We continue the exhilarating race to the finish in this month’s CouchWarriors League schedule, with one more big event queued up to help ambitious players climb the leaderboards: Big Cheese 3.
This one matters most for our South Australian hopefuls, with a hometown Major to catch them up on all the points others have reaped from BAM 2022 and Dreamhack Melbourne. But there’s still regular ranbats and CWL Online monthlies running elsewhere, plus the Champions’ Challenge at PAX Aus – not a ranked event, but there will be sponsored prizes plus the new test build of Street Fighter 6!
Here are the dates and sign-up links for all October’s CouchWarriors League events – both online and offline.
Another year at PAXAus for another year of fighting games! We have some exciting stuff in store this year, with early access to the Tokyo Game Show demo of Dead or Alive 6 thanks to the folks at Koei Tecmo Games.
Also a first for us this PAXAus, we’ll be hosting a panel on Saturday to showcase the Console Tournament finals for Dragonball FighterZ and Super Smash Bros 4! Plus, a DOA6 exhibition and some cool surprises and announcements!
Now you can marvel in the comfort of a theatre while the best players at PAX go at it live on stage. Read below for more details.
