October was an absolute crucible for our CouchWarriors League hopefuls, with major events studded across the calendar and a ton of points up for grabs.
With some of our more dominant leaders pulling ahead of the pack, a double points win at Dreamhack Melbourne would be one chance to reel them back in. Perhaps the last chance for our resident Victorians, since October’s Major action is all in Adelaide! As if the stage at Rod Laver Arena weren’t high-pressure enough…
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.
CouchWarriors League is starting off September with a bang, thanks to DreamHack Melbourne and its raft of CWL-ranking $1000 tournaments. The injection of some bonus leaderboard points into the system should keep things exciting as our top players race towards CouchWarriors CrossUp and the winter season finale.
For those who aren’t able to make it to Melbourne this weekend, never fear; there’s still all our regular ranbats and CWL Online events to shoot for! Here are the dates and sign-up links for all August’s CouchWarriors League events – both online and offline.
