The EVO APAC Super Street Fighter IV Champion, Daigo Umehara from Japan, and runner-up Humanbomb from Sydney have both won flights to Las Vegas, USA, where they will be competing in the SSFIV tournament at EVO 2010.
The EVO APAC website is now live! This website contains all the information competitors and spectators need to know concerning the EVO APAC tournament, taking place at UTS, Sydney on the weekend of 29th-30th of May, 2010.
The site includes a section documenting the OzHadou APAC qualifier series of tournaments, and complete rules for the EVO APAC event. If you’ll be competing at EVO APAC, be sure to read the rules, as these are a little different to what’s typically used at Australian tournaments.
Remember that the winner of the SSF4 tournament receives a paid flight to Las Vegas, USA to compete at EVO 2010. Just like EVO in the US, all competitors for EVO APAC MUST register online before the event. Make sure you register to avoid missing out!
To celebrate both the release of Super Street Fighter IV and the forthcoming EVO APAC in Sydney, OzHadou is co-ordinating one of the largest tournament series ever attempted within Australia. The series is called OzHadou APAC, and will provide players throughout the APAC region a chance to qualify for SSF4 at EVO APAC in adavance.
This guide is mainly for people who have never entered one of our tournaments before. However, it can also help those who have entered once or twice but don’t fully understand the format.
Standard Format – Double Elimination
Unless specified, all our tournaments are double elimnation. DE tournaments have a winners and losers bracket. On the OzHadou bracket (see below) we all start in the middle of the page in the winners bracket (where the numbers are) and depending on the result of your match you will either progress further to the right (winners) or be moved to the left (losers). As the bracket is played out, players are moved around the bracket either towards the winners side final if they are winning or thrown into the loser’s side where they will progress towards the losers side final.
This May, OzHadou will be hosting the first ever Asia-Pacific qualifier tournament for EVO in Austraila.
EVO APAC will be a two-day tournament event held in Sydney in late May 2010. The highlight of the event will be major tournament for Super Street Fighter IV. The grand prize for SSF4 will be a paid flight to Las Vegas to compete at EVO 2010 in the SSF4 tournament.
