Gfinity Elite Series SFV Players at Battle Arena Melbourne 10.

The upcoming GFINITY Elite Series will feature a large selection of Street Fighter V players from the community. With BAM10 as the major fighting game event in the calendar year just finished, it’s a great opportunity to look at how these players finished up. How will this latest ranking of the top SFV players in the country play out when the teams face off at Elite Series in the coming weeks?  Their placement at BAM10 will be a good gauge!

The Chiefs main Squad

At the moment, it looks like Chiefs are in the box seat, with the only two Australian players to make top 8 against fierce local and international competition both in that team. In fact, Somniac, as top placer via tiebreak with Bksama, won a trip to Vegas as our EVO representative.

However, a few close calls in pools and previous tournaments suggests some upsets from the likes of ROF and TravisStyles are certainly possible.

Check out all of the players and their teams that came to BAM 10.

Twitch and CouchWarriors Announce ANZ Pathway to EVO World Championships

This past weekend CouchWarriors’ Battle Arena Melbourne (BAM10) reached its 10th Anniversary. ANZ’s largest open entry esports event, held May 18-20 at Melbourne Convention Centre, once again broke records with over 2,000 attendees. It was also the debut of a major partnership with Twitch TV to reward ANZ players and grow the fighting game esports scene.

 

Announced during BAM10, this will provide flights and accommodation for 3 players who reach the highest placement among Australian or New Zealand players at BAM. Also announced is an ongoing tournament points system which will lead to next year’s BAM11, in which players will once again have the opportunity to prove themselves and win a trip to EVO 2019.

More info from this Twitch Video

Having become a major international event with over 30 global pro players attending, the addition of a premium event reward just for ANZ players provides a clear goal for local players to strive for. In this year’s event, the top players from Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, and Super Smash Bros 4 WiiU were chosen.  These players came out on top:

 

  • Naveed “ChandNY” Iqbal  – Tekken 7
  • Xavier “Somniac” Nardella – Street Fighter V
  • Nick “Extra” McKenzie – Super Smash Bros 4 WiiU

 

The biggest tournament event in ANZ fighting game history, BAM10 grew again with over 2,000 attendees and over $40,000 in cash and prizes. The gaming convention and esports event featured global pro tour stops for Tekken World Tour as a Master Event, and Capcom Pro Tour as a Ranking Event. This alongside a huge lineup of national tournaments and convention activities including access to preview games, indiecade, Nintendo Game zone, PC LAN, Artist Alley and Cosplay.
