Announcing the CouchWarriors schedule of events for 2015! We had a brilliant 2014 with fantastic ranking battle attendances each month, a gangbusters national event in BAM6. We also added Meet N Mash Friday weeklies in the city and hosted tournaments at events like CHAOZ, ANIMAGA and of course PAX AUSTRALIA.
We’re proud to be supporting the fighting game community and looking forward to a fun fighting game filled 2015! We hope to see you at one of these events to compete, learn to play or just have some great sets in your favourite games.
RANKING BATTLES – MONTHLY TOURNAMENTS
We can confirm the first SIX MONTHS of 2015 tournament dates have been booked, on a Saturday every month at our regular Brunswick hall venue just off Sydney road, next to convenient train and tram transport and plenty of parking.
The Melbourne community major event, and one of Australia’s main National tournaments, BAM returns. It will once again
be at the CQ Functions Room on Queen and Collins st, Melbourne. We’ve got big plans to entertain the whole community, plus it’s a big year for fighters
with new releases.

Community help and volunteering:
We’re all volunteers and always appreciate help from people who want to contribute, which in turn helps the whole community. Want to take part and help keep these great events running?
Volunteers are always welcome and needed, from an extra pair of hands transporting or unpacking gear at ranking battles to running brackets and spreading the word
about each event.
Just bringing your friends to play your favourite game is a big help!

It’s the biggest gaming event of the year – and CouchWarriors is proud to be providing the Fighting Game Tournaments services for PAX Australia this coming weekend!
In the Console Tournament area we will have a full suite of consoles set with a library of fighters to play. Join us for one of the many tournaments each day, or come by and practice. We’ll even be providing time for Learn To Play, so if you want to dip your toes into the playing fighters at their best – side by side with other people – now’s your chance.
Tournaments! We have a small set rotating roster of excellent tournament games to play, plus a range of additional games to play in casuals. With some games being played in tournaments more than once over the weekend, we’re looking forward to a Best of the Best playoff each day and Sunday.
You can also challenge your friends with our friendly Winners Stays – Limit of 3 Wins rules for all games.
