Yes that's right, an SNK Major is coming to the MidWest! I am teaming up with Webster and Dark Kakashi to bring the Raging Storm to the MidWest.
Now before I get into the specifics, word from a bird is that the MidWest and East Coast thinks the West Coast is horrible at KOFXII. Don't make me laugh. Come prove your worth and back up your smack talk by taking out the REAL PRIDE OF TEXAS at this tournament. If you can't beat me (and I think me and Mr. KOF are pretty even) don't even think you'll beat Reynald!!!
That's right I'm calling you guys out. I hear what you say behind my back, I hear how you think a certain player if he played KOFXII for two days would beat me, so I say BRING IT, step up your game, prove your worth and back up your talk!!!!
HYPE??? I think so!!

Now to the essential Venue Information etc:
Venue Information from Webster:
"I AM THE PROJECT COORDINATOR/CUSTOMER SERVICE REP. OF THIS CAFE. A HIRED EMPLOYEE. I REPRESENT THIS CAFE.
Name: J. Jireh's Coffe House (interesting name IMO )
Address: 1704 7th Street Winthrop Harbor, IL 60096
Other info: Okay so this place is like the reverse Screenz (where we ran the CoB series). And TRUST ME, that's a good thing! The upstairs of the venue is spacious - filled with lighting, windows, a promising mic stero system (and oh yes I tested it hehe), comfortable charis, and a great deal of walking space (depending how many people come to this lol). And the downstairs in a lil smaller but EXTREMELY cozy and comfortable (kinda has that "at home" feeling. That is where our smaller tournaments will be ran). To the east of the building/venue there is a parking lot dedicated for us. It should be able to hold 20 vehicles no problem. But if we need extra parking space, there is an aditional parking lot across the street that belongs to the venue. The venue is clean as HELL. Oh man it's so nice!!! And being that it is a cafe, many many mnay goodies will be available for sale. Sandwhiches, sodas, pizzas, chips, muffins, bagles, coffee, cappuccino, ice cream, shakes/malts and etc. all for your convenience to purchase at affordable prices (I mean this is WI afterall lmfao). Finally, there are two exceptional hotels about 5 minutes away (I'm sure rooms there are no more than $60 a night. I will post more info about the hotels asap). For folks 21+, there is a nice bar right next to the venue and a couple more in the area too. There's gas stations, pizza joints, a Subway , and other gift stores in the area too. This is a GREAT VENUE!!!
Venue Fee: $7 for Saturday or Sunday. $10 for Saturday and Sunday.
WE NEED PEOPLE TO BRING SET UPS!!!
* PLEASE NOTE: If you bring a full setup (t.v/system/game) THAT WE USE FOR A TOURNAMENT, you will only have to pay $2 for venue fee the day we use it (so if you come Sat. And Sun. you ONLY pay $4 for venue, if we use your setup for both days). Full setups brought come on a "first come first served basis". So get there early and register your setup to get that discount. Also, and this is important: PLEASE TRY TO DEDICATE YOUR SETUP UNTIL YOUR TOURNAMENT IS FINISHED.

So please visit those sites and support.
I want you all attending this tournament to have as much fun as possible (as long as it doesn't include tekken in any way shape or form lolz). So I want to provide the best show I can think of. Main Events at tournaments seems to gain some type of HYPE and reasoning to want to go to said tournament. So hopefully we can get some interesting Main Events going. Through out the weekend there will be 5 Main events (technically there will be 4 lol, but I wanted some spotlight too since I'll be sooo busy running tournaments. so "HAHA". Just know EVENT #5 will hopefully be the biggest one in at the tournament. Here's an example of how things will look:
Event 1.) "My better vs. Your better!!!" Devildigimon vs. J-Money: Random Fighting Game Gauntlet FT5 for $20
Event 2.) TBA
Event 3.) TBA
Event 4.) TBA
Event 5.) TBA
TBA = To Be Announced. Thus there isn't one yet. That's where you guys come in.
Wanna do a huge money match (like $50+. Hell I heard Marvel players played a MM for $1,000 @ SB4. I bet that got some HYPE)? Do it here.
You wanna shut someone up, who thinks they are good said fighting game...and claim to be a PRO PLAYER (actually challenge someone who is known to be good at said game, someone who wins tourneys and etc. but in your heart, you KNOW YOU CAN BEAT THEM)? Do it here.
Alright so I hope you guys get the idea. If you want to be included in the main event. First KNOW you are coming to this tournament (lol that would help yha know ). Then make the challenge in the thread. And HYPE THAT **** (via mad **** talk or whatever means to get the event going)!!! There's only 5 slots. We're doing 3 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. I will make the decision of what events get included in the main event slots. But if there is enough HYPE behind it, I'll definitely consider (as long as tekken isn't involved lol)."
