We now have the complete first month of CWL Online play for 2022 in the books, as the monthlies for Smash Ultimate and Guilty Gear: Strive rounded out February. Even at this early stage, the lack of offline ranbats means the results for CWL Online will be incredibly important to the seasonal points race.

Many eyes were locked on the stream to find out who would claim the first leaderboard points of the year – and an Astro Gaming A20 headset into the bargain.

A fierce new wave of competition has struck the Australian FGC, as the CouchWarriors League 2022 season is officially underway.

GG:Strive Joins CWL Online With First Interstate Showdown

When we write fighting game history, 2021 is going to go down as the Year of Gear. The bold presentation and fortuitous timing of Guilty Gear: Strive has brought the hard-rocking franchise from the fringe of the FGC into the mainstream. And the willingness of Arc System Works to remodel some aspects of the core system has invited many new Guilty Gear players to make Strive their entry point, mixing it up with anime veterans on more even footing. 

With all that momentum it was inevitable that GG:ST would make it onto the CouchWarriors League circuit as our newest featured title. Last month’s Battle Arena Nightclub was the first opportunity for players to pick up ranking points on the Strive leaderboard. But even that clash of Melbourne’s finest turned out to just be an appetizer for August’s CWL Online event – the first real chance to see who could stand supreme in this new game at the national level.
