Baxter at BAM, the first ANZ Champion in Dragon Ball FighterZ

The biggest fighting game release this year has been Dragon Ball FighterZ! Taking the community by storm, DBFZ has been an immediate hit as a tournament title. The debut major for DBFZ in Australia, BAM10, saw 122 entrants, as VSDS Baxter took home the first championship in a thrilling final.

Now, CouchWarriors is excited to announce we will be hosting a Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Saga Event – one of only seven in the world.  Find out more about Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour here https://dbfzworldtour.com/

This major global fighting game event will take place at our Ranking Battle Season finals, and because it’s a special occasion, we are creating a new event.  CouchWarriors Crossup.

CouchWarriors Crossup will take place over two days, December 15-16, 2018. We will have more announcements around this new major event in the fighting game and esports calendar in the weeks to come.

This event is sure to attract the greatest players from around the world – expect to see top players from across Japan and South East Asia and perhaps even further afield, to battle against our local champions to claim the seventh Dragon Ball and a direct qualification into the World Finals in January.

That’s right, the winner of the event gets a free trip to the DBFZWT Finals! Alongside the incredible opportunity to go to World Finals, there is a $5,000 Prize Pool for Dragon Ball FighterZ
