Presenting the inaugural
Midwest Midweek Midtournament
July 20th, 2011
Galloping Ghost Arcade
9415 Ogden Avenue
Brookfield, IL 60513
This is the first of hopefully many Chicagoland Wednesday night battles to be held at Galloping Ghost Arcade, this one scheduled for a week and a half prior to Evo.
The Details (Newly updated as of July 14th)
The Tournaments: Three will be held, in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Mortal Kombat 9.
The Systems: SSF4:AE and MvC3 will be held on [S]XBox 360[/S] both systems, MK9 on PS3. We will attempt to play most of the matches on XBox, but if you only have a PS3 stick/pad, an exception should be able to be made for you. If you have to play a match on a system that you do not have a controller for, there will be enough other people there who will let you borrow one for that system. There will NOT be separate PS3 and Xbox pools.
The Setups: If you have a system, game disc, monitor, or cables and you can bring them to the event, please do. We want to make sure we have enough setups, and there should be some room for casuals as well.
The Price: Entry is $5 per tournament plus a $5 venue fee.
The Payout: All tournaments will be 70/20/10 for top 3 finishers, plus a bonus $5 (for 16-31 entrants) or $10 (for 32 or more entrants) each to all top 4 finishers.
The Rules: All tournaments are standard Evo rules (double-elimination, best 2 out of 3 format, with winner’s, loser’s, and grand finals best 3 out of 5, only loser may change characters, etc.).
Take Note: For Mortal Kombat 9, [S]Skarlett, Kenshi, and Rain will be allowed[/S]. Kratos and all DLC costumes and all DLC characters are banned.
The Late-comers: If you want to enter but cannot make it exactly on time, please notify me (Max) ahead of time so you can be entered into the bracket.
The Volunteers: I will need help collecting money and running some of the brackets, so if you’re interested in volunteering, please contact me (still Max). As an added incentive for volunteering, I will bring something tasty.
The Casuals: There should be ample time for casuals both before and after the official tournament
The Bring-your-own-controller: Bring your own controller.
