[NSW] OHNX DIY Portal - Syd, 17th-19th Feb, 2011

DIY Tournament Portal
Welcome to the DIY Tournament Portal for OHNX. Here you'll find a list of the DIY tournaments that have been announced for OHNX, with links to each thread so you can check out the rules and register your interest.

I'll use this thread to make general announcements regarding DIYs plus, as well as raising any requests for information from DIY organisers.

Remember that all brackets for DIY tournaments will be taking place on Saturday, 18th of February. Check the OHNX schedule for a summary of starting times for all DIY tournaments.

What are DIY Tournaments?
DIY tournaments are tournament brackets being run for games by OHN attendees. These tournaments are not organised or managed by OHN staff. Rather they are side tournaments organsied by players attending OHN, using hardware they bring along. Hence the "Do-It-Yourself" in the title. :)

How does a DIY Tournament work?
To register for a DIY tournament you must first pay venue entry for OHN. You can just pay the general venue entry fee if you aren't competing in any of the official OHN tournaments, but either venue entry fee entitles you to compete in DIY tournaments at OHN.

Next find the links for any DIY tournaments you're interested in and sign-up in their respective threads. You can also check details about rules, game versions, prizes and entry fees in these threads. Be sure to check the OHN schedule so that you'll be on time for the DIY tournament.

Finally, once you arrive at OHN on Saturday 18th Feb, go to the designated DIY tournament area before your DIY tournament starts and pay the entry forr to the DIY tournament organiser.

OHNX DIY Threads
Road to Evo 2012
OHNX is part of the Road to Evo 2012, which means players at OHNX can earn seeding points for tournaments at Evo 2012 . Since Evo includes Soul Calibur V and King of Fighters XIII in its official line-up, OHN will make the DIY tournaments for these games eligible for Evo seeding points provided they are run in a manner consistent with Evo's rules.

DIY Finals for Sunday
In addition, we will aim to run the Final 4 matches for both SCV and KOFXIII on the main stage and OHNX stream on Sunday, 19th of February. This is conditional on us being able to get these games to work with our streaming equipment. We also ask that finals matches be kept to a reasonable number of games otherwise we won't have enough time to stream these in addition to the official finals.

Prizes
In addition to any prizes listed in the rules for each DIY tournament, OHNX will provide a champion medallion for the winner of each DIY tournament listed in this thread. To be eligible for this you must announce your DIY tournament before Monday, 23rd of January.

Venue Entry
You can only play games at OHNX if you have purchased a venue entry for OHNX. Registrations are now open for OHNX, and the earlier you pay the cheaper your venue entry will be.

Controllers
You'll notice that these tournaments are NOT run on Xbox 360 consoles. As such the OHNX BYO Controller policy does not apply to DIY tournaments. DIY organisers will make sure sticks are available for the setups they provide.

People are still welcome to BYO controller if they wish. Just make sure you bring something that will work on the hardware used for the DIY tournament you're entering.


Please visit the OHN website to register for venue entry.Tournament entry fees are payable directly to DIY organisers during OHNX.

Questions
If you have any questions regarding a particular DIY tournament, please raise them with the relevant DIY organisers via there respective forum threads.

DIY organisers can raise any questions with OHNX staff via this thread or by contacting me directly.

Can DIY organisers please give some thought to the times they'll be running their brackets on Saturday? We need to get the schedule up to date, but can't do that until we have some clarity around when each DIY is likely to happen.

Please try to avoid overlapping with other DIYs if possible.

I've added some explanations regarding how DIY tournaments work, as we've had a few questions about how they work. I'll also put a link to this thread on the OHNX website.

Could you please add Super Turbo to the list of games?

Sorry about the slight late notice; I just needed to confirm equipment to ensure BYO PS2 controllers were supported. I'm hoping to run the tournament 2pm onwards like last year, but I'm pretty flexible ...

ST has been added to the original post.

I've also updated the schedule with times for all the DIYs on Saturday except for ST. I'll update it again once I have the times for ST.

The OHNX schedule has been revised with new times for all the DIY tournaments.

In terms of overlaps with official tournaments, if you register for a DIY before Monday, 6th Feb we can try to take your DIY tournaments into account when seeding the official tournament pools. We can't promise to avoid overlaps but if you give us fair warning via DIY registration threads we'll do our best to help you out.

I've also added a note about controllers for DIY tournaments in the original post. Mandatory BYO controller only applies to official tournaments. We don't expect people to carry around sticks for PS3 and Xbox 360 all day. :P However you can still BYO controller for DIY tournaments if you wish. Just make sure it's OK with the DIY organisers (especially for ST) and check which platform is being used beforehand.

With the cut-off date for DIY tournament applications behind us, the OHNX website and OH front page have been updated with a run-down on each of the 5 DIY tournaments at OHNX, where each winner will receive an official OHNX champion medallion courtesy of OzHadou.

Check out the article for a brief overview of each DIY tournament game. Many of these games bring with them substantial Australian tournament history with the latest titles offering direct tie-ins to Evo 2011. While these might not be "official" tournaments the competition is expected to be just as fierce as any other tournament game at OHNX.

With only 3 weeks until OHNX, everyone better start practicing if they want a shot at the DIY titles at OHNX. :)

Two minor updates to the DIY details in the original post:
  • ST will now start at 3pm on Saturday; and
  • The target platform for KOF13 is now Xbox 360 instead of PS3.
We've also been given Madcatz Round 2 TE sticks for for the winners of the SC5 and KOF13 tournaments. This is in addition to any prize money listed in the details for these tournaments and the official OHNX champion medal for 1st place in each of the DIY tournaments.

DIY organisers please post your results in the Post Event Discussion forum so that people can easily locate them.

Thanks to everyone that ran DIY tournaments at OHNX. Don't forget that we need valid email addresses for the top 16 players in SC5 and KOF13 in order to secure their Road to Evo points for Evo 2012. If these aren't provided promptly players will forfeit their seeding points for Evo 2012.
