With next month’s Big Cheese 4 looming as a major shakeup of the CouchWarriors League ladder, September’s ranking events will be an important warmup and scouting opportunity for top players across our featured games.
The Tekken scene in particular will have a great chance to measure the form of interstate rivals in this month’s CWL Online bracket. We’re also excited to look outside our CWL featured games and put on several prize-supported tournaments for the Brawlhalla community!
That’s just a taste of the action on offer though – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of September’s #CWLeague events.
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:
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:
Starting the year off with a bang, we have teamed up with The Game Expo to bring you a huge FGC major this coming March! Featuring a large list of games and over $6000 in prize money, this will be an event all of you competitors out there won’t want to miss.
Date: March 11-12
Location: Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre – 1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf VIC 3006
Schedule: See tournament registration page
Prizes: Over $6000 (see list below for specific numbers)
In addition to our regular slate of ranking CouchWarriors League tournaments, September featured some of our biggest annual events all packed into one month. But the most intense experience was to be on the floor at the inaugural Dreamhack Melbourne, where 189 CWL competitors did battle in the middle of Rod Laver Arena!
Amid the thunderous noise from a gamut of different esports tournaments, we crowned Dreamhack champions for Street Fighter V, DNF Duel, Smash Ultimate and Guilty Gear: Strive. The weekend was capped off with a Tekken World Tour Prime Dojo tournament, which also doubled as a CWL ranking event in its own right. Stakes were high, with a $1000 prize pool on offer for each game, and the arena atmosphere made for a truly unique tournament.
After a massive month of competition at the highest level Australia has to offer, CouchWarriors capped our September calendar with an appearance at Crunchyroll Expo Aus 2022!
There were no CWL ranking points to claim this time, as we opened up the Super Arcade for some old-fashioned walk-up challenges. But there were still plenty of prizes for those in attendance – and best of all, the first chance to play sets of Street Fighter 6 on Australian shores!
DreamHack is bringing the world’s largest and most famous LAN event to Australian soil, and CouchWarriors will be right there in the thick of it!
Pride and prizes will be on the line all weekend long, with tournament brackets running for five of the biggest FGC titles. Enter for just $1 and walk out with $1000 – and the bragging rights of being a bonafide DreamHack champion.
If you’ve got your DreamHack tickets already, then sign up for these brackets on the start.gg page before the 1st of September. If you don’t – well, then you better get on and grab your pass quick so you can sign up. Or you can watch along all weekend on twitch.tv/couchwarriors!
From one major to another, and still going strong! It’s been an incredible couple of months for our community, with both BAM and Phantom putting on hugely successful and exciting tournaments.
But there’s still plenty on the schedule for 2022! Here are the dates and sign-up links for all August’s CouchWarriors League events – both online and offline. And don’t forget, Dreamhack Melbourne is coming up in just a few weeks – CouchWarriors will be running the fighting games section between September 2nd-4th!
About a month ago, we announced that the classic “BAM Bounties” contest would return at Battle Arena Melbourne 2022. Top players from each of the CouchWarriors League featured games will enter the major with a price on their heads! If you’re the first to best these players in their favorite game over the weekend, you can immediately cash in for a bonus prize. Sounds good, right?
Not so fast. These aren’t just random schmucks who lucked into the odd win; with months of bruising competition under their belts already in 2022, our CWL leaders have more than proven their credentials as champions of their chosen games. They’re some of the most exciting and experienced players in the Oceanic FGC!
So to make sure you’re prepared for BAM2022 (in less than 2 weeks!), let’s take a closer look at who you’ll be trying to take down…
