UFGT10:X (Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament 10: X) is confirmed for May 23-25th, 2014. We’ll be at the same amazing venue as last year, the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare, with some slight improvements.
We’d love to know what you want to see next year, so tweet @TheKeits and let us know.
We’ll start updating the website, and new information is sure to follow. We’ll let you know when the hotel reservation link is ready so you can get the discounted group rate.
After the epicness that was UFGT9, we took a week off to relax and/or recover from whatever illnesses we caught during the tournament. But now we’re back and it’s time to clean up some loose ends. Yesterday, we gathered up all 134 completed brackets from the 14 events at UFGT9, brought them down to our local copy store, and scanned every single one of them. Today, we’re putting them online for you to see. Want to find out who won or how you did or who you beat or who beat you? All the results are in the links below so check them out.

For those unfamiliar, the Mystery Game Tournament is a special event in which every round of the tournament in every pool is actually played in a different game. This means that every time you have a new opponent, you’ll be playing something new.
The Mystery Game Tournament is, to us, a test of both your ability to quickly adapt and your arcane knowledge of random ass games. The spirit of the tournament is quickly broken, however, by the use of smartphones and laptops, and coaching from friends.
As such, this year, Mystery Game players will need to agree not to use their smartphones, tablets, or laptops for the duration of their pool. If you do use it, you will be given a loss in your upcoming match. If you are already in losers, you will be eliminated. While we can’t stop the crowd from shouting advice at the players, we do kindly ask that event attendees avoid direct coaching of the players. Just enjoy the show!
A few Injustice rule updates for you today concerning today’s patch, DLC characters, and stage selection.
At UFGT9, we will be using the 5/21/13 balance patch, and we will also allow Lobo in tournament play. Batgirl will not be allowed in tournament play, but will be part of the Injustice Character Auction event.
Stage selection is a difficult issue, and a lot of players and regions have differing opinions on how to handle it. For that reason, we’ve decided to “play it as is”, so to speak, and just use the rules presented in the game itself to govern this. This means that both players get to choose a stage and the game will 50/50 between them each time. I personally don’t view this as ideal, but it will help to avoid confusion from players and keep the tournament moving on schedule.
Injustice has a huge turnout at UFGT9, and we can’t wait to see how the tournament plays out.
