CouchWarriors Expands Further Nationally with South Australia and New South Wales

After successful growth from Victoria into Queensland, Fighting Game Esports Events organisation brings in Adelaide and Sydney organisers under the CouchWarriors umbrella.

 

CouchWarriors has announced today it is broadening its brand to support esports events in the fighting game and Smash Bros communities of Adelaide and Smash Bros community in Sydney. 

The request from these scenes to join the banner comes after a successful expansion into Brisbane last year, which saw events grow to an average of 160 attendees each month, and launch a successful national major, Sunny Side Up, with over 450 attendees. 

Alongside, events in CouchWarriors home base in Melbourne also saw a big growth for the FGC. Over 1,500 unique competitors attended the national major, BAM (Battle Arena Melbourne) in May, and players across ANZ are participating in the BAM Path To EVO league, in which CouchWarriors sponsored three players to the largest worldwide tournament, EVO in Las Vegas.

Altogether, the Fighting Game esports scene is strong and healthy.

Now, Adelaide FGC and Smash, and Sydney Smash organisers will be working under the CouchWarriors banner to bring the winning formula to monthly events and add to the nationwide circuit of events.

Regular CouchWarriors events in Adelaide and Sydney will start with:

  • CouchWarriors SA “Cheese League” Monthly Ranking Battle
      • When: 3rd Sunday each month
      • Where: Level 5, Union House, Adelaide Uni
      • Next event: Sunday 17th Nov – Click here to Register

 

  • CouchWarriors NSW “Star Forge”: Sydney Smash Monthly
    • When: 4th Sunday each month
    • Where: 5 Broadway, Ultimo NSW 2007
    • Next event: Sunday 27th Oct- Click here to Register

Majors for Adelaide and Sydney join the Circuit

 

  • Phantom 2020: Sydney Smash/Splatoon Major

These events join BAM, Sunny Side Up and the FGC end of year event, CouchWarriors Crossup, which will be on December 14 at Bayview on the Park. Details here.

You can find all the events listed regularly on the CouchWarriors Facebook events page here, and announced on the Couchwarriors website.

July 10, 2020

Well, 6 months down and 6 to go. 2020 may have turned out to be an inauspicious year to launch our new CouchWarriors League, but just like any FGC great, we’ve adapted. Online events have kept the CWL leaderboards ticking over during the pandemic months, and we’ve even seen new players gain big opportunities from this unusual focus on netplay. Certainly for those who live outside of the main metro regions this season is looking like their best chance to make a tilt at national recognition! One important thing to remember when reading these standings. At the creation of CouchWarrio...

Welcome back, CouchWarriors family! It’s been a few months since we were forced into isolation by the COVID-19 pandemic. As tough as it has been to not get out to regular ranbats and weeklies, we have seen some great community efforts to stay connected and run online tournaments for any game which supports them. Chief among these online events has been the CouchWarriors League, which we launched with incredible timing just before the coronavirus news started to hit. What was intended as a national leaderboard for state ranbats and majors has shifted with the times, and become a weekly ...
