HeartNana, I Play Games & Nickel City present
Chicago 4 Ultimate in Midwest Arena
Saturday, August 18th
555 Waukegan Road
Northbrook, IL 60062
We’re doing this on short notice, but we don’t care. Presenting the sequel to last year’s successful Chicago Heart 3 and taking the place of Windy City Showdown Prime 5, it’s Chicago 4 Ultimate in Midwest Arena. What makes this different from the past few tournaments at Nickel City is that Nickel City will let us use their room for the entire day! So let’s do this big and do this right.
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition v. 2012 (XBox)

Persona 4 Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena (PS3)
King of Fighters XIII (PS3)

All tournaments are $10 to enter. There is a venue fee of $10, which is paid upon entering Nickel City.
The top 10% of people who enter will be paid. Here’s how the payout scale works, along with pot bonuses:

Call for Volunteers
We will need a lot of volunteers in order to make this tournament run. First, we need a bunch of people to bring systems and set-ups. We cannot run this tournament without systems and set-ups. Please bring systems if you can!!! We also need people to help out to help out with the duty of running brackets. Please post in the thread if you are willing to volunteer for any of these duties.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE VENUE FEE
There will be a $5 venue fee discount for people who bring systems and monitors for use at the tournament. HOWEVER, in order to get the discount, you need to be one of the first few people to volunteer your system for a certain game or games. Simply list in this forum if you have a system to bring, what it is, and what games you have for it. One of the tournament organizers will then take your (real) name down. Then you will be on the list of people to receive the discount at the tournament. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO RECEIVE THE DISCOUNT ON THE VENUE FEE!!! So if you want to make the price cheaper, this is the way to do it.
PS3 Dualshock Wireless controllers are permitted only with a connecting cord and with the understanding that they must remain off when they are not being used. If any irregularities or disputes occur, the players involved should attempt to resolve them among themselves. If they cannot, only then may it be referred to the tournament organizer.
The tournament will be streamed at twitch.tv/medina4life
