Without further delay, I am proud to preset Frosty Faustings III.  Chicago's newest major tournament series.  If you care at all about support the Guilty Gear scene and showing the world that GG is far from dead, come support this event.  There will also be SSFIV and more.

I AM TAKING PRE REGISTRATION IN THIS THREAD.  IF YOU PLAN ON COMING, PLEASE POST YOUR TOURNAMENT NAME AND THE GAMES YOU WISH TO ENTER.  I WILL COMPILE A LIST AND KEEP IT UPDATED.

Northbrook, IL 60062

Closest Airport: Ohare Airport (ORD)

Signups begin at 2:00 pm.  All tournaments start at 3:00 pm (DONT BE LATE!)  We can stay as late as 3 am, so there wont be a problem finishing everything.

Though Nickel City is an arcade, all games will be played on console 

Fees:  There will be a $10 venue fee. 

Please help out by bringing any TVs or consoles that would help things run smoother and allow for more casuals and tournaments to run faster.  Anyone who brings a setup that we use in the tournaments will get 5 dollars off the Venue fee.

The characters that will be playable in the tournament are any characters not in the row of bosses on the bottom. So that includes EX Kensou, EX Takuma, and EX Robert as well as the Orochi versions of the New Faces Team as being playable in the tournament.
In other words if the characters are available in the arcade version then they may be selectable in the tournament.
Winner must keep characters, loser my switch

Please help out by bringing any TVs or consoles that would help things run smoother and allow for more casuals and tournaments to run faster.

About me and Frosty Faustings:  I used to live in Chicago and am one of the most well known Guilty Gear players from the US.  I have been living in Japan for almost 3 and a half years.  Every year, I visit Chicago and run Frosty Faustings to help out the scene and get some games in with everyone.  Please come support this event!
