Super YSB #15 Pre-Payment

As mentioned in our Super YSB announcement, we will be giving online pre-payment a try for the next event. This will require a Paypal account to use, much like OHN entry.

For now we are only accepting general entry which is $15. Tournament entries ($5 per game) will be collected on the day and allocated to the prize pots for each game. Please be sure to specify your preferred gamertag/handle so that we can accurately populate the brackets should you choose to enter any tournaments. You can visit the pre-payment page here. For any questions or queries for the event, please leave a comment below or in the YSB #15 thread on the forums.

Protector of Australia’s Skies: Interview with George “Afterdeath” Hu

Russia hasn’t seen this much love since Buranovskiye Babushki at Eurovision.

In the span of a month, Zangief has seen a dominating first/third place finish at sf25 Los Angeles, a top 5 at SBa, and on the local front, a first place finish at EB Expo Sydney, as well as a top 5 finish at Battle Arena Melbourne. The man responsible for the latter two results, George “Afterdeath” Hu, sits down to talk about Vodka Gorbalsky, Beijing arcades, and a technique so unique that it was named after him: The George.


Super YSB 15: The New Challengers!

Update: An online pre-pay/sign up page is now available for YSB #15. Please check it out here.

For those of you in Sydney the next YSB event will be a little bit different. We will be expanding YSB to include the Sydney Tekken Community thanks to the TTT2 console release.

Date: Saturday 10th November, 2012
Time: 12pm – 11pm
Location: Red Room, Level 1, 99 York St Sydney NSW 2000
Entry Fee: $15 prepay online*, $20 at the door

(*In the coming days we will have an online payment system available. Details soon.)

The next YSB will be held at 99 On York as per usual, however we will be moving into the ‘Red Room’ which is the same room as the last two OHNs. This means we have a larger area to use, more players and an expanded array of fighting games to play. The format of the day will be the same as usual, with the same starting times (12pm – 11.00pm). For those of you new to YSB, please read on for more details.
