[Syd] OHN14 – Accommodation Tips and Tekken 7 Update

ohn14_t7

We have some important news to share regarding the Tekken 7 tournament at the OzHadou Nationals 14 and some tips regarding accommodation for people looking to make the most of their time during the OHN14 weekend.

Tekken 7 – Official Tournament

Tekken is an OHN staple, forming a major part of the official tournament line-up since the debut of Tekken 5 at OHN4 in 2005. This year Bandai Namco Australia is helping us to keep this tradition going by bringing Tekken 7 to OHN14 ahead of the game’s console release in early 2017.

At one point we had hoped to use the Fated Retribution update for OHN14, however we’ve received word that Bandai Namco will be providing us with “vanilla” Tekken 7. This will be the one and only OHN title for arcade Tekken 7 and we’re eagerly looking forward to see who will take the Australian Tekken crown at OHN14.

Accommodation Tips

With early bird discounts for OHN14 ending on Monday August 1st and 165 people already registered, over 60 of which are travelling from interstate or overseas, many people will be working on their accommodation plans for this year’s OzHadou Nationals.

As mentioned on the OHN14 website, our host venue The Menzies Sydney Hotel is offering discounts for OHN attendees that call direct to book accommodation*. If The Menzies is outside your budget, consider sharing a room or look around the CBD for one of many nearby alternatives. Since The Menzies is opposite Wynyard station, accommodation near a CBD train station is an excellent alternative.

While the ballroom at the Menzies is much larger than past OHN venues, it’s much smaller than the BAM8 venue. We’re expecting up to 500 people at OHN14 and this means space will be scarce during the many pools running on Saturday – both official and DIY. If required we will be limiting casual play and spectator space during Saturday pools, so people will need to be elsewhere until their pool starts. That could mean exploring the surrounding area, going out for some food or heading back to your room for casuals or some sleep.

With this in mind plan ahead and book accommodation that will keep your options open should we be forced to limit access to the venue during pools on Saturday.

*See the OHN14 website for details on how to access the discount offer from The Menzies Sydney Hotel.

OHN 14 DIY line-up announcement

I am bad

DIY tournaments have a long standing history at OHN and this year is no different. We are pleased to announce a cast of new and returning titles to the OHN14 lineup. Thank you to all who submitted applications, the unfortunate reality as always is we cant’t accept all games and it was a long and arduous process to narrow down this line-up to make sure every community gets represented. That being said, we are pleased to announce the DIY line-up for OHN 14:

  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo (Arcade)
  • Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike (Xbox 360)
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (Xbox 360)
  • The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match (Xbox 360)
  • The King of Fighters 98: Unlimited Match Final Edition (PC)
  • The King of Fighters XIV (casuals only, PS4)
  • Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- (PS4)
  • Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (PS3)
  • Pokken Tournament (Wii U)
  • Super Smash Bros. 64
  • Project M

Don’t forget to register for OHN14 here! DIY tournament registration will go live later this week.

OzHadou officially ends support for SFV Legacy Controllers on PS4

oh_news

As of February 29th 2016, the Legacy Controllers option in Street Fighter V on Playstation 4 will no longer be supported in tournaments sanctioned by OzHadou. Given the time consuming nature of the setup process, combined with the high player count at recent events, this is a necessary step we are taking to make sure tournaments finish in a timely manner. Additionally, the legacy support brought a host of new issues for tournament staff including syncing issues with the DualShock4, which proved to be a huge issue with tournament setups.

The market for next generation sticks is ever-growing and for those that don’t want to make the jump, Brook Converters are also an option. If you’re a little lost as to what you’re options are, we’ll have an article on the site over the next couple of days rounding up some of the more popular options.

DualShock4 pads will still be permitted in OzHadou tournaments run on PS4, however players must sync the pad using a reliable recharge cable and then desync and delete the controller at the end of every tournament match. Anyone found interrupting tournament matches with a DualShock4 pad will face penalties including tournament disqualification, tournament bans and event bans.

OHN13 – Retrospectives

ohn13_banner

Another OzHadou Nationals is behind us. Many games were played, champions were crowned and the Australian fighting game community brought the hype. Let’s look back at OHN13 from a few different angles.

Albert “Pepito” Hong captured all the magic from the OHN debut of Mortal Kombat X in his video “OHN13 – MKX Moments”.

As soon as the crew from the I Don’t Even Podcast recovered from 3 days of OHN-madness they jumped into their debut/pilot episode to discuss how things went down.

Finally for everyone interested in match videos, the OHN13 streaming team – Goodpart, Barra and kyokugen – has been diligently uploading direct feed match footage to the OzHadou Youtube channel. This process is on-going so be sure to check back later if the games you’re looking for aren’t already available.
