OHN11 Qualifers @ Shadowlogic this Sunday!

OHNRHi guys, OHN11 is swiftly approaching and this Sunday we are having a Melbourne OHN qualifier at the Shadowlogic venue.

The best SSFIV: AE v. 2012 and UMVC3 placer will win full return flights to Sydney to compete at OHN this February. In addition, we will also be fighting for seeding points at OHN, so this should be a exciting event with a lot of good matches.

We haven’t had an local event in almost two months so I’m really excited to see everybody again and to see all the tech they’ve been working on over the holidays.

Details can be found here: and I hope to see you guys there!

Road to EVO 2013 – OzHadou Nationals 11

As mentioned earlier on, the OzHadou Nationals 11 (OHN 11) tournament has been accepted into the officially recognised line up of international tournaments leading into EVO. This means that competitors at OHN will be eligible for seeding points at the word’s largest fighting game tournament ‘EVO’ being held in Las Vegas on July 12th – 14th 2013.

This from earlier today:

“EVO 2013 promises to be the biggest event the tournament series has seen in its many years of operation, and with the constant international presence that increases with every iteration, the organizers have extended this year’s Road to EVO to include more seeding events outside the United States than ever before. From bustling hubs of the fighting game community like Singapore, Canada, and the United Kingdom to more obscure regions like Morocco, Bolivia, and Indonesia, a variety of global scenes will have their chance at earning seeds for EVO 2013 and therefore earning more advantageous spots in their respective brackets at the largest fighting game event of the year.”

More details on EVO are available here and the road to EVO announcement for OHN and others is available here.

For more information on the OHN tournament being held in Sydney next month, you can visit the official OHN page here. Forum discussion for OHN is available here.

Five Reasons Why You Should Come to OHN11

With the announcement of OHN11 two weeks ago, perhaps you’re mulling over the possibility of attending. Perhaps you’re on the fence, and need a little bit of a push over the line. Chances are if you’re on this site, and you’re reading this, you have at least a passing interest: so maybe this article is for you.

If you’re an online warrior, arcade fiend, or just an interested bystander who has never come to a fighting game tournament before, you might be asking: what’s the big deal? Why would I want to come to Sydney in February?

Well, for your interest, I present five reasons why you should be at OHN11. (more…)

Announcement: OzHadou Nationals 11

The longest running annual fighting game tournament for Australia – the ‘OzHadou Nationals’ (OHN) – will take place in Sydney, Australia next year from February the 22nd through until February the 24th. Once again our venue will be the ‘Red Room’ which is located in the Sydney CBD at ’99 on York’ on 99 York Street.

This marks OHN’s 11th iteration and with it we will be running official tournaments for the following titles:

– Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012 (Xbox 360)
– Ultimate Marvel Versus Capcom 3 (Xbox 360)
– The King Of Fighters XIII (Xbox 360)
– Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (PS3)
– Virtua Fighter 5 (Xbox 360)

OHN 11 follows a similar format to OHN X, whereby Friday will be a meet/greet/casual matches/social session running from late afternoon through the evening; tournament brackets will be run on Saturday (alongside casuals and time permitting, any featured exhibition matches); with the top four for each official tournament game being held on the Sunday. Again, with time permitting we may be able to factor in additional exhibition matches on the Sunday also.

In the coming weeks we will be releasing more detail on OHN 11’s timetable, registration process and overview. Until then, please check out our announcement trailer above put together by Kientan from Sydney which covers key pieces of information. Please also visit the forum thread which you can find here to join in on the discussion and also fire away with any questions you may have.

Here’s hoping we will see you all at OHN again this year!
