VROOM VROOM – YSB revs back into the Red Room on August 19th with Abigail in SFV! This is the last YSB before OzHadou Nationals 15 in September, so it’s your last chance to get some serious gaming in before the big event next month.
This YSB is also the qualifying event for OHN15. Placing well at this YSB will give you seeding at the nationals, so make sure you don’t miss it. If you haven’t already, make sure you register for OHN at the non-‘Hollywood’ rate at http://ohn.ozhadou.net/.
Additionally, the Tekken 7 Tournament at this YSB is NSW’s OzHadou x IeSF Tekken 7 Qualifier, with the winner to compete against other states’ qualified players in Sydney for a chance to represent Australian Tekken in Busan, South Korea. For more information, please refer to http://www.ozhadou.net/ozhadou-x-iesf-tekken-7-qualifiers/.
Registration for YSB is performed via the Smash.GG portal (http://smash.gg/ysb55), 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.
