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

BRING YOUR OWN CONTROLLER
Since we’re no longer in the Shadowlogic venue, there aren’t going to be a list of Sticks for people to borrow, and while we should have enough equipment to run the tournaments, everyone will appreciate anybody who can bring setups for casuals and DIYs.
HOW TO GET THERE
Park or get off at Collingwood Station…
Walk either down the alley, or down the main street
We hope to see you all there on Saturday and we can’t wait to see who’s in top form leading up to BAM!
