Events Calendar – March 2024

A huge welcome back to all world warriors, local legends and online grinders joining us for CouchWarriors League 2024! The CWL is even bigger and better this summer season, tracking results from all across Australia before we ultimately crown our national champions at Battle Arena Melbourne in June.

This month will see a full schedule of ranbats, hosting fierce competition in every state, as well as some extra opportunities to pick up points through the RMIT Game Day and (at least for the Guilty Gear crowd) our monthly CWL Online showdown!

Events Calendar – December 2023

It’s that very special time of year again, one we’ve all been looking forward to for months. A chance to celebrate with friends and loved ones, to look back on the year’s efforts, and then to top it all off with a huge day of fighting game tournaments. That’s right, CouchWarriors Crossup returns in a new one-day format to close out 2023!

This event will also be the CouchWarriors League Winter Season Finale, where our best players land their final blows in the struggle for leaderboard supremacy. There will also be plenty of side-game tournaments, the launch of a Guilty Gear card game, and the CW Community Awards presentation! Read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of December’s #CWLeague events.

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.

Events Calendar: September 2023

With next month’s Big Cheese 4 looming as a major shakeup of the CouchWarriors League ladder, September’s ranking events will be an important warmup and scouting opportunity for top players across our featured games.

The Tekken scene in particular will have a great chance to measure the form of interstate rivals in this month’s CWL Online bracket. We’re also excited to look outside our CWL featured games and put on several┬áprize-supported tournaments for the Brawlhalla community!
That’s just a taste of the action on offer though – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of September’s #CWLeague events.

Events Calendar: August 2023

August looks to be an intriguing month around the CouchWarriors League, as many players return from a post-BAM hiatus to once again focus on tournament competition. The Street Fighter 6 metagame continues to mature, and barring significant patches this month’s ranbats should tell us a lot about who currently has a claim to being Australia’s best player.

Meanwhile, this month’s CWL Online bracket offers the Smash scene as a chance to scout interstate matchups ahead of the Big Cheese major – as well as a big chunk of points. That’s just a taste of the action on offer though – read on for the dates and sign-up links for all of August’s #CWLeague events.

Queensland Ranbats Are Back In Business!

If you’re a regular visitor to this site, chances are that you’ve seen this notice posted somewhere:

Excerpt from a monthly schedule post explaining that the Queensland ranbats have been cancelled indefinitely.

It’s been a tough stretch for the north-most arm of our FGC since the initial loss of their ranbat venue in March 2022. Over a year has now passed since the last official CWQLD offline event.

But don’t worry, the end is now in sight: the Queensland Ranbat is now set to make a triumphant return before the end of the month!

CouchWarriors Crossup is Upon Us!

We’re just days away from the sensational last event of CouchWarriors League 2022, and the last Australian major of the year. CouchWarriors Crossup returns to Melbourne this weekend, with a bigger venue and bigger selection of fighting games to cap off another year’s competition. That includes the highlight game from last CWC, DragonBall FighterZ – and the stakes will be high, as we are once again a DBFZ World Tour Power Event.

CWL Results & Roundup for October

October’s events were the finish line of our CouchWarriors League points race, and with how fierce the competition has been this year that meant a ton more pressure on any leaderboard hopefuls.

CouchWarriors Crossup still looms as the season finale. But the points championship for each game is still a big prize – and for players who can’t travel to that event in person, the biggest one. With one more chance at the 2022 crown, who among them would muster the strength to seize it?
