[OzH] Change of Hands and OHN Update

As times moves on, community interests shift and the industry evolves, responsibilities and priorities change. Thus we are sadly announcing a number of departures from the OzHadou team.

Henry ‘Genxa’ Sham
A longstanding veteran of the scene, having been part of the community since its inception and a consistently strong player amongst almost all Street Fighter games, he has left his mark on the community as more than just a player. Acting as the Brand Manager for OzHadou, and the de facto head of OzHadou in recent years, he has been a key driving force behind OzHadou Nationals (OHN), York Street Battles (YSB) and many of the events organised by OzHadou.

Phrances ‘PxC’ Xharmagne C
The hidden pillar of OzHadou. As effectively the general manager of OzHadou, Xharmagne has been critical to the success of OzHadou. Spearheading many tasks, ranging from single-handedly organising the few recent OHNs to laying the framework for the continued success of OzHadou and the many thankless auxiliary duties.

Andrew ‘Ziggy’ Ziogas
Founder of OzHadou and advisor to the current team. While Ziggy has long since hung up his organisational duties, he has remained a core member of the team throughout its lifetime.. Serving as a mentor he kept OzHadou true to its roots with a focus on the community.

From the OzHadou team, we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours. Thankful for the foundations they have laid for us, we’ll uphold and exceed the standards of commitment and passion they have displayed.

As part of this transition, we regret to announce that OHN for 2018 is cancelled. Due to a number of difficult circumstances involving conflicting schedules and venue issues, it is unviable to proceed with our plan for OHN this year. While this was not an easy decision to make after much consideration from everyone involved, the OzHadou team is working feverishly for 2019 to be bigger and better with some exciting news to come.

~From the new OzHadou team
Dennis ‘Firery’ Manichanh – President
David ‘Kyokugen’ Lee – Treasurer
Aaron ‘Gilbagz’ Hong – Secretary
Luke ‘Made Man’ Habib – Community Manager
Youssef ‘FaYd’ Faddoul – Community Manager (Returning Sep 2018)

Regional qualifiers will be run and the highest placing eligible player will be flown to Sydney to play at the ICC on the 26th of July.

So here’s the details of our qualifiers, courtesy of Battle Kat Bunker for graciously hosting the venue.

Game – Tekken 7

Date – 7th July 2018

Location – Battle Kat Bunker @ Suite 5 235 Pitt St, Merrylands, NSW

Tournament rules – Standard Tournament rules: BO3 with Top 3 as BO5. All matches will be played on random stages.

Player Eligibility – All players are required to residing within their qualifying state (NSW). While any player is eligible to enter the tournament, only the qualifying player must be an Australian citizen, over the age of 15 and must hold a valid passport for international travel. If the top placing player is not eligible, then the opportunity will fall onto the next eligible player.

[SYD] York Street Battles #61 – June 23rd

A little late, but just in time for Blazblue Cross Tag Battle’s 3 DLC packs, YSB comes again on the 23rd of June! Be sure to come and have a day full of casuals and tournaments with the newly released Street Fighter 30th Anniversary collection, Dragon Ball FighterZ fusions and newly patched Tekken 7!

Registration for YSB is performed via the Smash.GG portal (https://smash.gg/ysb61), where you can pay using a debit or credit card. Even if you are paying cash on the day, you can sign up online to make sure you’re in all your brackets ahead of time and then fix it up with the door staff upon arrival. Please make sure all tournament fees are fixed prior to the start of the tournament or you will be disqualified from the bracket.

Doors open for registration at 11am. Centralised registration on the day will cease at 1pm so if you arrive after that, please find one of the tournament organisers around and sign up via one of us. Spectators may attend for free, but if they end up wanting to play on any setup, they must pay the entry fee before doing so.

Tournament times for this month are as follows:

*note: Registration closes 10 minutes prior to tournament time, please make sure you’re early so you don’t miss out
1:00pm – Dragon Ball FighterZ, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle
2:00pm – Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, Mortal Kombat XL, Skullgirls 2nd Encore
3:00pm – Tekken 7 3-on-3 Teams, Street Fighter V, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st], Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
5:00pm – Guilty Gear Xrd REV2 , Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Injustice 2

Tournament participation is optional and tournaments will only be run if there are a sufficient number of entrants for each bracket on the day. Signups will open 30 minutes before each scheduled start time and close 10 minutes before the bracket is scheduled to start, look for a YSB staff member to register. The tournament fee for SFV, DBFZ and Tekken 7 is $5 with the entry distributed to the top 3 players. Tournament fees for other games are up to the organiser of each respective tournament and will be decided on the day

In addition to the listed tournaments, there will be plenty of casuals available for a variety of games on the day. If you’d like to co-ordinate casuals or a tournament for a particular game, drop a comment on the Facebook event or speak to a YSB staff member on the day and we’ll be more than happy to try and co-ordinate a setup. BYO set-ups are also strongly encouraged.

See you there!
