Results Round-Up – April 16th-17th


Two of the interstate qualifiers for Battle Arena Melbourne 8 took place last weekend, with players competing for seeding at the forthcoming Australian major, which is also a Capcom Pro Tour Asia ranking event.

The first of these qualifiers was run by Stick Addiction at Three D6 in Canberra. This month’s Street Fighter V winner was Beefy who went undefeated with his M.Bison including a confident 3-0 win over Mikey in the grand final.

The second BAM8 qualifier was organised by OzHadou Perth and Pixel Expo at The Glitch last Sunday. First place in Street Fighter V went to SB|SonicFoxFanboy who also went through the bracket undefeated, including a 3-0 victory over YassBass777 in the grand final.
