Ohio Circuit Series

OCS PLAYER REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

The Ohio Circuit Series (OCS) features a number of hobby shops within the state of Ohio that are working together to create a championship level series of tournaments for the betterment of both themselves and the gaming community-at-large. The first step is to plan activities and events that do not directly conflict with other hobby shops in the OCS as a means to perpetuate goodwill and provide a common player base with a multitude of gaming options. The second step is to create a means to encourage players to engage in the opportunities provided by the OCS while also providing the hobby shops an opportunity to share their space with the community. Each hobby shop in the OCS will follow a similar event model for each game. Most OCS events will utilize tournament brackets provided by Challonge.Com.

How It Works:
The OCS will issue points to players based upon placement in each tournament held by each hobby shop that utilized the OCS’ Challonge Organization. That means that sanctioned events using a game company’s native software will not count. At the end of the season, one of the hobby shops will host an invitational championship tournament for the top players of that season. To qualify, players must register via this Google Form.

Participating Hobby Shops:
Kidforce Collectibles (Berea)
Level Two Games (Avon)
The Hero Zone/The POP Shop (Sandusky)
The Shop, Game Stop (Vermilion)
Warhost Games (Avon Lake)
