to run 9 tournaments, and I want to give people plenty of time to play casuals as well.
Speaking of side tourneys:
[Aug 13, 2011] Chicago Heart 3 - MvC3, SSFIV, AH3, BBCS2, GGAC, T6, SC2, GNT4 (Chicagoland, IL) - MK9 side tourney
Depending on the game depends on the format, obviously.
2D games will be 2/3 rounds. 3D games will be 3/5 rounds.
Games will be 2/3 matches, and losers/winners/grand finals will be 3/5 matches. It is up to the tournament organizer if they want to change this, however. In some cases, losers finals and winners finals may remain 2/3, and grand finals may change to 4/7, for example. The most important thing is to let both players know how many matches they must win to win the set. If it’s not been decided beforehand, then it’s 2/3 except for winners/losers/grand finals, in which it’s 3/5.
Depending on the game also depends on the rules, but for the most part, these games will follow Evo rules. No unlimited characters in BB, etc. If there are any questions about specific game rules, please ask.
Just like at Jan 2010 Frosty Faustings, there will be another raffle. Many items will be given away for free! It requires you to write your name down on a sheet of paper, and then toss it in a basket or bag or something! Many people enjoyed the items they recieved at the last raffle, and because of the positive reaction, I am looking forward to doing it again, FREE OF CHARGE! you just have to have paid the venue fee!
I know this is 2 weeks after Evo, but I think that it would be a waste if people practiced for Evo and then there weren’t any events after that! Let’s get a big turnout everyone! If you have any questions, feel free to ask here!
(This is actually important)
-No loitering in the hallways. This is the main rule. We’re gonna have a big venue room, and the hotel staff is nice enough to toss in a smaller ballroom with 20 seats or so in it for people to hang out in. They say that there will also be an outdoor patio nearby with chairs and tables that seats 50 people or so. So even if you’re not in the main ballroom, there’s a couple places you can hang out, as long as it’s NOT the hallways. This is the main important thing, and the staff WILL get on our case about it. Worst case scenario is that if people keep loitering, they’re going to shut the event down, so please let’s avoid this from happening and use the space provided!
-Don’t bring your own food. There’s vending machines, a hotel gift shop, and a hotel restaurant. You can bring food from any of those three places into the ballroom, but aside from that, you can’t bring your own food. It’s hotel policy, and I apologize for that, but again, hotel rules. I would suggest eating breakfast beforehand or something. The staff will come in and check every once in a while, so if they see you eating, you’re going to have to give them your food to throw away or go outside to eat. You can also eat in your own hotel room, obviously.
