The Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament series will be holding its 10th event in 2014, and looking back on our history, we’re feeling proud and nostalgic at our contributions to the fighting game community. UFGT is the originator of multiple innovations at fighting game majors, including punch-clock proficient brackets, stream-supported mystery game tournaments, video-recorded panels, uniquely amazing trophies, inclusive auction tournaments, free door prizes, and the long-standing entertainment of Papa Keits’ carnival games. We’ve tried our best to grow the tournament alongside the Midwest fighting game scene, becoming a national attraction worthy of the finest players and spectators. Yet, as with all things, we also feel we’ve reached the zenith of what UFGT represents, and as a result, the climatic “X” will be our final event under the UFGT brand.
With this in mind, we’re going to try and put on the absolute best event we can, with returning excitements and improvements to our tournament festivities. If you have fond memories of UFGT, or a particular carnival game or a mystery tournament moment you can’t forget, please share them with us – we’re looking to give the people what they want. We hope you’ll enjoy UFGT one last time with us and make the finale one for the history books.
Let’s go out with a bang!

After some long thought and nice talks with passionate local players, We’ve decided to add Soul Calibur V and Street Fighter X Tekken to the UFGT10 schedule. While we can’t promise any stream time to these titles at this time, we did find some room on the (theoretical) schedule for them and we hope to see some great matches at the venue.
In addition to the usual, normal Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 tournament at UFGT10, you’ll also have the option to enter a second UMvC3 tournament with a special rule set. We are calling it “UMvCX”. You can enter both or either of these UMvC3 events… the choice is yours!
So, why the “X”? What are these special rules? (To be clear, this is still UMvC3. It is not a modified or modded game, it just our name for this rule set.)

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.
