It’s the biggest gaming event of the year – and CouchWarriors is proud to be providing the Fighting Game Tournaments services for PAX Australia this coming weekend!
In the Console Tournament area we will have a full suite of consoles set with a library of fighters to play. Join us for one of the many tournaments each day, or come by and practice. We’ll even be providing time for Learn To Play, so if you want to dip your toes into the playing fighters at their best – side by side with other people – now’s your chance.
Tournaments! We have a small set rotating roster of excellent tournament games to play, plus a range of additional games to play in casuals. With some games being played in tournaments more than once over the weekend, we’re looking forward to a Best of the Best playoff each day and Sunday.
You can also challenge your friends with our friendly Winners Stays – Limit of 3 Wins rules for all games.
Plus! Panel! Don’t forget there will be an Australian Fighting Game community panel at PAX, hosted by New Game Plus and featuring panelists from across the scene
Tournaments, casual games, tips and training – CouchWarriors Ranking Battles are a day long fighters festival! Newcomers are welcome as well as tournament veterans. This is the traditional CouchWarriors event since formation in 2006!
This month we’ve just seen the release of Super Smash Bros on the 3DS, so we expect plenty of people to bring their handhelds!
That’s alongside tournaments for a range of other games. All rankings and results will be tallied at the end of the year. Come play or BYO your setup. Enjoy some casuals or get in your tournament practice going with our structured events.
