Smash Ultimate

1. Kanga|Jdizzle

2. SebPro101

3. FURY|RaZe

A force has been bubbling beneath the surface in VIC Ultimate… one which, after months of near-misses, had now grown too powerful to be denied. Jonathan “KANGA|Jdizzle” Douglas has long been recognised as among our nation’s best, but he has always been the bridesmaid at our monthlies, losing Grands to 3 different players in the last 3 months. Here he finally snatched the trophy, having swept the entire bracket flawlessly. But the man he lost to last month – oft-time doubles partner Bradley “DD” Kun – was not registered to compete, leaving the question open should they meet again in March.

Smash Melee

1. DS|Sora

2. LGC|DonB

3. Kanga|Dekar

Another stable tournament for the VIC Melee scene with DarkSided star Joshua “Sora” Lyras looking smooth as butter in his unbeaten run. Melbourne Melee honcho and CouchWarriors President Cailan Kingsbury showed up on the day with a solid 4th place, tagging up as “MM|Caesar” as befits his lofty status.

Ultimate Doubles

1. SebPro101 / R!OT|Duon

2. Kanga|Jdizzle / Shen

3. P9 / Insie

To gain something, one must give something up, and so we saw Jdizzle finally slip from the top of the double rankings this month. Instead it was his winning partner from January, Jason Lee “R!OT|DOME|Duon” Mustapic, who took it down – giving Sebastian “SebPro101” Tabone revenge on Jdizzle for his singles loss in the process.

Melee Doubles

1. FTD|lil se$h / Skip

2. Bubby / Fess

3. Emps / Splice

We almost got the huge 6-0 Grand Finals reset here, but the dynamic duo of Campbell “FTD|lil se$h” Purves and Patrick “Skip” Atallah rallied at the brink and brought it back to lock up their victory.

Project M

1. OsP|Microsoft J

2. Bubby

3. Fess

The absence of a few top Project M competitors gave space for some new names to shine this month, as well as for Jordi “OsP|Microsoft J” Giannopoulos to show his class and pick up a ranbat win. He still had to earn it though, as Rebecca “Bubby” Owen made a gutsy run through Losers (including winning their runback against Didier “Fess” Vincent) and took the first set off Microsoft J in Grand Finals before finally going down.

Rivals of Aether

1. SNC

2. RC|Jet

3. Conga-Heli

Congratulations to all of our top-placed competitors from February!

Street Fighter V

  1. DS|Somniac
  2. ORDER|ROF
  3. Rupps

I think I have to apologize to Christian “ORDER|ROF” Dedalija for jinxing him last month. No sooner did I boast about his seeming invincibility in SFV than Xavier “DS|Somniac” Nardella rose to the challenge and brought the endboss down. Somniac’s run was even more impressive as he had to recover from a round 2 loss to John “ZEDDD” Le, but the veteran rallied and eventually overwhelmed ROF 6 games to 2 across two grand final sets.

Street Fighter V

  1. ORDER|ROF
  2. syo
  3. ZEDDD

Whatever else can be said about Christian “ORDER|ROF” Dedalija, he at least makes it easy for me doing these recaps – I can just leave his tag at the top of the standings every month. His reign of dominance stretching back to October overshadows a big run from multi-game threat John “ZEDDD” Le to claim another podium finish.

Turns out, he could.

  1. Willing Foe
  2. Antaresxv
  3. Happy

Marco “Antaresxv” Encina wasn’t been able to make a lot of ranbats over the back half of 2019 – but whenever he does show up he shows he hasn’t lost his edge. He was able to start the year off right with a strong second place here, although he couldn’t get past Wade “WillingFoe” Ballantyne who finished on top, undefeated.
