    The Illinois Thread: We Play Everything!

    On may 7th we're doing a larger tournament at Evanston games (formally known as Elysium) all the info for it is here https://smash.gg/tournament/the-marquee-matchup and you can even pre-reg. Also every sunday is still weekly casuals at Evanston games

    Since the last post we've switched days at Elysium to Sunday (doors open at 11AM, tournaments start at 4 (first GG, then BB afterwards), the shop closes at 11PM). Also ShinSin and I have started a chicago AFGC twitter you can follow to stay posted on events and results from locals https://twitter.com/ChicagoAFGC

    Turnout at Elysium has picked up, so now it's going to be a weekly meetup. Next one will be on the 12th. If you bring a setup (monitor+console) that we end up using for tournament venue is waved, otherwise $5. Tournaments are $5 entry. Also we've been running BB tournaments at ignite and the plan is to keep doing that.

    We haven't been getting very good turnout at Elysium, so if the next meetup doesn't get very good turnout we probably wont have any more. It wont be until January because of the holiday season. If anyone has opinions on weather we should do it on the 5th or hold off till the 12th lmk, the date still isn't set in stone

    Starting on the first of december Elysium games in evanston is going to be hosting anime stuff every other thursday. Venue is $5 but it's waved if you bring a full setup (including monitor), stuff officially starts at 7, tournaments would likely start ~8. From the looks of who's said they're gonna come we'll probably do a blazbue tournament and if people come for xrd or any other game I'm happy to run stuff for those games too. Tournament will be singles $5 entry casual play is, of course, fine. Next monday I'll be running another BB bracket at ignite, most likely a free 2v2, but if turnout is smaller we'll do a 1v1. I want to start the bracket a little earlier (~8) so that there's time to run something else (I was thinking a chaos code bracket)

    There's a place in Evanston (Elysium games, 1610 Maple Ave.) that is down to host casuals (would be on thursdays), but they don't have monitors (they have 2 HD TVs that we could use, but nothing else). They said they'll wave venue fee for anyone who brings a full setup though. If turnout's good they'll look into investing into some monitors, it's just that as of right now they're mainly a tabletop/card game venue (although they also hold melee tournaments). So if you could bring a monitor there post here so we'll know if we have enough set-ups to be able to get something going

    There's no plans for anime stuff as far as I know, but I'm not involved with ignite, so if they have anything planed I wouldn't know

    Yeah, there's usually a couple of bb setups at ignite Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    GGA is having some construction done (Eddie's post about it http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sou01l) so after this week weeklies and monthlies will be on a hiatus. Tomorrow is still on, but after that keep your ear to the ground. For a reminder on the other stuff in chicago: Ignite hosts weeklies every monday that are mainly SF5, but all games are welcome. Also they have a monthly coming up for SF5 and Xrd (unsure if non-SF/xrd casuals are allowed at the monthly) this saturday (details for the monthly here:https://smash.gg/tournament/mix-up-monthly-2-1/details). For Xrd a lot of the chicago players regularly set-up lobbies and/or host casuals at their place, It's not exactly super orginized and you'll need to contact various folks directly, but if you follow shinsin on twitter (https://twitter.com/cj_shinsin) he'll probably tweet out/RT that stuff. There is also a chicago anime discord server where you're likely to hear about players organizing a trip to R1 or anything like that. If you want an invite PM/DM me on some website somewhere. Also since we've lost the weekly uni physical venue I might try and organize/stream weekly uni netplay lobbies or something, I'll probably post about that on twitter if it develops

    Yeah more or less, when there's xrd tournaments there's less time/set-ups for uni, but there's always uni players around. BBCPE is usually played too. We were off today cause of evo but next week is still on.

    There's a parking lot at GGA, it's pretty small but if it fills up there's also street parking behind the building (it's a residential street, but as long as you don't block someone's driveway you're fine)

((woops turns out I wrote this post and then forgot to hit reply))
