  1. Best deals I found on nearby hotels. Most of these are in the same area off Cumberland about a mile from O'Hare and 4-7 miles from the tourney. I know of a cheaper motel 6's around 60 to 80 that would be a 30 min drive around Lombard, Naperville area.
  2. On Sunday dmen tap is having a smash tourney the day after the qualifier. Not a bad weekend if your into both games.
  3. Tom. Just to clarify. You can't do Sf vs bug or bug or hou or any combination with those 4 teams. However sf vs rai or hou vs phi or bug KC or nyg vs Chicago and so on all work Same rules with NE, IND, Sea. You cannot match them together. But like NE vs GB, sea vs cle and Ind vs no would be ok. Nos I will do an area hotel search and post some of the results. I got room for a couple guys to overnight at my apartment as well.
  4. Flo. In the best of 3 each game is a new matchup. Joey no matter the people playing the same matchup rules I posted at the start apply. Thoughtout the entire tournament you can only play in a match up one time. Also the ban on matching the 4 top teams together and the bottom 3 teams together applies. Thanks for your questions guys. The reason I posted the 8 man format was just in case of an emergency. I'm confident we will get 12 to 16 players. But at the same time I want to reassure those that have signed up that this tournament will happen no matter what.
  5. I need one more official sign up to make this tourney set in stone. I've decided on an eight man format that would work if needed. 8*150 is 1200 in prizes. 1st 900 2nd 300 After group play of 8 games. 3 rounds best of 5. That would make group play about 3-4 hrs. Each round 1.5 and ideally 9 to 10 hours max. Hoping not to use this format but I want a contingency established so people paying in no the tournament is set in stone.
  6. With 8 people this is officially happen on the 18th. If we have less than 10 we might have everyone play a few extra games to make sure each person gets 11 total games in the qualifier.
  7. I'm also making it an option to use the 2nd place prize as an entry to the main event. I will pay up to 75 if you use this money to buy a spot for the main event. For example 10 people is 50, plus 25 from you and I pay 75. 15 people is 75 and I pay 75. 20 people is 100 and I pay 50. If you're interested in the qualifier please sign up soon. I do need at least 9 people besides myself to make it work.
  8. Ok 5 dollars for a chance at a free entry or modest cash prize. Please sign up for qualifier by contacting me or posting on this post.

  10. Need 5 more to make it official. TecmoPsycho thanks for the early sign up bro.
  11. Awesome to hear guys. I'm now taking official sign ups. Sept 22nd is locked in stone. So is our location up at dmen tap. Right now those that have entered are as follows. Flo, RSG Tom, DPS, Joseph Moore, Louis B, myself. I need 6 more to make it official. All sign ups are refundable. As long as I have 12 people paid in by the weekend before the event date we are doing it. Details about the satellite in August will be coming soon. Use the PayPal link in the top post to sign up and send your entry fee.
  12. After the success of the hardcore tourney this event will be at dmen tap as well. Based on a suggestion by Tom I've edited the prize structure. Official sign ups will start in two weeks. I need at least 12 sign ups to hold the event. Also there will be a satellite event for a free entry. Date to be determined in august.
  13. I subscribe to the the Son Goku mentality of no cheap victories. So I'm going to toss out you guys a proverbial sensu bean and give some observations I've made in my hardcore prep. 1. Certain plays are highly susceptible to the nose dive bomb. Pro-form and I form up the middle plays. 2. A 6 ms qb is a dead duck. A 13 ms qb is 50/50 on escaping a lurch. 25 ms and above should be close to unlurchable. 3. The best DL for lurching are GB, Pitt, TB. The worst two are KC and chi. 4. Lurching take a bit of skill. It's not automatic. My best advice is to tap b right at the snap if you have a top level NT. 5. The run and shoot runs really help to offset the lurch game. To be honest there are few lurches in most of our practice. It just leaves you too wide open. Plus it's better saved as a surprise to lurch. 6. Field position and defense will mean more. Starting a drive on the 5 yard line in has a much higher chance of a safety. 7. Wr at RB will be big in this format. Jerry Rice, Rison and Hill can salt away wins in the 4th quarter as RB. Also I'm pretty sure there are unlimited subs. So that means if your in the red zone you might rotate a Jerry Rice to RB. 8. The best games are going to be in tier 2 and tier 3. I think tier 2 offers the most even matchups. Avoid tier 5. Everyone should play at least one tier one hou vs sf for the fun it offers. 9. The food at dmen tap is amazing. Phil runs a great food truck and has an exciting menu. The wings are amazing with a unique hot sauce. I also highly recommend the cheese curds and the donner bowl. 10. For those who don't get the DBZ reference some find me the clip of Goku giving Cell a sensu bean before fighting his son in a death match.
