Check this thread for up-to-date local Matchmaking & Gathering Info:
The Chicago Matchmaking & Gathering Info Thread [READ FIRST POST BEFORE POSTING]
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION:
Everyone’s input is welcomed, because it adds culture and personality to our thread and this is encouraged. Though keep in mind that this is a Matchmaking thread for fighting games, and not an IM. So it would be greatly appreciated if people made an active effort to try and make informative posts, and take 1-on-1 conversation and spam to our irc chat at #srkchicago on the EFNet server. We all do enjoy active posting, but because this is a matchmaking thread, often times people looking for players, or looking to schedule matches get overwhelmed by the onslaught of regular posters, and we would like to make this environment more welcoming for them. Thank you for your help in making our scene nothing less than excellent.
Directions to getting on irc:
Once you download mIRC and install it, connect to the EFnet network. After connected enter:
There’s a lot more to mIRC than this, but this is all you should need.
Other instant messaging programs also have IRC capabilities like Trillian, xChat, etc. mIRC is the one I use.
*if you feel anything should/needs to be added/removed from the post ask
