August looks to be an intriguing month around the CouchWarriors League, as many players return from a post-BAM hiatus to once again focus on tournament competition.The Street Fighter 6 metagame continues to mature, and barring significant patches this month’s ranbats should tell us a lot about who currently has a claim to being Australia’s best player.
Meanwhile, this month’s CWL Online bracket offers the Smash scene as a chance to scout interstate matchups ahead of the Big Cheese major – as well as a big chunk of points. That’s just a taste of the action on offer though – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of August’s #CWLeague events.
Another big year of Battle Arena Melbourne is in the books, and that means it’s time to celebrate our new Major champions!
#BAM13 packed 1018 Unique attendees into full halls at Moonee Valley Racecourse, with over 40 different fighting games on display across 7 different tournament stages! Our wonderful TOs worked hard to fit the maximum variety of tournaments into a three day event – and the result is that we can now add the following names to the honour roll of Battle Arena Melbourne top finishes!
It’s barely more than a month until the latest and greatest incarnation of Battle Arena Melbourne – #BAM13.
BAM is Australia’s biggest FGC event of the year, so naturally it also needs to show off the biggest range of different fighting games. After all, if you’re gonna find enough people anywhere to fill a bracket for your favourite niche fighter, it’s going to be at BAM!
To round out our lineup, here is our final game announcement for #BAM13!
More crowd-pleasing announcements were deployed last week to keep the #BAM13 hype train cruising smoothly towards June 9th. For starters, here’s a swag of newly-confirmed games which will receive tournament support at Australia’s biggest FGC event:
