Community: The Australian FGC Episode 09 – Colin “Colonov” Tan
The last episode filmed from the Queensland major Buttonsmash features Australia’s best King of Fighters XIII player – Colin “Colonov” Tan. A long-time top player in Queensland in multiple games, Colonov had an unbroken streak of KOFXIII titles in local majors for almost eighteen months – until Adelaide’s Falco broke his streak at Buttonsmash. Colin has done so much for the Australian KOF scene and has brought up so many new KOF top players, such as Sam Baxter from Brisbane who got 2nd place in KOF at Buttonsmash.
Colin owns the House of Ham, a gamerhouse which is the training and social hub of the Queensland top player circle, and is also a proficient streamer, streaming his show Beyond the Hype and local matches/sets. In this episode we talk about growing the Queensland scene, Colin’s history with KOF and fighting games, the top player mentality, the social side of fighting games, relationship advice and much more. Hope you guys like the episode, and I hope to see you all this weekend at BAM6 in Melbourne!
