Couch Warriors / BAM Path To EVO

CouchWarriors QLD Ranbats for November 2019 were held on Saturday the 2nd at George St Brisbane. 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. pahnda
  2. Dale
  3. 903|SwinGo

Another ranbat that showed the evenness of the QLD scene as Ervin-Jason “pahnda” Garanovic and Dale Roy took the top two spots. Their points here left them leading a pack of 6 QLD players between 26 and 22 points in the SFV Path to EVO standings. Unfortunately, the higher concentration of points in other states leaves them all well behind the leaders.

Tekken 7

  1. Rest
  2. jmkayz
  3. LetsTalkTekken|DrpPnts4Food

Chang “Rest” Seop Park returned this month to resume his dominance over not only the QLD Tekken scene, but the BAM Path to EVO points race. His undefeated run here will help him in a trans-tasman rivalry against last season’s winner Daniel “Kanga|wowzer” Cossington.

DragonBall FighterZ

  1. Mustella
  2. KHFC|Driver
  3. KHFC|SweetLeaves

KHFC’s best were once again denied by Mustella, who extended his winning streak in DragonBall by another month. KHFC|Driver couldn’t get the job done again this month despite getting two shots at the champ. Maybe the final ranbat of 2019 will be his time?

Samurai Shodown

  1. Jer
  2. :D?|Sleepmode
  3. Necromancy Black

“Jer K” has made it the ranbat podium for SamSho a few times before, but this month there was no holding him back. Sleepmode is another player consistently making top 4 at these events – perhaps the near-miss will see his name be the next to rise to the very top.

Smash Melee

  1. Auro
  2. LoFT|Manacloud
  3. Brad

A powerful name reappeared in the finals this month as Sam “Auro” White made a huge run to 1st place. Auro’s dominance was challenged only by LoFT|Manacloud, but that turned out to be a fierce contest in itself as the two finished the night 7-5 in games across 3 sets

Smash Ultimate

  1. QLD|Ari
  2. 411|Ben Gold
  3. QLD|Shitashi

We had seen something of a curse develop around the winners bracket over the last few months, with consistent bracket reset wins in the Smash Ultimate finals. QLD|Ari holding off Ben “411|Ben Gold” Gold shattered that hoodoo and made it 2 wins in 3 months, leaving him 7th in the BAM Path to EVO rankings.

Smash Ultimate Doubles

  1. 411|Ben Gold / schooner
  2. QLD|Shitashi / QLD|Ari
  3. Shadrew / Negima

Another month, another Ben Gold doubles win! This time he brought Schooner along for the ride, and they cruised through the bracket only dropping a single game to the team of Kwaksy and KaiDASH in Winners Quarters.

Ultra Street Fighter IV

  1. pahnda
  2. Angus
  3. Jack Mason

pahnda successfully achieved the Street Fighter double header, sweeping this tournament in addition to claiming top points in SFV!


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

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...

The Dark Alliance series holds a special place in people’s hearts as one of the best ways console fans of Dungeons & Dragons could experience the Baldur’s Gate and Forgotten Realms settings without playing the Baldur’s Gate PC RPGs. Nowadays, with those games on console and D&D more popular than ever, Dark Alliance is coming back in 2020 with a familiar setting, famous characters and an all-new name –  Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance. Announced at The Game Awards, D&D: Dark Alliance is described by its developer, Tuque Games, as a spiritual successor to the Baldur&...

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...
