Announcing the CouchWarriors schedule of events for 2015! We had a brilliant 2014 with fantastic ranking battle attendances each month, a gangbusters national event in BAM6. We also added Meet N Mash Friday weeklies in the city and hosted tournaments at events like CHAOZ, ANIMAGA and of course PAX AUSTRALIA.
We’re proud to be supporting the fighting game community and looking forward to a fun fighting game filled 2015! We hope to see you at one of these events to compete, learn to play or just have some great sets in your favourite games.
RANKING BATTLES – MONTHLY TOURNAMENTS

BAM7: BATTLE ARENA MELBOURNE 7 – MAY 22, 23, 24
The Melbourne community major event, and one of Australia’s main National tournaments, BAM returns. It will once again
be at the CQ Functions Room on Queen and Collins st, Melbourne. We’ve got big plans to entertain the whole community, plus it’s a big year for fighters
with new releases.

Community help and volunteering:
We’re all volunteers and always appreciate help from people who want to contribute, which in turn helps the whole community. Want to take part and help keep these great events running?
Volunteers are always welcome and needed, from an extra pair of hands transporting or unpacking gear at ranking battles to running brackets and spreading the word
about each event.
Just bringing your friends to play your favourite game is a big help!
CouchWarriors Committee and Roles:
As a not for profit community organisation, we have a committee and elected official positions. We would like to announce the 2015 officer positions, and some highlight community roles.
