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.

2019 marks the sixth year the Penny Arcade Expo has come to Melbourne, forming a major part of Melbourne International Games Week, itself a celebration of local game development. There’s always a lot of reasons to come to PAX, which many people outside of Victoria (and Australia) do, but for me, it’s always been more of a social thing. I’ve always viewed the draw of PAX as because it’s so big of a event in uniting all sorts of people interested in the medium, it’s the Super Smash Bros Ultimate of events: everyone is here. People covering games, people making games (both tabletop and ...

It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since League of Legends was released, but here we are. To mark the celebration of one of the biggest games in the world, Riot Games finally lived up to their namesake by announcing a slew of projects, most of which League of Legends related, to entice new audiences to the world of Runeterra in 2020. While a bunch ofthe announcements are so early they’re referred to in codename (such as Project A, a character-based tactical shooter) or can be explained in a sentence (Teamfight Tactics is coming to mobile in 2020), Riot gave some details...

While 2019 has been a quiet year for Sony, 2020 is set to be enormous, with the company announcing the first major details of its upcoming next-generation console: Playstation 5, which will be releasing sometime next year. While the bulk of the announcement was announced via Wired (which also had the initial details of Sony’s next-gen efforts), Sony’s Playstation Blog also shares a few additional details, mostly regarding the still unnamed controller, which may or may not be called the DualShock 5. The first detail is that rumble is gone from the controller, which will be replaced...
