[SYD] York Street Battles #53 – June 24th

YSB returns in June with another full day of fighting game action. This month marks Sydney’s first Street Fighter V 2.1 tournament and with Injustice 2 and Tekken 7 being in everyone’s hands for a little while now, expect some incredibly fierce competition across the board.

All pre-registration will now be done through a Smash.GG portal for the event, where you can pay using a debit or credit card. Even if you are paying cash on the day, you can sign up online to make sure you’re in all your brackets ahead of time and then fix it up with the door staff upon arrival. Please make sure all tournament fees are fixed prior to the start of the tournament or you will be disqualified from the bracket. 

Centralised registration on the day will cease at 1pm so if you arrive after that, please find one of the tournament organisers floating around and sign up via one of us. Registration for all Smash games open at 12 and close at 12:30.

There’s a lot to look forward this month as always, here are the details:

Tournament times for this month are as follows:

*note: Registration closes 10 minutes prior to tournament time, please make sure you’re early so you don’t miss out
12:30pm – Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Super Smash Bros. Melee
1:00pm – Street Fighter V
2:00pm – BlazBlue: Centralfiction, Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, Skullgirls (DIY)
3:00pm – The King of Fighters XIV, Tekken 7
4:00pm – Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2
5:00pm – Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Injustice 2

Tournament participation is optional and tournaments will only be run if there are a sufficient number of entrants for each bracket on the day. Signups will open 30 minutes before each scheduled start time and close 10 minutes before the bracket is scheduled to start, look for a YSB staff member to register. The tournament fee for SFV and Injustice 2 is $5 with the entry distributed to the top 3 players. Tournament fees for other games are up to the organiser of each respective tournament and will be decided on the day.

In addition to the listed tournaments, there will be plenty of casuals available for a variety of games on the day. These range from the KOF franchise to older titles to a variety of anime games. If you’d like to co-ordinate casuals for a particular game, drop a comment on the Facebook event or speak to a YSB staff member on the day and we’ll be more than happy to try and co-ordinate a setup. BYO set-ups are also strongly encouraged.

See you there!

throwdown_thu_bris

Throwdown Thursday is back this evening, June 8th, for those looking to get a weeknight fix of Street Fighter V. These sessions, organised by Brisbane Fighters at GUF Brisbane, provide a great chance for players to get some practice between local tournaments. As the event is BYOC, players are encouraged to bring setups for both Street Fighter V and other games. Details for the event are below, but be sure to check the official event page for more info.

OHN 15 DIY Applications are now open

With the trophy and medal games for OHN15 now officially announced, we’re giving community members one final opportunity to get their game on the event floor for either casual play or a DIY tournament. This year we’ve got a very intimate allocation of setups for smaller titles that are yet to be featured as part of the OHN lineup and we want to hear from communities who’d like to represent their game during OHN15.

You can put in an application for a game you’d like to provide for through this form up until July 7th. Successful applicants will be announced shortly after.

[Can] Reload Monthly SFV/Tekken 7 Tournament – June 11th

After a short break, Canberra’s monthly Street Fighter V tournament returns to Reload Bar & Games on Sunday, June 11th, now featuring a tournament for the brand new Tekken 7. These tournaments are run in association with Stick Addiction, Canberra’s fighting game community. $20 will get you entry into both tournaments and includes a pizza and drink, plus there is a bar tab on offer for the tournament winner.

For further details visit the Facebook event page.

Here are the different tiers of tournaments at OHN15

Australia’s FGC is constantly evolving and as such, OHN must evolve with it. At OHN15, we’ll be structuring tournaments a little differently to previous years to best serve all the arms of the community. We’re bringing back the true ‘DIY’ style of tournament absent from OHN14 while also keeping all the new bells and whistles like smash.gg scheduling for each player we had last year. Below is a graphic explaining the different tiers of tournaments at this year’s OHN:

So, what are the Medal and DIY games this year? We’ll have more to announce later this week!

[Bris] Manime Monthlies – June 4th

Brisbane’s Anime FGC is taking over GUF Brisbane with Guilty Gear Xrd Rev2, Blazblue Central Fiction and more this Sunday from 10am. $10 will get you in for the day and all tournament entry is free. You can find more info about the event below or over on Facebook.
