To see the full results for each official tournament, check out the live online brackets from OHNX. Keep an eye on the OzHadou forums for full results for SC5, KOF13 and other DIY tournaments at OHNX.

Finally for all players that placed top 16 in SSF4:AE, UMvC3, SC5 and/or KOF13 at OHNX, please email us with the valid email address you’re most likely to use when registering for Evo 2012 so that we can secure your Evo seeding points. This needs to be done quickly or you will forfeit your points.

Congratulations to all our OHNX champions, and thanks again to everyone that participated in OHNX.

OHNX: Live Online Tournament Brackets

Have you ever watched a live tournament stream and been unable to work out what’s going on because you can’t see the state of bracket? Or have you ever been at a tournament and had to badger the judges to get a look at your next match? These are familiar scenarios that we’re looking to eliminate at OHNX with the introduction of live online brackets.

By using templates we’ve prepared up in Google Docs we’ll be providing live bracket updates on the web for all the official OHNX tournaments, as well as the finals brackets for our DIY Road to Evo tournaments and even match results for the Capcom exhibitions.

Here are the links to the live online brackets for OHNX. There are two versions to choose from: web pages which should be compatible with any web browser, and Google Docs spreadsheets where you’ll be able to watch the bracket updating in real time.

OHNX Brackets – Web Pages

OHNX Brackets – Spreadsheets

Finally, during the OHNX weekend you’ll be able to keep track of all the action via the OHNX website: ohn.ozhadou.net. Here we’ll be providing quick-links to live streams, brackets and community discussions for OHNX.

On behalf of the OHN Team I’d like to wish all OHNX competitors good luck, and we look forward to seeing who will Claim the Throne in 2012.

OHNX: Capcom Exhibition Rundown


On Sunday the 19th of February the finals for all official and Road to Evo tournaments at OHNX will be taking place. In addition to deciding the 2012 Australian National Champions in SSF4:AE, UMvC3, TTT2, SC5 and KOF13 we’ll be giving away over 30 great prizes in the OHNX Prize Raffle.

However if that’s not enough hype matches for you, check out OHNX from 7pm on Saturday the 19th of February where we’ll be running a series of exciting exhibition matches in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. There will be 3 state rivalry team exhibitions run using the a-cho format. Captains will announce their teams and then secretly determine their team orders and character selections.

For SSF4:AE a team cannot have more than 1 of any given character and Ultras are not locked. For UMvC3 no 2 players on the same team can have exactly the same 3 characters, while assists and character orders are not locked.

We’ll also be running a couple of high profile call-out matches. A rundown for each Capcom exhibition match at OHNX can be found after the jump.

OHNX: Claiming Your Road to Evo Points

As mentioned previously, OHNX is one of many tournaments around the world making up the Road to Evo in 2012. Competitors that place top 16 in Evo games at these events earn ranked seeds at Evolution in Las Vegas on 6th-8th of July 2012.

If you place top 16 in any of these 4 games at OHNX you will be eligible for Road to Evo points:

  • Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Soul Calibur V
  • The King of Fighters XIII


To claim your points, you must come to the tournament desk at OHNX and provide us with the email address you will use to register for Evo 2012. If you do not provide us with this information during OHNX then you will forfeit your Road to Evo points. Please make sure you confirm your placing and get your email address to us during the event, because we need to send the details across to Evo as soon as OHNX is over.

OzHadou thanks Evo for including OHNX in the Road to Evo in 2012.

OHNX: Collecting Passes

Since spectators can attend OHNX for free but are not permitted to play any games, we need a way to identify which people are allowed to use the consoles and arcade cabinets we’ll be providing for casual play at OHNX. We’ll do this by issuing OHNX wristbands to all registered players upon arrival.

Here’s a rundown of how the wristbands work: how and when you collect them and what they entitle you to at OHNX.

1) Registration Times
The OHNX Registration Desk will formally be open from 6pm to 11pm, Friday 17th Feb and 10am to 11am, Saturday 18th Feb. If you arrive to collect your pass outside these times you will have to wait until a staff member is available to help you.

2) Collecting your OHNX Pass
Upon first arriving at OHNX you should line up at the registration desk. Have a copy of your Paypal receipt ready with your Gamer Tag and Region as shown on our list of registered players.

3) Keeping your Wristband Safe
Once we’ve confirmed your details we’ll check you off the list and issue you with your OHNX wristband. These wristbands are durable and waterproof, and are intended to last you for all 3 days. DO NOT REMOVE YOUR WRISTBAND until OHNX is over, otherwise you will have to spend time proving your identity to us before a replacement is issued.

4) No Wristband, No Games
Only people wearing wristbands are allowed to play games at OHNX. Nobody should give up their spot on a casual setup for someone without a wristband, and anyone found playing without a wristband will be asked to leave.

5) TTT2 Passes on Friday
Since there will not be any TTT2 cabinets at the OHNX venue on Friday, we expect most TTT2 players will be at the arcade on George St on Friday. FaYd will also be there, and he’ll be able to issue wristbands to people that have only registered for TTT2.

Note that TTT2 players can still collect their passes on Saturday if preferred.

So remember to have a copy of your Paypal receipt ready, make sure you come to collect your wristband during the allocated times and keep your wristband on until OHNX is over. We look forward to seeing everyone at OHNX this weekend.

Prizes from Namco Bandai at OHNX

We’ve got even more prizes on the way for OHNX, this time from Namco Bandai Partners.

As the official sponsor for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Soul Calibur V Namco Bandai Partners have provided us with these hot new release games to give away:

  • 5 x Soul Calibur V for Xbox 360
  • 5 x Final Fantasy XIII-2 for Xbox 360


We’ll be sharing these prizes between top placing players in the tournaments for TTT2 and SC5, as well as placing a few copies into the OHNX prize raffle, which now has over 30 prizes up for grabs including movies, games and more. The raffle prizes will all be drawn during the finals of OHNX on Sunday the 19th of February. Check the prize section of the tournament rules page to find out exactly how you can win these prizes.

Remember that Namco Bandai Partners are also supporting OHNX by providing one of the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arcade cabinets that will be available for casual play on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of February, along with console setups for Soul Calibur V.

OzHadou thanks Namco Bandai Partners for their generous support for OHNX.
