HeartNana, I Play Games & Nickel City present
Chicago 4 Ultimate in Midwest Arena
Saturday, August 18th

Nickel City
555 Waukegan Road
Northbrook, IL 60062
847-559-8727
www.nickelcitygames.com

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.

Preliminary Games List
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition v. 2012 (XBox)
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (XBox)
Persona 4 Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena (PS3)
King of Fighters XIII (PS3)
Soul Calibur V (PS3)
Mortal Kombat 9 (PS3)
Skullgirls (PS3)
Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown (PS3)

More games may be added with enough interest

All tournaments are $10 to enter. There is a venue fee of $10, which is paid upon entering Nickel City.

Payout
The top 10% of people who enter will be paid. Here's how the payout scale works, along with pot bonuses:

    8-24 entrants - 1st place: 65% of pot, 2nd place: 25%, 3rd place: 10%
    25-40 entrants - 1st: 65% of remaining pot*, 2nd: 25%, 3rd: 10%, 4th: Entry fee + $5 - $25 pot bonus
    41-64 entrants - 1st: 65% of remaining pot*, 2nd: 25%, 3rd: 10%, 4th: Entry fee + $10, 5th/6th: Entry fee + $5 - $75 pot bonus
    65-80 entrants - 1st: 65% of remaining pot*, 2nd: 25%, 3rd: 10%, 4th: Entry fee + $15, 5th/6th: Entry fee + $10, 7th/8th: Entry fee + $5 - $150 pot bonus
    81-128 entrants - 1st: 65% of remaining pot*, 2nd: 25%, 3rd: 10%, 4th: Entry fee + $20, 5th/6th: Entry fee + $15, 7th/8th: Entry fee + $10, 9th-12th: Entry fee + $5 - $225 pot bonus

And so on.

* "Remaining pot" means the pot after all places 4th and lower have been paid out.

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.

General Rules
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.

Stream
Stream will be provided at twitch.tv/medina4life

Pizza
For people attending the tournament, Nickel City is offering a special deal: A one-topping slice of pizza and a small fountain drink for just $3!
