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.

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...

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 ...
