CouchWarriors AUSFGC Primer #1: Dragon Ball FighterZ

Ever get so emotional in a match you felt like powering up? Hype is the sign of a great fighting game, and few games can get players on their feet – and screaming – like Dragon Ball FighterZ

2018 was a huge year for the game culminating in the Dragon Ball FighterZ Saga event at CouchWarriors Crossup. Before the World Finals at the end of January, lets take a look at what the game is all about, then learn about the top players, and how to get into the local scene.

CCH- December 17 and 2017 dates!

CCH

Hi guys, it’s the last CCH of the year. I will not be there so Spoony will run it in my absence- big thanks to Daniel Finegan aka Spoony.

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/237606793334637/

I’ve updated the dates with the full 2017 year, we will no longer operate on a fortnightly schedule, but instead be on the 2nd and 4th week of every month. This is to avoid clashes with the CouchWarriors ranbat which is on the 3rd week of every month and Chris Ho’s tournaments which will be on the 1st week of every month.

I know this year we’ve had much more inconsistency than usual with different venues and startup times and clashes with ranbats and I’m sorry about all that- but this year thanks to the Library ironing out its booking system, we’re rock solid twice a month at 3PM at the Collingwood Library. Here’s to a good 2017 and happy holidays to all the FGC.


Date: Saturday, December 17
Time: 3pm till late
Location: 11 Stanton St, Abbotsford. (Collingwood Library, right next to the Collingwood train station)
Entry Fee: $4 venue fee; anybody that brings either a monitor/console/laptop gets in for free.
Facebook Event Page here.
BYO: screens, consoles and sticks are all appreciated, even if they go unused. The more the merrier.

Pyro’s CCH KOFXIV league: The Prologue

-Swiss format FT3
-Starts at 4PM
-Two tiers T1 and T2

T1 Signup: http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/o4iW8QmbtG
T2 Signup: http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/QafTTU4XIA

Tier 1 is your competitively driven players or veteran players, expect to be playing people that know what they’re doing and are looking to improve even more so. Tier 2 is your new to King of Fighters or I’ve only played it a handful of times. Expect that these players would be looking to get into the game and maybe one day make it to Tier 1. You may choose your own tier, if you think you’re a Tier 1 player, then enter T1 otherwise enter T2. If you’re stomping T2, you may be moved to T1.

Scoring: If you win your set 3-2, you’ll be awarded 3 points. If you’re the loser in this situtation, you’ll only earn 2 points. Effectively you accumulate score over how many games you win regardless of the overall set victory, so consistent attendance will help you here.

End of Season: There will be a prize for the highest number of points for each division, but there may be other prizes to be won should you show vast improvement or community spirit so don’t be discouraged from playing KOFXIV. Pyro will update you on exactly what we’re going to do as soon as he has a good idea.
