Title: [SYD] OzHadou Nationals 13 - September 11th - 13th
Post by: Ziggy on July 25, 2015, 10:53:49 AM
The 13th OzHadou Nationals are fast approaching!

OHN13 will be the first community-run Sydney major for MKX, but will also be the"grand finale" for many OHN staples with USF4, TTT2, UMvC3 and KOF13 all unlikely to return to the official line-up next year. OHN13 will be your last chance to claim a national title in these classic fighting games before the next generation of titles comes along in 2016.

For more information, including registration, DIY submissions, etc. visit the official OHN13 website (http://ohn.ozhadou.net).

Who do you think will take out the national titles for 2015? Which state will dominate OHN this year? Which DIY games are you hoping to see?

If you have any questions, predictions, discussions, feedback, etc. please post them in this thread.

Some important updates for OHN13.

Draft Tournament/Stream Schedule Now Available
You can view the schedule over at the OHN13 website (http://ohn.ozhadou.net). The final schedule, including DIY tournaments, will be announced shortly after registration closes. Until then please treat this schedule as our "best estimate" of how things will pan out.

DIY Line-Up Announced
The line-up of DIY tournament games is now available (http://www.ozhadou.net/ohn-13-diy-line-up-announced/). Remember that you must purchase a competitor pass even if you only wish to play casual games or enter DIY tournaments at OHN13. The DIY line-up is huge this year - 9 games in total - so there should be something for everybody at OHN13.

Registrations Closing Sunday 6th September
As always we will not be taking OHN registrations at the venue. All attendees MUST register online before the closing time of midnight on Sunday 6th September.

If you're in Sydney and prefer to pay in person, jarop will be collecting OHN registrations at YSB #35 (http://www.ozhadou.net/york-street-battles-35-september-5th/) on Sep 5th.


Remember this is the last year that USF4, TTT2, UMvC3 and KOF13 will be official games at OHN. If you're a fan of any of these titles then we invite you to join us at 99 on York next month to farewell these great fighting games.

What are you going to replace those games with? I would have thought USF4 and would have still pulled decent numbers.

SF5 will replace SF4. (That should surprise nobody. :P) Like ST and 3S I'm sure USF4 will enjoy DIY support for years to come.

My understanding is that the Tekken community is looking forward to moving over to Tekken 7 (and would have done so already if they could).

Sadly there is no successor for UMvC3. :( I'd like to see it stay but we don't see any significant interest at YSB anymore. Sydney has abandoned Marvel and thus OHN must also abandon it.

I'd like to have KOF13 stay on as well but again there has been a vast drop in interest as the Sydney community has splintered between multiple titles (e.g. GG, Persona, etc.). If any one of these new games had significant support they would have replaced KOF13 this year.

For Sydney players looking to get their game recognised I strongly recommend you support your DIY game(s) of choice at OHN13, then follow that up with consistent YSB support. That's the surest way to get your new game of choice promoted to official status at the next OHN.

Please check the Friday schedule (http://ohn.ozhadou.net/) and see if it works for you before registering. On Friday we can't open the venue to attendees until 6pm.

The entry fees are for the entire weekend, so it's up to everyone to decide if it's worth it for them to pay the $35 if they can only come for one day (or even a few hours) of casual play.

I know it's not very flexible but managing day-by-day entry fee schemes takes a lot more resources (i.e. we have to police it) and we've found it's much better to invest our energy in making sure the venue, setups and tournaments run as smoothly as possible for everybody that attends.

Ziggy,

What's going on with Volunteers this year?

By the looks of it, it seems like you have enough staff.

I may not be able to give as much time as previous years, so I am just weighing up if I should just attend to play SFV and see the finals, if I am not going to be needed as much.

We're all good for volunteers this year Vargus so feel free to come along just to play, spectate and hang out.


A reminder for everyone: registration closes this Sunday (6th Sep) at midnight. Be sure to register ASAP to avoid disappointment.

That should be OK. Please check your pool assignment once we announce that the pools are ready to make sure we've got you covered.

Updates to Rules and Schedule
Now that registration has closed we've made some final adjustments to OHN13. These are:

Please check the OHN13 website (http://ohn.ozhadou.net) for full details regarding the updated rules and schedule.

We've also uploaded a list of registered players so please check to make sure your details are correct and contact us asap if you have any concerns.

We'll be announcing the pools very soon, along with the DIY tournament schedule. Keep an eye on the usual communication channels for the latest news.

Unfortunately not; we don't sell tickets at the door for OHN and haven't done so for many years now.

OHN13 Pool Times
We've uploaded a list of people's pool assignments with estimated start times: http://ohn.ozhadou.net/competitors.html

Players should report to their pools at least 10 minutes prior to the estimated start time. We have done our best to minimise overlaps for players in multiple official tournaments. Remember however that official pools take precedence over DIY brackets so be sure to manage your availability accordingly and communicate any clashes with the people running your brackets on the day.

OHN13 Stream Channels
If you can't make it to OHN13 you can still follow the action at home courtesy of our live stream team:

Unfortunately we had too many constraints preventing an impromptu SF5 tournament at OHN13. :(

Many thanks again to Capcom and Turn Left Distribution for giving us a rare opportunity to try SF5 months ahead of its release.
