Hi guys it’s the last CCH (Chris’ Club House) of the year. Spoony will be running it!

CCH will no longer operate on a fortnightly schedule, but instead be on the 2nd and 4th week of every month. This is to avoid clashes with the CouchWarriors ranbat which is on the 3rd week of every month and Chris Ho’s tournaments which will be on the 1st week of every month.


 

Date: Saturday, December 17
Time: 3pm till late
Location: 11 Stanton St, Abbotsford. (Collingwood Library, right next to the Collingwood train station)
Entry Fee: $4 venue fee; anybody that brings either a monitor/console/laptop gets in for free.
Facebook Event Page here.
BYO: screens, consoles and sticks are all appreciated, even if they go unused. The more the merrier.

CouchWarriors is hosting the final ranbat at the CQ hotel right in the Melbourne CBD for a one day  combined fighting game event!

The top 3 placers in their 2016 ranking battle points for Smash 4, Melee and SFV will be competing for a $250 prize bonus – with the highest point placer for each game receiving a medal and a special prize (TBA).

The December Ranbat will bring extra weight- placing in December will earn you double points! (Usually 10 for 1st, 8 for 2nd and 6 for 3rd) The top two current places for Smash 4 and SFV are currently separated by three points, so do your best at the remaining two ranbats in November and December!

Check out the current rankings here.

[Melb] CCH Fighting Game Casuals – Nov 5

cch_fade

The next CCH (Chris’ Club House) will be held at the Collingwood Library at 330PM this Saturday for more casuals n’ chill.

Pyro’s KOFXIV League will be on hiatus this week because he is away at PAX.

Date: Saturday, November 5
Time: 3:30pm till late
Location: 11 Stanton St, Abbotsford. (Collingwood Library, right next to the Collingwood train station)
Entry Fee: $4 venue fee; anybody that brings either a monitor/console/laptop gets in for free.

BYO: screens, consoles and sticks are all appreciated, even if they go unused. The more the merrier.


Pyro’s CCH KOFXIV league: The Prologue

-Swiss format FT3
-Starts at 4PM
-Two tiers T1 and T2

T1 Signup: http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/o4iW8QmbtG
T2 Signup: http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/QafTTU4XIA

Tier 1 is your competitively driven players or veteran players, expect to be playing people that know what they’re doing and are looking to improve even more so. Tier 2 is your new to King of Fighters or I’ve only played it a handful of times. Expect that these players would be looking to get into the game and maybe one day make it to Tier 1. You may choose your own tier, if you think you’re a Tier 1 player, then enter T1 otherwise enter T2. If you’re stomping T2, you may be moved to T1.

Scoring: If you win your set 3-2, you’ll be awarded 3 points. If you’re the loser in this situtation, you’ll only earn 2 points. Effectively you accumulate score over how many games you win regardless of the overall set victory, so consistent attendance will help you here.

End of Season: There will be a prize for the highest number of points for each division, but there may be other prizes to be won should you show vast improvement or community spirit so don’t be discouraged from playing KOFXIV. Pyro will update you on exactly what we’re going to do as soon as he has a good idea.
