MLG Chicago 2005, also known as Midwest Mayhem, was the twelfth event of the 2005 MLG season, taking place at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, Illinois from December 16-18, 2005. Halo 2 was played in 4v4 and FFA tournaments, alongside Super Smash Bros. Melee.


Serving as the Central Conference Championship, MLG Chicago had the strongest turnout of an MLG event to date, with over 130 teams in attendance. With the Western and Eastern Conference Championships already in hand, Team 3D had only to take Chicago to go into the New York National Championships with a Conference Championship trifecta. Standing in their way were some fearsome revised lineups. TrademarkGamers was no more, and in its place stood a Str8 Rippin lineup of Fonzi, Foulacy, Tsquared and the new addition to the lineup, Tupac. iGameSpot was back, this time with a lineup of ShockWav3, Gandhi, Karma and StrongSide. The LeGendZ lineup of Defy, Vash, Cpt Anarchy and Toxin elected to stick together and try to build on their 3rd place finish in Atlanta. Despite these three strong lineups, it was the Xit Woundz squad of KillerN, Bonfire, Itwasluck and Samurai650 that would end up making it to the finals to face Team 3D, defeating Str8 Rippin (twice) and LeGendZ in the process. Showing no mercy on the dark horse, 3D plowed through Xit Woundz, defeating them 6-0 to take the tournament, having dropped only one game in the process.
