With a huge influx of new games on the horizon and OHN15 DIY applications now open, we brought in Virtua Fighter Australia’s own MadeMan to talk about how he resurrected the game he loves in 2 separate countries. No matter what scene you’re in, building a community for a game is easier than you think, and we talked all about just what it takes, how much effort goes into running a bracket and not being free WHILE BEING A TO?

As always, show notes/YouTube archive are available after the jump.
Canberra’s monthly 3D6 tournament returned last weekend, welcoming in the newly released Tekken 7 as well as Street Fighter V’s newest patch featuring Ed. In Street Fighter V, Magnum_Infinity was victorious once again running the gauntlet with a number of characters and in Tekken 7, Roojin was victorious with his Devil Jin/Gigas combo. We’ve got the top 3 for both games below.

With the trophy and medal games for OHN15 now officially announced, we’re giving community members one final opportunity to get their game on the event floor for either casual play or a DIY tournament. This year we’ve got a very intimate allocation of setups for smaller titles that are yet to be featured as part of the OHN lineup and we want to hear from communities who’d like to represent their game during OHN15.
You can put in an application for a game you’d like to provide for through this form up until July 7th. Successful applicants will be announced shortly after.
Australia’s FGC is constantly evolving and as such, OHN must evolve with it. At OHN15, we’ll be structuring tournaments a little differently to previous years to best serve all the arms of the community. We’re bringing back the true ‘DIY’ style of tournament absent from OHN14 while also keeping all the new bells and whistles like smash.gg scheduling for each player we had last year. Below is a graphic explaining the different tiers of tournaments at this year’s OHN:
So, what are the Medal and DIY games this year? We’ll have more to announce later this week!
Another successful YSB is in the books as we bid farewell to Street Fighter V 2.0 and finally welcome Tekken 7 and Injustice 2 to the YSB tournament lineup. Thank you as always to everyone who brought gear and helped run things on the day, it helped make the tournament another great day out. Here are the full results from the weekend:
OzHadou are incredibly pleased to announce that OzHadou Nationals 15 will be featured as part of the Tekken World Tour 2017 tour as a Challenger event. Placing top 8 in Tekken 7 at OHN15 (September 15-17) will net you ranking points that may help you earn a spot in the TWT final at the year’s end. Tekken’s 7 console release is a monumental event over 2 years in the making and we’re incredibly pleased to celebrate this launch with this added incentive for competitors. Will you be the one to take home the big prize?
You can find more about the Tekken World Tour on the official website and check out the official announcement trailer below.
Making its debut in the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre with over 900 entrants and a tonne of games, Battle Arena Melbourne 9 was a fantastic celebration of fighting games from all corners of the community. Congratulations to all winners both Australian and international and the CouchWarriors crew for putting on a fantastic event. We’ve embedded the final results after the jump because there were a lot of tournaments.
