[SYD] YSB #30 - 11th April
« on: April 06, 2015, 01:17:51 PM »

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone had a great Easter break.

A late announcement with the details of the upcoming YSB - for all YSB dates in the year, please refer to this link:

We're doing a few things differently this YSB with regards to registration, and having a few tournaments as well. For more information, please refer to the details below.

As usual, we'll be offering an entry fee refund to a lucky person who signs up here. For OzHadou forum members, all you need to do is click "Sign Up". If you are browsing as a guest at the moment, we recommend you to sign in with your OzHadou forum account if possible. Otherwise, simply type your game handle and the game you play in the comments section. Suspicious guest sign-ups will be ignored in the draw.

Date: Saturday, 11th April 2015
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 bringing setups, it is recommended to arrive at this time so we can help coordinate the space and power requirements for the setups on the day. Also, if you plan on parking downstairs you will have more chance of getting a spot if you're early.

Players are free to move about any game and any setup for casual games, though in the interest of fairness and ensuring everyone gets games in, please restrict casual matches to the best of three games if anyone else is waiting to play. Winner stays on. Please be considerate of others and ask if any onlookers whether they would like to play games.

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 - Sydney’s monthly gathering for all fighting games, which is supported for the players by the players. It is held at the central venue of 99 on York St in Sydney’s CBD.

Casual play, exhibitions and tournaments are all welcomed and encouraged on the day on a multitude of OzHadou and DIY set up games. Tournaments are optional, and will be run if there are sufficient numbers/interest on the day, with casual play taking up the majority of the event.

All players, communities and games are welcome - if there is a game which is not listed for DIY, please feel free to come and bring a setup - YSB is the ideal place to get people playing and interested!

BYOC - Bring Your Own Controller
Spoiler for Hidden:
Setups provided by OzHadou for casual and tournament play will not have any controllers (sticks/pads). If playing on these setups, you will need to supply your own stick or pad. There will be no spare controllers available.

There may be sticks and/or pads being unused on the day by other players, and borrowing with permission or prior arrangement while permitted, is not advised due to potential availability issues - for example, you may be playing a tournament match against each other, or at the same time. It is therefore highly recommended to bring your own controller regardless; most sticks and pads will easily fit in a small backpack for the event.

OzHadou setups are all Xbox360s running on BenQ LCD and LED monitors. Please consult other groups’ organisers with regards to any other controllers needed on the day.

Signups will be taken at the front of the Red Room by the YSB organisers - David (kyokugen), Henry (Genxa), Jonathan (Jarop), Will (azuzu) or Youssef (FaYd). Please stop by at the front desk before moving onto playing casual/tournament games.

We will be collecting registration on the day at the front until 2pm. If arriving after 2pm, please locate a YSB organiser to register. Please make it a note to locate and register as soon as you arrive at the venue, and to have correct change to make the process as smooth as possible. We will be checking registered players throughout the day.

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

How to Get There
Directions to the venue may be found at the link below:

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.

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. Due to this system at the venue, the car park may take some time to get into, or appear closed for periods. As mentioned previously, arriving early is recommended to minimise hassle.
