cw_ranbat_feb_2016

Hi guys, our February ranbat will also serve as an official launch tournament for Street Fighter V. We anticipate high demand and have chosen to hold this event at CQ Functions, the same location in the heart of the CBD which we use to host BAM.

Since we expect that around 200 players will attend this ranbat just for Smash Bros. alone, to avoid long queues on the day, get yourself into the bracket early, and to generally make life easier for your friendly neighbourhood tournament organiser you can register online with prepayments.

Pre-reg is open until Thursday February 18th. For all other details concerning this month’s ranbat, visit the official event page.

Street Fighter V at CouchWarriors Coverage

With our first chance to play SFV at CouchWarriors Ranbat for August last weekend, many in the community had their first hands on with the game.  Here are a couple of the photos from our Facebook page on the day.  Read on for impressions and video!

Getting the chance to play on on one with live opponents in the gamescom build of the game was a great chance for community to get a feel for the upcoming game.  The reactions have been generally very positive, and players are looking forward to the game.

CouchWarriors member and avid youtuber, Kevin “Burnout” Kim did a great job at pulling together some analysis of changes between the online beta version, which received coverage on Shoryuken.com

Check out the videos below and look for more community impressions and video from the event soon!

PLAY STREET FIGHTER V AT RANKING BATTLE AUGUST 22!

Get Ready to RISEUP – we will have a special preview of STREET FIGHTER V at this month’s Ranking Battle event.SF5 Preview

There will be two stations available for players to get a hands on experience in two player offline matches.  It will be the gamescom build, so try Ken and Necalli!

We will be running some house rules to move people through the preview with three matches on, then move to next players for most of the time.  We will also schedule some exhibitions with top players later in the day.
