Events2Compete is bringing you our new premier Chicago monthly tournament series, Midwest Mayhem, at Poplar Creek Bowl, the same venue we've been hosting the E2C monthlies and Dismantle 2 on Saturday, March 19th. We are happy to announce that Mr. R, Hyuga, ChuDat, Sethlon, and Max Ketchum are confirmed. We have other top players that are close to confirming and more announcements could be made in the near future. We will once again be renting out the upstairs room and using the downstairs for friendlies or any extra setups pool setups.

For this tournament, we have invested a lot of our resources to make sure that we'll run the best tournament we have ever hosted. We have fully upgraded our stream equipment, invested in more monitors and setups, purchased pool station dividers, and we will have 3 projector screens to display our Smash 4 stream, Melee/PM stream, and one screen dedicated to displaying brackets and pools. We are working on a new revolutionary bracket program that will be unveiled at this tournament to better optimize and organize the tournament overall while helping out the TO's and the players to make the tournament run as smoothly as possible. The event will be live streamed on our partnered Twitch channeltwitch.tv/events2compete for Smash 4. Melee stream will be announced soon.
