I Don’t Even (Listen to This) Podcast E28 – Build it and they will come (unless it’s Chun’s face)

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?

Recorded June 16th, 2017 live @ Twitch.tv/Gamrah

OHN 15 DIY Applications are now open

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.

Here are the different tiers of tournaments at OHN15

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!
