[SYD] York Street Battles #40 – March 19th


March’s YSB is shaping up to be a big one with Kombat Pack 2, Street Fighter V and much, much more on-deck at the event. Some important things to note this month – we’re ending Legacy Controller support for Street Fighter V on PS4 and have significantly revised the tournament schedule. There’s a lot to look forward to this YSB, here are the details:

Date: Saturday, March 19th
Time: 11:30am – 10:30pm
Location: Red Room, Level 1, 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 for this month are as follows:
2:00pm – Street Fighter V
3:00pm – The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match
4:00pm – Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-
5:00pm – Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
6:00pm – Mortal Kombat X

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, look for a YSB staff member to register. The tournament fee for SFV and MKX 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 and discounted entry will be offered to those who bring a full set-up (monitor + console).

See you there!
