Events Calendar – December 2023

It’s that very special time of year again, one we’ve all been looking forward to for months. A chance to celebrate with friends and loved ones, to look back on the year’s efforts, and then to top it all off with a huge day of fighting game tournaments. That’s right, CouchWarriors Crossup returns in a new one-day format to close out 2023!

This event will also be the CouchWarriors League Winter Season Finale, where our best players land their final blows in the struggle for leaderboard supremacy. There will also be plenty of side-game tournaments, the launch of a Guilty Gear card game, and the CW Community Awards presentation! Read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of December’s #CWLeague events.

Events Calendar: November 2023

November gives us the opportunity to recharge between a convention-and-major-packed October and the holiday chaos of December. CWL Online events may have concluded for the year, but our regular state ranbats give fighters around Australia the chance to pick up a few more points before the end of the CouchWarriors League Winter Season.

Despite venue issues delaying this schedule release there are still tournaments to sign up for in many states – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of November’s #CWLeague events.

Events Calendar: October 2023

By far the biggest month on the back half of our 2023 calendar, October brings us two massive spectacles across its first two weekends. First up, CouchWarriors will once again be representing the FGC at PAX Australia, running tournaments and friendlies out of the console gaming area all weekend!

While PAX AUS isn’t a CWL ranking event, our other marquee event will absolutely make an impact on our seasonal leaderboards. The Big Cheese 4 is the most important opportunity for our elite players since Battle Arena Melbourne – and as always, the chance to redefine the state vs. state pecking order will be a strong motivator.

The logjam of special events means that our regular ranbat schedule is subject to change – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of September’s #CWLeague events.

Events Calendar: September 2023

With next month’s Big Cheese 4 looming as a major shakeup of the CouchWarriors League ladder, September’s ranking events will be an important warmup and scouting opportunity for top players across our featured games.

The Tekken scene in particular will have a great chance to measure the form of interstate rivals in this month’s CWL Online bracket. We’re also excited to look outside our CWL featured games and put on several prize-supported tournaments for the Brawlhalla community!
That’s just a taste of the action on offer though – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of September’s #CWLeague events.

Events Calendar: August 2023

August looks to be an intriguing month around the CouchWarriors League, as many players return from a post-BAM hiatus to once again focus on tournament competition. The Street Fighter 6 metagame continues to mature, and barring significant patches this month’s ranbats should tell us a lot about who currently has a claim to being Australia’s best player.

Meanwhile, this month’s CWL Online bracket offers the Smash scene as a chance to scout interstate matchups ahead of the Big Cheese major – as well as a big chunk of points. That’s just a taste of the action on offer though – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of August’s #CWLeague events.
