Enter the fray: Battle Arena Melbourne 5

bamCelebrating a milestone as a major in the competitive gaming scene, Couch Warriors are proud to present Battle Arena Melbourne 5 running from May 17th to the 19th. BAM5 will pit the best against the best, the saltiest against the saltiest and separate the champions from the men.


Hot off the heels of February’s Ozhadou Nationals event in Sydney, BAM5 will prove to be the battleground for interstate grudges, friendly rivalries and good old fashioned fighting game fun. Featuring official tournaments for INJUSTICE: Gods Among Us, Super Street Fighter IV AE 2012, King of Fighters, Super Smash Bros and more, there’s plenty on offer to satiate even the most casual fighting game fan.

Special guest Jonny “Humanbomb” Cheng will be rocking tournaments along with Melbourne and Sydney’s fighting game community elite. If playing against the best ain’t your thing, there’s plenty more to enjoy such as interstate exhibition matches, an opening chiptune set by Pselodux on the Friday as well as Tom Taylor, the comic writer of the prequel to INJUSTICE: Gods Among Us signing games and comics for all fans on the Saturday of the event.

If you can’t get in on the action for BAM5, our good mates at Shadowlogic will be streaming the event all weekend on Twitch.tv. But wait, there’s more! New Game Plus will also be there for extensive event coverage, player interviews and our very own qualifier in association with the High School Esports League!

BAM5 is shaping up to be one hell of an event anniversary so don’t forget to tune in and if you’re attending, don’t forget to come and say hi to us! Get hype!
