Couch Warriors / BAM Path To EVO

The biggest fighting game tournament in the world is this weekend! EVO 2019 in Las Vegas will draw players from across the globe, including players from Australia and New Zealand. Read on to follow who will be going and the event schedule.

Proudly sponsored by CouchWarriors’ BAM Path To EVO program, three players achieved ANZ champion status at BAM11 this year. As a result their flights and accommodation is taken care of and they have arrived to make their mark at EVO!

Super Smash Bros Smash Ultimate Winner: Bradley Defective Dagger Kun 

Defective Dagger defeated previous Smash Ultimate champion Extra, a changing of the guard moment

Tekken winner: Daniel “Wowzer” Collington 

Wowzer in Tekken is a young player from NZ who in his first major tournament, fought his way through the ANZ special knockout event to win.

Street Fighter V winner: Travis Styles

 

Travis is a top SFV player but couldn’t attend the eastern states events to earn points. He claimed his spot as the top player in the main BAM tournament itself and won through.

There are many more great ANZ players at EVO so keep an eye on the CouchWarriors and FGC twitter accounts, we’ll be sharing their posts as we see them!

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!

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 ...
