October 22, 2019

Couch Warriors / Ranking Battle

CouchWarriors VIC FGC Ranbats for October 2019 were held on Saturday the 5th at Davies St in Brunswick. Here’s a summary of the results in every game and how the top matches played out. A complete listing of match results and brackets for each game can be viewed on Smash.gg here.

Results for SFV, MK11, Tekken 7, and Smash U count towards the standings for the BAM Path To EVO series for that game, which can be viewed here.

Street Fighter V

  1. ORDER|ROF
  2. DS|Somniac
  3. Schenkhan

Christian “ORDER|ROF” Dedalija may have barely a quarter of the BAM Path to EVO points that Xavier “DS|Somniac” Nardella can boast, but he was on a mission to change that this weekend. ROF blitzed the field and bopped Somniac twice along the way, sending a clear message to his VIC rival.

Tekken 7

  1. Kanga|ChandNY
  2. Chipzeeh
  3. AFriendlyTree

Naveed “ChandNY” Iqbal is among the very best Australian TEKKEN competitors ever, and proved that again here with a crushing clean sweep of the tournament. As he currently sits in a tight pack of players on the BAM Path to EVO ladder, the points from this win will be very valuable for his final rank.

Mortal Kombat 11

  1. Victrix|Castiel
  2. ODT|GooGie
  3. SC17|Souls Clue

Blake “Victrix|Castiel” Asquith bounced back from a disappointing early exit at last weekend’s Total Kombat top 8 by crushing this ranbat. Beating Edison “ODT|GooGie” Nguyen twice was also a reversal of their matchup at the QLD ranbat this month. No doubt the rivalry will continue so long as MK11 is part of our tournament lineup – but who will prove the stronger Kombatant?

Samurai Shodown

  1. DS|Somniac
  2. Rupps
  3. Humzoid0909

SamSho has consistently rewarded players with Street Fighter experience at our ranbats, and Xavier “DS|Somniac” Nardella continued that trend as he forced the competition to #EmbraceDeath.

DragonBall FighterZ

  1. KHFC|Agent17805
  2. Humzoid0909
  3. Nolbie

Ray “Agent17805” Usanto continued the KHFC squad’s cross-state dominance over DragonBall Fighterz with a big win over Humzoid0909. The latter also deserves credit for twin podium performances, here and in SamSho.

Soul Calibur VI

  1. Florinxfox
  2. JEL
  3. TRIxFLOOFY|Borgieman

Jonathan “Florinxfox” Iliareizis had a very clean showing in a small but powerful field, going undefeated on the day. Aaron “TRIxFLOOFY|Borgieman” Borg managed to make 3rd here despite the draining effort of running – and placing in – tournaments all PAX weekend!

Dead or Alive 6

  1. CW|Berzerk
  2. Homu|Javi
  3. Frank

CouchWarriors’ own Daniel “CW|Berzerk” Chlebowczyk proved he still has the touch, taking the DOA6 tournament! But he had to do it the hard way, busting out a pocket Christie pick on the way to a reset win in Grand Finals.

GGXRD Rev 2

  1. Feri
  2. EMO|Forte
  3. Homu|Javi

This ranbat saw a great grindy battle between Feri and Forte, played over several matches. Feri beat Forte in Winners Final 2-1, Forte bounced back in a 2-1 Losers Final win to then reset the Grand Final 2-1. The gas ran out there sadly as Feri won the reset in another 2-0, but it made for some great tension in the moment. Shoutout to ashxu, who was knocked out in Losers Quarters but only lost to 2nd-placed Forte and 3rd-placed Javi – both tight 1-2 sets.

UNIST

  1. Silent
  2. ragkyo
  3. lucia

Credit to the finalists but the highlight here was Lucia running the entire top 8 from Losers side, without dropping a set until eventually being knocked out at 3rd by ragkyo. Massive.

BBTAG

  1. ragkyo
  2. Homu|Javi
  3. Arty Blazy

Homu|Javi secured a hattrick of big finishes for this ranbat, scrapping to 2nd place here. Eventual winner ragkyo was also coming from a 2nd place in UNIST, as befits a crossover game like BBTAG.

 

Congratulations to all of our top-placed competitors from October! You can find details of future ranbat events on the CouchWarriors Facebook page.

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.

Chief among these online events has been the CouchWarriors League, which we launched with incredible timing just before the coronavirus news started to hit.
