Fighting Game Meetups

There are some big changes coming to Mix-Up Mondays at Ignite Gaming Lounge!

For starters, we’re dropping the name ‘Mix-up Mondays’ to adopt Fighting Game Community Meetups or FGC Meetups for short.

We’re rebranding for several reasons:
  1. The fighting game scene is constantly evolving by adding new games and dropping old ones. We want to include EVERY fighting game into our community now, and later and we feel like Mix-up Mondays did not get that across clearly.
  2. We want to prepare the community for our second home in Skokie. We see the FGC Meetups expanding to multiple days across multiple venues and sticking to a name that had the word ‘Mondays’ in it doesn’t quite work with that vision in mind.
  3. Literally, no one called it Mix-up Mondays when they purchased their venue fees.

Next up, we’re going to be providing more systems and games! That means SFV, Tekken 7, Guilty Gear, Blazblue, and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will have systems ready for you every Monday. We’ll keep these systems up-to-date with new games and DLC regularly so you don’t have to lug your setups out anymore.

You’re still encouraged to bring setups for consoles/games that Ignite isn’t providing (space will be limited), but we will be effectively discontinuing the system discount on Monday, September 25th, 2017. All venue fees will now be a flat $10.

” Oww man, that’s some bullsh-”

Worry not CFGC! Although we are increasing our price at the door, we’re creating new ways for you to continue to save some dough. Introducing our new monthly subscriptions – get access to FGC Meetups for just $20 a month.

That’s just $5 bucks a week, without having to bring a setup! The subscription is simple. Sign up in 5 minutes, you’ll be automatically billed every 30 days, and you can cancel at any time. Once subscribed, check-in at the service desk every Monday and you’re good to go.

You can also get more info and register on-site.

And the last couple of changes to the FGC Meetups – our check-in process will now include getting a wristband to verify your venue fee purchase or valid subscription. So please make sure to touch in at the service desk as soon as you arrive. We will also be providing extra monitors in the private room and maximizing the space to allow BYO monitors and full setups. On top of these changes we’ll be having more events for more games to make sure that we include everyone that is coming out and supporting (That can even mean you Injustice players). We’ve been so happy to see the FGC at Ignite grow and prosper, and I hope that with these changes we’ll see even more of that.
To kick-off the new changes we’re going to be doing a launch event on Monday, September 25th featuring:
  • Tournaments for Street Fighter V, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and Tekken 7
  • Free grub

Join us for a launch event with tournaments and free grub on Monday, September 25th!
