JJROCKETS' List of the Best Weekly Tournaments in Chicago

Just a few months ago, the only Smash 4 tournaments in Chicago were E2C's monthly tournaments. Since then, the scene has ballooned in size, and weekly tournaments have been popping up all over the place, allowing players to get in tournament practice every week. As of the writing of this post, there are 9 weeklies in the Chicagoland area for Smash 4 that I am aware of, with at least one tournament every day of the week except for Wednesdays. In the past two weeks I have attended all of the weeklies that I could, and after having attended almost all of the available tournaments, I have put together my list of the top five weeklies. I ranked the tournaments based on the following criteria: quality of venue, strength of the competition, the number of set ups, how well the tournaments are ran, and of course my own opinion. Without further adieu, here is JJROCKETS' list of the best weekly tournaments in Chicago!
