Due to a growing Chicago scene, and overall difficulty in finding & reading about local gatherings, matchmaking, tournament info, etc., this thread is being created to organize and easier locate matches with Chicago players. This is a trial thread to see how this goes, and has already been given the green light by Floe, so discussion of why this thread exists when there’s another Chicago thread already is not needed.
This is not a general discussion Chicago thread and spam WILL NOT BE TOLERATED in here. Please use the current Chicago thread located HERE for all general discussion not pertaining to gatherings, matchmaking, tournament info, etc.
Concerning local/arcade gatherings:
Please post as much contact information as possible including location, games you will be playing, time/date, console, and anything you would need people attending to bring. Phone or cell would be a plus but if you’d rather have that private, make a note that people can contact you via pm or such for more information.
A direct link to your tournament in the Tournaments & Events section would be great if you have already typeset your information there. Again, please provide location, games played, time/date, venue fee/tournament pricing, and anything needed to be brought by players.
**Concerning Online Matchmaking: **
If hosting an online match via PS3 or 360, please list your psn name/gamertag along with the game your are playing & console. Any other info you wish to provide (rounds/lobby size/etc) would be great, but not required. When you are done hosting your session, please edit your post with “SESSION CLOSED” so people know this is no longer a game in progress.
Special thanks to Nives (Jerry) for basically developing the idea that sparked this by incorporating gathering info into the first post of the general Chicago thread. This thread is meant to be an expansion of that so he will not have to keep constant updates there. The players posting here will be expected to do so.
Feel free to pm me any questions regarding this thread or anything else pertaining to this. Keep this thread ONLY for the use of matchmaking.
Thanks guys, let’s make this a successful part of the Chicago scene!
