Couch Warriors / Ranking Battle

CouchWarriors QLD Ranbats for October 2019 were held on Saturday the 5th 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. Willing Foe
  2. Happy
  3. GodlyEffect

Wade “Willing Foe” Ballantyne made a big run after being 2-0’d in Winners Quarters. Not only did he avenge his upper bracket loss in the Losers Final against Michael “GodlyEffect” Wright, but he then whitewashed Kim “Happy” Nguyen in Grands to make it back-to-back ranbat wins.

Tekken 7

  1. Harlem
  2. tk|jaBBu
  3. GRU|Yiggs

Without super-ringer Rest present to upset things this month, “Harlem” resumed dominance over the QLD Tekken scene, winning undefeated. The pecking order was clearly established – 2nd placed Gabe “tk|jaBBu” Najarro was defeated only by Harlem, while 3rd place getter Tom “GRU|Yiggs” Ho had his only losses against jaBBu.

DragonBall FighterZ

  1. Mustella
  2. KHFC|Driver
  3. NQUAD1Zero

“Mustella” gave us another repeat champion by winning DBFZ undefeated. “KHFC|Driver” continued the DBFZ dominance of the KHFC crew by improving on last month’s 5th place to reach 2nd. Losing only to Mustella, he came close to an upset in Winners Finals going down 2 games to 3.

Mortal Kombat 11

  1. ODT|GooGie
  2. Victrix|Castiel
  3. R!OT|SolidSnake

With qualification to the Total Kombat tournament at PAX on the line, the big guns were out this month. Edison “ODT|GooGie” Nguyen made good on his favourite status by closing out rival Blake “Victrix|Castiel” Asquith to secure his place on the Melbourne stage this weekend.

Samurai Shodown

  1. GodlyEffect
  2. Destiny74
  3. AMDG

GodlyEffect backed up a podium finish in SFV by smashing the SamSho bracket, after making 5th place last month. Only Benjamin “Destiny74” Jakabfy was able to take games off the champion, cementing the strong crossover presence of SFV players in this game.

Smash Melee

  1. smopup
  2. XP2000
  3. Niko

Ron “XP2000” W. got revenge on Brandon “Brad” Fiedler, who held him to 2nd last month, only to be bridesmaid again! This time it was Gerard “smopup” Salonen who had XP2000’s number, beating him in Winners Finals and again in Grands.

Smash Ultimate

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

Ben “411|Ben Gold” Gold, drawing power from his namesake crocodile, strung together 4 losers bracket wins to reach Losers Finals. He was only just brought down in a nailbiting 3-2 set by Andrew “Shadrew” Isokangas, who then cruised to a 6-0 grand final reset win over Chris “QLD|Shitashi” Goold.

Smash Ultimate Doubles

  1. 411|Ben Gold / SadHour
  2. Shadrew / Negima
  3. 411|Flex / 411|Crimson

Reigning BAM Singles champion Ben Gold and Finn “SadHour” O’Brien were untroubled as they repeated their victory from the last ranbat. This time they didn’t even drop a set. Shadrew improved his podium placing from last month by changing partners, reaching 2nd place alongside “Negima”. Meanwhile Ethan “Umbrella” Haslem, who partnered with Shadrew for 3rd in September, slipped to 4th place here.

Fantasy Strike

  1. Kwaksy
  2. KaiDASH
  3. WiFi|Exist

The recently-released back-to-basics 2D fighter from David Sirlin found some fans at this month’s ranbat, with Kwaksy proving the king of fundamentals.

Ultra Street Fighter IV

  1. Corey Mason
  2. elguso
  3. b2w|ShroomyD

A small throwback tournament for Ultra Street Fighter IV gave those sick of SFV a chance to reminisce about the good old days of 2009. Is this the start of a revival for this “classic” SF title? We’ll find out next month.

 

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

 



September 21, 2020

The first fortnight of September has kicked off the endgame for CouchWarriors League 2020, with the national FGC organiser announcing that the remaining events on its tournament calendar would award double the normal ranking points to top 8 finishers!  This change goes some way to addressing the unexpectedly low number of points available this season after COVID forced a switch to monthly online events. Now you can imagine a chance for almost anyone to make a late run at top 16 – the cutoff point for invitation to the $2000 season finale event! The new points bonus looks to be most im...

August 30, 2020

Last Saturday’s CouchWarriors League event drew 110 entrants for Smash Ultimate – the first turnout of that size since May. Despite the packed field, this month turned out to be just another chapter in the fast-solidifying dominance of two players who have owned these online ranbats – as they finally begin to see that consistency pay off on the leaderboard.   Congrats @SebPro101 for a huge climb, reset bracket & takes final over @Dura_SSB. Seb wins $50 Steam voucher on us + full league points. Thanks all for playing #CWLeague! Ladder: https://t.co/hZfHncle57 Next month rego soon @ ...

Out of the four major games covered as part of the CouchWarriors League, Tekken 7 continues to be the most unpredictable and hotly contested. Months of national competition in these online events has failed to show a single dominant champion. Instead, a host of talented and dedicated players are constantly one-upping each other as they struggle to reel in the points totals amassed by ranbat winners in the first months of the year. Six grinders in particular have been consistently scooping top points; Lucky Chloe main Chris “Stuckles” Stuckey, Queensland champion “Harlem”, commu...

The end of a console generation usually means annualised sports games get put into a holding pattern: The graphics are touched up, the physics get tweaked, the stats get adjusted, nothing more. It’s rare for a new mode to be introduced or for major quality of life improvements to be made. Even so, F1 2020 goes above and beyond in these regards. The marquee feature added to F1 2020 is the My Team mode. Instead of transplanting yourself into one of the existing teams, as was the case with previous games, My Team has you create an 11th team to compete with the rest of the field and serve as it...

With 2020 continuing to be a year of surprises, Microsoft have finally come out and detailed a crucial bit of Xbox Series X launch information: the console will be launching sometime in November 2020. However, it’ll be missing one of its crucial launch titles, Halo Infinite, which was delayed until sometime in 2021. In a statement on the Xbox News blog, Microsoft weren’t ready to give an exact date for the launch of their fourth console, or even a price, but were happy to tout that even without Halo Infinite launching this year, there’s still plenty of reasons to invest in a...

July 19th brought us the third event of the new online Smash Ultimate league created by Cospendium and Kanga Esports. With overall leader Joseph “Doctor A Ness” Cresnik sitting out this time, there was the opportunity for a winner to close the gap he’d started to open over the pack – and 142 smashers showed up to try their luck. Oh, and the winner would get to lean back in a new Zenox gaming chair at the end of the day.   A huge thank you to everyone who joined us today. Congratz to the top 8 of the July @cospendium SSBU League! (Especially DD who secured the Gami...

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...
