Things are moving fast in the FGC this month, with the big announcements for #BAM13 starting to land and DreamHack Melbourne coming up just a few weeks away. We’re also well into the swing of weekly and monthly #CWLeague events, meaning there’s a ton of leaderboard points up for grabs across April and beyond…
Here are the dates and sign-up links for all our regular April CouchWarriors League events – both online and offline.
After putting the FGC on notice last month with our official #BAM13 announcement, CouchWarriors have brought more fuel for the hype train with the reveal of much-loved team events, more tournament support for anime fighters, and our boppin’ commemorative shirt design:
Get ready – the road to Oceania’s most celebrated fighting game tournament starts now.
CouchWarriors have publicly announced the 2023 installment of Battle Arena Melbourne, BAM13, for the weekend of June 9th-11th.
Signup is NOW LIVE! Book your weekend pass as a player ($60) or spectator ($25) on start.gg!
There are so many exciting details still to come: the tournament lineup, prize pool, sponsorships, World Tour support, international visitors, featured artists, afterparty venue… just make sure you save those dates, and stay tuned for more announcements!
The FGC’s collective holiday hangover is fading away like the summer heat, and it’s time to dive back into the 2023 CouchWarriors League schedule! That schedule now includes The Game Expo Melbourne, which is set to be one of the first non-ranbat offline tournaments of the year.
Here are the dates and sign-up links for that, and all the other March CouchWarriors League events – both online and offline.
CouchWarriors League is officially back for 2023, announcing a new format and points system for the Summer and Winter championship seasons.
The 2023 format emphasizes more local and community events while pivoting the CWL Online schedule from weekly to monthly tournaments. The points awarded at each state’s monthly ranbats have been doubled, making them an even more important battleground for our championship hopefuls.
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.
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?
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.
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…
In the coming months we want to shine a spotlight on some of the hard-working, stylish and upcoming players making their name in CouchWarriors League.
This time, we spoke to SFV competitor Jason “2fast2fed” Barrett, who just broke through with his first CWL Online top 4 this month in a head-turning performance:
