Wade “Willing Foe” Ballantyne made a big run after being 2-0’d in Winners Quarters. Not only did he avenge his upper bracket loss in the Losers Final against Michael “GodlyEffect” Wright, but he then whitewashed Kim “Happy” Nguyen in Grands to make it back-to-back ranbat wins.
Fluid, exciting, technical and beautiful, the Tekken franchise has been among the strongest in the FGC since Tekken 2 & 3 set the benchmark for 3D fighters back on the Playstation. Australian players have a proud history stretching back nearly as far, and with Tekken 7 the size and strength of the scene is at its peak. A wide range of strong locals offer a great starting point for anyone who wants to prove themselves in the King of Iron Fist Tournament!
Ever get so emotional in a match you felt like powering up? Hype is the sign of a great fighting game, and few games can get players on their feet – and screaming – like Dragon Ball FighterZ.
2018 was a huge year for the game culminating in the Dragon Ball FighterZ Saga event at CouchWarriors Crossup. Before the World Finals at the end of January, lets take a look at what the game is all about, then learn about the top players, and how to get into the local scene.
