The 14th OzHadou Nationals kicks off in less than 2 days! We have some more important updates for everyone following OHN14: the official tournament brackets and stream channels for our premier 3-day fighting game event.
The tournament brackets are now available! All Smash Bros. game brackets, including Project M and SSB64, are available in smash.gg while the rest of the brackets can be found in the OzHadou Challonge page.
Today is the final day of registration for OzHadou Nationals 14. At midnight tonight online registrations will close. With only 33 passes left to sell at the time of this post this will be our final call for registrations.
Australia’s impressive contingent at Evolution 2016 included several enthusiastic Tekken 7 players. Over on the Australia Tekken Community Facebook group member Daniel Ng has compiled a list of Twitch archive links for key Australian player Tekken 7 matches at Evo. These include matches from the official tournament pool, some exhibition matches and a few casual games.
If you’re still on the fence about BAM8, check out the recently released trailer from organisers CouchWarriors.
Online registrations will be closing this Saturday May 7th, after which attendees will incur a $10 venue entry surcharge and likely wait in long queues when registering on the day. Official tournaments for Smash Bros. can only be entered via online registration, so for some pre-registration will be critical.
Filmed at our very successful Feb Ranbat/SFV launch tourney at the CQ hotel, in this episode we look at some behind-the-scenes action and what people think of SFV – and we also interview the new president of CouchWarriors: Daniel “Spoony” Finegan and the Treasurer Michael “Javi” Thai.
The CouchWarriors February 2016 Ranbats took place last Saturday. This was a super-sized ranbat featuring the official Melbourne launch tournament for Street Fighter V along with regular ranbat games such as Smash Bros., Mortal Kombat X and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round.
CQ Functions was packed with 307 attendees, including 85 competitors in SF5, 156 entries for Smash 4 singles plus 80 for Melee singles. In the end ZG was the first Melbourne champion in SF5, with his Vega defeating veteran Toxy in the grand finals.
Read on for the top 8 players in SF5, with photos and further results available after the jump. You can also visit the CouchWarriors Facebook page for more photos and feedback from the Feb 2016 ranbat.

Last Saturday the Gold Coast FGC organised a fitting farewell tournament for Ultra Street Fighter IV at Good Games on the Gold Coast. Originally projected to attract 25 players, the tournament exceeded organiser expectations with 39 registered competitors in the brackets and a total prize pool of $700 up for grabs.
Victory was claimed by Brisbane’s ON|Colonov, beating out YassBass777 3-1 in the grand final. Below we have top 8 results and prizes, along with photos, brackets and match videos from the tournament.
It’s been a little over a month since the Southern Cross Championships went down in Adelaide. The tournament organisers, the South Australian Fighting Game Community, have been hard at work archiving match videos from the event.
Currently matches for MKX, Smash 4 and SSBM are available. Below we have the MKX grand finals. For other matches from SXC2k15 check out the SAFGC Youtube page.
GooGie’s 3rd online tournament for Mortal Kombat X went down last Sunday. Once again the event was in high demand, generating over 3 hours of match videos. In the end it was SXC2k15 MKX champion N-Megabytes that emerged victorious, defeating ImCastiel in the grand final.
Below is part 1 of the video archive from the tournament. Parts 2 and 3 can be found after the jump.
