CouchWarriors Crossup is Upon Us!

We’re just days away from the sensational last event of CouchWarriors League 2022, and the last Australian major of the year. CouchWarriors Crossup returns to Melbourne this weekend, with a bigger venue and bigger selection of fighting games to cap off another year’s competition. That includes the highlight game from last CWC, DragonBall FighterZ – and the stakes will be high, as we are once again a DBFZ World Tour Power Event.

CWL Results & Roundup for October

October’s events were the finish line of our CouchWarriors League points race, and with how fierce the competition has been this year that meant a ton more pressure on any leaderboard hopefuls.

CouchWarriors Crossup still looms as the season finale. But the points championship for each game is still a big prize – and for players who can’t travel to that event in person, the biggest one. With one more chance at the 2022 crown, who among them would muster the strength to seize it?

Events and Details: October 2022

We continue the exhilarating race to the finish in this month’s CouchWarriors League schedule, with one more big event queued up to help ambitious players climb the leaderboards: Big Cheese 3.

This one matters most for our South Australian hopefuls, with a hometown Major to catch them up on all the points others have reaped from BAM 2022 and Dreamhack Melbourne. But there’s still regular ranbats and CWL Online monthlies running elsewhere, plus the Champions’ Challenge at PAX Aus – not a ranked event, but there will be sponsored prizes plus the new test build of Street Fighter 6!

Here are the dates and sign-up links for all October’s CouchWarriors League events – both online and offline.

CWL Results & Roundup for September

October was an absolute crucible for our CouchWarriors League hopefuls, with major events studded across the calendar and a ton of points up for grabs.

With some of our more dominant leaders pulling ahead of the pack, a double points win at Dreamhack Melbourne would be one chance to reel them back in. Perhaps the last chance for our resident Victorians, since October’s Major action is all in Adelaide! As if the stage at Rod Laver Arena weren’t high-pressure enough…

DreamHack Melbourne Recap

In addition to our regular slate of ranking CouchWarriors League tournaments, September featured some of our biggest annual events all packed into one month. But the most intense experience was to be on the floor at the inaugural Dreamhack Melbourne, where 189 CWL competitors did battle in the middle of Rod Laver Arena!

The CouchWarriors Stage area was dead centre of Rod Laver Arena.

Amid the thunderous noise from a gamut of different esports tournaments, we crowned Dreamhack champions for Street Fighter V, DNF Duel, Smash Ultimate and Guilty Gear: Strive. The weekend was capped off with a Tekken World Tour Prime Dojo tournament, which also doubled as a CWL ranking event in its own right. Stakes were high, with a $1000 prize pool on offer for each game, and the arena atmosphere made for a truly unique tournament.

Event Gallery: Crunchyroll Expo

After a massive month of competition at the highest level Australia has to offer, CouchWarriors capped our September calendar with an appearance at Crunchyroll Expo Aus 2022!

There were no CWL ranking points to claim this time, as we opened up the Super Arcade for some old-fashioned walk-up challenges. But there were still plenty of prizes for those in attendance – and best of all, the first chance to play sets of Street Fighter 6 on Australian shores!

Events and Details: September 2022

CouchWarriors League is starting off September with a bang, thanks to DreamHack Melbourne and its raft of CWL-ranking $1000 tournaments.

For those who aren’t able to make it to Melbourne this weekend, never fear; there’s still all our regular ranbats and CWL Online events to shoot for! Here are the dates and sign-up links for all August’s CouchWarriors League events – both online and offline.
