#BAMThrowback – Remembering Our Best Moments

2020 was meant to be an incredible year for our FGC, and specifically for Battle Arena Melbourne. BAM12 had an impressive list of World Tour tournaments to draw top internationals, great sponsors, the CouchWarriors League finale and increasing momentum from years of successful “big BAMs” at the MEC, ready to break all records and make news worldwide. The event is only postponed, not cancelled, so we can still look forward to our annual calendar highlight. But it’s painful to be set back after so much hard work, by a force well outside anybody’s control.

With the originally planned event dates coming and going last weekend, it would have been easy to get sucked into further disappointment. Instead, CouchWarriors took the chance to launch the #BAMThrowback hashtag, asking our community to throw up their best memories and photos from years of BAM past.

Street Fighter V

  1. DS|Somniac
  2. ORDER|ROF
  3. Rupps

I think I have to apologize to Christian “ORDER|ROF” Dedalija for jinxing him last month. No sooner did I boast about his seeming invincibility in SFV than Xavier “DS|Somniac” Nardella rose to the challenge and brought the endboss down. Somniac’s run was even more impressive as he had to recover from a round 2 loss to John “ZEDDD” Le, but the veteran rallied and eventually overwhelmed ROF 6 games to 2 across two grand final sets.

  1. ORDER|ROF
  2. syo
  3. ZEDDD

Whatever else can be said about Christian “ORDER|ROF” Dedalija, he at least makes it easy for me doing these recaps – I can just leave his tag at the top of the standings every month. His reign of dominance stretching back to October overshadows a big run from multi-game threat John “ZEDDD” Le to claim another podium finish.

Turns out, he could.

  1. Willing Foe
  2. Antaresxv
  3. Happy

Marco “Antaresxv” Encina wasn’t been able to make a lot of ranbats over the back half of 2019 – but whenever he does show up he shows he hasn’t lost his edge. He was able to start the year off right with a strong second place here, although he couldn’t get past Wade “WillingFoe” Ballantyne who finished on top, undefeated.
