Couch Warriors / BAM Path To EVO

The second edition of CouchWarriors Crossup, our end-of-year Mini-Major, was held December 14th at Bayview on the Park in Melbourne. Here’s a summary of the results in every game and how the top matches turned out. A complete listing of match results and brackets for each game can be viewed on Smash.gg here.

CWC2 marked the finale for Season 2 of the BAM Path to EVO! The top ranked players in each of Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat 11 and Smash Ultimate received sponsored flights to the event to compete. The final standings can be viewed here. Note that NZ players Daniel “Kanga|Wowzer” Cossington (Tekken) and Reagan “S-NET|GhostChips” Kelly (SFV) finished on top in their respective games, but declined the prize.

Street Fighter V

  2. DS|Somniac
  3. GG|Rumours

Christian “ORDER|ROF” Dedalija has been absolutely unstoppable in the last few months of Street Fighter competition, and capped the year off with a dominant run here. Despite only earning points from three events for the BPTE season, he was able to take down the season champ Yuvin “GG|Rumours” Manadeniya when it mattered most.

Tekken 7

  1. Kanga|Chand NY
  2. DS|dANiel
  3. Mr-Kojeski

With top BPTE points-getters Wowzer and Chang Seop “Rest” Park nowhere to be seen in top 8, the route to victory looked clear for Season 1 champion Naveed “Kanga|Chand NY” Iqbal.

Mortal Kombat 11

  1. DS|Waz
  2. GG|Gilbagz
  3. ODT|GooGie

Tasman “DS|Waz” Stoker bounced back from a heartbreaking finish at Interkontinental Kombat to prove he’s still the king at home, finishing CWC as the only BPTE points champion to go on and win in their game.

DragonBall FighterZ

  1. KHFC|Agent17805
  2. ZEDD
  3. KHFC|Novix

John “ZEDD” Le mustered up an incredible charge through Losers in DBFZ, making it all the way back to reset the bracket in a tight Grand Finals set against online stalwart Ray “KHFC|Agent17805” Usanto. But after an incredibly tight set where each player won the same amount of games it was the popular “Agent Numbers” who came out the winner.

Soul Calibur VI

  1. Glen
  2. DaBeast
  3. JEL

Samurai Shodown

  1. DS|Somniac
  2. Rupps
  3. Tomo009

Xavier “DS|Somniac” Nardella has taken out the last few CW VIC ranbats in SamSho showing rock-solid fundamentals for the game – so it was no surprise to see him take out this bracket to back up a solid 2nd place finish in SFV.

Dead or Alive 6

  1. CW|Berzerk
  2. Homu|Javi
  3. TRIxFLOOFY|Borgieman

“Rumours of collusion swirl as CouchWarriors staff sweep major tournament.”

Tekken 7 3v3s

  1. iNf|Bboy Phoenix / DS|dANiel / DaBeast
  2. FAM|Gun_Mo / Antman / Zyzz
  3. Kanga|Chand NY / DS|MM|dreadtech / Kanga|Temeflaps

Daniel “DS|dANiel” Ng ended up getting revenge on Chand NY for his grand finals defeat in the singles as the “Body Squad” crushed the Kanga boys en route to victory in this team event.

Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2

  1. Feri
  2. ashxu
  3. EMO|Forte

Gutu “Feri” Hassan was flexing on the anime scene this weekend, smashing the win in Xrd and following up with a strong 3rd place in BlazBlue.


  1. Silent
  2. DONG|ASingleSnail
  3. Frank

A lot of challengers have made it onto the podium for UNIST over the last few months, but so far nobody can topple Silent.


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

BlazBlue: Central Fiction

  1. Morpher
  2. Homu|Javi
  3. Feri

Huge shoutouts to Javi, who entered four different events at CWC to come up with 5th, 3rd, 2nd and 2nd! A true renaissance man of the FGC.

Smash Ultimate

  1. Kanga|Ghost
  2. Kanga|Jdizzle
  3. DS|Extra

There had been a lot of anticipation around this event and the chance we would see the elite of Victoria go head-to-head for the first time in a while at CW events. In the end, Nick “DS|Extra” McKenzie fell to the one-two punch of Kanga Esports, with Josh “Kanga|Ghost” Francis looking especially clean in an impeccable winners side run. BPTE points leader and BAM11 champion Ben “411|Ben Gold” Gold finished 17th after a shock loss in pools to Little Mac specialist Daniel “OnePhoAll” Tran.

Smash Melee

  1. DS|Sora
  2. FURY|Fess
  3. BBB|prolificjuice

Josh “DS|Sora” Lyras cemented himself as the most valuable signing of 2019 as he improbably triumphed in both the singles and doubles events for Melee! We’ll see if this run continues into 2020.

Ultimate Doubles

  1. Kanga|Jdizzle / ATH|DD
  2. DS|Extra / R!OT|Dome|Duon
  3. OnePhoAll / Aya  &  411|Ben Gold / SadHour

True love finds a way.

Melee Doubles

  1. DS|Sora / 411|Ben Gold
  2. Ryzuul / Zhye
  3. Fess / Splice

Rivals of Aether

  1. Ryzuul
  2. S7G|SNC
  3. OSU

Jacob “Ryzuul” Biziuk continues to establish himself as another of our true multi-game talents with strong placeings across five events.

Splatoon 2

  1. Team Nex
  2. Gamers @ Work
  3. Team Magey

Phew, that’s a lot of games! For a so-called “mini-major”, CWC2019 felt like a very worthy celebration of the FGC and featured a chunk of Australia’s top talent – meaning all the more congratulations are in order for our winners!

Stay tuned for more detailed coverage of this great event and related news!

For the fifth year running, The Game Awards has transpired to celebrate the year that was. And like years past, it was yet another forgettable show that seemingly felt worse than in years past. There were highs for sure, but they were brought crashing down by some painful lows. Though the question I ask myself every time The Game Awards happens is just who exactly is this show for? The Game Awards isn’t the sole awards ceremony for the video game industry, but it’s by far the biggest and most well known. It’s been described as “The Oscars of Gaming” by the New York Times, and it’s...

There’s always a major announcement or three at The Game Awards, but Microsoft may have upped the ante with a full-on system reveal. The console previously known as Project Scarlett is now officially called the Xbox System X, and we got a look at its unusual design. Microsoft is still touting this as the most powerful console they’ve ever built, and even gave a quick look at its controller. It looks similar enough to the Xbox One controller, but with the much-needed and welcomed addition of a Share button. No further details about the console were revealed, except that it’ll...
