[SYD] York Street Battles #38 – January 30th


Happy New Year! 2016 is going to be a huge year for the FGC, so come join us for the first Sydney monthly of the year. Here are the details:

Date: Saturday, January 30th
Time: 11:30am – 10:30pm
Location: Bass Suite, Level 2, 99 York St Sydney NSW 2000
Entry Fee: $15 (venue entry)

Centralised registration will cease at 2pm so if you arrive after that, please find one of the tournament organisers floating around and sign up via one of us.

Tournament times are as follows:

3:00pm – The King Of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition (MadeMan)
4:00pm – Ultra Street Fighter IV (Alexk/Goodpart)
4:30pm – Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (Jarop/Kyokugen)
5:00pm – Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown 1 v 1 tournament followed by War Games* (MadeMan)
TBC – Mortal Kombat X (FaYd/Gillbagz)

Note: More tournaments will likely be confirmed closer to the event, check back here or make sure you’re following the Twitter/Facebook for updates.

*Like last YSB, a 2 team Virtua Fighter 5 exhibition will be run after the singles tournament. War Games is a more casual event aimed to pit new players against each other in order to better learn the game with some coaching from more experienced teammates. VF TO MadeMan explains how it will work in conjunction with the singles event:

If you’re interested in trying VF, please note the first tournament in the series is going to be FREE. No entry fee, but a prize will be put up for first place. Take this opportunity to have some fun and play with fellow new players. We’ll also be running the War Games elimination team battle like last YSB. You’ll be matched up against someone of similar skill and slowly move up to better players should you win! In case you missed the action last time, check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qM8rMVAPOFk

Tournament attendance is optional and will only run if there are sufficient numbers and interest on the day. Signups will be taken 30 minutes before scheduled start time. Please locate a YSB staff member to register.

Tournament fee for USFIV is $5, with the entry distributed for the top 3 players. Tournament fees for DIY games are dependent on the organiser of the respective DIY tournament.

See you all there!
