Title: [SYD] - YSB #16 + OHN 11 Qualifiers - January 19th, 2013
Post by: Gamogo on December 20, 2012, 11:49:20 AM
Your attention please.

Here are the details for the next YSB ('York Street Battles') fighting games event. One again, the plan is to hold this event in 99 on York's Red Room.

(http://www.ozhadou.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/logo_ysb1-150x150.png)

Details
Date: Saturday 19th January, 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 again. Details soon.)

In addition to the usual YSB format, this YSB's tournaments will double as Sydney/NSW's OHN 11 (http://ohn.ozhadou.net) seeding qualifiers. In short, this means that the top three placers in each of the tournaments will receive seeding points for OHN 11's (http://ohn.ozhadou.net) official tournament brackets.

The doors will open at 11.30am so we can start setting up. If you're bringing setups, it is recommended that you come at this time so you can set your stuff up as well. Also, if you plan on parking downstairs you will have more chance of getting a spot if you're early.

You are free to move about any setup you like playing various casual games, though in the interest of fairness and ensuring everyone gets games in, please restrict your casual matches to the best of three games, before swapping out with someone who is waiting. Winner stays on.

Bring Your Own Controller (BYOC)
To prepare for future major events like OHN and aligning ourselves with EVO, setups provided by OzHadou for casual and tournament play will not have any controllers (sticks/pads). If you want to play on these setups, you will need to plug in your stick or pad. There will be no spare controllers available. On the slight chance that people aren't using their stick or pad, you can ask them for permission to borrow it. Keep in mind they are allowed to refuse. Guilt tripping them will not be tolerated. Alternatively, if you have made arrangements beforehand with your friends to share sticks that's fine as well. Seriously though, save yourself the hassle and carry a back pack with a stick/pad in it.

OzHadou setups are all Xbox360. For those people who are bringing their own setups that use other consoles, sticks should be provided. The Sydney Tekken Community intends to provide all equipment (including sticks) and will be playing TTT2 on PS3, although availability of setups for Tekken at this stage is yet to be confirmed. Further details for Tekken will be coming soon.

If you're catching public transport, get off at Town Hall Station or the Queen Victoria Building (QVB). When you arrive at 99 on York, head through the automatic doors that lead into the club on the right and walk up the stairs to level 1 and turn left.

Parking
The venue also offers parking. Details can be found here: http://www.99onyork.com.au/YORK/client/GeneralContent/c_singleDynamicPage.jsp?pageName=Car%20Parking (http://www.99onyork.com.au/YORK/client/GeneralContent/c_singleDynamicPage.jsp?pageName=Car%20Parking). The parking entrance is located at 168 Clarence St Sydney NSW 2000. The rate is $20 non-members for the whole day. Please note: you will need to hand your keys to the car park manager. As mentioned before, you will probably need to get in early for parking as other rooms may also be booked.

There are other car parks around the area if you don't like the idea of handing them your keys and for cheaper too.
Cinema Centre Car Park (Centro Parking): accessible 24/7 from 521-527 Kent St and 306-318 Sussex St. $10 on Saturday if you enter before 5pm.

Are people usually willing to lend sticks? This will be my first tourney if I go but I only have a ps3 stick, no eckzbockz. I've been procrastinating by not going to these cause I dont have a stick but its holidays so...

No. We will be accepting payment at the door much like previous events. We have been far too busy to set this up. Please bring correct change.

$15 entry, $5 per tournament you wish to enter.

Folks are quite reasonable about floating sticks around. See me if you choose to come and you can borrow mine however. Ask for Shane/Gamogo and I'll hook you up.

As Shane has already mentioned before, we will not be doing online payments; we will be collecting cash at the door like before. Please have the correct change to make things easier. Don't try to sneak past me or I will destroy you, haha.

I'm coming, though I have a quick question: I have to jet pretty much the second I'm out and though going two and out would be an option ('CAUSE I'M SHITHOUSE) it's not really the preferred one. I never pay attention to what time it is when we start: is 5pm ballpark, or is it a mandate?

We'll do our best to start tournaments off at the designated times. It's a ballpark time, though we try to be as close to those times as possible.

The Red Room isn't a minor restricted area is it?
I've sent the club an inquiry, but I reckon it'll be a while till they get back to me.
