After 5 years, we’re officially announcing that OzHadou Perth is disbanding. We appreciate the support and attendance at the events we’ve run over the years, whether it was at: Murdoch University Hype Club, ECU Mt Lawley, The Glitch, Café Myriade or at one of the conventions we had the opportunities to be involved with.

As long as there are players, there will always be a community. So don’t stop believing <3

We’d like to thank Weng and all the other TOs for their amazing work over the years. This is by no means the last of the FGC in Perth, be sure to a part of the WA FGC Facebook group to see what’s next!

[Melb] CCH Fighting Game Casuals – September 10

The next CCH (Chris’ Club House) will be held at the Collingwood Library at 3PM this Saturday for more casuals n’ chill.

KOFers – Pyro aka Steve Andreou will be hosting a KOF league at CCH – it will be Swiss format FT3 and will start at 4PM. More details below!

Date: Saturday, September 10th
Time: 3:00pm till late
Location: 11 Stanton St, Abbotsford (Collingwood Library, right next to the Collingwood train station)
Entry Fee: $4 venue fee; anybody that brings either a monitor/console/laptop gets in for free.
Facebook Event Page here.
BYO: screens, consoles and sticks are all appreciated, even if they go unused. The more the merrier.


Pyro’s CCH KOFXIV league: The Prologue

-Swiss format FT3
-Starts at 4PM
-Two tiers T1 and T2

T1 Signup: http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/o4iW8QmbtG
T2 Signup: http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/QafTTU4XIA

Tier 1 is your competitively driven players or veteran players, expect to be playing people that know what they’re doing and are looking to improve even more so. Tier 2 is your new to King of Fighters or I’ve only played it a handful of times. Expect that these players would be looking to get into the game and maybe one day make it to Tier 1. You may choose your own tier, if you think you’re a Tier 1 player, then enter T1 otherwise enter T2. If you’re stomping T2, you may be moved to T1.

Scoring: If you win your set 3-2, you’ll be awarded 3 points. If you’re the loser in this situtation, you’ll only earn 2 points. Effectively you accumulate score over how many games you win regardless of the overall set victory, so consistent attendance will help you here.

End of Season: There will be a prize for the highest number of points for each division, but there may be other prizes to be won should you show vast improvement or community spirit so don’t be discouraged from playing KOFXIV. Pyro will update you on exactly what we’re going to do as soon as he has a good idea.
