Events Calendar: October 2023
By far the biggest month on the back half of our 2023 calendar, October brings us two massive spectacles across its first two weekends. First up, CouchWarriors will once again be representing the FGC at PAX Australia, running tournaments and friendlies out of the console gaming area all weekend!
While PAX AUS isn’t a CWL ranking event, our other marquee event will absolutely make an impact on our seasonal leaderboards. The Big Cheese 4 is the most important opportunity for our elite players since Battle Arena Melbourne – and as always, the chance to redefine the state vs. state pecking order will be a strong motivator.
The logjam of special events means that our regular ranbat schedule is subject to change – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of September’s #CWLeague events.
Remember, event dates are also available from the front page in our sidebar event tracker – including where to join our community-run CWL-ranked online weeklies! We want to make sure you’re always ready for the next battle.
