CouchWarriors VIC FGC Ranbats for November 2019 were held on Saturday the 16th 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

  2. Rupps
  3. syo

Christian “ORDER|ROF” Dedalija was the first of several defending ranbat champions from October to go back-to-back this month. ROF did take a detour through the Losers side of the bracket after an upset from Taylor “syo” Waugh, but bounced back to avenge the loss and then win two close Grand Final sets.

Tekken 7

  1. Chipzeeh
  2. LuckyBox
  3. AFriendlyTree

A big result for the Tekken points race this month, as Alex “Chipzeeh” Smith improved on last month’s second place finish to take the field down. In doing so, he leapfrogs almost the entire state of Queensland in the standings to reach the top 8!

Mortal Kombat 11

  1. DS|Waz
  2. Victrix|Castiel
  3. ODT|GooGie

This was another ranbat contested by some of the nation’s best, with the top 3 all hailing from different states. But Tasman “DS|Waz” Stoker could not be touched, as he continued preparations for the Interkontinental Kombat finals in Sweden at the end of the month.

DragonBall FighterZ

  1. KHFC|Nolbie
  2. KHFC|Agent17805
  3. Zed

The Kame House Fight Club took over another top 8 here. The unorthodox play of “Agent Numbers” wasn’t enough this month as Nolbie took him down in Winners Finals and finished the job when Agent bounced back for a rematch in Grands.

Samurai Shodown

  1. DS|Somniac
  2. Humzoid
  3. Tomo009

Darksided stalwart Xavier “Somniac” Nardella took out a second straight win in SamSho, setting himself up for what might become a dynasty in Vic ranbat competition.

Soul Calibur VI

  1. Florinxfox
  2. Glen
  3. JEL

Florinxfox was another of our back to back winners for October-November.

Dead or Alive 6

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

Once again we had a committee-member showdown in the Grand Finals of DoA, and once again Dan “CW|Berzerk” Chlebowczyk came away the victor!

GGXrd Rev2

    1. ashxu
    2. arobius
    3. Homu|Javi


  1. Silent
  2. snek
  3. Morpher

Defending champion Silent and returning talent snek traded sets at the business end of the bracket, but it was Silent’s Byakuya which carried the day, giving us another back-to-back winner.


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

With previous scene dominator ragkyo returning to China, Homu|Javi was able to step up and claim the Victorian BBTAG title – going undefeated on the day.


Congratulations to all of our top-placed competitors from November! 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! One important thing to remember when reading these standings. At the creation of CouchWarrio...

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 ...

With the world under lockdown, it’s the perfect time for all sorts of gaming, be it video games or even tabletop gaming, or even watching people play games. Wizards of the Coasts are well aware of this, and with their upcoming D&D Live event happening from June 19 – 21, they’re bringing a heap of celebrity players and DM’s together virtually for a good cause: play games and raise money for Red Nose Day. The talent on offer is particularly big, with actors such as David Harbour (Stranger Things), Brandon Routh (Legends of Tomorrow), Deborah Ann Woll (Daredevil), Janina ...

As we’ve experienced a blockbuster half year on account of video gaming, its not unusual for a few refined titles to fly under the radar. One in particular that I absolutely adore is Nioh 2; the follow up to one of 2017’s best games. While it is an action adventure game at heart, it primarily embraces many elements of the increasingly popular Masocore genre. For fans of games like Ninja Gaiden, Onimusha and the universally lauded Dark Souls, you’ll be expecting steep difficulty curves and light RPG-style stat management to complement the reflex and pattern-intensive flow of ...

You might not have heard of KartRider, a massively popular game in South Korea, but Nexon is making a big push to get the series introduced to the West in 2020. While KartRider Drift will be hitting PC & consoles in the future, KartRider Rush+ is coming to mobile devices and is currently taking pre-registration. Pre-registering will not only get your account ready, but will help contribute to a number of incentives to get you ready when the game launches, such as additional currencies, cosmetics, karts and more. The game is set to feature a huge amount of content for a mobile racing game, i...
