Northbrook, IL 60062
13th Annual Midwest Fighting Game Championships sponsored by:
NubyTech, Capcom, UDON, MORE!
This year’s tournament is STILL mostly ARCADE oriented! We are not going to succumb to the console except where we have no choice! We are also going to make things a tad more interesting this year. We have condensed the tournaments down to what matters most, and what people are STILL playing. We have moved around the scheduling of some tournaments because last year CVS2 and MVC2 were lower in attendance due to them being on Sunday. We are still adding extra cash for games, and are now distributing it amongst the top 4 players in each tournament, so you have an extra incentive in showing up. We are giving away prizes to those that place 5th or higher in the core group of tournaments which will be displayed later in this thread. We even have a “mystery” tourney which is WINNER TAKE ALL and consists of random games that you will NOT KNOW ABOUT until the tournament begins! IN fact, you could end up playing 5 different games against opponents in this tournament! It is as random as it gets! Enough of this, though…let’s get to the schedule, extra cash, and prizes!

12PM-Street Fighter III: Third Strike FINALS (Top 8)
12pm-Dead or Alive 4 (on XBOX 360) (Tentative, if enough people show, and JINMASTER is there to run the tournament.)
Console, 2/3 matches, 1 cabinet, 3/5 grand finals only, $10 entry fee, 60/30/10 split + unknown extra prizes!
12PM-Tekken 5.0 (Arcade with PS2 controller ports) 2/3 matches, $10 entry fee + 60/30/10 split + unknown extra prizes! Extra money is probable for this tournament.
There is a $10 cover charge for your FIRST tournament. If you enter one tournament, it will be $10 + cost of that tournament. Let’s say you enter 3 tournaments: MVC2, CVS2, and 3s. Cost will be $40 for the three tournaments total! There is also a $2 charge to get into the arcade because all of the games RUN ON NICKELS. Let me repeat this once again for many of you who never show up to MWC, the GAMES RUN ON NICKELS. It does not cost 50 cents to play MVC2 or 3s to practice. Everything is cheap and affordable. There is a full service snack bar, lodging at Red Roof INN across the street, and the arcade has LOADS of fighting games and free play games!
There will be minor updates to this thread, but for the most part, this is the normal schedule…if you have any questions, please post.
