[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)

[Syd] OHN14 Final Schedule and Rules Updates


Now that registration has closed and the brackets are almost ready, we have some important updates for everyone attending the OzHadou Nationals 14 this weekend. This includes information about the tournament schedule, check-in process, rules and other important matters.

Final Schedule

The final schedule for OHN14 has been announced. You can find full details courtesy of the official OHN14 website. For anyone that has made plans based on the draft schedule, it’s worth noting that there have been no significant changes besides a condensing of the run time for the Project M tournament.

Check-in for Competitors

All competitors must report to their pools on time at OHN14 or risk disqualification. We recommend you arrive 30 minutes prior to the commencement of your scheduled pool start time. Due to time constraints we must start all pools on time and we WILL disqualify players if necessary to ensure that happens.

Attendees may only compete once they have received their competitor pass from the check-in desk. To avoid being stuck in a queue before your pool begins, we recommend competitors collect their pass on Friday wherever possible. Failing that give yourself plenty of time (say an hour or more) to collect your pass prior to the start of any pools. We will have a limited check-in desk presence on site Saturday morning from 9am for people who have pools commencing at 10am.

All attendees must present their OHN14 confirmation email at the desk to receive their pass, so either print your receipt out beforehand or have it on your phone/tablet for us to inspect. Once we confirm your email against our records you will be able to enter the venue.

Do not lose your pass! Without it you will not be able to enter the venue or, in the case of competitors, play any games, including tournament matches.

Rules Update for Street Fighter V

We have an important update to the rules for Street Fighter V at OHN14: all top 8 matches will be best of 5 games, with all other matches being best of 3 games. This change brings OHN14 into line with other Capcom Pro Tour Asia tournaments that have recently taken place.

Remember that the tournament rules are available on the OHN14 website and all players are assumed to have read and agreed to comply with the rules prior to entering the tournament. Rules will NOT be open to debate with players and the Tournament Director reserves the right to change these rules if deemed necessary for the good of the tournament.

More Coming Soon!

Soon we will publish the final tournament brackets online for all tournament games at OHN14, including DIY tournaments. We will also provide a list of the stream channels that will be covering the event. Check this site and the OzHadou Facebook page for all the latest announcements regarding OHN14.
