[SYD] YSB #22/BAM6 Qualifiers - 12th April
« on: March 25, 2014, 01:10:36 AM »


Greetings.

Details
Date: Saturday, 12th April 2014
Time: 11:30am - 10:30pm
Location: Red Room, Level 1, 99 York St Sydney NSW 2000
Entry Fee: $15

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.

While OzHadou and other communities are providing gear throughout the day, DIY setups are welcome for all games, listed or otherwise; the more setups, the more games for everyone on the day!

What is YSB?
YSB stands for York Street Battles. A monthly gathering of fighting game players in Sydney at a central location in the city (99 York Street in the CBD) for a full day (and evening!) of casual matches, exhibitions and tournaments for various fighting games.

YSB is intended for all players of all levels be you a beginner, serious player, casual player or even a spectator. All are welcome to attend and meet others who enjoy the genre in a local setting.

With BAM6 approaching on the 10th-12th May 2014, the top two placings for each tournament run at this YSB will receive seeding points for the Melbourne major. These seeding points will be passed down in the event that players cannot attend BAM this year.

Games which may qualify can be found on this page, however not all games will be run by YSB staff.

BYOC - Bring Your Own Controller
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 bound to BenQ LCD and LED monitors. Please consult other groups’ organisers with regards to any other controllers needed on the day.

Registration
Signups will be taken at the front of the Red Room by YSB organisers - Myself (Kyokugen), Henry (Genxa), Jonathan (Jarop), Will (Azuzu) or Youssef (FaYd).

In addition to entry fees, tournament fees will be collected for games running on OzHadou equipment, i.e. SSF4:AE2012, and UMVC3. Any other tournaments will be arranged by their respective communities.

Games Confirmed
 - SSF4:AE 2012
 - Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
 - Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (Tekken gear)
 - King of Fighters XIII (KOF gear)
 - Injustice: Gods Among Us (IGAU gear)

2:30pm - KOFXIII
3:30pm - SSF4:AE2012 (TBC)

If anyone wishes to confirm gear, or run any tournaments not listed above, please reply in this thread so I can add to the list above. Once again, the top two of any tournament run at BAM6 will receive seeding points from this YSB’s tournament.

How to Get There
Directions to the venue may be found here: http://www.99onyork.com.au/how-to-get-here
If 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 on the right, which lead into the club, then walk up the stairs to level 1 and turn left.

Parking
All-day parking up til midnight is available at the venue for $15. A $5 discount may be attained with a 99onYork membership, which costs $10 a year (ask the front desk). Simply present the card to the staff at the car park office before using the payment machine to receive the discount.

Please note, as this is a valet service, keys to vehicles must be handed to the 99onYork staff while the car is parked in the car park. As this car park is rather popular, it is advised to arrive as early as possible to ensure a spot.

Alternatives to this car park are as follows:
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.

Important to note that this is an Official Qualifier for BAM6 down in Melbourne during May.

Top 2 placing in each official tournament will receive seeding points towards their entry in BAM.
If any of the top2 placing can not make it to BAM, then points may be passed down.

I've just moved up from Adelaide and haven't got my stick shipped over. Would anyone be willing to lend me one for KoF?

No Smash tomorrow due to an event clash. The Smash guys know the dates for the next couple of YSBs, so this won't happen in the future hopefully.

To Akira - Don't know if you're on the forums but I played some VF with you at YSB. If you're interested in getting in some online matches with the VF community check out the Australia VF facebook page, there are some players on PSN on there too.
